Wood Floor Primer & Undercoat Farrow & Ball

Wood Floor Primer & Undercoat Farrow & Ball: this primer and undercoat provides a durable and flexible foundation for interior bare or previously painted wood. Offers excellent adhesion and promotes a long lasting finish.

Available Tin Sizes:
750ml, 2.5 litre and 5 litre tins, in four colours (White & Light Tones, Mid Tones, Red & Warm Tones and Dark Tones) designed to match the chosen top coat colour.

Product Overview:
This primer and undercoat provides a durable and flexible foundation for interior bare or previously painted wood.
Offers excellent adhesion and promotes a long lasting finish.

Knotty or Resinous Wood Preparation:
Heat the knot to draw out any excess resin (we recommend using a hot air paint stripper). Scrape off any residue resin, and then thoroughly clean the area with white or methylated spirit. Allow the area to dry thoroughly before continuing. Patch prime any knotty or resinous areas with Farrow & Ball Wood Knot & Resin Blocking Primer. Apply Farrow & Ball Interior Wood Primer & Undercoat in the correct colour tone for your top coat. Allow a minimum of 4 hours drying time between coats.
Apply two coats of your chosen Farrow & Ball finish, allowing the correct drying time between coats.

New and Unpainted Interior Wood (Not Floors) Preparation:
Ensure all surfaces are sound, clean, dry and free from dirt, grease and other contamination.
Fill any cracks, holes and open joints with an appropriate filler.
To improve the paint’s adhesion, lightly sand the surface.
Patch prime any knotty or resinous areas with Farrow & Ball Wood Knot & Resin Blocking Primer.
Apply a diluted coat of Farrow & Ball Interior Wood Primer & Undercoat (20 % water) in the correct colour tone for your top coat, followed by one full (undiluted) coat. Allow a minimum of 4 hours drying time between coats.
Apply two coats of your chosen Farrow & Ball finish, allowing the correct drying time between coats.

Previously Painted Interior Wood (Not Floors) Preparation:
Ensure all surfaces are sound, clean, dry and free from dirt, grease and other contamination.
Remove any areas of old paint which are peeling or blistering as flaking or peeling can occur if you paint over weak paint layers. Blend and ‘feather’ the edges of areas of old paint, as this helps to smooth out the surface.
Fill any cracks, holes and open joints with an appropriate filler.
Lightly sand the surface to improve paint adhesion.
Patch prime any bare knotty or resinous areas with Farrow & Ball Wood Knot & Resin Blocking Primer.
Apply one coat of Farrow & Ball Interior Wood Primer & Undercoat, in the correct colour tone for your top coat (and allowing a minimum of 4 hours drying time between coats). Then apply two coats of your chosen Farrow & Ball finish, allowing the correct drying time between coats.

Waxed or Highly Polished Surface Preparation:
If you are painting onto previously waxed or highly polished surfaces, you will need to remove the existing coating of treatment by sanding back prior to painting.
We recommend testing a small area as Farrow & Ball paints may not be compatible with some waxes and polishes.

Painting Interior Brickwork:
Interior brickwork which is powdery, flaky or unstable should first be sealed using one coat of Farrow & Ball Masonry & Plaster Stabilising Primer.
The following Farrow & Ball finishes may be applied to interior brickwork:
For Full Gloss, Estate®Eggshell and Exterior Eggshell - Apply an undiluted coat of Farrow & Ball Interior Wood Primer & Undercoat in the correct colour tone for your top coat (and allowing a minimum of 4 hours drying time
between coats) followed by 2 coats of your chosen top coat (once again allowing a minimum of 4 hours drying time between coats).

How to Apply Paint to Trim by Brush:
By ‘trim’ we mean: skirting boards, picture rails, dado rails, doors, door frames and architraves, interior window sills and window frames (providing they aren’t plastic).
Farrow & Ball paints are water borne, and unlike solvent borne paints, water borne paint is more resistant to sagging and you will achieve the best finish by painting a thicker coat.
For best results use a quality fine-tipped synthetic bristled paint brush (e.g. Farrow & Ball Paint Brush). Load the brush well and apply a generous first coat.
Brushing first in a vertical direction then in a horizontal direction until an even coating has been applied.
Finish by 'laying off' the paint in one direction using light pressure, with the brush held at an angle of approximately 30°. Do not “overwork” the paint or attempt to brush it out in thin even coats as you would a traditional solvent borne paint as this may create excess brush marks.
Allow to dry completely (for a minimum of 4 hours) before applying a second coat following the same technique as before.

How to Apply Paint to Trim by Roller:
By ‘trim’ we mean: skirting boards, picture rails, dado rails, doors, door frames and architraves, interior window sills and window frames (providing they aren’t plastic).
This paint finish can also be applied using a Medium Pile Woven Polyester Roller. This will provide a good finish with minimal stippling and is a quick method of application. However, where an optimum finish is required, we would recommend brush application using a Farrow & Ball fine-tipped, synthetic bristled brush.

Application Information:
Do not paint in temperatures below 10°C or excessive heat above 30°C.
