Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb coverage This water based acrylic undercoat covers superbly whether it be on pre painted surfaces or on bare timber. It dries in less than half an hour so you could give it two coats or open up your oil based finish whether it may be gloss eggshell satinwood and it takes to it like a dream. Highly recommended!!

Answer: 
Hello fatuma. , I would not advise this as the final coat. It is not formulated to be as such, as a consequence it wouldn't dry to a hardwearing, tough finish. You can use this as a base coat - for example painting over a dark colour - and follow up with 2 coats of an emulsion. Thanks

We don't have time to do both this week but wanted to at least do the primer. Will it still work if we don't paint the emulsion until a few weeks later or should we wait and do both at the same time? Many thanks.

Answer: 
Hello Evva. There is no reason why you can't apply the primer and wait a week until overcoating with emulsion. However it must be noted that all paints go through what is known as a 'curing time'. This relates to the time it takes for a coating to harden up following application. Typically the curing time for paints is approximately 7 days, although this can be extended depending on certain site conditions. once a coating has cured, more sanding will be required in order to allow a subsequently applied topcoat to adhere properly. Therefore, when you come to over decorate the primer, ensure that you sand the wall down a little bit more thoroughly than what you normally would. I would also suggest washing the walls down again with sugar soap in order to remove any potential surface contaminants. Thanks

Hello Wildy01. Provided the plaster is fully dry this will be fine - as a general rule allow 1 weeks drying time per 5mm of plaster applied. Once fully dry apply a coat of the Acrylic Primer Undercoat, thinned with up to 10% clean water to quench surface absorbency. Once dry apply 1 full coat. Thanks

Hello shellquay. For plasterboard this will be fine, you could thin by up to 10% clean water to help quench surface absorbency. Unfortunately it would not be suitable for laminate. Thanks

Answer: 
Hello Mollie777. Peeling paint on a recently painted wall can be as a result of several potential causes. surface contamination, powdery and breatheable coatings (for example contract paints) and trapped moisture are just a few examples as to why a paint system may begin to flake. The Leyland Trade Acrylic Primer Undercoat is an excellent product for quenching surface absorbency - for example on new plaster - and for promoting adhesion of some decorative coatings (for example an Acrylic Eggshell). However, given the several potential causes as to why your paint is flaking, I cannot say whether this product would work or not. I would suggest removing all loose and flaking material to a firm edge. Then sand and clean the surface to be painted. Once this is complete I would suggest a primer/sealer more suited for sealing powdery/porous surfaces. Thanks
