Q:What is the difference in a primer and a sealer, I'm trying to keep my sidewalks from turning orange due to well water
by|Apr 18, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Hi there, thank you for your question. Our Concrete & Masonry Bonding Primer is a primer designed to prepare your surface and encourage the adhesion of your topcoat. The primer must be topcoated. A sealer, like our Wet-Look and Low-Lustre Sealer, will provide a clear, protective, and waterproof finish. It does not require a topcoat. Please feel free to reach out to us directly if you have any other questions. -Lina

    Q:Do I need to prepare the exterior concrete for the primer? There are two existing conditions: 1. New clean concrete pored 6 months ago. 2. Existing stained concrete protected by a roof in good condition.

    Answer This Question

    A:  Hi there, thank you for your question. All concrete must be properly prepared before application to obtain long-lasting results. You want to ensure the surfaces are sound. Etch all bare concrete with muriatic acid (the surface is supposed to feel like 150-grit sandpaper to help with adhesion), clean/degrease, and let dry. Once dry, you can apply the Concrete & Masonry Bonding Primer No. 880. If you have other questions or concerns, please reach out to us directly, our Customer Care team is ready to help! - Alex

          Primer didn't hold the paint
          I was going to use another brand binding primer when the paint employee said I had to use this. I followed the directions. Then topped it with paint. When pulling up the painters tape the paint just pulled right up. I’m so upset as I worked very hard on this floor and I do not believe it will last a month. I believe I’ve wasted all the time, energy, and money trusting this product.

          Hi there, thank you for your review. Sorry to hear that the paint is peeling up after using the Concrete & Masonry Bonding Primer. When possible, it's best to remove the tape before the paint completely dries, and it should be removed at an angle. Another tip is to use a razor blade and score the line between the paint and tape to ensure a clean line. Customer satisfaction is important to us, and we appreciate your feedback. Please reach out to us directly if you need further assistance; our customer care team is happy to help you! -Ronald Behr

            Dont use with water based top coats.
            This is a latex based primer. Your associate recommended it for use with Rocksolid by Rustoleum. The effect was bubbles and a dried splotchy pattern. Causing me hundreds of dollars in wasted product and more importantly my time.

            Hi John, thanks for your review. I'm sorry to hear about the bubbles and splotchy appearance. Our Concrete Bonding Primer can be used with any water-based paint, so I'd recommend reaching out to the manufacturer of your topcoat for advice to eliminate the uneven finish of their coating. Customer satisfaction is very important to us, so feel free to reach out to our Customer Care team directly for further assistance. They are always happy to help. Enjoy the rest of your day. -Christina Behr

            Goes on like water. Milky colored when wet, clear when dry. Great bonding primer for goid topcoat adhesion. Used an etching solution first.

            Good product when used as directed.
            It would be helpful if Behr posted the reason for failures. I found it could be applied to foundation walls using cheap sponge brushes and dabbing it in place. I had problems with bubbles using a standard roller (had to brush flat) but the Behr Microlon covers applied it smoothly. A gallon covered 450 sqft of garage floor (properly cleaned, etched, and dried for 4 days) plus the step, plus about 60 feet of 8" high foundation wall. My storage carts caused some minor paint chipping, touched up.

                Did the job well.
                did a good job. I made sure to clean the floor first, then apply a primer for concrete just to be on the safe side, then apply the paint. I added also a gloss sealer with anti-skid in it. The floor was a mess to start with, so while the end results is not 100% perfection, it was a tremendous improvement in the garage.

                I applied this primer under #PFC-68 (BEHR concrete floor paint) per recommendation of the manufacturer, but after 3 weeks when I parked my car in the garage the epoxy paint peeled off Both paint and primer are very disappointing

                Hello, thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that the coating and primer peeled so soon. This is not typical, and I understand your disappointment. It sounds like the concrete will need more etching. I recommend removing the loose coating, cleaning and etching until the concrete feels like 150-grit sandpaper, spot etching and touching up.
