Improved adhesion with greater security and durability
Since surface preparation adds another step to the installation process, there is a tendency to reduce or even eliminate it all together, making priming an often overlooked aspect of flooring.
Using the right concrete primer for the job is just as important as selecting the right self-levelling underlay, repair patch, membrane or adhesive.
Tiling primers: Smart innovations
Applying the right floor primer can greatly improve adhesion of self-levelling underlay to subfloors resulting in a more secure and durable installation. Primers are materials used as a preparatory coating to enhance adhesion of overlaying compounds. They regulate absorption rate of porous substrates and improve adhesion to non-porous materials. Various impervious substrates are becoming a norm.
Uses of appropriate primers are necessary to ensure good bonding to these substrates. Failure to do so can lead to de-bonding of coverings.
