Applying Monocel Timber Effects Primer


1. Preparation

  • All surfaces to be coated must be clean, dry and free of oil, grease or dirt.
  • Any existing coating must be checked for good adhesion. Any loosely adhered coating must be removed.
  • All nail holes should be filled with a water-based filler. Sand the filler back prior to coating.

2. Application

  • Stir well before and during use with a broad flat paddle.
  • Apply one coat with a good quality dry brush.
  • Brisk, uniform application is essential to maintain a wet edge, especially in hot weather.

  • GP Primer Sealer is quick drying.
  • Drying time is 1hr depending on temperature, humidity and other weather conditions.
  • Apply a second coat of GP Primer and allow to dry before using Bondall’s Timber Effects.


Up to 8 square metres per litre depending on the porosity and application technique.

Thinning is not usually required except on hot days when 50ml of Hot Weather Thinner per one litre is recommended.
