Since surface preparation adds another step to the installation process, there is a tendency to reduce or even eliminate floor primer 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-leveling underlayment, repair patch, membrane or adhesive.

Floor primer: Smart benefits 

Applying the right floor primer can greatly improve adhesion of self-leveling underlayments to subfloors, resulting in a more secure, durable installation.

  • Nearly all of the water used in mixing self-levelers is used in the curing process, so primers are also critical to keep that water in the mixture, allowing it to cure properly.
  • Without a primer, water can escape from the mixture into the pores of the substrate, causing performance problems due to improper cure.
  • Floor primer enables self-leveling underlayments to perform as designed, maximizing flow and providing optimum strength development.
