Hi Folks,

Will Sikaflex stick to a gelshield epoxy coating or would it be best to prime the gelshield with Primacon or similar first.

Many thanks

Robert

Hope you all have a great weekend

There may be some info in the Sikaflex Marine handbook

Id think direct to the Gelshield would be preferable to sticking it to a paint coating such as Primocon.

For a structural bond then you may need to use a Sikaflex primer, but see the manual

As VicS says. If you are talking of a sealant for e.g. skin fittings then Sikaflex alone will be perfectly OK. My hull is gelshielded and has had skin fittings replaced using Sikaflex for many years now.
