Tintable Exterior Primer
  • Accurate final colour in fewer coats
  • Colours look crisp, bright, bold
  • Uniform final appearance
  • Superior hiding primer
  • Low odour, low VOC
  • Saves time and money
Valspar Tintable Colour Primer is the perfect beginning for deep, dark coloured topcoats. This grey tinted premium quality primer promotes better hiding and truest colour appearance. You'll use fewer coats of paint. Many bold paint colours look truest when applied over one of 5 shades of grey. Colour Primer also promotes better touch up and uniform colour, eliminating streaks.
Where To Use

Use tintable primer on properly prepared interior and exterior surfaces including bare or previously painted drywall, masonry, concrete, cured plaster, wood, and non-rusted galvanized metal, gutters and downspouts.

Four litres of paint will cover up to 37 sq m depending on surface porosity. For spraying, thin only with 250 ml of water per litre of paint.
Paint Calculator

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. Before you start, find out how to protect yourself and your family by contacting the Canadian Association for Environmental Analytical Laboratories at (613) 233-5300 or log onto the Health Canada website.
