Versatile’s New Polyurea Primer

Installing flakes over 5055 Polyurea Primer by Versatile
Versatile launched its new 5055 Polyurea Primer, a fast-drying, two-component primer designed to have great adhesion to concrete and provide a good basecoat to broadcast decorative flakes.

Known for their expertise in epoxy “wicking” technology, Versatile developed this polyurea primer with the goal of having better adhesion to concrete than many competitive polyurea and polyaspartic products. This eliminates the need for a separate primer, allowing the installer to broadcast flake directly into the first coat quickly, saving installation time and reducing callbacks that may occur with other polyurea or polyaspartic primers delaminating from the concrete.

“We formulated this new polyurea primer using almost two decades of knowledge in the development of epoxy products with our ‘wicking’ technology,” said Richard Van Bergh, Versatile President. “The 5055 Polyurea Primer offers our customers another option for a primer that is fast-drying, flexible, and has great adhesion to the concrete.”

Installing 5055 Polyurea Primer on Concrete

An environmentally friendly product, our polyurea primer is a 95% solids, low volatile organic compound (VOC) solution that is compliant in all 50 states with low odor, providing cleaner air quality by eliminating strong chemical smells from your installations. Additionally, the ultra-fast curing features of the 5055 Polyurea Primer allow most installers to scrape the flakes in two hours or less. Now you can offer your customers a complete same-day polyurea/polyaspartic flooring system when combined with our 5085 Ultra-High Solids Polyaspartic Floor Coating without sacrificing adhesion to the concrete.

Pricing and Availability

The 5055 Polyurea Primer is available immediately and priced at $74.84/gal in 3 gal kits and $71.21/gal in 15 gal kits. Shipping is included when minimum orders are met.
