Application Instructions

Surface Preparation: All work surfaces should be clean, dry, and free of dirt, dust, debris, oils, loose and/or embedded gravel, un-adhered coatings, deteriorated membrane and other contaminants that may result in a surface that is not sound or is uneven.

  1. All work surfaces should be clean, dry, free of dirt, dust, debris, oils, loose gravel, un-adhered coatings, deteriorated membrane and other contaminants that may result in a surface that is not sound.
  2. Brush, spray, or roll Millennium Universal Primer over the entire prepared surface. Applies in one coat. Allow primer to completely dry. Remove all heavy or puddled areas to ensure thorough drying. Drying time will vary based on temperature and relative humidity.
  3. After primer has completely dried, apply Millennium Adhesives in accordance with current product application instructions.
Basic Use

  • Millennium Universal Primer is intended to bind fine particulate matter such as dust on a gravel surfaced built-up roof or asphalt particles on a crazed or “alligatored” roof surface.

Note: Application of Millennium Universal Primer is not a substitute for proper removal of loose gravel or debris from the substrate by vacuuming and/or power washing.
