description: XIM Advanced Technology UMA White is a high performance
water-based Bonder that has both primer and adhesive-like properties.
It provides excellent adhesion and wet adhesion to “Hard-to-Paint”
surfaces, even when wet. Sanding may not be necessary for most clean
and dull paintable surfaces, but sanding or dulling the surface is required
for maximum adhesion, specifically on surfaces such as tile, porcelain
and glazed block. UMA can be used for both indoor and outdoor applications.
and can be used with Oil/Alkyd, Latex, Urethane, Epoxy and Lacquer top
coats. Advanced Technology UMA will form a hard film when fully cured.
Its resistance to scratch testing can vary with the type of surface
and the degree of cure, however, when full cured, they will provide
long lasting adhesion. * For maximum Rust Protection, Use XIM 360 Rust
Use: This Bonder is an ideal prime coat for Wood, Metals, Plaster,
Hardboard, Most Plastics, Fiberglass, Formica, Tile, Porcelain, Glazed
Block, Glass, etc. Also recommended for priming Kynar and Silicone Polyester
pre-coated siding. Note: Because there are many types of surfaces, plastics
and composite materials, always test a small area first for adhesion
and topcoat compatibility before starting. When priming Kynar and Silicone
Polyester pre-painted siding at least two test patches in different
areas is a must to demonstrate adhesion that is acceptable to you. Not
recommended for tubs, sinks or showers where continuous water or hot
water contact occurs. Not recommended for use on polyethylene, polypropylene,
Teflon or nylon.. Not recommended for below grade application. For extra
corrosion protection on iron and steel use XIM 360 Rust Inhibiting Primer.
On extremely porous surfaces or severe staining types of wood additional
coats of UMA may be required. Certain staining agents, such as tannic
acid or mineral salts from water may require XIM’s solvent based
stain killers. Advanced Technology dries to touch in about 30 to 45
minutes and will reach full hardness in 7 to 10 days depending on temperature,
humidity and film thickness. It can be nib sanded after about 3 hours
and lightly sanded 24 hours after application. It can be used for indoor
or outdoor applications and can be top coated with all top coats including
latex, oil-alkyds, lacquers, urethanes and epoxies. Shelf life is 36
months, unopened at room temperature of 77 degrees F.
Preparation: Advanced Technology UMA is ready to apply from
the can. If tinting, use universal tinting colors. Do not exceed two
(2) ounces of tint per gallon. Shake or mix well before using. Surface
Preparation: Surface must be clean and dry, free from all grease, wax,
oil, polish, loose paint, dirt, rust or other contamination. Clean with
a strong abrasive detergent, rinse well and allow to dry. Scrub moldy
or mildewed surfaces with bleach and rinse well. When priming hard,
glossy surfaces, metal or pre-finished siding clean per SSPC-SP1, which
is solvent cleaning. Wipe down the surface with XIM GON Cleaner or Xylene.
Do not use mineral spirits, turpentine solvents that will leave oily
residues. For very hard, glossy surfaces, roughing the surface with
silicon carbide sandpaper before applying the Bonder necessary for best
to Apply: Apply this Bonder by synthetic fiber brush, ¼
inch synthetic roller or by spray. Avoid any excess foaming by thoroughly
wetting the brush or roller with water before applying. The temperature
of the surface and the surrounding air should be between 35 deg. F and
100 deg. F. It will dry to touch in about 30-45 minutes under standard
conditions (77 deg. F and 50% relative humidity). Thicker coats will
take longer to dry. It will generally become hard in about 7 - 10 days.
They can be top-coated in 3 hours after application. When top coating
with 2-component paints allow 24 hours before painting. Do not paint
in direct sun or on a hot surface. Stop application two hours before
a heavy dew or rain. If possible plan your painting to avoid rain, moisture
and high humidity for the first 24 hours of curing. Advanced Technology
covers about 450 square feet per gallon. Caulk seams and edges after
Clean-up with soap and water. If the UMA “sets-up”, or when
cleaning up splatters or spills use warm water or lacquer thinner.
Building Material Plastic: More and more plastics are used in the building
industry, including PVC sheeting and piping, vinyl shutters, vinyl molding
and mill work, laminated Formica paneling and cabinets as well as fiberglass
garage doors and other molded parts. First, remove old and loose paint
then clean away wax, polish, grease, oil and other contaminants from
the surface with a strong abrasive detergent. Wipe the surface with
a cleaning solvent such as XIM GON Cleaner or xylene. Dry, then scuff
sand the surface for maximum adhesion. Apply the XIM Bonder. wait 3
hours and topcoat. Test for adhesion before starting the job. Advanced
Technology UMA is recommended for priming Kynar and Silicone Polyester
pre-coated siding. When priming Kynar and Silicone Polyester pre-painted
siding at least two test patches in different areas is a must to demonstrate
adhesion that is acceptable to you.
Tile, Glazed Block and Brick, Porcelain: Decorative surfaces such as
these can be restored and painted. First remove old paint and debris.
Repair or patch any broken or damaged areas. Then clean away any wax,
polish, grease, oil and other contaminants with a strong abrasive detergent.
Wipe the surface with a cleaning solvent such as XIM GON Cleaner or
xylene. For maximum adhesion scuff sand or etch the surface with XIM’s
etching cream, Etch-I-M, rinse well to remove any etching residues and
allow to dry. Apply the UMA Bonder and allow to dry for 3 hours then
apply the topcoat. Not recommended for sinks, tubs or shower areas where
continuous water or hot water can be present. Note: where flexible seams
or soft caulking are present, do not paint over with the UMA. Always
plan your job ahead and caulk after painting. Always caulk edges or
seams that can trap and hold moisture and, therefore, become the source
of coating failure. For exterior jobs - where high water contact is
expected or where moisture or dew may accumulate, two coats of the top
coat paint are recommended.
Non-Ferrous Metals: With XIM Advanced Technology UMA brand Bonder you
can get a long lasting, durable job when painting aluminum doors and
window frames, aluminum and copper flashing and trim as well as galvanized
steel. Clean away all corrosion and any old paint, dirt, wax and grease.
Wipe the surface with a cleaning solvent such as XIM’s GON Prep
cleaner. Allow to dry then apply the UMA Bonder (only one coat is required)
Allow the UMA to dry for three hours, then apply the top coat.
