Primers (undercoats) – Nu prime
Nu-Prime is a high quality compound adhesive which bonds difficult to penetrate powdery and oxidized surfaces. Used as an undercoat on powdery surfaces, Nu-Prime provides an excellent surface for top coatings.
Surfaces undercoated with Nu-Prime and top coated with either Tileflex, Nuflex or Flexi-shield perform exceptionally after curing ( drying ) under all weather conditions to provide a waterproof coating on the tile.
Nu-Prime has undergone rigorous testing and special consideration has been given to ensure the chemical composition and compatibility are suitable for Australian conditions. Nu-Prime is a stable non-yellowing coating which retains both flexibility and strength, whilst also providing superb protection against bacteria and mould on most surfaces.
