Additives & Primers

IMG 8410

The key to success when installing Adhesive products, is to achieve a good bond between the substrate, waterproofing membranes and tile adhesives. All manufacturers produce a range of primers for internal and external use.

Additive improves the strength of all powder adhesives, unnecessary in polymer fortified Tile Adhesives.

Old Stonemason ramblings:  All surfaces must be free of oil, paint, dirt/grime and dust.  Rain damaged slabs are to be ground to remove the laitance. A simple test is to pour a small amount of water on your floor.  If it doesn't absorbed, DON'T TILE.  Applying a primer, and using the same manufacturers adhesives, will give you a warranty.

It is a well-known fact that Primers, apart from preparing the substrate for the adhesive, enhances Better Adhesion, Better workability, Easier notching, Slightly more coverage, Longer Dry Time.
