Wood primer is a general purpose oil based undercoat (for interior and exterior) coating put on wood, specifically before the wood is painted with a final coat. Using a wood primer increases the durability of your paint work, ensures better adhesion of the paint to the surface, and helps protect the wood that’s being painted.
Provides excellent adhesion for subsequent over coating with undercoat and gloss topcoats. NOTE: Wood Primer is not recommended for use on highly resinous timber.
