MicroGrip is an excellent one (1) coat non-acrylic primer paint for interior and exterior surfaces. MicroGrip provides an anchor and consolidation coat for mineral paints, lime paints, silossanic paints, and slaked lime plasters when they are being applied to portland cement surfaces and drywall.
MicroGrip can be used as a primer for virgin and painted drywall, masonry repairs, wood primer, and as a decorative finish paint for wall and ceilings. MicroGrip is a very fine granulated potassium silicate paint that increases adhesion and durability. It is an excellent primer base for high traffic areas where continual washing is a requirement.
MicroGrip Primer is required when you are applying Masonry Flat or Masonry Texture over a sealed/painted mineral surface like brick, stone or concrete.
Coverage - Approximately 1,300 ft2 / 121 mt2 – 1,800 ft2 / 167 mt2 per 15-liter bucket diluted to instructions for a one (1) coat application. Applications on virgin surfaces will absorb more paint. On smooth and consolidated surfaces predict higher coverage.
15-liter - 1,300-1,800 ft2
2.5-liter - 216-300 ft2
1-liter - 86-120 ft2
Dilution - MicroGrip primer must be diluted with 30% water, or 4.5 liters of water per one (1) 15-liter bucket. On porous surfaces apply product abundantly so as to penetrate sufficiently to consolidate and bond correctly. On slightly porous surfaces apply the product evenly as needed to cover the surface completely, being careful not to leave voids or unpainted surfaces. Diluted material must be stirred constantly to permit suspension of granules and not permit settling at bottom of paint buckets during application.
Drying Time - Ideal drying time is at least 8 – 12 hours. With lower temperatures and humidity more time may be needed.
Clean Up - Sprayer, brush, roller, rags, or sponges should be cleaned immediately after use with water and a mild detergent or dish soap.
Application – MicroGrip can be Brushed, Rolled or Sprayed. Airless sprayers are considered more ideal for this type of paint product. Care must be taken during spraying time that diluted paint material is stirred often so that paint solution and granules are consumed correctly during spraying. MicroGrip is a fine aggregate primer and can be applied using an appropriate airless sprayer, using no filters, applying product with a # 0.023 – 0.025 inches (0.58 – 0.64mm) size Titanium spray tip (523-523). 3,000 PSI minimum.
