Product Data Sheet
F1524 ProFlex Primer/Base Coat
Two Gallon of Part A and Two Gallon can of Part B mixed together will cover 400 Sq Ft
This product is a unique, extremely flexible, two-component epoxy membrane. It is solvent-free and exhibits excellent tensile strength and elongation under ambient as well as colder temperatures.
- 100% solids for low odor during installation
- Self-priming and leveling on properly prepared surfaces.
- Strong adhesion to wide variety of substrates.
- Self-leveling when sufficient material is applied.
- Fills depressions, spalled areas and cracks.
- Absorbs movement to help prevent reflective cracking.
- Remains flexible over a wide range of temperatures.
- Adheres to asphalt substrates.
Surface should be clean, substantially free of loose and without standing water.
Important Note: It is important to know that you should not use water or water based products to clean your concrete. This will affect adhesion.

Applying over Smooth Non Porous Surfaces
Smooth Aluminum, New Galvanized Steel, Glass and Plastics such as ABS, Polypropylene, PVC, Polystyrene, and Acrylic must be primed with Proflex Primer® to improve adhesion. Hypalon and other Thermoplastic Olefin membranes must also be primed with Proflex Primer®
Spray On Urethane Foams
Since there can be considerable variations in density we recommend priming all roof foams with Proflex Primer® in order to produce a uniform surface and improve adhesion to the rubber.
Applying over Previously Painted Surfaces
Epoxy and Urethane patching products, caulks and coatings must be primed with Proflex Primer® to improve adhesion.
Applying over Porous Surfaces
When applying over porous substrates, use Proflex Primer® to stabilize the surface.
Applying over Masonry or Concrete
With masonry / concrete, the surface to be coated must be relatively smooth (steel troweled) and uniform (not honey-combed, full of imbedded stones or aggregate breaking the surface, etc.). The surface must be structurally stable, dry, non-porous, and free of oils, debris, and flaking or loose paint. New (green) concrete should be aged 10 days. Fill any cracks, or spalling or other surface defects on the concrete surface with Proflex Flexible Epoxy®, Butt Putty® Crack Filler Gel or ProFill® to level and smooth out the surface.
Using Proflex Primer® with EPDM Liquid Rubber®
An example of substrates that need to be coated with Proflex Primer® prior to application of EPDM Liquid Rubber® are:
- Rigid Foams
- Previously Painted Surfaces
- Spray on Urethane Foams
When applying over the above substrates, use Proflex Primer® to stabilize the surface. The “porosity” of concrete / masonry can be somewhat subjective and needs to be addressed prior to applying EPDM Liquid Rubber® on such surfaces. When in doubt and when time permits, prepare the surface as above and apply a 20 mils dft coat of EPDM Liquid Rubber® to a test section. Check when cured in about 4 to 10 days, for surface “bubbling” and adhesion. Bad adhesion and “bubbling” indicates that the structure is too porous. In such a case, or when testing times do not permit, it is recommended you apply a coat of Proflex Primer® on the concrete first, to “fill in the pores”, let partially cure, and then apply the EPDM Liquid Rubber® over the Proflex Primer® following the instructions.
