TPO Primer

TPO Red Primer


TPO Red Primer is a VOC-compliant, solvent-based thermoplastic liquid to be applied to new or aged EverGuard TPO membranes where adhesion of water-based coatings is desired. TPO Red Primer is slightly tinted to distinguish primed areas on bright white TPO membranes. The surface of the treated area must be clean of all dirt, dust, and debris and be completely free of moisture prior to application of the primer.


TPO Red Primer is a required step when coating any NEW TPO (less than 3 months aged) and recommended for improved adhesion on any aged EverGuard® TPO membranes. TPO Red Primer is easy to install; it rolls on with a foam roller and dries quickly. Application of coating or sealant can begin as soon as the primer has dried completely.
