Floor primers ensure quick bonding of floor overlays and floor coatings. They provide a surface for floor paint to grip onto, thus preventing chipping in the future. Floor primers also prevent moisture from getting trapped in the flooring layers. Trapped moisture causes mold and poses a risk to the personnel in the space.

Before considering any paint or coating to lay on your floor, you first have to consider preparation. The floor overlays need to bond to the substrates and prevent paint from seeping into these layers. The primer performs this role well by making the paint and coatings durable, ensuring they don’t chip away with time. 

Types of floor primers

Different types of primers exist, each designed for specific surfaces with different properties. These types are 

  • Epoxy primer.
  • Polyurethane primer.
  • Acrylic primer.
  • Vinyl acetate primer.

Epoxy primer

This primer is often used as a sealant over a base primer. The color of epoxy primers is customizable, allowing it to blend in better with your preferred coating color. Our epoxy primers, such as the Perdure E32, are also suited for old and new concrete floors. 

Polyurethane primer

This primer works particularly well on metallic surfaces to protect them from corrosion. We carry the polyurethane primer Perdure UPr which uses humidity from the atmosphere to cure.

Acrylic primer

This type is a copolymer-based primer that is excellent for untreated timber and concrete floors. Our CP1000 acrylic primer fills up the floor substrate, allowing coatings to adhere better. 

Vinyl acetate primer

This type is a water-based primer that works best for porous surfaces. Our Paramol acetate primer seals these pores to ensure paint and coatings do not seep into the floor. It dries fast, within a few hours.

We have each type of primer available in our Duraamen shop at competitive prices that balance affordability and quality. 

Preparation is the step that determines the quality of your floor coatings. It would be best if you didn’t skip out on using quality primers to ensure you get the desired results. Quality primers such as those sold by us prolong your floor’s lifespan, giving you peace of mind in your space.

Frequently asked questions

It is not necessary to sand the floor after applying primer. The purpose of sanding is to provide a better surface for paint coats to stick to. Primers provide excellent adhesion to paint and floor coatings. Therefore, there is no need for sanding.

You need one primer layer if applying the first overlay or paint coating. You will need two layers if you’re painting over a previous coat. Primers dry fast; therefore, applying and curing these coats is a swift process.
