Sealers & Primers
We carry a range of epoxy sealers, base coats, undercoats, primers, clear sealers and waxes. We provide oil-based, epoxy-based and water-based sealers or undercoats.
We have galvanised iron primers, along with timber and metal primers. Primers are ideal for use when painting over surfaces that are stained from water damage or mildew. Without the primer, you run the risk of your new paint having variations in colour or failing to stick at all. Primers are good when covering a dark surface. A white primer will help reduce the number of coats of light paint over a dark surface.
Sealers are a type of primer and should be applied before a primer. In some cases they can replace the primer. A sealer is ideal for porous surfaces such as old concrete tiles. Once applied they will aid in ensuring a more uniform gloss level for finishing coats.
Undercoats are painted over sealers or primers and help even out small imperfections and provide an effective barrier stopping moisture seeping to the substrate. This is especially important for steel products.
Marine & Industrial Paints
Our range of marine paints and varnishes can help fight the damaging combination of the sun's rays and salt water.
