WHEN DO I USE PRIMER?
Primer is typically an off-white color. Many paints achieve their true color—and in fewer coats—when applied over this kind of primer.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF PRIMER?
When properly applied, primer has many benefits:
- Smoother, more professional look
- Blocks stains and odors
- Assures better paint adhesion
- Speeds topcoating
- Prevents peeling
- Gives true color in fewer coats
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR PRIMER TO DRY?
Most latex primers dry to the touch in 30 minutes to one hour. But for best results, don’t paint until the primer completely dries—which can take up to 3 hours, depending on temperature and humidity.
Once the primer is completely dry, it’s prime time for painting.
