BasePrime is a quick-drying, oil-based primer for use on wooden floors in commercial, residential or sports areas.
Excellent for wooden floors where water-based primers cannot be used due to poor adhesion, for example exotic and oily timbers. The primer is also recommended for renovating dark coloured, patterned floors.
BasePrime gives the floor more depth of colour and should only be used directly on bare wood.
Protective coats with one of Junckers' water-based or oil-based floor lacquers must be applied after priming.
For professional use only.
