F Ball & Co Stopgap P141
F BALL & CO has unveiled the latest addition to its range of primers, which is specially formulated to enhance the bond formed between the company’s floor levelling compounds and non-absorbent subfloors.
Stopgap P141 is designed to create a textured finish and provide enhanced bond performance between subfloor and levelling compound when applied over non-absorbent surfaces, such as epoxy waterproof surface membranes, ceramic tiles and power floated concrete.
It’s particularly recommended where Stopgap 600 deep base levelling compound is applied at a thickness greater than 20mm to non-absorbent surfaces.
The strong bond created when using Stopgap P141 is better able to withstand the increased stress that thicker depths of levelling compound exert when drying.
F Ball’s newest primer is also said to boast impressive coverage capabilities. Applied neat, using a paint roller, five litres will cover an area of up to 65sq m, and achieving an even coverage is aided by it being pigmented yellow, to create a visual guide for contractors.
A further reported advantage of Stopgap P141 is its rapid-drying nature. From as little as 15 minutes after application of the primer, subfloors are said to be ready to receive levelling compounds.
