Spread
Epoxy.com Product #691 Methyl Methacrylate (MMA) Flooring Primer 
evenly on the surface (no puddles) with notched trowels, and/or squeegees
and back rolled with short nap mohair rollers at no less than 100 sq ft/gal. on very
absorbent surfaces. Two coats may be necessary to get an even, resin-rich surface to bond with the next layer.

It is recommended to broadcast 16-30 mesh quartz sand (approximately 4 lbs/100 sq ft) into the wet primer. This
will help in the application of the coating or troweled mortar. Apply next application only after the primer is
completely hardened.
