STOPGAP FILL AND PRIME is a two-component, fast drying flexible cement based primer suitable for use over raised access panels and substrates with well bonded, waterproof residues of adhesives prior to the direct application of STOPGAP1200 PRO.

STOPGAP FILL AND PRIME has been designed to have a thixotropic consistency which enables joints up to 4mm wide to be filled in raised access panels. Applied up toa thickness of 1mm, STOPGAP FILL AND PRIME sets rapidly and is ready to receive foot traffic in as little as 60 minutes. Once cured, the flexible nature of the product will accommodate movement within the substrate.

STOPGAP FILL AND PRIME can be applied to flooring grade wooden substrates such as plywood, orientated strand board (OSB 3), particle board (chipboard) conforming to BSEN 312 Annex A P4-P7 and medium density fibreboard, prior to the application of STOPGAP 700 SUPERFLEX. STOPGAP FILL AND PRIME may also be used to smooth out uneven tongue and groove floorboards prior to over boarding with plywood.

Concrete and sand/cement screeds must be fully cured and any laitance or surface treatments must be removed. The temperature of the floor must be maintained above5°C throughout the application and drying of the product.
