Valspar Exterior Latex Primer is the ideal prime coat under all oil and latex house paints. It is formulated with 100% acrylic resin for excellent adhesion, long-lasting protection and resistance to peeling and blistering. Primer blocks tannin stains on redwood and cedar and gives a mildew resistant coating.
Where To Use

Use on properly prepared exterior surfaces including bare wood, previously painted wood siding and trim, brick, concrete, cement, stucco, non-rusted galvanized gutters and downspouts. Bare redwood and cedar may require an additional coat to control severe staining areas. DO NOT USE over hardboard siding or gummy pine; use an exterior oil primer for these surfaces.

Smooth surface: 33-41 sq. m. per litre of primer.

Preparing Your Surfaces

Clean and dry surface thoroughly, removing all mildew, dirt, dust, rust and grease. Bare Wood: Remove sap and clean knotty.


If you scrape, sand, or remove old paint, you may release lead dust. LEAD IS TOXIC. EXPOSURE TO LEAD DUST CAN CAUSE SERIOUS ILLNESS, SUCH AS BRAIN DAMAGE, ESPECIALLY IN CHILDREN. PREGNANT WOMEN SHOULD ALSO AVOID EXPOSURE. Wear a NIOSH-approved respirator to control lead exposure. Clean up carefully with a HEPA vacuum and a wet mop.
