Do I need to carry out any mechanical prep to a power-floated concrete floor before applying a coating or lines?
We certainly advise it as it will provide a better finish with excellent adhesion & longer life. If it is not possible, there are primers which we recommend as the next best option

Only certain machines are suitable, so take further advice from sales team. We recommend the Graco 98:2 for MMA installations
Can I apply UltraLine onto concrete without primer?
We always recommend priming concrete before application of MMA products, for specific technical reasons. However, the UltraLine is a 'thick film' MMA and is widely used on external concrete areas without primer with very high success rates. Please refer to Technical Data Sheet for more information.
Is Patchmaster a permanent repair system?
Patchmaster is designed to be used as a temporary short-term repair solution, keeping roads open and preventing further damage, as untended potholes are a major safety risk and rapidly grow into a major defect.
Can I apply your products onto new asphalt or tarmacadam?
We always recommend allowing sufficient time for the surface to stabilise and for oxidisation to take place. It is difficult to put a timescale on this, as it is weather-dependent and varies between a few days in summer to several weeks or more in winter. There are ways of priming if coatings have to be applied immediately. You can see a list of our primers HERE
Are your products slip-resistant?
Yes, we do have products and additives which offer good slip resistance when applied correctly to suitable substrates. Typically SRV45 or more is considered suitable for medium risk areas such as walkways, rising to SRV65 or more for high risk areas such as High Friction Surfacing
How quickly can I use the surface after it’s laid?
