Primers: Performance at every layer

Primer paints play an integral role in the painting process due to the performance attributes they bring to the coating system. These attributes include: 

  • Adhesion
  • Stain blocking
  • Tannin blocking (in wood applications)

To meet end-user needs, primers need to balance performance and economy to acheive a nice white, primed surface without breaking the bank.
