ECO Prim Grip is a ready-to-use bond-promoting primer that reportedly prepares an existing tile or stone surface to receive a new installation without the time, labor or dust of scarification. This synthetic resin-based primer can enhance the performance of mortars and their adhesion to existing ceramics and other difficult substrates, and can be applied with a roller in only one coat.

According to the company, a surface coated with the primer can be ready for new tile installation within 15-60 minutes. Low odor and VOC compliance make the product safe for use in occupied interior environments.

“In the current market environment, the most critical requirements for installations are that they be quick and have reduced environmental impact,” said Brian Pistulka, business manager for Tile and Stone Installation Systems. “ECO Prim Grip will provide a solution for repairs and renovations in residential and commercial markets at a lower overall cost. We believe this bond-promoting primer will quickly find favor with the installation community, and we look for ECO Prim Grip to deliver a solid base for MAPEI’s tile installation systems.”
