Our high build waterborne sealer/primer is for use on bare wood before finishing with a waterborne paint.
This primer, suitable for spray or brush application, first acts by sealing the wood and filling in all remaining scratches caused by prep-sanding. This allows the surface to be sanded to an ultra-smooth finish with 600 grit dry paper prior to painting, a smoothness which will come through in the final finish as a top quality refined surface. Sealing the wood prevents the top coat from soaking in unevenly, helping to give even coverage and depth of colour, and lowering the amount of top coat required.
Secondly, its opaque pigmented white colour covers up the grain and colour even of dark woods, giving a surface ideal for painting on to.
Waterborne primers, sealers, lacquers and paints are ideal for use where the high VOC content of cellulose and spirit based finishes are a concern, especially in the home workshop setting. Simply work in a well-ventilated area and wear a dust mask when spraying. Our waterborne finishes are specialist wood coatings designed for use on instruments and furniture. When applied correctly they give a finish of a similar thickness to nitrocellulose, while also offering easier application, faster drying times, more resistance to abrasion and chemical damage, and a stable finish that will not crack or discolour over time. Because of these advantages more and more professionals and hobbyists are switching to our waterborne lacquers for new-build instruments and pieces of furniture.
When spraying thin max 10% with water.
Interior use only.

Even sticks to the old laquer in the electronics cavity I coulnd't sand off. Great to work with and good at covering everything to make it 100% white.
Does the job

Sprays on well and covers minor scratches nicely. Had to water down slightly more that the advised 5% to get it through my spray gun, but not by much. Looks like I got away with it anyway. Would give it 5 stars, but this is the first experience of waterborne paints, so have nothing to compare to.
