Questions & Answers

Should this be applied to OSB before installing peel and stick rolled roofing?

Asked by: ChuckB
Thanks ChuckB, for your interest in Super Primer. It would serve a dual purpose in your application. First it would enhance the adhesion of the PSA roofing and second it would penetrate and strengthen the OSB panel. When Super Primer turns clear after application (30-40 min) it will be ready for the roofing. One word of caution, be very deliberate when placing the roofing after the primer application. Once in position it will nearly impossible to move.

Customer Reviews

Super Primer 5 Gallon Acrylic Clear Adhesive Primer is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Ames Super Primer acrylic clear adhesive primer is excellent! Product arrived fast and was well packaged. I needed a good primer that will stick to an outdoor concrete planter. Easy to apply with a regular paint brush, it is very thin like water. It appeared to cover well, and it starts to dry quickly. The primer seals and penetrates for good adhesion of the concrete. After the primer was completely dry, I painted the concrete planters, and I only needed one coat of paint and a few touchups. Now the paint color looks great thanks to the primer. According to the product information, the Super Primer may be used as a concrete additive to reduce cracking and increase strength. Also, it can be added to latex coatings to improve adhesion, strength, and waterproofing. For a quality paint job, the extra step of adding a good quality primer is a must. In the end, you will be more satisfied with the project, saves a lot or work and looks great. I highly recommend this product.

I used this clear acrylic primer to seal a concrete wall in my basement that was getting some very minor water leakage. The primer is very thick but was easy to apply with a brush or a roller. I have been waiting for the spring rains to really test the product. It has rained a couple of times now and so far no water seepage has shown up on the concrete wall. Product was easy to use and effective.

I am in the middle of remodeling the entire inside of my manufactured home. So I really don't have the time nor the money to do much to the outside at the moment. But life and weather happens. My front porch steps started getting mildew from the humid rainy weather we have had here in the south, which led to slippery steps. They are wood by the way. I quickly grabbed this product and a a can of Safe T Deck and went to problem solving. I applied this product first and let it dry the first half of the day and then applied the other product. waalaaa! problem solved. At least for now. I am not sure if these products were ever meant to be used together, but at least I will not slip on the stairs and bust my behind before i can get outside to rebuild them. The application was simple. I applied with a cheap brush. I only applied 1 coat.

Penetrates and strengthens concrete, stops efflorescence of concrete, glues surfaces together. Can be either rolled on, brushed on or even sprayed on. Great to use on concrete, metal, EDPM and stucco. What is great about this adhesive is it can be added to the water when mixing concrete to reduce cracking and it will add crush strength to an estimated from 2800 psi to 8800 psi. Works great when using latex based paints to increase adhesion. Estimated coverage per gallon is from 100 square feet for concrete surfaces to 200 square feet foe smooth surfaces. This adhesive is water based and will cleaned easily with soap and water. Made in the good old USA.

I know this sounds crazy but the tin was not going nowhere in the box and the tin was also covered in plastic in case it did spill. The product. I have only used it to fill cracks on the outside walls which have stucco. They were hairline cracks and I painted them on. It went on very easy but I did do it twice just to make sure I covered the cracks. It did leave the crack slightly tacky but I just wanted to fill the holes. Clean up was easy, I just threw the brush away. Haha! I am not painting for a good while and so I just wonder how long it will stay tacky? Product is good ,easy to apply, a little expensive but I think it will last.

Ames' Sealer works uniquely as an elastomeric plastic sealant and adhesive for wood and concrete and many hard-to stick surfaces. I will be using on a cracked area on my concrete garage floor. Much more powerful than a water repellent, super primer helps seal against water damage and seepage while penetrating deeply into the surface to strengthen and bind together the molecules of the surface it is applied to. Product covers approximately 200 sq. ft. per gallon, depending on surface characteristics. 2 to 8 hours drying time between coats. Drying time dependent on weather and humidity. Slight tack until cured.

With its clear color it can be used to seal a wood, concrete, brick, or stucco surface prior to painting. I’ve used it without painting just to seal a section of stucco on my house where the rain from a gutter was splashing on it. As a primer, it not only seals, but works very effectively to help paint bond to a hard to stick surface, like damaged wooden surfaces. The Ames Super Primer with its acrylic polymer penetrates into the wood, cement, stucco, etc. to seal and strengthen the surface, preserving it from further damage. It is a perfect primer for metal railings. With its elastic qualities it will expand and contract with temperature changes without cracking. You can even use this as an additive when mixing cement or masonry mixes. Simply replace 25% of the water with the Ames Super Primer and it will not only make the cement more resistant to water penetration, but it will increase the PSI of the cement dramatically making a much stronger cement. It was securely shipped in a thick corrugated cardboard box. The gallon is inside a strong plastic bag, and the top is securely sealed with 4 metal clips to prevent the top from coming off (See Photos). It arrived in perfect condition! It can be applied with a brush, roller, or sprayer. Can be used indoors or outdoors. It cleans up with soap & water. It cures in 2 hours and can be recoated in 2 hours. 1 gallon covers approximately 100 to 200 sq. ft. depending on the surface texture. Proudly made in the USA.

Got this Ames Super Primer to resurface and restore a concrete utility room floor. After prepping the floor as recommended, application was fast and easy using a 3/8 inch low nap roller. I experienced a coverage rate of approximately 125 square feet per gallon, within the advertised 100-200 square foot rate. After applying 2 coats of primer, I top-coated with Ames Liquid Granite. Final surface looks great and should be extremely durable.
