Surfaces must be dry, clean and free from dust, oil and fuel spillage. CP Primer should be used to enhance initial adhesion of Preformed Surface Dressing on all sites.


Roll out enough material to cover the area to be surfaced and with the backing film upwards cut the Preformed Surface Dressing with a sharp knife. Then prime the substrate using CP Primer applying as thinly and evenly as possible as too much could result in the primer bleeding through or the debonding of the Preformed Surface Dressing.

When the CP Primer is touch dry, peel off the backing film and apply the Preformed Surface Dressing to the surface. Take care to ensure that the positioning of the Preformed Surface Dressing is accurate as once laid it is extremely difficult to remove. Edges should be butt jointed or overlapped to achieve a neat close-fitting finish.


Preformed Surface Dressing is available in 1m x 5m rolls. Each roll will cover 5m².


Preformed Surface Dressing is supplied in rolls 5m long by 1m wide, 30 rolls per pallet.


Rolls should be stored upright. Keep in dry store under cover and protect from frost and extreme heat.


Preformed Surface Dressing is produced to a manufacturing system accredited to ISO9001.
