Product Details

Johnstone’s Quick Dry Primer Undercoat is suitable for use on interior and exterior bare timber and masonry surfaces. The water based, low odour formulation is quick drying and it provides the perfect base for Johnstone’s Quick Dry Gloss and Satin products.


  • Touch dry in just 1-2 hours
  • Perfectly primes bare wood and previously painted wood and metal surfaces
  • Use with Johnstone's Quick Dry or Hardwearing Gloss or Satin
All surfaces should be clean, dry and free from grease. Remove any loose or flaking paint. Rub down sound glossy surfaces with fine waterproof abrasive paper and rinse thoroughly to provide a key. Avoid the inhalation of dust. Wear a suitable face mask if dry sanding. Apply a suitable knotting solution to knots and resinous surfaces. Prime metal surfaces with an appropriate Johnstone’s primer. Special precautions should be taken during surface preparation of pre-1960s paint surfaces over wood and metal as they may contain harmful lead
Ensure maximum ventilation during application and drying. Stir well before use and apply by brush or roller. For best results load the brush or roller. Apply liberally and evenly for a smooth finish, avoid overspreading. Under normal conditions the paint is touch dry in 30 minutes. Allow 1-2 hours before applying a second coat if required. Do not apply when air or surface temperature is below 10ºC or in damp conditions.
Replace lid firmly after use. Remove as much product as possible from application equipment before cleaning. Clean all equipment immediately after use in in warm soapy water and rinse thoroughly.
To avoid the risk of spillage, always store and transport in a secure upright position.
Do not empty waste paint into drains or watercourses. Some local authorities have special facilities for the disposal of waste coatings.
