Priming of pavement
Priming is a preliminary treatment before the application of a sprayed seal or asphalt surfacing on a prepared pavement using a suitable primer. Primers improve the bond between the pavement and the cover surface by penetrating the pavement.
SAMI research and development has resulted in specific primers for special applications. SAMI provides both solvent based and emulsion primers.
Solvent based, quick drying penetrating primer (QDP) for use on concrete surfaces.
Emulsion based penetrating primer formulated to penetrate and prime stabilised surfaces.
Penetrating primer designed for use on concrete in confined areas such as tunnels.
