      Made to smooth out rough surfaces, the heavy viscosity of this quality gunite epoxy pool primer effectively smooths out uneven surfaces on gunite, fiberglass, rough plaster, rough concrete and sandblasted surfaces. This two-part epoxy primer acts as a full coat of paint and covers approximately 100 to 150 square feet per gallon.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gunite Primer I used this material to seal a fiberglass pool. It worked great. Went on easy and filled some bad spots. I ordered six gallons and only used four. Returned two to SPP.

      Technical Specifications:

      • Two-part epoxy primer
      • For fiberglass, rough plaster, rough concrete, new gunite or sandblasted surfaces.
      • Coverage: Approximately 100 to 150 square feet per gallon.
      • For surface preparation:
             – Wash the pool with Tri-Sodium Phosphate. DO NOT use a soap-type detergent. It can leave a flim on the surface which will result in poor paint adhesion.
             – Acid etching is required on bare masonry surfaces like concrete or plaster. It is also effective for removing chalky residue and hard mineral deposits on a previously painted pool.
             –We highly recommend repeating STEP 1: Wash the surface again with the tri-sodium phosphate solution to neutralize any remaining acid on the surface.

         

       

       

      What kind of surfaces should you use the Gunite Primer on?
      – The Gunite Primer should be used on Fiberglass, Rough Plaster, New Gunite or Sandblasted surfaces.

      Should I use a primer with the Super Poxy Paint?
      – The manufacturer does recommend priming the pool for proper adhesion.

      Can this be applied to a wet surface?
      – Unlike Epoxy Primer, Gunite Primer can only be applied to a completely dry surface.

      How much paint do I need?
      – Each gallon will cover approx. 100-150 sq ft. See chart below.

      How to Calculate the Square Footage of a Pool:
      1. Identify the shape of the pool - SEE BELOW
      2. Use the formula given to calculate the pool square footage.
      3. Divide the pools square footage by the sq. ft. per gallon of the desired paint to determine how many gallons of paint are needed.

       Pool Shape  Formula  Rectangular  Length x Width x 1.5 = Total Square Feet  Oval  Length x Width x 1.65 = Total Square Feet  Roman  Length x Width x 1.55 = Total Square Feet  Lazy L  Length x Width x 1.65 = Total Square Feet  Free Form  Length x Width x 1.6 = Total Square Feet


      Troubleshooting:

      Primer is peeling off the walls.
      – Primer is designed to work on a bare surface only. If the pool has already been painted a primer is not necessary and should not be used. If you have put primer over any other paint this is why this has occurred.

      If you have painted a bare surface and the primer is peeling off:
      – You would need to discuss this issue with Kelley Technical at 800-458-2561 as this is most likely user error.
