This product has been discontinued.Once a bulldog clamps down, there’s no letting go. Bulldog® Waterborne Adhesion Promoter fosters adhesion of waterborne coatings to raw and primed plastics and pre-painted metal. Its unique formula eliminates the need for a primer/sealer, and it is VOC-compliant nationwide. Use with Bulldog® Abrasive Prep & Clean to ensure a clean grip every time. Good boy.

After cleaning with PrepAll Wax & Grease Remover and Bulldog Abrasive Cleaner, mist the part with water. If it sheets, you are ready to go.
Bulldog is formulated with special resins that are found in high quality automotive lacquers. This special blend wets the surface completely, promoting greater flow and leveling which leads to superior appearance.
Yes, Bulldog is considered a specialty coating and must have a VOC of less than 7.0 lb/gal (840g/L). The VOC of Bulldog is 6.23 lb/gal (748 g/L). This is significantly lower than most other adhesion promoters and specialty coatings.
After Bulldog is applied, it needs 5-10 minutes flash time before the application of a base coat. However, it can be effective for up to 24 hours. If the part is coated with Bulldog and left overnight, the base coat can be applied without any problem. If the part is left over the weekend, it needs to be scuffed again, tacked and recoated with one coat of Bulldog before applying the base coat.
Up to 1 : 4.
The microfibers, which allow Bulldog to fill 320 grit scratches, give Bulldog a hazy appearance. When the solvents evaporate, the fibers have the same refractive index as the coating polymers, allowing it to disappear. Bulldog sprays clear and dries to a class A water-white finish.
We recommend the use of PrepAll Wax & Grease Remover, along with Bulldog Abrasive Cleaner and scuff pad before the application of Bulldog.
Yes, it can be applied to metal, rubber, fiberglass, plastic and primer. Bulldog seals repaired areas and other automotive surfaces.
It will not affect original paint because it is clear. It will actually help in blend-out areas to provide a smoother finish. Some painters use Bulldog to improve the flop/alignment of metallic pigments.
Yes. Clean the surface with Prep All to remove dirt and grease prior to applying Bulldog.
Yes, it can be tacked after the solvents flash off. This usually takes 15-20 minutes.
The unique properties of Bulldog are due to a one-component polymerization reaction between styrene, polyester resin and various acrylate monomers. Once Bulldog is applied and solvents have flashed out, the resins react to form a highly cross-linked resin coating. The product’s strong adhesion promoting properties are due to the varied types of acrylic monomers used in the formulation. The filling, sealing and flow out properties of the final coating are due to fairly high solids as well as inclusion of various types of fibers in the formulation.
Not really. Either gun will work for spraying Bulldog. Conventional guns should be set for 30-40 psi, while HVLP guns should be set as recommended by the HVLP gun manufacturer.
Typically, we recommend 30-40 psi, but it could be adjusted to whatever pressure the painter is comfortable using.
Yes, it can be added to primer in the ratio of up to 1/3 Bulldog.
Clear coat should be catalyzed first before adding Bulldog.
When it comes to our competition, there’s no dog in the fight. Bulldog saves more in time and materials than any other product out there. If a single job adds up to this much, imagine how much you could fetch over the long run.
