      • Better than Sherwin-Williams High end exterior alkyd primers

      Hands-down one of the best oil based primers I have used in every category except ease of use/application (even in this category it still did much better than many comparable primers). I used it to prime rough-cut Cedar slats on an intricate fence, wrought iron railing's, aluminum windows , rusted steel brackets, galvanized corner flashing. The adhesion is top rate, it's stain blocking is simply amazing, it's look when dried has been mistaken for a top coat, it will bridge uneven surfaces and help minimize the unwanted gaps and small errors. For its price it can't be beat as an all-around great primer. Addressing the application issues: this stuff becomes thick very quickly so you won't get the amount of coverage you normally expect from a gallon and in warmer weather's back rolling is like trying to roll Elmers glue. However if you can overcome this characteristic of the primer, you will be left with a great surface for applying your top coat. In addition I've never had any problems with other manufacturers paint over this or bad reactions when applying this. I have five years of full-time experience with four out of five of them spent on exterior work for the months of May - Sept. **Tips SHAKE/BLEND VERY WELL then scrape bottom with stir stick then blend again (quick). Keep covered when not using your brush/roller or in high temps and use a slightly smaller pail to reduce the surface area of primer (help slow solvent evaporation).

      Pros Very Adhesive, Even Application, High Quality of Material, Easy Instructions, Good Coverage, Easy to Clean, Good Protection, Looks Great, Dries Quickly Cons becomes thick quickly, rolls out like glue
