Product Details

Get your walls and floors in tip-top condition ahead of tiling with Primer G, a water-based synthetic resin from Mapei, the world’s number one manufacturer of grouts and adhesives.

Key Features

  • Easy to apply with brush or roller

  • Low VOC

  • Water based

  • Drying time 2 hours

  • For use on absorbent substrates such as screed, plasterboard

  • Covers up to 10m2 when applied neat and up to 30m2 when diluted

Mapei Primer G is a water-based dispersion of special synthetic resins which, once applied to any surface, dry to form a flexible, compact, shiny coating to consolidate the surface. Primer G also improves the adhesion of smoothing compounds, paint, wallpaper adhesive, tile adhesives and mortar for renders. Primer G applied to the surface of gypsum or cement prevents any chemical reaction between sulphates and the cement alluminates of the tile adhesive which, in the presence of moisture, leads to the formation of the salt '’ettringite’ the accumulation of which causes tiles to break away from gypsum substrates.

Stunning tile
I saw this tile recently at a local tile shop at 3 times the price. I couldn't believe my eyes. Absolute class tile which makes my small bathroom look so much bigger. Love these tiles and such a fantastic company to deal with from start to finish.

Q : Hi can I use this product to seal wbp ply on my bathroom floor prior to tiling it?

Answers (1)
Advice

Primer G 5kg (SKU 020105) can be used to prime plywood, however, this is not necessary as plywood would not generally absorb moisture as readily as concrete would.

Q : Hi I am about to tile a bath area which has painted plaster board if I prime using this primer will the tiles be ok?

Answers (1)
Advice

We would recommend removing as much paint as possible before using our Primer G, as you would be tiling onto the paint, not the plasterboard.

Q : Do I need to prime bare plasterboards before tileing

Answers (1)
Advice

When tiling onto plasterboard, a primer not required unless this has been skimmed with plaster. If you are using plasterboard in a bathroom area or wet areas, we would recommend using a waterproofing kit (SKU: 1248KITUK) before installing tiles.

Q : hi i am looking to lay porcelain tiles to a kitchen floor which is concrete, should i seal with this first pior to laying tiles?which type of adhesive would you advise?

Answers (1)
Advice

Your concrete surface will require sealing if it is relatively new if it is over 5 years old it will not be needed. The adhesive required will depend on the tile you have chosen Keraquick Flexible is always a preferred choice, However, once you have added the tiles to the basket and proceed to the next page on the website it will advise the adhesive and grout you will require for your project.
