1-Shot Primers

Proper surface preparation is the key to any successful paint application, especially outdoors. Using 1-Shot Primers is the first step in achieving optimum results. These professional-quality primers are formulated to provide a stable, durable basecoat on a wide range of surfaces commonly used by sign painters. They offer ultimate adhesion when used in combination with 1-Shot Lettering Enamels, along with the convenience of soap-and-water cleanup.

1-Shot Chromatic Universal White Primer — This single-component, rapid-drying primer is formulated to adhere to virtually all substrates including cold or hot rolled steel, aluminum, wood, vinyl, rigid foam, and many plastics. It acts as a barrier coat and improves the adhesion and dry characteristics of oil-based topcoats when applied to flexible vinyl substrates. Overall, this primer exhibits excellent flexibility and ultraviolet resistance.

1-Shot Vinyl Primer — This waterbased primer is specifically designed for vinyl surfaces and other rigid synthetic substrates that are not receptive to enamel paint, including ABS plastics, corrugated styrene, expanded PVC, and most PVC vinyl films. Milky when applied, it dries clear and is generally ready for overpainting within 30-40 minutes.
