Wood Knot & Resing Blocking Primer


Wood Knot & Resin Blocking Primer 5 5 6 6
Best wood knot and resin blocking primer! I bought this product, on recommendation from Farrow & Ball , after I had some staining come through paint on my newly restored ( 200yr old) front door! I did think at the time, it was a bit pricey at £20 for 750ml tin, but its certainly well worth the results! It worked! 2 years on my front door looks great! It did exactly what it was supposed to. Since then I have gone through tins of this stuff as we've replaced and painted floors and had loads of new timber. etc.. But a little does go a Long way. Very pleased- thank you Fartow and Ball!

Superb and did you know ...... Superb product and to the best of my knowledge the only water based stain blocker on the market by a heritage type brand ( ie zinsser 123 etc but they do little to match little greene and F & B for topcoats) Inshort - if you use this primer then F and B undercoat followed by 2-3 topcoats of F anB estate then you can't really get a better/ tougher finish! Superb. Use a decent brush though! September 21, 2013
Really does do what it says on the tin I used this as a primer on my garden shed before the undercoat. It goes on very smoothly and provided a good base for the undercoat. I found that an overall application (rather than just on any knots in the wood) gave the best result. July 6, 2013
Excellent A pleasure to use. Great results. Good coverage and fast drying. June 15, 2013
Amazing stuff I couldn't believe after just one coat, all the knots and resinous areas on my timber were completely covered and sealed. Since using this paint I have had no problems with the knots showing through. Very happy customer here. May 31, 2013
Great product This product is great - and really does do what it says on the tin! October 23, 2012
