Primers

PRIMERS SERVE MANY PURPOSES

  • They seal substrates, allowing for more uniform finish
  • They can ensure bonding between the substrate and topcoat
  • Aid in hiding and blocking stains

WHEN TO USE A PRIMER


  • Porous Surfaces- Sealing the surface for better gloss uniformity
  • Gloss Surfaces- Adhesion to difficult shiny surfaces
  • Colour- Dramatic colour changes
  • Stains- Water stains, fire, smoke damage, nicotine, crayon, marker and all tough stains
  • Changing from alkyd paint to latex paint

PRIMER IS NOT REQUIRED


  • On cabinets when using Cabinet & Furniture paint
  • Pre-mixed Rust Coat (2 coats are a must on rusted metal)
  • On vinyl siding
  • Repainting walls without a dramatic colour change
  • Under a solid stain
