Easy to use, good coverage
20 Aug 2015
By Jw64
, Surrey
" Used this on a tanalised fence prior to undercoating. Covered as well as any other branded paint I've used and dried nicely - not too quick so as to cause brush clogging if you know what I mean. Day wasn't hot mind, just normal temp. I also used a mini foam roller which also performed well. Recommended. "

Acrylic undercoat/primer
24 Jun 2015
By Londoni

" A paint that flows on well and covers very well,and at a good price.There is quite an amount of thickness at the bottom of the tin, but stirs in quite quickly and must add to the content. "

Not bad primer
11 Apr 2015
By Jamesthechippy
, Maidstone
" So in my work I use lots of this primer and as a money saving idea thought I would try this, overall not a bad primer. As normal I thinned it by 10 - 15% otherwise these are much too thick to use, it covered well but was a little harder to flatten down before undercoating but that might be because I needed to thin it slightly more. Overall good value and will use again.
P.s there are a few reviews on here complaining about not being able to stir in the lumps at the bottom, all large tins of primer have these so just leave them be and ignore its there!

Decent primer/undercoat
17 Aug 2014
By jimmyjesus
, Sunderland
" Needs a good stir before using but after you've done this its as good as any of the main painting brands acrylic primer u/c.I know its classed as an undercoat as well as a primer & it does a decent job of undercoating but for a top class finish with less brush marks i prefer using a stand alone U/C after priming with this.All in all its a decent product for a decent price.

Good stuff!!

" Usually go for Leyland but thought I would give this a try. Needs a good stir first.......but liked the way it performed. Good opacity and dried quickly.
Now I think I actually prefer it.!

Leyland Acrylic U/C is better
10 Sep 2014
By newdovetailer

" Does not mix well, and very drippy. Got this in error instead of the previously used Leyland equivalent. Finish is the same but Leyland much easier to use and same price. "

Paints like water
18 Apr 2015
By golum
, Plymouth
" Despite its name, this is no use as an undercoat paint. Agree with other users that it is difficult to stir - never come across a paint with such thick lumps like this. I cannot comment on its effeciency on bare paint, but as an undercoat, it went on like water. It did not stick to the previous paint (I did rub down well to give a good key). I wiped it all off and went out and purchased some better undercoat paint. "

Worst ever primer
11 Jun 2014
By svengali
, Cheddar
" This primer was a disaster.
Impossible to mix, even with a mechanical mixing paddle.
This is my second try at 'No Nonsense' paint. The first was emulsion with similar excruciating mixing characteristics - but a least it finally mixed.
Low turnover/old stock perhaps? "

The one to AVOID
17 Jul 2013
By Awan
, London
" Very thin runny paint, with lots of paint stuck at the bottom of the tin. Regardless of what you do to mix it, it won't mix. Avoid it not even worth concidering. "
