Eko bond aluminum prep

Posted: Sunday, March 19, 2017 10:55 AM Quote
I'm getting ready to cover an experimental Rans S7. I had no plan to prime the aluminum wing structure. I had planned to clean the glue surface with acetone and scuff with scotch bright before applying the eko bond. On the powder coated fuselage and tail feathers I had planned the same process with a more aggressive scuff.

Will the eko bond adhere bare aluminum and power coated steel as desired with these techniques?

Thanks! Dave

If the powder coated are prepped as you describe, the Ecobond will adhere fine.  I have glued to aluminum surfaces with little or no prep, and the adhesion has been fine.
