PS1 is a ready to use mineral based primer or surface treatment which is designed to control many high suction backgrounds whilst still remaining vapour open. PS2 can also be used to consolidate and stabalise problematic surfaces and substrates and provide additional bond strength prior to the application of MPL1, FP1 or Silic8 Adhesive. PS1 can also be use to help protect plaster or brickwork while remaining vapout open. The Silic8 range is the only plaster primer on the market to be independently tested for vapour diffusion to reassure you that water vapour is not trapped in the fabric of your building.
Some typical substrate types: Masonry backgrounds, magnesium silicate boards, historic or new plasters (lime, cement or gypsum), wood, and wood type boards, terracotta and some ceramic tiles and paints*. An in-house testing facility for bond strength is offered if you have specific requirements**
Coverage: On an even surface, PS1 will cover approximately 1.7m² (5.5kg covers up to 10m²). Allow more for uneven surfaces.
Use: Apply with a brush or continuous spray. The surface to be primed must be clean, sound and dry. Where the surface is powdery or friable, work the primer in to the affected areas with a brush.
Ensure that surfaces not to be primed are protected, particularly glass. Wash splashes, tools and brushes with water. Do not store or use in extremes of temperatures (<5 or above 30C). If splashed on the skin wash off immediately with water. Wear the appropriate Personal Protective Equipment; Refer to the Safety Data Sheet before use
* We do not take responsibility for compatibility with any of the suggested or unlisted substrates types.
**A charge is made for this service and is only indicative of actual bond strength. Not all substrates are suitable for testing at our facility. Due to the variation of substrate types we recommend that a representative area of substrate to be primed is first tested to satisfy all your requirements
