Resene Acrylic Undercoat is an easy brushing, quick, hard drying undercoat with exceptional flow and sanding characteristics. While specifically designed for maximum benefit under acrylic enamels, such as Resene Enamacryl (see Data Sheet D309) and Resene Lustacryl (see Data Sheet D310), Resene Acrylic Undercoat tinted to the correct colour is ideal for use under a wide range of waterborne and solventborne topcoats to improve the hiding of the paint system.
Excellent adhesion to substrates including old paint
Available in colours suitable for use under Resene Total Colour System colours to facilitate perfect hiding and finish
Excellent flow and sanding properties
Outstanding durability maintaining flexibility for the life of the system
Designed with a low sheen that allows exceptional enamel hold-out
Suitable for overcoating with most finishing systems
Do not apply at temperatures below 10°C or when it is liable to drop below 10°C during the drying period.
Not designed as a first coat over metal surfaces or weak powdery surfaces. Exposed bare or cracked timber usually accumulates windblown salt. Before using a totally waterborne system, this salt must be removed by prolonged washing with freshwater. Alternatively, use a solventborne undercoat.
