Wall Primers & Thinners Market: Overview

Wall primers & thinners are used for providing suitable surface for the application of paint coatings. These can be used in building & construction applications such as plastered walls, asbestos, concrete, and brick work. Benefits of using wall primers & thinners include easy brushing, excellent covering, alkali resistance, quick drying, and good sealing. Primers can be used as sealer, which produces excellent non-porous finish on applied topcoats. Primers are also known as undercoats. These are applied on materials before painting. Priming on a surface helps improving paint durability, as it provides additional protection for the material that is being painted. Wall primers consists of components such as synthetic resins, solvents, and additive agents. Thinners are solvents which are used to thin oil-based paints or clean up after their use. Paint thinners often include mineral spirits, acetone, turpentine, naphtha, toluene, methyl ethyl ketone, and dimethylformamide.
