FPE Oil Primer/Undercoat is a high performance, tintable primer for most interior and exterior wooden surfaces. This primer is an ideal foundation for the HOLLANDLAC, ECO and Eurolux House Paint systems. Application of Primer/Undercoat is an absolute necessity on new, unpainted surfaces which are to receive HOLLANDLAC Enamel or Swedish Putty. On exterior substrates in poor condition, we strongly recommend the application of Oil Primer/Undercoat – its excellent hiding and filling properties are especially desirable in restoration work as it provides a sound foundation for final coats of HOLLANDLAC or ECO. The use of Oil Primer/Undercoat makes application of paint easier, faster and more economical. This high performance primer will ensure maximum adhesion and longevity of the finish coat. It is easy to apply and provides good hiding and matchless filling power. A good undercoat prevents penetration of moisture and ensures uniform opacity of finish coats. Oil Primer/ Undercoat is so durable that one coat will protect new exterior wood for up to twelve months without applying a finish coat!

Surface should be clean, dry and free of dust, oil, grease and all foreign material that would affect adhesion. Prior to priming, all cracks or surface blemishes should be filled, sanded smooth and cleaned thoroughly. Shellac all knots before priming. This sealer dries in ten minutes. Tools: Use first quality, clean natural bristle brush. New Unpainted Wood: After preparation apply one coat and allow to dry for a minimum of 24 hours before recoating. On new construction, we highly recommend that all exterior wood be primed on all ”six” sides before nailing in place. There is no need for these wooden elements to dry before nailing. By priming the ends and open grain of exterior woodwork, you will prevent moisture intrusion and protect the value of new construction. If primer is absorbed by new wood and uniform surface film is not created, repriming should take place before finish paint is applied. .75L container covers 120 square feet. 2.5L container covers 400 square feet.
