Primer for Self Levelling Compound

Primer for Self Levelling Compound

Product code: PRIMER 1LTR

Availability: In stock

Quick Overview:

Prepour Primer is a ready to use dispersion primer for sealing substrates prior to laying Hotwire Self Levelling Compound (SLC).  Prepour will help to stop pin-holing in the finished product and will greatly improve the adhesion of the SLC.  Prepour can also be used as a bond improving agent in many cementitious tile adhesives prior to the fixing and laying of ceramic tiles onto old tiles, well supported wooden substrates and other smooth surfaces.

For further information please see Product Description and Technical Specification below.

* Required Fields



Priming is crucial prior to the application of Hotwire self levelling compound. Failing to properly prime the floor will lead to reduced adhesion, reduced flow and greatly increase the inincidence of pin holing in the finished product. Prepour primer should be applied directly from the container and should not be diluted. 

Surface Preparation

Surfaces must be dry, sound, free from dirt, dust and separating agents.

Product Preparation

Apply prepour with a short nap paint roller or a paintbrush in a crosswise fashion in and even coat and will cover approximately 15-20m2/litre. The approximate drying time of the primer is 40-60 minutes at 50% relative humidity and 20oC.  Further applications can only be done after the first coat has thoroughly dried.
