Mapei Eco Prim Grip- Multipurpose, Bond-Promoting Primer

Mapei ECO Prim Grip is a ready-to-use, low-VOC, synthetic resin-based primer with bond-promoting silica aggregates suspended in dispersion. It enhances the performance and adhesion of mortars to existing ceramics and difficult-tobond-to substrates. Plus, it improves bonding of self-leveling underlayments (SLUs) and bonds of render coats over cementitious substrates. Suitable for a wide variety of substrates, ECO Prim Grip combines excellent versatility with an easy, low-odor application.

Features & Benefits
  • Ready-to-use gray latex, which is easy to apply with a roller or brush
  • One-component, versatile primer for a wide variety of substrate conditions
  • Single-coat application for faster turnaround and lower installation costs
  • Low-odor and VOC compliance – great for use in interior, occupied environments
  • Provides a rough keying surface ideal for polymer-modified mortars, render coats and leveling compounds, ensuring excellent bonding on smooth or low-absorptive substrates
  • Easy handling and application properties
  • Ideal primer for use with MAPEI’s SLUs
  • Provides excellent bond strength with resistance to moisture and aging
  • No shotblasting or abrasion required, thus eliminating the resulting dust.

Where to Use
  • Interior and exterior applications
  • Use over properly prepared ceramic tile, porcelain tile, vinyl composition tile (VCT), natural stone or exterior-grade plywood substrate before applying polymer-modified mortars or SLUs.
  • Use over substrates that have a residue of well-bonded old cutback adhesive, floor-covering adhesive or polyurethane adhesive. Refer to the “Surface Preparation” section.
  • Also, use to improve the bond of SLUs on nonabsorbent surfaces such as ceramic tile, cement terrazzo and nature-stone floors.
  • Use before application of SLUs over properly prepared sound and stable concrete substrates, whether they are smooth and nonabsorbent, or profiled and absorbent

Suitable Substrates
  • Use before application of polymer-modified mortars or SLUs over properly prepared sound, stable and nonabsorbent substrates including ceramic tile, natural-stone floors, glass tile, cement terrazzo, cement-based agglomerates, glazed cement masonry units, VCT, rigid fiberglass, well-bonded old cutback adhesive, floor-covering adhesive residue, polyurethane adhesive residue, exterior-grade plywood on floors, smooth nonabsorbent concrete, absorbent concrete, steeltroweled concrete, concrete with up to 20% fly ash, dry shake hardener, radiant-heated floors, gypsum substrates, gypsum-based SLUs and plastic laminate countertops.
  • Use before application of polymer-modified mortars over properly prepared, sound, stable and nonabsorbent substrates including epoxy terrazzo, agglomerate marble and poured epoxy flooring, as well as over Planiseal VS and Planiseal VS Fast.
  • Use before the application of render coats over concrete, brickwork and concrete block substrates.
  • Use over epoxy flooring to install carpet – with Ultrabond ECO ® 185, Ultrabond ECO 285 or Ultrabond ECO 220.
  • Stone tile coated with a backing of epoxy resin, of epoxy resin with fiber reinforcement or of epoxy resin with an aggregate broadcast can be primed with ECO Prim Grip for interior residential to light commercial and exterior residential applications. After the bondpromoting primer is allowed to dry, MAPEI polymermodified mortars meeting specifications referred to in the “Installing Followup Materials” section of this Technical Data Sheet are approved for use to install this type of stone. ECO Prim Grip is not recommended for exterior facades, installations subjected to commercial traffic or severe freeze/thaw conditions; instead, epoxy setting systems are required for such applications.
