Coverage

Coverage depends on the coated film depth and the porosity and texture of the rigid bound sub-base. As a guide a single 5kg sachet of EASYPrime will cover a minimum of approximately 8.0 sq.mtr.

Brief usage instructions

Before you start to use the product

The supporting sub-base should be stable and free from the risk of movement or heave. Allow for adequate falls and drainage from the finished surface. Extra precautions may be necessary to ensure the area is prepared properly. Certain types of tile and stone paving may be unduly porous and hence prone to surface discolouration. Natural stone and porous, un-glazed tiles are particularly at risk from permanent discolouration. To avoid this always carry out a small trial test, applying freshly mixed EASYPrime to a spare tile to determine whether staining is likely.

Mixing up

Always add powder to clean, cold water. Using a paddle mixer slowly add the EASYPrime powder to no more than 2 litres of cold clean water. Mix slowly for 3 to 5 minutes to give a smooth lump-free slurry without creating excessive air bubbles from the mixing process.

Using the product

Apply EASYPrime to the back of the paving to a thickness of 1-2mm using a roller or brush. The paving should be then laid and levelled into the bedding mortar layer with the required joint spacing.
