NON STAINING... mildewcide protected when mixed with Dependable Latex Liquid.
NON ALKALINE... adhesive friendly.
NON SHRINKING... crack resistant, dust free, in applications thick or thin.
VERSATILE... use on virtually any flooring surface; large or small; in all applications from particle thin to over 1" thick. For new construction or remodeling projects... drywall and sheetrock taping, mortar or grouting, setting sills or fixtures... the single source product of choice.
DEPENDABLE WHITE LATEX LIQUID is highly recommended as an admixture in most applications, particularly when mildew resistance, water resistance and/or increased adhesion are desired. The biocide added to LATEX LIQUID protects SKIMCOAT from mold and mildew. Adhesives and vinyl floors should contain their own mold/mildew protection.
