A 100% pure acrylic plastic sealant
Super Primer™ is a unique, pure acrylic elastomeric plastic sealant, primer and adhesive for concrete, brick, tile, EPDM rubber, stucco, wood, metal, and many hard-to-stick surfaces. It leaves a clear and slightly tacky surface that substantially increases adhesion for Ames'® coatings. Much more powerful than a water repellant, Super Primer™ seals against water damage and seepage while penetrating deeply into the surface to strengthen and bind together the molecules of the surface it is applied to. Super Primer™ helps stop concrete efflorescence, and blocks most gasses penetrating concrete, mortar, or stucco. Super Primer™ is elastic and highly resistant to cracking and peeling as the surface expands and contracts, even at -35 degrees F. It is easy to use, environmentally friendly, water-base, nearly odorless, non-flammable, and VOC free. Simply brush, roll or spray. Clean up with water.

Super Primer™ is used as a concrete additive
When added to the water of a concrete mix at 25% ratio, Super Primer™ substantially reduces cracking in concrete and increases crush strength from an estimated 2800 PSI to 8800 PSI. Seamless concrete polymerized with Super Primer™ will be impervious to water penetration and will prevent efflorescence. Coatings will have substantially better adhesion to concrete that has been strengthened by Super Primer™. The set time will speed up, and the long-term cure time will be reduced from an estimated 28 days to 22 days at 70 degrees F ambient temperature. Important: The user should always run a test batch when polymerizing concrete to determine the saturation ratio or proportions that work best in their application.
Super Primer™ may be added to latex coatings to increase adhesion.
Super Primer™ is a useful additive to such products when the surface is chalking or deteriorating. The approximate ratio is up to one pint Super Primer™ to one gallon coating. Run a test patch to determine that you have the proper ratio to successfully complete your application.
Super Primer™ is water-base, nearly odorless, non-flammable and contains no dangerous pesticides. Super Primer™ may be applied to most previously coated surfaces.
Covers up to 500 to 1,000 square feet per five when used as a coating
