" This is the best priming paint on the market. Never fails! Added bonus is that it is water based so a soap and water clean up is all that is required. "

Excellent Primer
15 Apr 2015
By makearacket
, Buxton, Derbyshire
" Was recommended this product by a decorator to prime a metal post box which we had ordered in black but wanted to re-paint in a RAL colour.
Went on very easily and provided excellent adhesion for top coat.

" I needed to paint a conti plas/pine wardrobe for my daughter and this paint covered in two coats. very easy to apply and dries really quickly. I used a small roller for the flat areas which made the job very quick to do. Excellent product and sticks and covers very well "

Lifesaver
2 Mar 2015
By WimbledonEd
, London
" This stuff is a little pricey and I was slightly sceptical after handing over the cash for a very small tin, but it's the business. Have used it for 3 tricky jobs and it's been great for each.
1) Priming MDF. Usually really absorbent, but this stuff goes straight on
2) Painting over water damage/stainage on a ceiling. Completely blocked the stains, never to be seen again
3) Covering peeling paint on a wall. Painter didn't use a mist coat on an small area we had to re-plaster. Scraped and re-sanded, then primed with this stuff and it's good as new.
Always keep a tin in the shed now. "

1 Solution for many of jobs
23 Feb 2015
By Barrymc
, Manchester
" I have used this on plenty of jobs like covering water stains on plaster (not re-appeared were many other products have, priming new plaster (small areas as it would be costy to do a whole room) priming skirting boards. Applying to gloss paint and re-glossing, Stopping an antique mahogany wardrobe from bleeding then applying annie sloane paint on top. (Stain will run if not and smells vile for weeks) in all fairness I have only used a few other primers so can't really compare. Either way I'm more than happy with this so do not intend on using anything else. "

Amazing stuff
14 Sep 2014
By RenovationChris
, Wirral
" This stuff is brilliant. It has a ton of uses as a general primer/sealer but one of the amazing things is it's adhesion and its opacity. If you've ever painted a surface where you just feel like you're moving the paint around then give it a coat of this stuff first, you'll be very glad you did.
We were having problems getting emulsion to adhere and cover well on cornice work, a coat of this was like a miracle - adhered brilliantly, very opaque, and the finishing coat of emulsion gripped to it perfectly. Even worked perfectly over a poorly adhered first layer of emulsion. Get some, its worth the money as in the end it saves you time. "

" THIS IS A BRILLIANT PRODUCT - AND DOES EXACTLY WHAT IT SAYS ON THE TIN...simple for even the most inept diy'er like me. Coverage and application easy...dries within the stated hour and able gloss over the same day. Only 4 stars for reliability -- simply because only used yesterday and have to wait for at least one wInter to judge the effectiveness....DIRECT BULL'S EYE HIT FROM ME... "

Bathroom primer
21 Jun 2014
By lisho
, Milton Keynes
" Have used this to prime newly plastered walls and ceiling in my bathroom.
The product is really good and used by a lot of pros I have since found out.
The product dries really fast, so you need to get yourself and the area your working in sorted before you start, its re-paintable within the hour so you really can complete your makeover within the day.
Also used it to cover up a wall which had previously had a leak and this worked where stain block spray had failed.
Excellent primer highly reccommended "

" Used it to cover woodwork in house that had had 60 a day smoker .... excellent job. Water based so dries quick and goes on quick even without sanding prior to application. Gives an excellent key for top coat. My new go to primer/undercoat. "

Great stuff
11 Dec 2014
By deeor
, Newtownards
" So far I have used this paint to:
cover grubby old contiplas cupboards before repainting them. It worked perfectly.
treat heavy water staining on a white ceiling. The staining was heavy and at first I thought the paint wasn't going to work because attempts with other products hadn't worked. I put on a second coat and the stain was hidden. No problem putting white emulsion on over it either.
I'm very well pleased with this versatile paint.

" Hi
This paint should not be called a stain stop! It is a good primer as a base coat but far better stain stops on the market. "
