It is suitable for all timbers, especially high resinous types. Resists resin staining and blistering of topcoats.

Surface Preparation

All surfaces should be clean, dry, sound and free from contaminants. New wood should be sanded prior to coating to ensure an adequate "key" is produced.

Application Conditions

As dictated by normal good painting practice. In confined spaces, provide adequate ventilation during application and drying.

Preceding Coat

Apply Coo-Var Aluminium Wood Primer direct to wood.

Subsequent Coat

Most conventional, white spirit based top coats.
