DESCRIPTION: Safecoat New Wallboard Primecoat HPV is a premium quality, fast curing, flat finish primer specially formulated to provide a superior prime coat over interior surfaces such as new gypsum wallboard and textured sheetrock. It equalizes the absorption rate of topcoat paints over a variety of surfaces with different porosities, and helps to eliminate decorating problems over textured sheetrock and tape joints on wallboard.
USE ON: New wallboard and textured sheetrock. May also be used on specialty porous and absorptive materials like Gridcore®, certain ceiling tiles, etc.
THINNING: May be thinned with up to 1 gallon water per 5 gallons Primecoat HPV for easier application. For heavier textured walls, do not over thin. Over thinning will reduce the effectiveness of the product at filling surface voids.
