Primer: A primer is not normally required. However, on weak or porous concrete it is advisable to prime with Flowprime SF. For floors suffering from oil contamination, where oil has penetrated the slab, it is available to prime with Flowprime OCS. For floors where there is no damp proof membrane in the construction of the floor or if the concrete is new and has not had time to dry out thoroughly, it is advisable to use Flowprime DPM.
Surface Preparation: Surfaces to be treated must be clean, sound, free from oil or other contaminants, flaky paints, laitance and dust. Smooth and dense surfaces must be mechanically abraded to provide a key.
