Masonry Primer/Sealer Gets a Makeover

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 22, 2014


Dunn-Edwards has rolled out a more alkali-resistant version of its Eff-Stop Premium epoxy-fortified acrylic primer/sealer for interior and exterior masonry.

The new formulation is designed to provide excellent alkali and efflorescence resistance on properly cured tilt-up concrete, poured-in-place concrete, stucco, and block.

“The new and improved Eff-Stop Premium provides key improvements in alkali resistance, making it suitable for use on surfaces with a pH level of 6 to 13.” said Ethan Opolion, product manager.

Formulated for greater alkali resistance, Eff-Stop Premium is designed to prevent damaging efflorescence on masonry structures.

Like all other Dunn-Edwards products, Eff-Stop Premium is eco-friendly, ethylene glycol (EG)-free, and produced in the world’s only LEED Gold-certified paint manufacturing plant.
