AFM Safecoat Transitional Primer
Safecoat Transitional Primer is a premium quality, waterbased, flat finish universal primer specifically formulated to solve difficult application problems without the use of toxic and malodorous chemicals.
Because it has an extremely tight and efficient polymer network, it is when properly applied particularly well suited for transitioning from existing oil based painted surfaces to waterbased coatings. It is when properly applied useful as a stain blocker for many of the knot holes, water soluble stains and oils, tannins and terpenes in wood which can "bleed through" to the surface upon the application of traditional waterbased primers.
Use on: Most interior and exterior surfaces: walls, ceilings, wood and wood trim, fully cured plaster, stucco, masonry and drywall.
- Extremely low Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) (12 grams/liter)
- No exempted solvents, acetone, ammonia, crystalline silica, ethylene glycol, formaldehyde, formaldehyde precursors (chemicals that create formaldehyde once they enter the atmosphere), odor masking agents, heavy metals, or other known toxic materials or suspected carcinogens.
- Additionally, the colorants we use in our paints have no VOCs nor Alkylphenol Ethoxylates (APE), which are surfactants (detergents) which can be oestrogenic (hormone disrupting) and bioaccumulative in the environment (meaning they don't break down and increase concentration up the food chain).
- Products are structured to literally create a "safe coat," with a unique molecular formulation designed to seal surfaces, thus reducing "offgassing," or the emission of toxins into your environment.
- Naturally low in odor
- SCS Certified for Indoor Advantage Gold
Quart: Approximately 75-87 square feet per coat.
Gallon: Approximately 300-350 square feet per coat.
Coverage depends on method of application and surface texture and porosity.
One full coat is generally sufficient for most jobs, such as for transitioning from oil based surfaces to waterbased coatings. Some stains may require two coats for complete blocking; the primer may absorb the stain into itself on the first coat, where it will be "locked up" and blocked by the second.
