Preparation

Ensure the surfaces is clean, dry and free from dirt and grease as this may affect adhesion.

  • For new or burnt off woodwork, rub down the surface with glass paper to a smooth finish.
  • Bare wood - treat any knots or resinous parts with a knotting solution or stain blocker.
  • Prviously painted surfaces should be sanded to provide a key for the primer and undercoat to adhere to.
  • Fill any voids or gaps with an appropriate filler such as Polycell Wood Filler for general repairs.
Application

Do not apply if there is a risk of rain or if the temperature is likely to fall below 8°C during application or drying. We recommend performing a test patch to ensure you are happy with the finished results.

  • Stir well and apply liberally and evenly with a synthetic brush or good quality medium pile roller.
  • Allow to dry for 4-6 hours between coats, we recommend applying two coats.
  • For best results use Sandtex Rapid Dry Plus Paint in Satin or Gloss as a top coat.
FAQ's

Q. Will Sandtex Rapid Dry Undercoat help adhesion?

A. This undercoat paint provides excellent adhesion to a wide range of surfaces, including wood, metal, and previously painted surfaces. It forms a strong bond with the substrate, creating a solid foundation for the topcoat. Good adhesion ensures that the topcoat adheres well to the surface, leading to a longer-lasting and more durable paint finish.

Q. Is Sandtex Rapid Dry Undercoat fast drying?

A. As the name suggests, Sandtex Rapid Dry Undercoat has a fast-drying formula. This means that it dries much quicker than standard undercoat paints, allowing you to complete your painting project in less time. The rapid drying feature is particularly useful when you have a tight schedule or need to apply multiple coats within a short period.
