Preparation

Prepare the surface by ensuring that it is clean, dry and free from dirt, grease or any other contaminants. Be sure to remove any defective coatings before you start.

  • Previously painted surfaces should be thoroughly rubbed down
  • Cracks or holes should be filled prior to applying the primer

  • Allow up to 24 hours between coats. For aged creosote or bitumen surfaces, allow 48 hours.

FAQ's

Q. Will Dulux Trade Aluminium Wood Primer offer protection?

A. The primer provides a protective barrier between the wood and the paint. It helps to seal the wood and prevent any moisture penetration, which could lead to issues like rotting, warping, or swelling of the wood over time.
