Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know I have the right consistency to apply the primer kit product?
Mix the products well and when you put in the brush the product will just drip off the brush.

Do I need to primer kit the whole surface of the walls?
You can spot prime an individual area or if more than 50% of the whole wall is bad do the whole lot for a more uniform finish.

What benefits do I get by using a primer kit before applying the Walltex All Weather coating?
The primer kit product will give a brand new bonded, uniform stabilized surface. Ideal for friable flaking and uneven painted and rendered surfaces. It also keeps all the acids and alkalis from the background and gives a barrier between the surface and the new Walltex All weather coating.

I have some deep scarring and uneven painted surface on the wall will the primer kit even this out?
YES you may have to apply 2 coats in certain areas, it will give a more uniform finish. If there are any deep imperfections or bad scarring make the mix to a drier consistency by adding more powder (like a paste) and using a trowell or spatula a reasonable flat surface can be achieved.
