Valspar® New Construction Primer

  • Ideal for new drywall

Valspar® New Construction Primer is specially designed to equalize the surface texture differences between sanded tape joints and new drywall. The result is an extremely uniform finish coat appearance. Formulated for use by professional painters in residential, commercial, institutional and industrial applications, this primer provides an excellent base coat for latex or oil-based paints. It is ideal for airless spray application.
Where To Use

Ideal for new drywall. Apply to wallboard, drywall, tape joints, walls and under latex or oil-base paint.

One gallon of paint will cover 350-400 square feet, depending upon surface porosity.

Preparing Your Surfaces

New Drywall and Wallboard: Tape joints should be sanded smooth and even with the drywall or wallboard. Using a damp cloth or sponge, wipe tape joints and all wallboard surfaces to remove all sanding dust. Be sure to remove all chalky residue before priming. Allow to dry, then prime. For previously painted surfaces remove all dirt, dust, grease and oils by using a non-residue cleaner to clean the surface. Scrape off any loose, cracked or peeling paint. Patch cracks and nail holes. Sand smooth, then spot prime.
