Valspar® Latex Exterior Primer
  • 100% acrylic resin
  • Superior adhesion
  • Seals surface
  • Extends life of top coat
  • Gives a mildew-resistant coating
  • Low odor, low VOC
Valspar® Latex Exterior Primer is the ideal prime coat for use under oil-based and latex house paints. This primer delivers excellent adhesion and long-lasting protection as it resists peeling and blistering; it also blocks tannin stains on redwood and cedar.
Where To Use

Use on properly prepared exterior surfaces, including bare wood, previously painted wood siding and trim, brick, concrete, cement, stucco, non-rusted galvanized gutters and downspouts. Bare redwood and cedar may require an additional coat to control severe staining areas. DO NOT USE over hardboard siding or gummy pine; use an exterior oil primer for these surfaces.

Covers up to 400 square feet per gallon over painted or primed surfaces, less over rough or porous surfaces. Thin only for spray application with up to 8 ounces of water per gallon.
