Rated 5 out of 5 by FairyGodmother from Does what it needs to do Bought this to act as an undercoat on a radiator, before painting with F&B paint, and it's done exactly what was needed. Went on easily, easy to paint with, didn't drip. Only negative point is that the tin was very difficult to open the 2nd time I used it. The design of the lid & the rim of the small sized tin now seem to be a bit flimsy, as does the metal that the tin is now made out of - I'm sure that F&B tins neveer used to be like this. As a result the lid got gummed up with the paint. Best thing to do is to probably decant the paint left over at the end of the job if you want to be able to use it a 2nd time, either that or the tin designers need to do a re-think on the tin/lid design for the small sized tins.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jane72 from excellent product This primer is full bodied and gives really good coverage. We used it over black paint. One coat and two topcoats of hardwicke white gave really good coverage. One thing to be careful of is the instruction to apply thickly and not brush out to much which can lead to a slightly uneven finish. We used this on a steel faced composite door and it really looks great just like wood.
