Primers & Undercoats
Wall primer is required before applying paint to any surface. Sealing porous areas & extending coverage will ensure a longer-lasting coat. Available in different variants such as MDF paint, wood primer and metal primer, it is important that you choose the right one for the job. Oil-based primers create barriers to stop wood from bleeding through, typically used on weathered wood such as windows and doors.
Water-based primers are flexible, fast-drying, and easy to clean. Used on softwood, brick, concrete, and some metals, they come in low or no VOC formulas. Shellac based primers are best used on interior surfaces to seal odors and provide stain blocking, but give off more fumes and will require thinning. Top brands are available in various colours and finishes to suit your needs. Suitable for interior or exterior use.
