Environmental Consideration

Custom® Building Products is committed to environmental responsibility in both products produced and in manufacturing practices. Use of this product can contribute towards LEED® v3 certification:

  • Up to 2 points towards MR Credit 5, Regional Materials
  • Up to 1 points towards IEQ Credit 4.2, Paints & Coatings

Suitable Substrates

  • Absorbent concrete
  • Non-absorbent concrete
  • Lightweight concrete
  • Cement terrazzo
  • Exterior grade plywood
  • OSB
  • Cutback adhesive residue
  • Resilient flooring

General Surface Prep

USE CHEMICAL-RESISTANT GLOVES, such as nitrile, when handling product.

Surfaces must be structurally sound, clean, dry and free from grease, oil, dirt, curing compounds, sealers, adhesives or any other contaminant that would prevent a good bond. Refer to the appropriate Custom® self-leveling underlayment technical data sheet for details on bonding to specific substrates.

Health Precautions

Contains acrylic emulsion. Wear rubber gloves and eye protection. Avoid eye contact or prolonged contact with skin. Wash thoroughly after handling. If eye contact occurs, flush with water for 15 minutes and consult a physician. If skin contact occurs, wash immediately with soap and water. Dried material is extremely difficult to remove. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN. DO NOT TAKE INTERNALLY.

Limitations to the Product

  • Do not bond directly to hardwood, Luan plywood, particle board, parquet, cushion or sponge-back vinyl flooring, metal, fiberglass or plastic.
  • Do not use as a wear surface.
  • LevelQuik Advanced Acrylic Primer should not be installed at ambient temperatures below 50°F (10°C) or above 90°F (32°C).
  • Concrete substrate tensile strength must be greater than 200 psi (1.4 N/mm2).
  • Repair all dormant or non-moving cracks before installation of LevelQuik Advanced Acrylic Primer.
  • Honor all expansion and movement joints, through primer and underlayment.

Mixing Ratios

Stir and use undiluted for non-porous surfaces.

Dilute up to 3 parts water to 1 part primer with clean, potable water for highly porous concrete surfaces. Highly absorptive substrates may require a second application of diluted primer.

Diluted primer must be used within 24 hours of mixing.

Mixing Procedures

Undiluted: Since settling may occur, stir using a low speed (300 rpm) power mixer; do not over-mix.

Diluted: Before dilution with water, stir with a low-rpm mixer for approximately 1 minute to re-suspend any settled material. Mix for 1 minute with dilution water using a low speed (300 rpm) mixer with a low-intensity mixing blade.

Application of Product

Apply with a push broom. Apply a thin, even coat; do not allow puddling. Allow to dry to a clear film (1 to 3 hours, depending on ambient conditions and dilution) before applying an appropriate selfleveling underlayment. Highly porous concrete surfaces (indicated by rapid drying or absorption of the primer on the substrate) may require a second coat of diluted primer. Areas must be reprimed if primer is allowed to dry more than 12 hours.

Cleaning of equipment

Clean with water before the material dries.


Store in a cool dry area. Keep from freezing.

Product Maintenance

Properly installed product requires no special maintenance.

Expected Wear

Properly installed tile will last for more than 60 years.
