Plascon Plaster Primer

Plascon Plaster Primer is a solvent based primer for gypsum and masonry surfaces. It acts as a good barrier between the new alkaline plaster and the painted topcoats. It can also be used as a binding agent for too soft or too powdery plaster, as well as a sealer on incredibly porous surfaces. It has a matt appearance with a spread rate of 8 m²/ℓ and comes in white. (Take note spreading rate may differ due to the condition of the surfaces being primed).plaster-primer
