Rustins Aluminium Wood Primer is an oil based wood primer containing aluminium pigment.
This wood primer is ideal for interior and exterior use, on a range of bare wooden surfaces. It seals the surface, provides an effective barrier against moisture and provides adhesion for subsequent coats of paint.
It is similar in composition to pink and white wood primers, but the aluminium pigment provides greater water resistance.
Apply to clean, dry and smooth wooden surfaces, free from dust, oil, grease, wax and other contaminants likely to affect adhesion. All knots should be sealed with Rustin’s Knotting before priming.
Apply 1 or 2 coats depending on requirements. Coverage is approx. 15 square metres/litre per coat depending on the absorbency of the surface.
The primer is touch dry within 2-3 hours, depending on temperature and humidity. Allow 12-16 hours to fully dry.
Once dry, the wood primer must be covered with an undercoat.
Rustins Aluminium Wood Primer is available in 250ml, 500ml and 1L sizes.
Full product data sheet and safety data sheet are available on request.
