Thick, smooth & easy to apply
22 Aug 2015
By Wonderer
, Bourne, Lincs
" 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.. "

Smooth and Felxible
20 Aug 2015
By Migg
, Southampton
" 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. "

By youngwill

" Normally I use No Nonsense paint but as I had a lot of wood to prime I bought this as I could not find a larger No Nonsence could only find the 750ml, great paint easy to use and quick drying which is a bonus will defiantly use again. "

Impressive undercoat
13 Aug 2015
By wellearthed
, Perth
" Nice thick undercoat that is easy to apply and is dry in under two hours, even when the temperature is getting down to 12deg C or so.
Watch when painting the edges of wood as it is thick enough that you can get a little wall of paint on the back edge that needs sanded down before the next coat.
Very impressed with the paint and will be buying more of the same for future projects. "

MDF edge sealer and primer
14 Jul 2015
By Reclueso
, cornwall
" After trawling the tinternet pages and forums for advice on sealing and priming MDF, I chose this over more expensive primers such as BIN.
Works really well on sealing the edges of the board and works more as a brushable wood filler. Sands down well with a 180 / 320 / 400 grit.
quick drying also a great benefit when making new kitchen cabinet doors from scratch. "

Super Coverage
16 May 2015
By LLyn
, Fife
" Used to cover very dark stained skirting\doors before applying a light colour of satin paint. This beats trying to sand the stain off the doors. Dries really quick, easy to apply. I'll be buying some more as I've got a lot of wood to cover! "

" Not much I can say about a tin of undercoat really.... It covered very well, I applied it to a number of different coloured surfaces that were all having a light yellow topcoat. It covered all well and only required one coat before I could get on with the topcoat. "

Excellent product
20 Mar 2015
By regnierelad
, Hampshire
" Decided to try this, combined with Leyland satinwood gloss, as a means of obtaining a long lasting white finish to paintwork that had yellowed badly and also to cover stained/varnished woodwork.
So far so good - very good coverage and two coats on the stained woodwork gives a very good base for the gloss.
Rubs down well to give a good flat base and the quick drying time is a real bonus.
As for long term whiteness only time will tell but other reviews suggest good results and even the undercoat is a 100% improvement already !!!

Better than Zinssers 1-2-3 IMO
13 Mar 2015
By HandyJeremy
, Bristol
" This paint and Leyland contract emulsion handle differently and need to be put on thick. Really thick. They don't sag as much as normal paint so they can go on thicker, and then you get hide.
Both also stick well to the substrate, possibly because of high whiting content. When painting onto old gloss, this primer is as good as Zinssers 1-2-3, except for the hide which is actually even better once you've got the hang of loading it on.
Nothing beats Zinssers B-I-N for stiction, AFAIK. "
