New Wallboard Primecoat (formerly known as 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.
This is super opaque, which means it is one thick primer.
Primecoat 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.
NOTE: Don't panic. When you first open the can this may appear chunky like soft tofu, but it rolls out beautifully and nothing is wrong. It's just very thick and covers nicely.
Alert: This is for new sheetrock only, not for use on other surfaces. If using Primecoat to seal in off-gassing of toxic chemicals, please call us at 800.405.0222 for special instructions before using.
NOTE: Do not use Safecoat paint over Sherwin Williams Promar 200 Zero VOC paint.
