The Tikkurila Intact Primer is a Matt finish, low odour waterborne quick-drying water-borne universal adhesion primer for use on interior woodwork. Suitable as primer and intermediate coat for both new and previously painted surfaces. Intact Primer adheres well to surfaces such as melamine, fiberglass, industrial paint (non-PVDF) surfaces, hard PVC, tile, aluminum, galvanized sheet and alkyd and catalyst painted surfaces.
It provides good grain-filling properties.
Intact Primer is suitable for:
- Interior woodwork
- Kitchen Cabinetry
Preparation and Application.
For best results with Intact Primer, surfaces must be clean, dry, and free from grease, dirt, oil, wax, rust, loose material and surface contamination.
Use Tikkurila cleaning agents and mould removal solutions. Treat knots and resinous areas with Knotting Lacquer.
Use a good quality wood filler for filling cracks, nail holes, blemishes, etc.
Ensure that existing painted and filled surfaces are thoroughly sanded smooth.
Note: Discoloration of paint, especially noticeable within light colours, may occur over knots and resinous areas present in the wood. Particular attention with regards to preparation should be given to wood such as Oak, Teak, Cedar, Douglas Fir, Mahogany and Idigbo, etc., which contain oil and water-soluble tannin which may impair the drying, hardening or adhesion of surface coatings and discolour the surface of same and, therefore, thorough degreasing prior to the application of Intact Primer is essential.
