Tilemaster Prime + Grip extended information
Coverage: Approximately 45 – 65m² per 5kg (depending on porosity of surface/substrate)
Preparation of all substrates is crucial to the success and longevity of all installations. All substrates, as stated in BS 5385 and BS 8203, must be rigid, flat, clean, dry and sound and be free of any contaminants. Anything that could compromise adhesion to the substrate, such as dust, dirt, oil, grease, laitance, sealers, waxes and curing agents will need to be mechanically removed. Ensure that all substrates and backgrounds are strong enough to carry the weight of the compound as well as all finished floor and wall coverings and fixing materials.
Shake or stir Tilemaster Prime+ Grip before application in order to ensure equal dispersion of the aggregates contained within the primer. Apply Tilemaster Prime+ Grip evenly to the whole surface to be treated with a paint roller, brush or sponge. Do not over apply as this can cause the primer to skin over, only a thin coat is required ensuring that you have 100% coverage. Once applied allow the Tilemaster Prime+ Grip to become touch dry before tiling / levelling over the primer. This will take between 15 – 60 minutes depending on the ambient temperature and the porosity of the substrate. Higher temperatures and porous substrates will reduce the curing time, whilst low temperatures and non-porous substrates will increase the curing time of the primer. Once primed, avoid trafficking the primed area.
Re-seal the primer container after use to prevent evaporation and possible contamination of the primer.
Wash tools immediately after application with warm water.
