Dependable's WHITE LATEX LIQUID®WHITE LATEX LIQUID® is formulated for use with DEPENDABLE WHITE SKIMCOAT™ Underlayment, it provides greater adhesion, water resistance, flexibility and mildewcide protection. It may be used as an additive with SKIMCRETE® XL and other DEPENDABLE trowelable products wherever a non re-emulsifiable latex primer or additive is required. It also may be used as a primer over textured or smooth metal surfaces, adhesive residues, or under leveling products used in exterior applications under certain circumstances in accordance with specific instructions.

After preparing the surface, use a clean mixing bucket and implements adding measured powder into measured liquid. Do not floor mix, use a piece of sheet vinyl or mixing bucket. Leftover residue can accelerate the chemical reaction and/or reduce working time of new mix. Mix to a lump-free trowelable consistency. Follow printed mixing ratios of the appropriate Dependable Floor Underlayment product.

PRIMING

Metal surfaces: Remove any rust or contaminates. Wash and allow to dry completely. Apply a brush-coat of WHITE LATEX LIQUID®. Allow to nearly dry and become tacky.

Porous Concrete and Gypsum Substrates

DEPENDABLE WHITE LATEX LIQUID® may be used to prime porous substrates for floor covering installation. Application rate will vary depending upon the substrate’s porosity, but should be 150-250 SF/gallon. Allow to dry, usually 1-2 hours, and then begin adhesive application.

Underlayment Boards

The installer may wish to seal the joints, hammer-indents and any other “raw” spots with DEPENDABLE WHITE LATEX LIQUID®. This will keep the moisture in the patch material and/or adhesive from being drawn into the board, which may cause swelling and/or delamination.

KEEP FROM FREEZING

Freeze-thaw stable: If frozen, allow to thaw at room temperature of 70ºF. Stir. If smooth, then latex should be safe to use.

NON-TOXIC NON-FLAMMABLE

Keep container closed when not in use. If taken internally, call physician and treat for ingestion of latex. KEEP OUT OF THE REACH OF CHILDREN.
