Mapei Eco Prim Grip is a multi-purpose, ready-to-use bonding promoter primer with a very low VOC emissions for render, smoothing and levelling compounds and adhesives for ceramic tiles.
Eco Prim Grip is a solvent-free, primer composed of synthetic resin in water dispersion and selected inert materials with excellent bond strength, resistance to water and ageing. It guarantees a rough keying surface ideal for render, smoothing and levelling compounds, thus ensuring an excellent bond on smooth substrates and substrates with low absorbency, reducing and evening out absorption of water of absorbent surfaces. Once dry, it guarantees a tough bond of any cementitious render on various types of substrate: concrete, lightweight cellular cement blocks, bricks, stone, plasterboard, wood, ceramic, metal, render, gypsum, etc.
Mapei Eco Prim Grip is best used as a multi-purpose, ready-to-use primer for internal and external floors and walls. Eco Prim Grip may be used to improve the bond
of all types of cement, gypsum and lime-based plasters on substrates made from concrete, brickwork, vibro-compressed concrete blocks, lightweight blocks and gypsum.
Eco Prim Grip is also suitable for improving the bond of adhesives for ceramics, smoothing and levelling compounds on non-absorbent surfaces, such as ceramic, terrazzo and natural stone floors. It is also ideal for the application of render on concrete, brickwork, substrates, etc. Application of smoothing and levelling compounds
on old ceramic, terrazzo and natural stone floors. Ideal for laying ceramic and natural stone floors directly on top of old ceramic floors.
Eco Prim Grip is a ready-to-use grey latex which is easy to apply using either a roller or a brush. Eco Prim Grip is non-flammable and has an extremely low emission level of volatile organic compounds (VOC). Therefore, the product is considered non-hazardous for those who use the product and final users of the environments where it is applied. It may also be stored without taking particular precautions.
Eco Prim Grip is ready-to-use, no dilution is required. Do not use as adhesion promoter for adhesives and levelling compounds on screeds and power-trowelled concrete. In such cases use Eco Prim T. Substrates must be clean, dry, well-cured and free from oil, grease, cement laitance and loose parts. There is no need to wet the surface before applying Eco Prim Grip.
Eco Prim Grip may be applied to the substrate with either a roller or by brush or roller. The render or smoothing and levelling compound may be applied once Eco Prim Grip is dry. The minimum waiting time is from 15 to 60 minutes according to the surrounding conditions and the absorption of the substrate. It’s possible to apply a second coat of Eco Prim Grip from the application of the first coat after a long time.
- Waiting Time Before Applying Render: 15-20 minutes at 23°C / 50% RH: (dependant on substrate’s temperature and porosity)
- Waiting Time Before Applying Smoothing Compound at 23°C / 50% RH: : 30 minutes (dependant on substrate’s temperature and porosity)
- Theoretical Consumption: Varies between 0.20 and 0.30 kg/m² according to the absorption of the substrate
- Colour: Grey
- Available in 5 and 10 Kg
