Properties

Description

CERESIT® CT 17 TRANSPARENT is a solvent-free universal primer for substrates (walls, floors, ceilings) indoor and outdoor prior to fixing ceramic tiles, pouring floors, fixing floor lining, papering, puttying, painting, or fixing thermal insulation boards. Substrates primed with CT 17 TRANSPARENT (all kinds of absorbent substrates) are of lower absorbency, which prevents too rapid over drying of adhesive mortars, flooring, putties and paints. Available canister size: 5 l and 10 l.
