VIVILON Porous Primer ™
What it is:
Porous Primer is a penetrating primer coat, required when applying VIVILON™ top coat over any porous substrate. This clear, low solids coating is formulated for optimum ease of penetration deep into and absorbtion by the open pores of the substrate. This provides for the important sealing off of the surface porosity and provides the necessary solid foundation for top coating with VIVILON™.
Where is it used:

Acting almost like a "sanding sealer", Porous Primer prepares surfaces like brick, stucco, EIFS, unglazed tile, concrete, unpainted wood and stone for effective, long lasting restorative sealing and protection. For some very porous surfaces, a second coat of primer may be required.
