the primer is required for proper adhesion in the following situations


The below roof types- substrates will require one coat of the ProFlex primer prior to application of Liquid EPDM Rubber

  • Built up asphalt roofs-You would first need to apply our ProFlex primer before applying the liquid EPDM.

  • Stainless steel-Only if sanded
  • Neither the primer or Liquid EPDM can be applied to glass
