Coat of paint as a preparation coat, making susequent coats more effective.
Coating the backing on the adhesive side with a thin layer of adhesive-like material that serves as a bonding agent between the adhesive and the backing.

Priming in botany and agriculture is a form of seed planting preparation in which the seeds are pre-soaked before planting.
During scientific experiments that require high levels of accuracy and involve liquid chemicals, the equipment that will come into contact with the liquid chemicals are primed. Priming, in this context, is a cleaning and preparation process that involves cleaning the equipment with the liquid chemical it will come into contact with during the experiment. The process is used to minimize contamination and therefore obtain results that are more accurate.
