Durable, Quick Drying, Waterproofing Liquid Primer

abe.®proof liquid membrane primer is a single pack, solvent borne, liquid primer applied to most building substrates.


abe.®proof liquid membrane primer can be used to prime most building substrates typically:

  • Porous surfaces, asphalt, deficient bituminous surfaces and wood – prime with abe.®proof liquid membrane primer
  • Sound concrete and non-porous screeds – no priming required
  • A surface conditioner to obtain optimum performance from the products applied as top coats
  • Excellent surface conditioner
  • Easy to apply, fast curing, quick turn-around
  • Moisture insensitive, can be applied in cool, warm and humid conditions
  • Excellent adhesion to most prepared substrates
Surface Preparation

All surfaces are to be clean, sound, dry, free of laitance, grease, all fungal growth and loose flaking particles. This could be achieved by wire brushing or suitable high pressure washing, using clean water to reveal a clean, sound, water break free surface.


A solvent wipe using MEK or oil free acetone to remove any natural wood oil prior to application.


Slow mixing or thorough stirring using a flat paddle just to re-homogenise the product before application.

Typical Properties

Protection on Completion

All surfaces require suitable protection from dirt and contamination between coats and until the final coating has fully cured.
