Field of application

  • Primer in Remmers water vapour diffusion (WDD) systems
  • Bonding layer on old coatings and ceramic coverings
  • Primer in DIBt approved systems for common rooms (general building inspectorate approval Z-156.605-1414)


  • Water-based
  • Excellent adhesion on many substrates
  • Water vapour diffusion capable
  • Contains no plasticisers, nonylphenols or alkylphenols
  • Physiologically harmless once fully cured
  • Preparation
    • Substrate requirements

      The substrate must be firm, dimensionally stable, capable of bearing loads and free of loose constituents, dust, oil, grease, rubber marks and other substances that could interfere with adhesion.

      The tensile strength of the surface of the substrate must be at least 1.5 N/mm² on average (smallest individual value of at least 1.0 N/mm²), and the compressive strength must be at least 25 N/mm².

      Substrates must have reached their moisture balance and must also be protected against moisture penetration from the reverse side, including during use.

      Concretemax. 6 m% moisture

      Cement screedmax. 6 m% moisture

      Anhydrite screed max. 0.3 m% moisture

      Magnesite screed2-4 m% moisture

      In the case of anhydrite and magnesite screeds, moisture cannot be permitted to penetrate from building elements or the ground.

      As a general principle, systems which permit the diffusion of water vapour are recommended for use with anhydrite and magnesite screeds.

      The suitability of the coating on ceramic coverings, old coatings, levelling compounds und interior mastic asphalts (AS-IC 10) must be checked beforehand, if needed trail surfaces must be set up.

    • Preparations

      Prepare the substrate by suitable means, e.g. steel shot blasting, so that it meets the specifications listed above.

      Broken out or missing areas in the substrate should be filled flush with the surface using Remmers PCC systems or Remmers EP mortars.

  • Preparation
    • Mixing ratio comp. A 85 : comp. B 15
    • Mixing time 3 min
    • Combination container

      Add the entire quantity of the hardener (component B) to the base compound (component A).

      Mix thoroughly with a slow-speed electric mixer
      (approx. 300 - 400 rpm).

      Pour the mixture into a separate container and mix again thoroughly.

      Mix for at least 3 minutes.

      Insufficient mixing is indicated by streaks forming.

      On higly absorbent substrates the product can be diluted with water up to 10 % by mass.

  • Application
    • Application temperature: min. 8 °C max. 30 °C
    • By brush / By roller
    • Pot life 60 min
    • Application requirements

      Temperature of material, surroundings and substrate: min. +8 °C to max. +30 °C.

    • The times given are reduced at higher temperatures and increased at lower temperatures, in particular in combination with high humidity.

  • Working tools / cleaning
    • By brush / By roller
    • Brush, rubber squeegee, epoxy roller, mixing equipment

    • More detailed information can be found in the Remmers Tool Programme.

      Clean tools, equipment and any splashed material immediately with water while still fresh.

      Take suitable protective and waste disposal measures when cleaning.

  • Storage / shelf life
    • Store frost-free
    • Shelf-life 9 months
    • If stored unopened in its original container in a cool, dry place and protected against frost, the product will keep for at least 9 months.

  • Usage
    • See application examples

  • Application examples
    • Primer

      Apply the mixed resin generously to the surface. Distribute with a suitable tool, e.g. rubber blade, and work into the substrate with an epoxy roller so that pores in the surface of the substrate are completely filled.

      It may be necessary to apply several layers.

      Approx. 0.15 - 0.25 kg/m² of binder (depending on the substrate)

  • General information
    • Unless otherwise specified, all of the values and application rates given above have been determined under laboratory conditions (20 °C) using standard colours. Slight deviations from these values may arise if the product is worked with on site.

      Primers must always be applied so that all pores are filled; it may therefore be necessary to increase the application rate or to apply a second coat.

      Wetting problems are possible on non-absorbent or slightly hydrophobic substrates. In this case, the priming must be repeated a second time.

      The end of the pot life cannot be recognised by increased viscosity or temperature, thus the max. working time must be strictly observed.

      Abrasive mechanical loads leave traces of wear.

      Epoxy resins are generally not colourfast when exposed to UV light or weather.

      Further notes on working, system construction and maintenance of the listed products can be found in the latest Technical Data Sheets and the Remmers system recommendations.

      For the installation of systems that are subject to approval, the directions contained in the relevant approval must be observed.

  • Disposal instructions
    • Larger quantities of leftover product should be disposed of in the original containers in accordance with the applicable regulations. Completely empty, clean containers should be recycled. Do not dispose of together with household waste. Do not allow to enter the sewage system. Do not empty into drains.

  • Safety / regulations
    • For professional users only!
