Having thoughtfully finishing the walls, ceiling or floor, I want to perform work as practical as possible, even if the work surface looks old and porous. Wizards are easily coping with this, as the secret of success is focused in using a special surface treatment agent. Tell together in the appointment of acrylic primer deep penetration and technology of application.
Acrylic primer deep penetration is a special material for surface treatment before performing finishing works, in the finished form of a consistency resembling milk.
Color can be different: more often it is transparent, sometimes white, pinkish, light gray. This primer is one of the varieties of acrylic soil. It is not a versatile means, so the purchase of material should be based strictly on the prescription of the drug.
Today without such a soil does not do any type of finishing work. The material is a bit sticky, if you do not immediately wash off from the hands, it is removed with difficulty.
Sold mainly in banks and canisters. The volume depends on the manufacturer standards. More often such compositions are issued by the volume of 10 liters.
If you get into the eyes, you need to urgently rinse them with ordinary water. Do not corrodies, depending on the basis, it may be eco-friendly odorless or with a small specific aroma that does not prevent the workflow.
This material is sold in the form of a dry mix and finished solution. In the first case, this is a powder that needs to be breeding water according to the instructions.
Water use cool: the operational characteristics of the construction product will suffer from hot. It is convenient, as such material is usually enough for floating floor, walls and a spacious room ceiling.
Remains can be stored for 12 months, tightly closing the lid and removing the raw material in a dark place. Store it in the frost is unacceptable. The shelf life of acrylic primer deep penetration is 2 years from the date of release. Masters are not recommended to use it after the shelf life is over.
Advantages and disadvantages
Acrylic deep penetration soil has a lot of advantages. Such a means strengthens the base, making its structure sufficiently strong. You can use this composition for outdoor and internal works. It is suitable for the most unreliable grounds that externally do not instill confidence in the success of facing. This primer has a high viscosity. Its convenience is water soluble.
The use of acrylic soil allows you to save on the amount of adhesive composition or paint: the treated surface no longer absorbs the liquid in the large volume, so it does not dry quickly and allows you to conduct finishing works carefully, without a rush.
After processing this primer of dark surfaces, paint falls uniformly without non-rectified sections, strips and other defects. At the same time, the gloss of the surface is more pronounced. Regarding the remaining components of the finish, it can be noted: applying tile and wall-mounted glue after applying the soil becomes more uniform, which simplifies the finish.
Latex primer inherent vapor permeability. Despite the fact that it penetrates deep into the base and strengthens even porous surfaces, microorganisms and mold will not appear on it. At the same time, the primer after applying does not slow down the facing work: it will dry quickly even at normal room temperature. Drying time can be different, as it depends on the type of solvent used (fast, slow, classical).
The disadvantage of acrylic primer is some inconvenience of concentrate breeding, which is not all like. Basically, this is reducing newcomers who are afraid to recreate the desired consistency, which leads to an increase in the soil consumption.
Despite the fact that the primer can process different types of surface, not each composition is suitable for dark metals. Therefore, the use of this means for cladding is permissible only if the desired type of surface is listed, marked on the package.
For what is needed?
Acrylic (or latex) primer suitable for different surfaces. The material is based on the attachment of the high clutch plane processed with subsequent material. It is necessary so that the finish keeps on the surface as long as possible.
This primer does not just handle the top layer of the base under the finish: It penetrates the depth of 5 to 10 cm deep into the plane to which is applied.
The action is based on penetrating ability, which allows to strengthen the walls made by the developer with a violation of technology. This is more often concrete walls or plaster, in which the sand is noticeably more than the norm. Such surfaces are tremended, which makes it difficult to finish and may affect the final result. Acrylic soil action allows you to penetrate deep into cracks and problem areas of surfaces.
The material connects not only microcracks: it connects dust and causes all surface zones with a risk of poor strength to hold the facing material. It is not important at all, wallpapers are, ceramic, ceiling tiles or bulk sex. An interesting feature is the formation on the surface in the process of frosting the rough grid, which levels the base, performing its preparation for subsequent processing.
Acrylic primer is suitable for processing cement-concrete screeds, it is possible to process wooden, plaster types of surfaces, limestone. It glues the smallest foundation particles, will contribute to the prevention of the formation of blue and rotting.
This primer is protected from dampness. You can use it when preparing the surface under parquet, enamel, marble crumb, structural plaster. It will take a monolithic level basis everywhere.
Application of soil to the surface is easier than it seems at first glance.
When working, you will need:
- foam roller;
- Flat brush;
- Little flat brush;
- Flat container under the primer.
In the case of a dry concentrate to this set, it is worth adding a container to dilute material, which is bred strictly in the proportions specified by the manufacturer (usually 1: 4).
Stirring is carried out until the composition does not become homogeneous. At the same time it may be necessary to make a mask so that the dry makeup is not in the lungs.
After the preparation of the necessary inventory and the primer itself, proceed to the processing of surfaces. The soil is poured into a flat container, approximately 1/3 closing the volume located in it. No longer pouring: the solution will flush from a roller in large numbers, which is uncomfortable when processing the surfaces of walls or ceilings. The roller is convenient because with it, the time spent on the surface treatment is reduced by two times.
To pour the walls is not necessary: In primer and so high penetrating ability. However, it should not be saved too: the main thing is that when rolling the surface there was no spray. Movements should not be sharp: this is especially true if the repair in the room is partial. If the soil falls, say, on the wallpaper, they can stay spots.
The solution is typed on the roller and rolling the surfaces to them for further cladding. Since in any work can not do without treating the angles of joints and uncomfortable places, the working tool is changed to the brush of the desired size. Roller does not cope with accurate corners: usually do not avoid floss on the walls.
The brush will avoid unnecessary flow, makes the processing more accurate.
When all the planes are processed, you need to immediately remove the residues of the primer from the tools and the containers. If you leave it for later, the porolon and bristles brushes will become oak. After they are frozen the brush and the fur coat from the foam rubber will have to throw out. In the process of work, the material is worth pouring into the container. Little way: Pour the remains back to the common canister will not work (they will be the smallest particles of dust or cement screed microfragments).
Ground surface twice. In this case, the reuse of the soil is possible only after the first layer is dry.
What to consider?
So that finishing work is not complicated due to the choice of improper primer or its improper application, it is worth considering several recommendations.
Specialists recommend when buying pay attention to the shelf life. If it remains less than a month before the end, and the product can surely stay, or take it back with a surcharge, or choose the material of another brand.
It is preferable to use the soil of a proven company with a good reputation: cheap varieties do not differ good viscosity, they will not be able to create a strong crystalline grid and align the base at the proper level.
So that the clutch was maximum, before applying the primer itself, the surface must be delivered from dust, pollution and especially fat spots that impede high-quality finish. Distributing through a roller on the surface of the facing canvas, dust, the sands will prevent further blowing of the wallpaper, being the cause of small bubbles under the wallpaper.
Can be made after complete drying of the second layer of soil. This is determined by the fact that when touching the surface it will not stick. Ground walls before processing. If the repair is not planned for another month, no washed away to put the primer in advance.
It is impossible to process the floor by primer if it is not prepared and there are significant cracks: it will lead to the flow rate. He will not fix big problems, for this you need to use the cement composition.
