ECOLOGIX CARPET CUSHION BACKING

Moisture Resistant Primer - MRP™

Moisture Resistant Primer - MRP™

Renovations can be complicated, and so can concrete subfloors. There may be old, black residue from an asphalt-based adhesive, sometimes called cutback, that was often used to install wood, VCT or VAT flooring. Unfortunately, you cannot simply apply new adhesive directly over cutback but that is where MRP (Moisture Resistant Primer) has you covered. MRP is a 2-part, water-based epoxy primer that creates a barrier over concrete, old cutback adhesive, asphalt-based products, VCT, wood flooring and other solid surfaces. MRP protects your floors from moisture up to 99% RH, 14 MVER and 14 pH, and reduces floor preparation time and costs.
