New Tilers Primer Plus

TILERS PRIMER PLUS

  • Provides a textured grit finish to difficult substrates before tiling
  • Ready mixed & ready to use
  • Solvent-free formulation

DESCRIPTION

Arc Tilers Primer Plus is a solvent-free, ready mixed primer for both absorbent and non-absorbent substrates.  It provides a textured grit finish enhancing the bond between tile adhesives and/or levelling compounds and the substrate below.  It can be tiled or levelled over after 90 minutes on absorbent surfaces  and 2 hours on non-absorbent surfaces, depending on site conditions and temperatures.  Suitable for both internal and external applications.

Arc Tilers Primer Plus can be used on most substrates including:

·        Existing ceramic & porcelain tiles ·        Existing natural stone tiles ·        Steel/metal surfaces
·        Sand/cement screed ·        Concrete ·        Plywood
·        Underfloor heating ·        Tile backer boards ·        Anhydrite screeds
·        Flooring grade asphalt & bitumen ·        Plaster ·        Plasterboard
·        Fibre cement sheets ·        Sand/cement render ·        Concrete brick/block
·        Existing vinyl tiles ·        Fibreglass ·        Green screed
   

 

PREPARATION

All surfaces must be sound and free from dust, dirt, grease, oil and any other contaminants.  Any laitance or treatments must be removed.  Concrete, plaster, sand/cement screeds, anhydrite screeds and power floated concrete must be fully cured before application.  Temperature of the substrate must be above 5°C.  Underfloor heating systems must be switched off 24 hours before application.  Timber and over-boarded substrates must be rigidly braced and strong enough to take the expected loading.  For specific preparation instructions by substrate type; please refer to the technical data sheet.

APPLICATION

Product is supplied ready to use but should be stirred well before use to ensure an even distribution of the aggregate.  Once mixed, use straight from the tub or use a roller tray.

Apply the primer evenly with a brush or roller over the entire surface.  Do not allow to pond or do not apply in thick layers.  Allow the primer to become touch dry before applying adhesive or leveller.  This will take between 15-60 minutes depending on the temperature and porosity of the substrate.  The primer should be diluted 1:1 with water when applying to absorbent surfaces.

Wash tools immediately after application with warm water.

Not suitable for application on soft bituminous materials or painted walls.  Not suitable for use with solvent based adhesives.  Substrates must be strong enough to hold tiles.
