Solvent-Based VOC Adhesive
MEL-PRIME N.E. solvent-based VOC adhesive is a ready-to-use adhesive specifically formulated to meet the maximum VOC content limits of 200 g/L for quick dry primers as required by VOC regulations in the northeastern U.S. It is red to reddish-brown in color and is furnished in one-gallon cans or five-gallon pails.
Apply MEL-PRIME N.E. solvent-based VOC adhesive to concrete to simultaneously prepare and dustproof new, old, vertical, and horizontal surfaces in one easy, economical operation. Use MEL-PRIME N.E. on all concrete surfaces to receive applications of MEL-ROL®, PRECON®, MEL-DEK™, and/or AIR-SHIELD™ from W. R. MEADOWS.
- High solids for optimum performance.
- Ready to use … no mixing or dilution required.
- For exterior vertical and horizontal applications.
- Low VOC content …less than 200 g/L.
1 Gallon Can
5 Gallon Pail
150 – 250 ft.2/gal.
When stored indoors and in original, unopened containers at temperatures between 40° – 90° F, shelf life is two years from date of manufacture.
VOC Content: 186 g/L
Surface Preparation … Concrete should be cured at least 72 hours, be clean, dry, smooth, and free of all voids. Repair spalled areas, fill all voids, and remove sharp protrusions. For additional surface preparation requirements, see instructions for applying MEL-ROL, PRECON, MEL-DEK, and/or AIR-SHIELD.
NOTE: Metal surfaces must be conditioned. They must also be clean, dry, and free of loose paint, rust, or other contaminants.
Application Method … Minimum application temperature for MEL-PRIME N.E. is 20° F. Apply MEL-PRIME N.E. with a roller or brush at a coverage rate of 150 – 250 ft.2/gal. Condition only the area to be covered with the membrane during the working day. Areas not covered with a membrane in 24 hours must be reconditioned.
Drying Time … Allow to dry for one to two hours, or until the conditioned surface feels tacky, but does not pick up when touched. If the work area is very dusty, apply membrane as soon as possible after MEL-PRIME N.E. is dry.
Cleanup … MEL-PRIME N.E. solvent-based VOC adhesive may be cleaned with mineral spirits.
Do not apply MEL-PRIME N.E. solvent-based VOC adhesive when rain is imminent, or on damp or frost-covered surfaces. Avoid allowing MEL-PRIME N.E. to puddle – this will lengthen drying time. Do not dilute; use as is. Do not apply on frozen concrete.
