Proper substrate preparation is a base for a success of the entire construction project. The use of ATLAS UNI GRUNT ULTRA, a primer consisting very high content of polymeric dispersion, guarantees safety and assurance that the further works will be carried out on substrate:,
- with optimally decreased and unified water absorption,
- unified absorptivity on entire surface,
- ensuring highest possibly adhesion to the following layers.
For priming substrates prior to the application of floors, installation of ceramic cladding, plastering, floating, wallpapering and painting.Depending on type of construction work and place of application, primer should be diluted in compliance with the instruction.
ATLAS UNI-GRUNT ULTRA, category A/h/FW maximum content of VOC in the product below 1.9 g/l, maximum allowable content of VOC 30 g/l.
approx. 1,0 g/cm³
Substrate and ambient temperature during work
from +5 ºC up to +30 ºC
Further work after priming (depending on substrate type)
- after 15 minutes – plasters, silicate hollow blocks, aerated concrete blocks
- after 2 hours – self-levelling floors
The substrate should be dry, free from dust, dirt, oils, grease and wax. Remove any loose, poorly bonded layers prior to the emulsion application. In case of gypsum plasters, the sediment formed during sanding should be removed.
ATLAS UNI-GRUNT ULTRA is manufactured as an ultra-efficient emulsion, ready for use after dilution in water in the following ratio:
- 1:3 underneath the floor,
- 1:6 underneath the plasters and top coats,
- 1:8 underneath the paints.
The emulsion should be applied upon the substrate with a roller, brush, or spraying machine with thin and uniform coat. For the very absorptive and weak substrates, priming should be carried out twice, with wet on wet technology. In case of priming of surfaces underneath the floor. such emulsion should be poured on substrate and distributed evenly without forming puddles. If the substrate is still absorptive after product drying, priming should be repeated.
Painting, wallpapering, tiling, etc., can commence when emulsion dries. The primer should form matt surface after drying. Time of drying depends on temperature and humidity conditions:
- 15 minutes – plasters, silicate hollow blocks, aerated concrete blocks
- 2 hours – floors and screeds
Average consumption of ATLAS UNI-GRUNT ULTRA:
- 0,1 kg/m² underneath self-levelling screeds,
- 0,043 kg/m² underneath top coats, adhesives for ceramic cladding,
- 0,033 kg/m² underneath paints.
In practice consumption depends on substrate absorptivity level.
Plastic containers: 1 kg, 5 kg
Before priming, carefully secure all elements nearby, e.g. glass, woodwork, flashings, etc. Tools should be cleaned with clean water directly after use.
Possible emulsion stains can be removed with ATLAS AGENT FOR REMOVAL OF STAINS OF PAINTS, PRIMERS AND RENDERS.
