For powdery roof tiles and concrete

NuPrime Surface Primer is an extremely fine particle size, wet adhesion promoted acrylic primer coat specifically designed for powdery roof tiles and concrete surfaces. Based on a technically advanced formula it is designed to provide deep penetration ensuring top coat adhesion. NuPrime is a non-yellowing clear primer which is fully compatible with all Nutech topcoat systems.

Applications & Features

NuPrime is a high quality compound adhesive which bonds with difficult to penetrate powdery surfaces. Used as an undercoat on powdery surfaces, NuPrime provides an excellent surface for top-coatings. Concrete and masonry surfaces undercoated with NuPrime require substantially less topcoat product compared to an unsealed surface.

Surfaces undercoated with NuPrime and top-coated with either Tileflex, Nuflex or NXT Cool Zone perform exceptionally after curing under all weather conditions to provide a 100% waterproof coating.

NuPrime has undergone rigorous testing and special consideration has been given to ensure the chemical composition and compatibility are suitable for all Australian, New Zealand, South-East Asian and UK conditions. NuPrime is a stable non-yellowing coating which retains both flexibility and strength whilst also providing superb protection against bacteria and mould on most surfaces.


  • Improved drying speed
  • Guaranteed intercoat adhesion
  • High resistance to mould and fungus
  • 100% water and weatherproof performance
  • Easy application by brush, roller or spray unit
  • Ultraviolet radiation resistant when overcoated
  • Economical primer coat
  • Excellent penetration through oxidised powdery tile surfaces

Application Guide

Avoid mist-spraying Nu-Prime on hot tiles to prevent flash surface drying.

Coat in cooler weather conditions or pre-wet the roof with cold water to reduce the surface temperature in very hot weather. The addition of several litres of water to 20 litres of Nu-Prime in very hot weather is recommended to assist penetration and reduce the potential for flash surface drying.

Flood apply the coating onto the tile to maximise the penetration through the powdery surface.
