The solvent-based formulation offers superior adhesion to wooden surfaces and allows it to flex with the natural movement of the wood helping to prevent and alleviate flaking and cracking.

Preparation

Always ensure the surface is clean, dry and free from anything that may affect adhesion.

  • Greyed or weathered wood will need to be sanded back to a clean and smooth surface.
  • Previously painted surfaces need to be cleaned and sanded to offer a key.
Application

We always recommend performing a test patch to the surface to be decorated to ensure you are happy with the finished results.

  • Stir well and apply using a brush or roller.
  • Apply evenly and liberally without overspreading.
  • If more than one coat is required allow to dry for 16 hours between applications.

Do not apply when temperatures are likely to fall below 8°C or when relative humidity is above 80% during the application or drying period.

FAQ's

Q. Why is Sandtex Trade Flexible Primer Undercoat flexible?

A. The "flexible" aspect of this primer undercoat refers to its ability to expand and contract with the surface as temperature and humidity fluctuate. This flexibility helps prevent cracking, flaking, and peeling of the paint over time, especially on exterior surfaces exposed to the elements.

Q. Does Sandtex Trade Flexible Primer Undercoat improve adhesion?

A. This primer undercoat has excellent adhesion properties, allowing it to bond well to a variety of surfaces, including wood, metal, and previously painted substrates. It creates a strong foundation for the topcoat to adhere to, ensuring long-lasting paint durability.
