Product Description
STAUF ERP-270 Perma-Seal is a two component, epoxy reaction resin based sealer for professional flooring installation on damp sub floors. ERP-270 will retard moisture pressure from a humid sub floor to an acceptable level for any flooring installation. It will bridge minor cracks in the sub floor. ERP-270 spreads easily and creates a dust free surface ready for safe installation of flooring. It increases the bonding of subsequently applied primers, leveling compounds and/or adhesives.
Pre-Installation Checklist
A successful installation requires proper preparation of the sub floor. Read and understand all applicable guidelines and technical data sheets before beginning installation. Follow industry standards and flooring manufacturer's recommendations for sub floor moisture content, design, layout and application of flooring materials. All slab constructions must meet the specific requirements of the floor covering to be installed.
Sub Floor Examination
Do not apply sealer onto a visibly damp or wet surface. Examine concrete sub floor for color, cleanliness, porosity and pre-existing residues PRIOR TO installation (for details see Technical Information #18 @ Concrete sub floors must be checked for any contaminants (for details see Technical Information #16 @
Prior to installation, the sub floor must be checked according to applicable installation guidelines. It must be solid and sound, clean, free of chaps and anti-adherents, as well as resistant to pressure and tension. Check for missing or compromised vapor barriers and hydrostatic pressure. Perform RH or CaCl moisture tests following ASTM standards. Results of 99% RH or 25# CaCl could indicate that there is a higher moisture content in the slab than what tests can measure and there might be hydrostatic pressure and/or a compromised or missing vapor barrier.
Sub Floor Preparation
The condition of the sub floor will determine which type of mechanical treatment is required (e.g. wire brushing, sanding, grinding or shot blasting). Dust, paint, curing compounds, sealers, residual adhesives or other surface pollutants MUST be removed by suitable means. Extent of sub floor preparation can only be determined at the site by the installer. Clean the surface with an industrial vacuum cleaner, tack or damp mop floor before application. Cracks and gaps must be treated prior to application of primers, sealers, leveling compounds, and/or adhesives (for details see Technical Information #19 @
Mixing of Components
Lid contains hardener. Pierce all the way through plastic disc in center of lid and the bottom of the lid using a long screwdriver or similar tool. Let the hardener flow into the lower part of the bucket. Remove the lid and mix both components with mixing paddle for at least 3 minutes. Use an electric drill with less than 300 rpm until an even color is reached. Avoid air entrapment by mixing slowly and using an appropriate mixing paddle. Make sure to mix along wall and bottom-part of the container as well. Temperature of both components should be at least 50 °F before mixing. Empty pail onto floor immediately after mixing to prevent sealer from heating up and drying in the pail.
Installation Procedure
Mix pail according to mixing instructions. Apply sealer undiluted with approved applicator. Make sure sealer is spread evenly and up to the perimeters. The spread rate is critical for a successful installation. Do not exceed the maximum coverage. For sub floor moisture up to 97% RH (in-situ probe), spread ERP-270 over no more than 3.4 m²/L. For sub floors with a moisture content up to 100% RH (in-situ probe), spread ERP-270 over no more than 1.7 m²/L. For use under resilient flooring please see Technical Information #4 @ for details.
When using other than STAUF products in conjunction with STAUF primers, sealers, leveling compounds, or adhesives, STAUF denies any and all responsibility for any ensuing problems and/or damages without prior written authorization from STAUF.
Do not dilute primer/sealer or mix with other products.

In case of accident, injury, spill or exposure, see MSDS sheet for information. Consult technical data sheet at for updated information.
Sealer will not prevent moisture damages from hydrostatic pressure, underground springs, damaged water pipes, sinks, icemakers, faulty plumbing, flooding, etc.
