Superior Epoxy Primer - 171 - #SEP171

Low Viscosity, 100% Solids epoxy Primer

SUPERIOR EPOXY PRIMER 171 is a two component, low viscosity, 100% solids epoxy. SUPERIOR EPOXY PRIMER 171 will penetrate into concrete, sealing the surface to improve adhesion of epoxy toppings and coatings. SUPERIOR EPOXY PRIMER 171 will reduce outgassing of porous concrete to help produce pinhole free topcoats.




  • Primer for porous concrete surfaces.
  • Tack coat for easier application of aggregate filled, trowel applied epoxy toppings.
  • Primer for polyester and vinyl ester toppings.
  • 100% solids, conforms to VOC regulations.
  • Low viscosity.
  • Good penetration into concrete.
  • Easy 1:1 volume mix ratio.

Surface Preparation

Surface must be clean, sound, dry and free of all foreign materials such as oils, grease, loose paint, dust and laitance. This may be accomplished by sand blasting or scarifying followed by an air blast to remove dust and debris from the application area. New concrete surfaces should be etched with a 5% muriatic acid solution or other concrete etchants, rinsed thoroughly and allowed to dry.


Mixing & Application Mix 1 volume of part A with 1 volume of part B. Mix thoroughly, being sure to scrape the sides and bottom with a strong mixing stick or a slow-speed drill with a paint propeller attachment. Do not mix more than can be applied in 20 minutes. Apply mixed material by brush, roller or squeegee at 150 to 200 square feet per gallon (8-10 mils). The coverage will depend upon texture of surface. Apply toppings before primer becomes tack-free, approximately 2-3 hours at 72oF.



  • Do NOT apply when temperature is below 50oF.
  • Do NOT apply to latex modified mortar or concrete.

Clean Up

Clean tools and equipment immediately with a suitable solvent such as xylene or lacquer thinner.
