Basic Uses & Description:
Home-Sil RP 1.1 Epoxy Primer is a black, single-component epoxy primer. It incorporates state of the art, water based technology to produce an extremely versatile product that penetrates and seals porous substrates. It serves to increase the bond of silicone topcoats to a variety of surfaces. It will also help to “solidify” punky or chalky surfaces. Home-Sil RP 1.1 Epoxy Primer is safe and easy to apply, has a very little odor, and is easy to clean. Home-Sil RP 1.1 Epoxy Primer is designed to penetrate and seal porous substrates to improve the adhesion of Home-Sil RC 32.00 Series Roof Coating. It performs especially well on concrete, wood, fiberglass, steel, galvanized and aluminum surfaces. Although Home-Sil RP 1.1 Epoxy Primer will greatly enhance the adhesion of various topcoats over metal surfaces, it is not designed to add to the corrosion resistance of the system, beyond what the topcoat provides.
1. Adhesion: Penetrates and soaks into porous surfaces, imparting a tenacious chemical and physical bond between the roof substrate and topcoat. It is also effective over damp concrete or wood surfaces.
2. Non-Dusting: Penetrates deeply to eliminate concrete dusting, providing for easy cleanup and minimum maintenance.
3. Deep Penetration: Its low viscosity allows Home-Sil RP 1.1 Epoxy Primer to penetrate into and preserve dense surfaces such as smooth troweled concrete floors, oriented strandboard, fiberglass and various types of metal surfaces.
4. Anti-Spalling: Applied to concrete decks, walkways, industrial areas, etc., Home-Sil RP 1.1 Epoxy Primer will effectively protect against the intrusion of destructive salts, oils, solvents and gasoline. It also prevents spalling and pitting caused by freeze/thaw cycling.
Limitations & Precautions
Home-Sil RP 1.1 Epoxy Primer is a thin, penetrating sealer. It is not designed for use as a surface coating. Do not use over metal under immersion conditions. Home-Sil RP 1.1 Epoxy Primer will freeze and become unusable below 32°F (0°C). Do not ship or store unless protection from freezing is available. Do not apply if conditions will not permit complete cure before rain, dew or freezing temperatures occur. Do not apply in the late afternoon if moisture condensation can appear during the night. Do not apply Home-Sil RP 1.1 Epoxy Primer at temperatures below 50°F (10°C). Home-Sil RP 1.1 Epoxy Primer may be an irritant to skin. Avoid breathing of vapor or spray mist. Approved MSHA/NIOSH chemical cartridge respirator must be worn by applicator. Avoid contact with eyes and skin.
