5.0 out of 5 stars Absolute quality 12 April 2013

I used this to prime up some aluminium / cast Iron base speaker stands.
Was worried that the paint wouldn't take to the cast Iron Base sections.
( Bought the B & W stands second hand - they were silver ) ...

Best paint I've ever used - I then used Rustoleum gloss black and clear laquer - they look stunning.

ALWAYS wear a very good quality face mask when spraying - read the manufacturers recommendations for safety.

I did 9 / 10 thin coats of each type of paint spraying around 20 / 22" from the stands - so had no runs at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bodger's delight 18 Nov 2012

This is really brilliant stuff. I have a cheap and nasty chest of drawers i want to refinish. It had the dirt and polish of ages on it and the varnish wasn't in very good nick. I used T-Class Sugar Soap Wipes on the wood, then two light coats of the surface primer and its taking paint beautifully. The primer dries in about 20 minutes, even in cold damp conditions and dries very smoothly. Its quite economical to use, I estimate I will get two coats on this small piece of funrniture and have about a third of a can left. The only thing i have against it is that it is a real struggle to remove the cap!

Having the right primer to hand is essential and this one fits the bill. Use it clean the jet and put it away 'til next time.

this primer must be one of the best ones available on the market and the finish does not require sanding before painting

Bought this for a specific job after looking at a few; you might say well primer is primer but the job was quite specialised. Their technical help, contacted before I bought the paint and primer, was first class - really helpful. I'd certainly buy from their range again.
