Technical Data Sheet


Versatile pigmented plaster primer saves time when topcoating. Exhibits exceptional alkali resistance and sealing properties. Formulated with modified Styrene Acrylic Solution.

Specifically recommended as a primer for new dry plaster (less than 18% moisture), Rhinolite, brick, concrete, fibre cement and various types of composition boarding. Ideal for sealing old chalky surfaces such as old PVA, powder distemper and lime wash provided they have been well brushed/sanded down. Excellent sealer for Gypsym Plaster when overcoating with PVA / Acrylics.

New Work:
All surfaces must be clean, dry and free from all foreign contaminants. New plaster moisture content not to exceed 15% before application.

Previously Painted Surfaces:
The effective life of any coating system depends on the degree of preparation which the surface has previously received. The better the surface preparation the more effective the performance of the paint system will be. Powdery, chalky surfaces must be thoroughly wire-brushed/sanded. All loose and flaking paint to be removed.

Not to be used as a primer on metal. Optimum results achieved if moisture content does not exceed 15% on masonry surfaces.
