The Importance of Using Concrete Primers

Using a concrete primer offers several key benefits that significantly improve the quality and longevity of the final concrete finish.  These include :-

  • Enhanced Adhesion
  • Improved Durability
  • Protection Against Moisture
  • Protection Against Oil Contamination
  • Reduced Efflorescence

CoverTec offers two types of  concrete primers

1. Penetrating Primers

Penetrating primers like our CoverSeal DS160 are designed to deeply penetrate the concrete substrate, forming a chemical bond that strengthens the surface. They are ideal for applications where increased adhesion and surface hardness are desired. The also pug the voids in the concrete to prevent moisture transmission from the concrete substrate to the surface coatings. They protect against issues caused by excessive moisture, such as blistering, peeling, efflolescence, or the growth of mold and mildew.

2. Topical  Primers

Topical primers are formulated to promote adhesion between the existing concrete surface and new coatings . They create a strong bond between the existing concrete and new coting, ensuring compatibility and preventing delamination.  CoverShield Primer WB is fast drying water based epoxy primer for concrete. Primer WB  provides a strong bonding layer between the concrete and the subsequent expoxy , polyurethane or poly aspartic top coat, promoting adhesion and preventing issues like pinholrs, fish eyes peeling, blistering, or pinholes or fish eyes due to out gassing or moisture drive. CoverShield Primer OS has been specially engineered to work with oil contaminated concrete.  This  Oil Stop product will fuse with oil in the concrete and prevent issues like “bleedback”poor adhesion and discoloration in the top coat.

Concrete primers play a vital role in ensuring the longevity, performance, and aesthetics of concrete surfaces. They enhance adhesion, protect against moisture, and improve durability. By selecting the right primer, properly preparing the surface, and following correct application techniques, you can achieve exceptional results. Don't underestimate the importance of concrete primers in your construction projects for a lasting and visually appealing finish.
