Primer & Adhesives


Prime all surfaces (including oil-based paint, oil-based primers and latex or oil-based stain-kill coatings) with specified primers listed below. Prime all surfaces according to manufacturer’s directions. For best results, apply primer with a roller and leave to cure for at least 2 daysbefore installing SanFoot.

Please consult with Inspired Surfaces Limited before proceeding with any unusual conditions.

The use of the primer will prevent the adhesive from being excessively absorbed into the drywall and stop dry pockets, plus a primer promotes strippability to SanFoot. Moisture content in the wall substrate should be in a range of 7% to 9% or less. Check with a moisture meter if necessary.

If a situation is encountered where the walls were previously painted or primed, the surface should be lightly sanded to break the seal prior to applying an approved primer. One test strip of SanFoot should be hung to assure a strong bond between the existing paint/primer and the primer before proceeding with the installation.

Any failure caused by the existing painted / primed surface is the responsibility of the installing contractor and not of Inspired Surfaces Limited.
