Blackfriar Acrylic Primer Undercoat is ideal for use inside and out. It dries quickly, so you can apply a second coat of Blackfriar Acrylic Primer Undercoat, enabling you to finish a whole job in one day. It is suitable for bare woodwork, hardboard, masonry, dry plaster and cement.


Ensure surface to be coated is clean, dry, sound and free from wax, grease or any other contamination. Treat knots and resinous areas with Blackfriar Patent Knotting and allow to dry before applying Blackfriar Acrylic Primer Undercoat. Exposed ferrous metal (e.g. nails) should be spot primed with the appropriate Blackfriar Metal Primer.


Stir thoroughly prior to use with a broad stirrer. The product may be applied by brush, roller or spray. Two coats are recommended to give best protection. On open end grain timber brush in well and apply two coats. For porous surfaces or if applying by spray the product may be thinned up to 10% with water.


Maximum 10% water.


Do not use under cold (less than 10°C), damp or humid conditions. Not suitable for use on metal surfaces - use Blackfriar Metal Primer or Blackfriar Multi Purpose Primer.

Drying Times

Touch dry in 1 - 2 hours. Recoat after 4 hours and within 3 days. Drying times are based on an ambient temperature of 20°C and 50% relative humidity. Lower temperatures or higher humidity will prolong the drying and overcoating times.

Clean Up

Remove as much product as possible from application equipment before washing with water. Do not empty into drains or water courses. Some local authorities have special facilities for the disposal of waste coatings.


Store in a dry, safe place. Do not store in environments where extreme temperatures may occur. Keep within 5-30°C. Do not store in direct sunlight.
