Liquid Concrete Polymer Concentrate
SureCrete’s liquid concrete polymer concentrate is a 55% solids copolymer emulsion (vinyl acetate-ethylene or VAE) designed for use as a fortifying admixture for cement-based products.
Liquid Concrete Polymer Concentrate Can Be Used For:
- Improved Adhesion
- Reduced Permeability
- Increased Abrasion Resistance
- Assists the Curing Process
- Improved Flexural Strength
- Improved Tensile Strength
- Enhanced Freeze/Thaw Durability
Concrete Polymer Concentrate will enhance the properties of any concrete and is typically used for patching materials, bridge decks, grouts, stucco, decorative thin cement-based overlays.
Some surfaces that might need to be prepped with Liquid Concrete Polymer:
- old concrete slabs
- bridging floors and gaps
- worn-down surfaces
- overly porous concrete
- over or tightly troweled surfaces
- freeze/thaw cycle affected environments
- interior residential floors
- interior commercial flooring
SC POLYMER IS CONCENTRATED AND IS NOT DESIGNED TO BE USED WITHOUT DILUTING.

SurePrime is a 28% solids copolymer emulsion (vinyl acetate ethylene or VAE) designed for use in combination with cement-based overlays as a bonding agent.
SurePrime offers advantages when placing an overlay to its intended substrate:
- Improved adhesion
- Reduced permeability
- Increased abrasion resistance
- Improved flexural strength
- Improved tensile strength
- Enhanced freeze/thaw durability
For substrates that are excessively "thirsty", it will help slow down the wicking away of moisture from the overlay being applied increasing workability.
SurePrime may be applied, allowed to dry, and as the overlay is placed, it "rewets" and the bond is established. SurePrime performs both horizontally (slabs or decks) and vertically (walls).
SureCrete’s concrete stain primer can be used for substrates that are excessively porous prior to staining with a water-based stain.
Eco-Prime is used in conjunction with Eco-Stain.
It was created for substrates that are excessively porous. Some concrete, particularly those finished poorly (not closed with a steel trowel), broomed, or very old concrete, may absorb Eco-Stain so deeply that little color, if any, is visible. Eco-Prime reduces the porosity helping the color to reach full development. EcoPrime is clear and will leave no color when dry. Eco-Prime may be used across an entire project if excessive porosity is apparent. It may also be used on isolated areas that are "open".
Frequently Asked Questions About Concrete Polymer Concentrate Liquid:
Q: Do I need to use Concrete Polymer Concentrate in conjunction with SureCrete Overlays and Mixes?
A: No, SureCrete’s Concrete Polymer Concentrate Liquid was designed for those looking to create their own bag mix design formulation.
