Before tiling all areas should be dry and free from dust or loose materials.
A primer is designed to seal and stabilise the substrate prior to applying cement based adhesives and self levelling compounds.
A primer with grit is ideal for using over materials that are difficult to remove or need to stay in place such as existing tiles, vinyl floor tiles old bitumen. It is a ready mixed, ready to use, rapid drying primer that can be used on both absorbent and non-absorbent substrates. It provides a textured "+ Grip" surface which gives an excellent bonding surface for tile adhesives and self-levelling compounds. It gives added confidence when tiling and/or self-levelling directly onto smooth, non-absorbent and absorbent surface due to its excellent bond enhancing properties. It dries in as little as 15 minutes.
A Tanking System is an advanced sealing system designed to give a waterproof coating for the protection of water sensitive backgrounds such as plaster and plasterboard. Tanking System prepares and waterproofs the substrate in preparation for applying tiles. The system produces a barrier to moisture. The Tanking slurry is flexible and will accommodate light movement and/or vibration which may be expected under normal conditions of use. Tanking System is ideal for areas exposed to submerged, wet and damp conditions such as showers, wet rooms and swimming pools. The system is suitable for use internally and externally.
