Marine Undercoat Paint is a multi purpose, high build, oil based universal base coat. For use on wood, metal and painted surfaces, it offers the ability to easily change between contrasting colours. Being a solvent based undercoat gives this paint excellent adhesion as well as a high film thickness. This allows for the filling of pitted areas and then sanding back.
Marine High Build Undercoat is best applied by brush, roller or conventional and airless spray. For thinning and cleaning, use Palatine White Spirit.
Suitable surfaces include wood, ferrous metal and painted surfaces. Specially formulated marine undercoat paints are now more popular due to their specific properties.

This excellent undercoat became the base for the marine undercoat paint we manufacture in the UK. It has become widely accepted that solvent based undercoats have superior properties when applying to wood with the rich alkyd based resin providing flexibly and penetration to the surface.
