Natural Impregnating Primer for Absorptive Surfaces.

Water- and dirt-repellent

If you have an absorbent surface you wish to prepare for painting without turning to harsh chemical primers, you need Auro 121 Natural Impregnating Primer for Absorbent Surfaces. This high quality all natural solvent-based primer is specially formulated to prepare absorbent surfaces for painting with Auro wall paints.

Designed to treat wood and cork surfaces exposed to normal wear and for priming absorptive surfaces prior to their treatment with AURO oil or wax products, this product can also be used on untreated clay and cotto tiles for interiors and surfaces not exposed to natural weathering. It provides a honey-coloured finish and can be tinted (up to a maximum of 20%) with Auro 150 Colour Concentrates if you require a coloured finish.

This environment-friendly, breathable, solvent-based, transparent impregnation treatment has a natural citrus fragrance and is ideal as primer for absorptive surfaces for secondary treatment with oil and wax products, and as sole treatment for wood and cork for surfaces exposed to normal stress.

ECO PACKAGING: Testers use bio degradable corn starch infill packing pieces (these are only suited to testers and very light weight items though); on larger products we either use recycled/recyclable brown paper or we’re just starting to use pulped cardboard inserts for 2.5l and 5l tins - these are recycled and can either be recycled with household cardboard, composted or several people use them as firefighters!
