Blackfriar Aluminium Wood Primer is for hardwoods, to prevent bleed through to fresh paintwork. Specifically formulated for painting new or old bare hard or resinous woods.


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 Aluminium Wood Primer.


Stir thoroughly prior to use with a broad stirrer. The product may be applied by brush, short pile roller or spray. Apply a generous even coat and brush well into the grain. Apply one or two coats as required.

Do not use under cold (less than 5°C), damp or humid conditions. Oily hardwoods such as Teak or Iroko must be fully degreased with white spirit or methylated spirits prior to application of this product. Failure to do this may result in extended drying times and/or adhesion failure.

Drying Time

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

how long is the drying time please?


Touch dry in 2 - 4 hours. Recoat after 16 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.

Question: Hi Is this product suitable for marine applications, specifically the hulls of wooden boats? Thanks

Blackfriar Aluminium Wood Primer is not suitable for this applicaton but Teamac Aluminium Wood Primer is. Our normal specification for new, bare timber would be;

1 coat of Coo-Var Penetrating Wood Primer, followed by 1 coat of Teamac Aluminium Wood Primer finish with 2 coats of Teamac Marine Gloss.
