Product Description:

Limelite Easy Bond is a breathable primer and keying aid designed to be used with the Limelite range of plasters.

Effective bonding
Enables plastering onto smooth substrates where there is little key allowing effective adhesion of plaster coats.

Suction control and crack prevention
Helps to prevent shrinkage and cracking by controlling suction on dry, porous substrates such as sandstone or old brickwork.

Reduces efflorescence and staining
Contains a salt inhibitor to prevent surface efflorescence. Minimises the risk of sulphate attack and staining on plasters from contaminated substrates.

Limelite Easy Bond is breathable and won’t seal moisture into the substrate like an impermeable SBR or latex base primer. It also won’t re-emulsify when damp like PVA based primer.

Easy to use
Limelite Easy-Bond is easy to use, only requiring the addition of water and is applied with a brush.

Mixing Instructions
5kg of Limelite Easy Bond should be mixed with 2.5 litres of clean, cool water. Once mixed, Limelite Easy Bond will give a working time of 15 minutes. Only mix the amount of material that can be applied in time.

The performance characteristics of Limelite Easy Bond are dependent on temperature – higher or lower temperatures will result in reduced or extended setting times, respectively.

Application Instructions
Limelite Easy Bond should be brushed onto the substrate around 15 minutes before applying the first plaster coat. Limelite Easy Bond can also be applied by spray machine for covering larger areas faster.

Clean Up & Spillages
Tools and equipment can easily be cleaned using water. Cleaning of tools and equipment should be carried out as soon as possible after application.
