Overview

Dulux Trade Alkali Resisting Primer is a one coat primer formulated for use with interior and exterior plaster and masonry surfaces that may contain alkalis. It binds powdery surfaces and is also highly regarded for its excellent stain sealing properties. This solvent based primer will help to seal fire damaged surfaces after very thorough cleaning and rinsing. It can be used on surfaces that have been treated with a chemical fire retardant and is particularly effective in blocking nicotine stains.

Preparation

Ensure that the surfaces to be primed are sound, clean and dry (it is particularly important that new surfaces are completely dry) and free from all defective or poorly adhering material such as efflorescence, dirt, grease or wax.

  • Where necessary, surfaces should be rubbed down using a suitable abrasive paper and then dusted off.

Please Note: Special precautions should be taken when preparing pre-1960s paint surfaces over wood and metal as they may contain harmful lead.

Application

We always recommend to perform a test patch on a small area of the surface to be painted to ensure you are happy with the finished results.

  • Apply one coat of the primer with a brush only.
  • As with all solvent based paints, do not use in temperatures below 5°C and do not spray.
  • Allow to dry for 24 hours and apply an appropriate finishing coat or paint system.

Always follow the manufacturers instructions found on the tin

Aftercare & Storage
Ensure that the lid is kept firmly closed at all times and store the paint upright in a dry environment, avoiding extremes of temperature
FAQ's

Q. What is an alkali primer?

A. The primer is formulated to resist the effects of alkaline substances present in masonry surfaces such as new concrete, cement render, and plaster. Alkaline substances can cause conventional paint to blister, crack, or peel, but the Dulux Trade Alkali Resisting Primer creates a barrier that prevents such issues.

Q. Will Dulux Trade Alkali Resisting Primer improve adhesion?

A. This primer enhances the adhesion of subsequent paint coats to the masonry surface. It provides a stable base for paint application, ensuring better durability and longevity of the paint system.

Q. What can I use Dulux Trade Alkali Resisting Primer with?

A. Dulux Trade Alkali Resisting Primer is compatible with a wide range of water-based and solvent-based topcoats. This versatility allows for flexibility in selecting the desired paint finish for the project.
