KARNAK 111 Quick-Drying Asphalt Primer is specially designed for use as a quick-drying general utility prime coat for concrete, gypsum, masonry, brick and metal surfaces over which waterproofing, dampproofing, roof coatings and other asphaltic products are to be applied. This primer readily penetrates pores and seals dusty masonry surfaces to provide a firm base for coatings. It is specified as a quick drying (approximately 4 hours) prime coat prior to the application of a membrane waterproofing system on all concrete structures. KARNAK 111 Quick-Drying Asphalt Primer is also very effectively used as a quick-drying felt primer on old dried out built-up roofs where penetration is required to revitalize the base surfaces before roof coatings or cold applied systems are applied.

Preparation & Application

All surfaces should be clean, dry and free from oil, grease, dust, dirt, loose paint or other foreign matter.

Easily applied by brush or spray equipment at the rate of 0.5 gallon per 100 sq. ft. depending upon porosity and type of surface being primed. Masonry and dried out built-up roof structures should be fully coated to ensure proper penetration so that an effective bond can be achieved for the covering material.

Caution/Care of Tools

Brushes and other tools may be thoroughly cleaned after use with mineral spirits, taking the necessary precautions when handling combustible materials.
