RLA Universal Primer


RLA Universal Primer is a rapid drying, solvent-free, low VOC water-based acrylic primer designed to prepare porous and non-porous substrates for further applications. This versatile primer is suitable for use over ceramic tiles and painted surfaces (water-based only). The water-based acrylic formulation ensures easy application and quick drying times.


  • Sizes: 5 Litre, 20 Litre

Recommended Use:

RLA Universal Primer is ideal for enhancing adhesion and compatibility with cement-based ceramic tile adhesives and levelling compounds. It is specifically formulated for both porous and non-porous surfaces, providing a secure base for subsequent products.


Approximately 5 to 10m² per litre, though spread rates may vary depending on substrate absorbency. Achieve optimal results by following proper application guidelines.

Setting Times:

Allow the primer to dry to a transparent film for approximately 30 minutes to 1 hour (@ 23°C) before applying subsequent products. The drying time may vary based on substrate absorbency and climate conditions. Once RLA Universal Primer forms a tack-free dry film, it is ready for levelling compounds.

Clean Up:

Clean tools immediately after use with water. This water-based acrylic primer ensures easy cleanup and minimizes environmental impact.

Shelf Life / Storage:

RLA Universal Primer has a shelf life of 12 months when stored in its original unopened packaging. Keep the containers in a dry area off the ground for optimal preservation.

Container Sizes:

Available in 5 and 20-liter containers to suit various project needs.

Notes & Precautions:

  • Drying times may be extended when applied in cold ambient temperatures.
  • Do not apply Universal Primer on tiles that have a wax or excessively high gloss coating.
  • Not suitable for substrates with rising dampness. Internal use only.
