best primer i've used
4 Feb 2014
By alic76
, byfleet
"I brought the primer to paint on my skirting boards. The product is fantastic. No drips and goes on nicely. Would recommend a couple of coats, I then used your satin wood paint. The finished result looks amazing, and i would say this is great value for money.
Very happy customer.:-)

Fast drying
25 Jan 2014
By shalogie
, Glenrothes
"No smell to speak of, quite thick so no drips or runs. Dries quicker than that stated for Dulux etc so can be recoated more often in same day. Definite bonus.
It covered previously white painted wood ok but a bit patchy even after 3 coats on wood grained panelling. I cant say if Dulux or so would be any better but didnt fancy paying around £22 (for only 250ml) to find out!"

Great undercoat

By StevieDvd

"Made a really nice job of providing the base coat on a set of louvre doors (bare wood).
As others have said it dries quickly and allows several coats to be made in a short time ready for the topcoat the same day,"

"As a Professional Decorator, I was forced to use this Product, as I had ran out of my faithful "Dulux Primer Undercoat" This Product OUT performs Dulux in every aspect. its water Based. it Covers it Drys Quick, It accepts both solvent based and water based top coats, and of course its alot cheaper.. you cannot go wrong with this product... Brilliant paint product.."

Quick Dry undercoat
16 Aug 2012
By RayRG
, Somerset
"When we had to go from bare wood to top coat in 1 day this is the paint we used. Fabulous, well behaved, great coverage (we even thinned it for the 1st coat and it still covered well(ish)).
If you want to get 1 coat on, get on with something else, come back after lunch and apply 2nd coat, get on with something else and get your top coat on before going home - use this.

"Used this primer/undercoat on a piece of 15mm plywood with only a light sanding down first. Paint covered very well, applied without drag and dried quite quickly. It took the top coat very well and the overall finish is good.Good value for the money."

"Similar to other water based, quick dry, primers in terms of performance but lower cost per litre. Dried quickly and sanded quite easily before top coat. Obtained good gloss finish over this primer. OK."

Pretty good primer
22 Sep 2013
By Anonymous
, Guildford, Surrey
"Every ten years or so I try a different primer undercoat to my usual trusted Dulux Primer Undercoat - primarily because Dulux is so flippin' expensive. I have always ended up disappointed and have to blow the cobwebs out of my wallet and buy Dulux again.
This time it was slightly different.
This stuff is a very close second in terms of quality and definitely better value for money so I made do with it - it is more 'smeary' than Dulux and doesn't cover as efficiently, but its less than half the price and if you can be bothered to put three coats instead of two it's much better value for money.

Does The Job...
24 Jul 2013
By Riggers386
, West Yorkshire
"Ideal for priming the odd splicing or external facing etc, but acrylic primer needs overcoating quickly - I've met a few painters who are not 100% sold on it. That said, for my purposes, it's ideal, because it dries quickly, has little odour and I can rinse out the brushes in soapy water, which saves me having to carry tins of white spirit in the car, which inevitably end up getting spilled."
