WRX Trade Primer is a water-based, acrylic emulsion, silicone interior primer that can be applied to any interior surface that is ready to be primed. Using WRX Trade primer ensures good paint adhesion and helps to prevent flaking or peeling.
For best results, make sure the surfaces to be painted are sound, clean and dry. Remove any loose or flaking material. Repair damaged areas. Glossy surfaces should be sanded down to provide a key. Wear a suitable mask if dry sanding. Avoid the inhalation of dust Special precautions should be taken during surface preparation of pre-1960s paint surfaces as they may contain harmful lead.
It penetrates the surfaces deeply and creates solid surfaces onto which the paint can hold on. It reduces topcoat paint consumption by saturating the raw surfaces as it is reinforced. It does not prevent the wall from breathing, thanks to the porous composition. It has a high vapour permeability. It penetrates and reinforces the surface. It prevents premature drying. It eliminates colour ripples that are likely to occur in topcoat paint on surfaces with a different absorbing capacity. It has a high covering power, thus reduces the paint consumption and labour in colour conversion for previously painted surfaces. Particularly, it prevents different textures formed on repaired surfaces, from being seen on the topcoat paint. It eliminates colour ripples caused by any difference in the texture. It allows the new water-based paint to adhere to the old solvent-based paint layer.
Do not apply in damp or humid conditions or room temperatures below 10°C. Stir well before use. Ready to use. It can be thinned with a maximum of 5% water if required. Suitable for application by brush or roller. For best results, load the brush generously. The primer should be applied in a single coat by following the shade.
