Spring is on its way, bringing new home projects. We’re here to help you make sure that your projects are done properly, from start to finish.

When it comes to painting, for the best results every time, the proper primer must be used.

Primer is essential in beginning many painting projects, so we want to make sure you’re choosing the right one, and using it effectively.

At Town Line, we carry primers for all types of projects, but we have a great all-purpose, go-to primer: Benjamin Moore’s STIX Primer.

Product Facts:

STIX is the highest quality, waterborne, acrylic urethane primer/sealer with unparalleled adhesion to the most challenging surfaces, including PVC, vinyl, plastic, glass, tile, glazed block, glossy paints, pre-coated siding, fiberglass, and galvanized metals.

It’s ideal for use on plaster, drywall, wood, and non-ferrous metals, where a low ambient or surface temperature would present a problem for conventional primers.

This product offers an extremely hard film when cured. Use it on interior and exterior surfaces and topcoat with almost any type of coating including alkyd, acrylic latex, urethane, epoxy (also two-components), and lacquer finishes.

Primer Tips:

The goal of painting is to be efficient and effective, so we want your experience priming to be the same.

  • Raw Surfaces are the only ones you need to prime. If it’s already painted, there’s a surface for paint to adhere to.
  • Cracks and Crevices can be filled in with a quick coat of primer, ensuring a nicer look to the finished wall.
  • Tint is Important to having primer work for you. The STIX primer is available in a range of colors, to offer stronger color pay off.
