Applying Manns Extra Tough Primer over water-based stains
Care should be taken when applying this product over water-based wood stains. For the first coat of primer, apply gently with a brush or roller, in the direction of the wood grain, with just 1 or 2 strokes. Avoid heavy brushing or rolling in multiple directions as this may dislodge or drag the stain. Ones the first coat of primer has fully dried, there is no longer a concern with disturbing the stain. This is not an issue when applying water-based primers or varnishes over solvent-based stains.
Brushes and equipment should be cleaned immediately after use with warm, soapy water and wiped dry with a cloth.
