Product Description

Universal Multi Surface Primer is a solvent based primer that can be applied to variety of surfaces. It is designed for use on surfaces that can have difficulty with adhesion when using standard paints, such as tiles and plastics. The increased adhesion strength of this primer allows it to be applied to these surfaces without issue.

Alongside more difficult surfaces, the primer can also be used on wood, metal and most other surfaces, making it ideal for painting multiple different surfaces in a short space of time. Once primed, surfaces can be painted with one of our range of solvent based topcoats. These include our Cupboard Paint, Wood Paint, Radiator Paint and more!

At Palatine Paints, we manufacture our own paints rather that buying them from a supplier. This means we have full knowledge of our coatings and their use. If you have any questions about surface compatibility, preparation, application or another topic, please get in touch. You can contact our team by phone and web chat during office hours, and email at any time.

When applying to a plastic surface, we would always recommend a patch test before application. We are unable to test this primer on every type of plastic available and there may be some that are not compatible.

Please note: The multi surface primer colours shown here are only a guide. This is due to the fact that every computer monitor has a different capability to display colours. In addition, everyone sees these colours differently.

Colours Available: White, Grey, Red

Pack Sizes: 1 Litre, 2.5 Litre, 5 Litre

Coverage / Drying Times:

Surface Dry: 3 hours

Hard Dry: 24 hours

Overcoat: after 16 hours
Keep coated areas dry for a minimum of 24 hours following application.
Please note, drying times will be extended at low temperatures. Do not apply when ambient temperature falls below 10ºC

Theoretical Coverage: 12 – 14m² per litre.

(Coverage rate can be affected by such variables as type and condition of substrate, type of application equipment and individual method of application.)


On previously painted surfaces, ensure it is sound and non-flaking.

Stir the primer with a drill stirrer or wooden baton at least 2” wide. Continue to stir during application to avoid thickening of the product.


Best results are obtained in warm (minimum 10°C), dry conditions.

Apply by brush, roller or spray and work well into the surface. Avoid applying too thickly to avoid delaying drying times. The topcoat can be applied as soon as the primer is dry, usually after 12-24 hours, and should be applied within 5 days. If more than 5 days elapse, the surface should be lightly abraded before the topcoat is applied.

Thinning and Cleaning: Use Palatine White Spirit.

If using more than one batch of the same colour, intermix before use

Please note: The colours on the product listings are only given as a guide. This is due to the fact that every computer monitor has a different capability to display colours. In addition, everyone sees these colours differently. Always carry out a test patch (approximately 100x100mm) before full application
to ensure compatibility with previous coatings and the substrate, and to ensure the colour achieved meets your requirements. Failure to do so will result in a product refund claim not being accepted
