" Used this for a project using MDF I wanted a primer/undercoat that would help keep the edges smooth. I was recommended that an acrylic primer would work just as well as the more expensive products designed for this job. And low and behold it worked perfectly. I gave it 3 coats and obviously sanded between each coat. I could have got away with 2 but wanted to make sure it was smooth as the face. The price is good for the ammount that you get with good coverage. And would definately use this product again and again. Only gripe is the design of the container when trying to pour there is a lip that holds a fair bit but I can live with this. "

It's a Primer / Undercoat
12 Dec 2015
By
, Culross
" This paint works extremely well, just like all Leyland products. It is after all a "Primer" used as an "undercoat" providing a key to the surface before the top coat is applied. Yes, it does go on thin but that's how it works ... "

" I really like this stuff - I've used it on wood,plaster and masonry. It covers well and provides a sound and solid base coat for emulsions or gloss.
It even blocks certain stains so saves time and money.
I used to occasionally flirt with others but kept coming back to this one - guess I'm hooked "

Great undercoat
25 Nov 2015
By
, Belfast
" I use this undercoat/ primer on all my painted work. Applies nicely and usually touch dry within half an hour and I can apply a second coat as little as 1hour after finishing 1st coat... Cuts back nicely to leave a smooth finish. This is my prefered undercoat primer when quick drying times are essential... "

" Really surprised with this product, went on so easy, covered dark stained doors with great ease and unbelievable in one coat.
No strong after smell, and dry's very quickly to a really smooth finish, plus one further bonus is the Brushes wash out perfectly clean with water.
Will certainly continue to use this paint.

Better Than Expected!
3 Oct 2015
By

" For the price I wasn't expecting much, but I was pleasantly surprised!
Once given a good stir, it covered well, but the bare wood needed a second coat.
One postive plus point,is it dries in about 30 minutes, & is recoatable in 1-2 hours, so it's easy to get 2 coats on & the gloss applied in a day.
And being water base I found good synthetic paint brush is better to use with this paint.

" I've always been a Dulux user and tried this Leyland undercoat/primer on bare outdoor woodwork then finished off with Leyland High Gloss. Goes on great, very quick drying (two coats on bare wood) and a very tough finish. Overall, extremely pleased and great price from Screwfix - my staple for the future! "

" This is an excellent acrylic primer, Smooth, easy to mix and apply. It makes more sense to buy this rather than the economy versions when you consider that it's only about 50p per litre more expensive and will very likely cover a much larger area.. "

" This does exactly what I wanted and at a great price. I used it to undercoat and MDF unit (post a mist coat) which worked very well and saved me a fortune.
The finish is somewhere between the head on a bitter and cream cheese. "
