Application Data

Michem® Flex P1883 may be applied via flexo, gravure or smooth roll coater. When possible, corona or flame treat substrates prior to priming and dry thoroughly with hot, circulating air. May be used for in-line or off-line processes. Recommended application weight as an extrusion primer is between 0.1 - 1.0 dry g/m2. Heat seal coatings require heavier application weights, typically 1-3 dry g/m2. EZ Cup Viscosity - #3 Cup, 17 - 19 sec.
