FlintPrime QD is a professional-grade, quick-dry asphalt primer formulated with a high-penetrating solvent and select asphalt.

It is designed to promote superior adhesion of self-adhered modified bitumen membranes and those applied by hot asphalt, cold adhesive, and torch; as well as excellent adhesion promotion for conventional built-up roofing (BUR) to a variety of roofing substrates.

It can be used to prime newly laid concrete or cement decks, gypsum, masonry, thermal insulation, and weathered roofing prior to applying built-up roofing.

FlintPrime meets ASTM D 41, FED SPEC SS-A-701.

1. Surface must be clean, dry, and free of moisture both on and beneath the surface. Scrape off any gravel to provide a smooth surface. Sweep roof thoroughly to remove as much dust, dirt, and debris as possible. Use wire brush to remove rust and scale from metal.

2.  Apply a thin, single coat of FlintPrime over the entire surface with a roofing brush or heavy-duty spray equipment. Brush out any excess immediately after application. Avoid over-application and buildup of surface film.

3. Allow to dry thoroughly before applying adhesives or affixing roofing membranes in place.  When dry, FlintPrime will be tacky to the touch but will not transfer to thumb or glove.

4. Clean tools with mineral spirits or paint thinner.
