Alpha S2002 is a neoprene based metal primer for use with two-part neoprene adhesives such as Alpha S2000 & Alpha S5001. This primer ensures that a good adhesive bond is made on various types of metal.
Metal primer system
Developed to be used in conjunction with two-part neoprene adhesives such as S2000 and S5001.
- Adhesion promoter for bonding rubber materials to metal, especially steel.

The performance data presented here has been determined by Alpha Adhesives & Sealants Limited standard test methods and are average values that should not be used for specification purposes. Our recommendations on the use of this product are based on tests believed to be reliable. It is advised that users conduct their own tests to determine the suitability of the product for their specific application.
HANDLING & APPLICATIONS
The general application information presented here is based upon typical conditions determined by Alpha Adhesives & Sealants Limited testing. Our recommendations on the use of this product are based on methods believed to be reliable. It is advised that users conduct their own tests to determine the suitability of the product for their specific application.
To improve the adhesion strength of the bond, it is advised that the metal surface should be abraded.
All substrates must be clean of any dust, grit, loose material, wax, grease and oil using Alpha T559 or a suitable cleaner. The metal surface to be bonded should be dry.
- Apply Alpha S2002 Primer to the prepared metal surface.
- Allow to dry for 10 to 20 minutes.
- Apply an initial coat of the two-part neoprene adhesive being used, before following the standard application procedure for that adhesive.
The bond strength for a bonding system that uses S2002 primer in conjunction with a two-part neoprene adhesive (e.g. S2000, S5001) will increase appreciably within the next 48 hours and will develop still further in service. For the best heat resistance, leave at room temperature for 7 days, before subjecting to maximum in-service temperatures for the adhesive.
Alpha Cleaner T559 should be used to remove residues from surfaces.
HEALTH & SAFETY INFORMATION
Alpha S2002 is classified as hazardous according to Directive EC 1272/2008. Please refer to the Alpha S2002 Safety Data Sheet for further health & safety information.
Alpha S2002 should be stored in its original container, with the lid tightly secured, in dry conditions and at temperatures between 5°C and 25°C. Alpha S2002 will keep satisfactorily for up to 18 months from date of manufacture if stored according to the recommended conditions.
