Application Method

Stir Helmi Primer well before use and thin with water, if necessary. Apply by brush, roller, paint pad, or spray. Apply on large surfaces with e.g. a furniture paint roller and then level with a brush. Multi-branched synthetic brushes are best suited for the work. Prime absorbent surfaces first with a primer thinned with 5-10 % water, and sand. After 2 hours paint the surface with unthinned primer.
