Ames' Super Primer
Seals & Bonds to Most Any Surface
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.

Topcoat with:
Above-Grade Walls Ames' Paint & Prime, or Block & Wall acrylic formula
Below-Grade Walls Ames' Vapor-Barrier or Block & Wall rubber formula
EPDM Roofs Ames' Super Elasto-Barrier, Maximum-Stretch or both
Stucco Ames' Paint & Prime
Concrete Floors Ames' Safe-T-Deck non-skid, Safe-T-Deck plastic paint or Liquid Granite

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

Good morning Peter and thank you for your speedy reply. I had planned on writing to you this morning to tell you how much I love the primer we are using. We got the seams coated yesterday and the product is a delight to work with. This morning we will be rolling out one section of the roof and tomorrow we start with the Snow Seal coats.
I will keep you appraised on our progress.

Take care,
Bob Christianson
