Premium-quality, fast-curing, low VOC primer for new wallboard
New Wallboard Primecoat HPV is specially formulated to provide a superior prime coat on interior surfaces such as new gypsum wallboard (sheetrock) and textured wallboard.
HPV stands for High Pigment Volume, which means it is one thick primer.
Primecoat HPV solves finishing problems such as "telegraphing" or "joint-banding" by equalizing porosity and texture; it fills voids in the surface of building materials so that top coats cover more evenly.
Why we like it
This is a thick, low-odor primer that painters love because it dries quickly, covers well and has no odor at all once dry.
Features & benefits
Easy-to-use — fast-drying; water cleanup
Solves finishing problems — makes it easier to get a uniform, smooth wall
Protects indoor air quality — seals in chemical off-gassing; low-odor, and odorless when dried
Non-toxic — no formaldehyde, ammonia, crystalline silica, ethylene glycol, mildewcides, fungicides, exempt solvents or aromatic hydrocarbons commonly used in paint
Alert: This is for new sheetrock only, not for use on other surfaces. If using Primecoat HPV to seal in off-gassing of toxic chemicals, please call us at 800.405.0222 for special instructions before using.
