Quartz Primer is a premium-quality, water-based, 100% acrylic, quick-drying textured primer. It is specially formulated to be the only primer used underneath all Meoded interior and exterior decorative plasters. Plasters are much heavier than paints, and need a primer with both high adhesion and the precise texture required to hold the plaster in place, both while working on the project and after it is completed.
The texture in Quartz Primer provides a uniform surface that speeds up the plaster application by drawing the plaster more consistently from the trowel.
Available in 1 quart, 1 gallon, and 4.25 gallons containers.
We care about the environment, therefore All MEODED PAINTS products are ECO Friendly!
- All surfaces must be clean and free from wax, grease, oil, dirt, chalk, dust, mildew, etc., and not have any loose or peeling paint.
- Interior New Surfaces: Prime the substrate with a PVA primer and let fully dry.
- Interior and Exterior Existing Surfaces: Any glossy surfaces must be lightly sanded, dusted, then primed with a multi-purpose primer and let fully dry. Next, apply one coat of Quartz Primer, diluted with 30% water, and let it fully dry. Preparation of flat, non-glossy surfaces requires only the application of diluted Quartz Primer.
- Exterior Brown Coat: The surface should first be pressure washed to clean. When the surface is fully dry, apply Quartz Primer diluted up to 50% by water. Let dry for a minimum of 3 to 5 hours. Over a brown coat, use three (3) thin coats to achieve a smooth, uniform surface.
Meoded Quartz Primer is formulated to be diluted with water. For interior and exterior surfaces, dilute by 30%; for brown coats, dilute up to 50%. The primer can be brushed, rolled, or spray applied. Apply only when the surface and air temperatures are between 50°F and 95°F. Do not apply under high humidity or if rain is expected within 24 hours. Use a universal primer first when going over oil-based paint.
