Crown Undercoat is suitable for use on wood, metal, chipboard, hardboard and plywood, and is ideal for use with Crown Solo One Coat Gloss and Crown Solo One Coat Satin paints.

Ensure that surfaces to be undercoated are clean, dry and free from surface contaminates such as grease, dust and dirt.

  1. If necessary, move or cover furniture first
  2. Previously painted surfaces should be thoroughly abraded with sandpaper to provide a sound key for the undercoat
  3. Remove all traces of sanding dust with a vacuum or damp lint-free cloth

Always do a small test area before starting any project to assess compatibility and consistency of the finish. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on the tin at all times.

Stir thoroughly before and periodically during use to ensure a consistent finish.

  1. For the best results, apply Crown Undercoat using a good quality synthetic brush
  2. Load brush generously and apply evenly, in the direction of the wood grain
  3. In warm conditions, paint can dry very rapidly, so over-brushing should be avoided to prevent brush marks appearing in the finish
  4. Apply a second coat if required, leaving 16 hours between coats
  5. Allow 16 hours to fully dry before applying a top coat

Once dry, a top coat of Crown Solo One Coat Gloss or Crown Solo One Coat Satin can be applied.

Easy to use, stays white longer than most paints and easy to clean by Mrs Dorothy Essen

this paint was arrived within 3 days of ordering. It was securely wrapped. A paint I have used for 30 years but now it is water based making cleaning brushes so much easier and quicker. It also dries very quickly and leaves no smell. 10 out of 10.
