Wax-Tape® Primer

Wax-Tape® Primer is a blend of microcrystalline waxes, plasticizers, and corrosion inhibitors (no clay fillers). It has a paste-like consistency and is designed to displace moisture and wet the surface, ensuring adhesion of the tape.

End Use

As a surface conditioner for above and belowground metal surfaces prior to application of Trenton Wax-Tapes.

Application Procedures

Wire brush and wipe the surface clean and as dry as possible. Apply Wax-Tape Primer by hand, rubbing and pressing the primer firmly onto the surface, especially if the surface is wet, cold or rusty to displace any moisture and ensure adhesion to the surface. After application of the primer, Wax-Tape may be applied.


One gallon can, four cans per carton. Available in brown or white.
