Not sure whether you need to use a primer or undercoat? Take a look at our blog section and see our two primer features. Suitable for overcoating after 2 hours. Because it’s water based, brushes and rollers can be cleaned with water.

Coverage / Drying Times:

Surface Dry: 30 Minutes.

Overcoat: after 2 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.

For cleaning use clean water.

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

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


Proper surface preparation is essential for the success of any protective coating system. Before you begin ensure the area is free from any dust, oil, grease, old coatings and surface contaminants.

Ideal quick drying base coat beneath Palatine’s selected Top Coats.
Rub down previously gloss painted surfaces with fine waterproof abrasive paper and rinse thoroughly.


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

Mix thoroughly for approximately 2 minutes using a drill stirrer. A wooden batten at least 25mm wide is also ideal.
Apply an even coat using a brush, short to medium pile roller on smooth surfaces.
For spray application by either airless or conventional spray a dilution ration of no more than 10% is recommended with clean water by volume.
A second coat can be applied at full strength.  This will prolong the life and performance of the coating.
For application onto new wooden surfaces, a minimum of two coats is recommended.

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. Sample pots are available to order upon request. 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.
