A seamless tiling project requires the best quality tiling primer. Cover the steps from start to finish to ensure an outstanding outcome for every tiling project. Davco's range of primers are designed to increase the bond strength of tile adhesives and waterproofing membranes in interior and exterior applications.

Tiling primer is an important component in tile installation as it improves the bonding of the tileto the substrate. It can also improve the working characteristics of the tile adhesive. Tiling primer is important to ensure a long lasting guaranteed tiling system. If you are looking to produce quality, long-lasting results, we strongly recommend using a tile adhesive primer prior to laying tiles.

A good tiling primer will regulate the adsorption rate of tiled surfaces. This results in better water retention and longer curing, ultimately strengthening and increasing open time for the tile adhesive. An increased open time means more adhesive can be spread and more tiles can be laid. The effective use of a tiling primer will allow for fast and efficient tiling!

Davco primers are formulated to penetrate the substrate and seal in difficult to remove dust helping the adhesive to work more effectively. They also increase adjustment time of tiles so if a tile is out of line, you have more time to adjust it. With the use of a tiling primer, you can ensure seamless tile installation with close attention to detail. The Davco tiling primer range consists of a variety of quality products including a multi-purpose tile primer, and primers specially formulated to enhance or strengthen bonding. We also produce a selection of tiling adhesives and underlays for the reduction of sound transmission through floor tiling systems.

Inadequate or incorrect surface preparation is the most common cause of failure when bonding tiles onto surfaces. Therefore, we recommend the use of Davco waterproofing primer on all substrates to be tiled, other than substrates covered with a waterproofing membrane. For best results, our waterproof tiling primer products should be used prior to adhesives and waterproofing membranes.
