Activators, also known as primers or adhesion agents, are always used when the adhesive cannot bond two materials on its own due to their surface finish or when faster curing is required. Bonds between metallic and non-metallic materials using an anaerobic adhesive, for example, are improved with the use of an activator.

Drei Bond supplies two types of activators:

  • Spray activators, which are very simple to use.
  • Liquid activators, which adhere to the material surface and only cure once contact is made with the adhesive.
