Whitsons Primer | Superior Adhesion For Difficult Surfaces


Whitson's Superior Adhesion Primer is whats known as a  bridging primer. Designed to allow you to apply water based paints over problem surfaces  such as factory finishes, cellulose lacquers, polyurethane varnishes, tiles, melamine and plastic.

These surfaces need extra prep before painting with any furniture paints to ensure a great long lasting finish. Whitson Primer is water based and formulated
using a high-quality alkyd derived from soya, which a natural ingredient with a very mild odour.

This primer is designed to grab and bridge between the surface and the furniture paint for absolute maximum staying power, ideal for kitchen cabinets and other high usage areas. 


*Please note*

Whitsons primer is not suitable for bare  or 'new' wood and is not classed as a stain blocking primer but you may notice some element of stain blocking on minor problems.

For stain blocking please order this primer: Zinsser B.I.N Aerosol 


Remove all loose or flaking material.

Ensure the surface is dry and free from dirt, grease and other contaminants.

As a bridging primer, this product is designed to only be used on existing sealed or painted surfaces.


Stir well before use.

Do not apply in very humid conditions or where temperatures are below 5'C or above 30'C

Suitable for application by brush, roller, and spray. 

Ensure that the paint is applied in a uniform coat and spread at a film thickness that yields a coverage rate of approx 10m2 per litre.
