ARDEX R 3 E is a two-component epoxy primer for the use of ARDEX polyurethane screeds and self-smoothing epoxy floor coatings. It is solvent-free and can also be used on damp substrates. Broad casting with ARDEX Fine Aggregate and used as a primer prior to applying thick applications of the ARDEX SD-T Industrial Floor System, or other appropriate ARDEX cement-based products. Where surfaces are very porous, more than one coat of primer may be required to achieve the desired bonding efficiency. For applications on new concrete or where the relative humidity (RH) of the substrate is in excess of 75%, ARDEX DPM should be used. If the substrate is particularly smooth, the surface of the ARDEX R 3 E should be seeded with ARDEX Fine Aggregate immediately after application to give a mechanical key to facilitate the installation of resin screeds and toppings.
Easy to apply
Compatible with all ARDEX PU Screeds, epoxy floor coatings and self-leveling underlayments
