When we talk of Primers that are applied before the paint work, what comes to mind are the Acrylic Primers. However, since the last few years, White Cement-based Primers are gaining popularity amongst the construction fraternity due to their technical benefits.
Concrete surfaces whether of RCC or Plastered have micro pores. Applying the white cement-based primer over the surface before painting or before the final coating, brings many advantages as these pores get filled with the white cement’s fine particles present in the primer. As a result, the surface becomes more intact and less absorbent, and enables greater coverage of the paint when it is applied over it.
