Earthborn Ecopro Silicate Primer is a basecoat / primer for use with Earthborn Ecopro Silicate Masonry Paint. It can be used to stabilise any mineral surface that is very absorbent or powdery.
The paint and primer together form a chemical bond with underlying materials to create a water and weather-resistant barrier which enables the building to "breathe".
It can be used on interior and exterior mineral surfaces, e.g. stone, masonry, concrete, pebble dash, plaster and sound silicate-based paint surfaces, and it's especially suitable for renovations.
Please Note: This primer is not suitable for use over gloss, lacquer, acrylic or oil-based paints.
Surfaces to be primed must be clean, dry, absorbent and free from dust, dirt, grease or any other surface contaminants.
Always do a test area including top-coat before starting any project to assess product suitability and final finish. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on the container at all times.
Do not use if the working temperature is below 8°C or expected to fall below 8°C within 24 hours of application.
Wash brushes and other application equipment immediately after use with warm water.
The Ecopro Silicate System requires all surfaces to be primed with a single coat of Ecopro Silicate Primer followed by two coats of Earthborn Ecopro Silicate Masonry Paint. The first coat of Masonry Paint must be diluted with 10-20% Ecopro Silicate Primer.
