Penetrating Primer: Apply 2 coats Crown Permacote Exterior Emulsion with Teflon®


  1. When overcoating walls in sound condition with the same shade, the application of 1 coat may be sufficient.
  2. When overcoating a dark colour with a light shade, the application of 3 coats may be necessary.
  3. Choice of colours for technical reasons (often dependent upon pigment origin and type) an additional coat will often be required when using certain shades (particularly Bright Yellows, Greens, Oranges, Reds refer colour card for details). The use of these colours should be avoided on medium and low-cost projects. Where these low opacity colours are to be used on bare plaster, or for overcoating dark colours, the application of a first coat of a paler shade offering superior coverage is recommended. Consult Crown Technical Advisory Department for advice.
  4. For chemical reasons, certain dark colours offer less resistance to fading when subjected to ultra violet light, especially in tropical climates. Consult Crown Technical Department for further details.
