This water-based, solvent-free stain-block primer is highly effective and has a number of uses for concealing and blocking out difficult stains such as rusted metal, rust staining, tannin staining from hardwoods such as oak and mahogany, water staining on (for example) plaster walls & ceilings, and many other "difficult to get rid of" stains. However, this product will not block oily or tarry stains, such as those from coal fires (chimney breast) or asphalt. This is the preferred Primer for bare Iron and Steel.
NOTE: Not ideal for exterior bare cast iron - ask for advice.

|Preparation||Surfaces should be clean, dry, sound, and free from dirt, dust, grease, and loose or flaking material. Clean stubborn areas with mild detergent. Rinse and dry thoroughly before painting. Soft or crumbly substrates should be pre-treated.|
|Application and Clean Up||Under most conditions thinning is not necessary. Stir gently before and during use. Intermix if using multiple containers to ensure color uniformity. Generally only requires one coat. Sand lightly between coats as this product may raise the grain of the wood. Normally dries to the touch in one hour. Allow four hours before sanding or painting. Can be applied using a good quality synthetic brush; or rolled using a shed resistant 1/4"-3/8" roller cover. Avoid applying below 50oF.|
