A primer especially designed for the binding of loosely bound, powdery and chalking surfaces. Recommended for use when redecorating external walls which have been neglected and wall and ceiling surfaces previously coated with cement paints, distemper, lime wash etc. The application of emulsion and other pigmented finishes directly onto loosely bound surfaces invariably results in an early breakdown due to loss of adhesion.
Prior to the application of Crown Penetrating Primer, all loose, unsound and flaking paint and other contamination must be removed (refer surface preparation Data Sheet SP 1).
Characteristics: A special oil varnish medium incorporating an off-white marker pigment for identification purposes.
Advantages: Excellent adhesion and penetrating characteristics. Provides a firm, stable foundation for the application of a wide variety of decorative paint systems.
Thinning: Supplied ready for use but may be thinned with Crown White Spirit for application to rough textured surfaces. Avoid over thinning. Stir well before use.
Spreading Capacity: Due to its penetrating characteristics Crown Penetrating Primer, when properly applied, will only cover an area of 6-7 m2/l on smooth surfaces. Spreading capacity will be reduced when used on rough walls.
Equipment Cleaner: Crown White Spirit.
Colour range: Nearly transparent with an off-white marker pigment.
Pack sizes: 4 litres and 20 litres.
Flaking, Powdery, Lime washed, Distempered or Cement Painted surfaces: Thoroughly remove all possible loose and flaking material (refer Data sheet SP 2). Ensure that the building fabric is dry before priming. Apply liberally, by brush, 1 coat Crown Penetrating Primer. The application of a 2nd coat is advisable in severe circumstances.
