    100 Non-Fibered Primer (quick-drying primer)

    Available in: 5 gallon pails & 55 gallon drums

    KARNAK 100 Non-Fibered Primer is a general purpose non-fibered emulsion primer prepared from an asphalt binder, carefully refined and emulsified in water by means of selected colloids.  The asphalt emulsion thus produced is of heavy paint consistency.  It is especially designed for use as a general utility prime coat for concrete, gypsum, masonry, brick, and metal surfaces over which waterproofing, dampproofing, roof coatings, membranes and other asphaltic products are to be applied.  KARNAK 100 Non-Fibered Primer is designed specifically to prepare surfaces for torch applied modified bitumen membrane, where solvent-based primers are not permitted or applicable.  KARNAK 100 Non-Fibered Primer will not burn or support combustion in a liquid state and will not flash.  This is a low odor coating that resists the absorption of exterior moisture.
