Montana PRIMER enables excellent adhesion and further coating of synthetic, nitro-combination or acrylic spray paints. Montana offers different primers for application on different surfaces that need to be pre-treated such as plastic, metal and styrofoam. The Universal Primer also works on leather, cardboards, wood and many other materials. After the Primers have been applied you can work with Montana spray paints on the pre-treated ground. Use primers for efficient and more permanent results. Easy to apply, sand and re-coat. For indoor and outdoor applications (wearing a respirator mask is recommended). Cans which are not empty should be disposed of as “special refuse”.

USE: Apply primer in several thin layers spraying before the previous coat is fully dry, but with 1 or 2 minutes between each pass. Further coats might require a drying time of 24 hours or more depending on substrate. Always test spray on a non-visible area to check compatibility of lacquer or paint.
