MPI #   5      Primer, Alkyd/Oil for Exterior Wood
An alkyd/oil based primer for exterior wood siding and trim. This product is used for new and repainting work in residential, commercial and light industrial areas. This primer is used on woods prone to extractive bleeding, such as cedar and redwood, and must have bleeding resistance when applied to dry (less than 15% moisture content) wood substrates. Finish coatings, used over this primer include latex, alkyd and alkyd/oil based paints. The straight alkyd products are faster drying than the oil/alkyd type primer.  Must be mildew resistant. Application methods will include using brushes, rollers, and airless and conventional spray equipment.
