Prime and paint properly

Whether wood, plastic, iron, steel, non-ferrous metals or stable old paintwork - every surface needs a base so that the paint can develop its full potential. Here is information on how to properly prime and paint different materials.

Find the right primer

Those who make the right decision when it comes to priming have many advantages. Who creates a good basis:

  • improves adhesion
  • improves opacity
  • saves a top coat
  • facilitates processing

Here is a practical overview:

Underground primer
aluminum Acrylic multi-base
the low-pollutant universal primer.
Wood
copper
paintable plastics
Mineral substrates
zinc
non-rustproof metals Anti-rust primer
reliably protects iron and steel from corrosion.
copper
steel
Wood Undercoat
prevents the penetration of wood constituents, e.g. B. dark wood and knotholes.
MDF board

Choose the color of the primer

Not only the substrate, but also the desired color shade of the final coat is decisive for the choice of the primer. Primers are available in white, gray and beige - which pre-tint is best suited for which paint is indicated on the lid of the colored paint.

With the right pre-tinting you will achieve perfect results:

Pre-tinted primer

1 x prime and 1 x varnish => perfect result
(using the example of RAL 3000 fire red)

Conventional primer

1 x priming and 1 x painting => no color accuracy
(using the example of RAL 3000 fire red)

without primer

Paint twice => low opacity, poor color result
(using the example of RAL 3000 fire red)
