The Resincoat Metal and Wood Primer provides a durable, clear finish to prepare metal or wood surfaces for resin paint application. It is commonly used for sealing wood flooring or metal steps. This primer forms a protective barrier, ensuring longevity and resistance to wear and tear, even in high-traffic areas. Its transparent dry film allows the natural beauty of the material to shine through. Whether applied to wood or metal, it fortifies while preserving aesthetics.

This primer is particularly beneficial for safeguarding wooden floors from moisture and environmental factors, enhancing their lifespan. It also serves as a reliable shield for metal steps, preventing corrosion and prolonging their usability. Overall, the Resincoat Metal and Wood Primer is a versatile and essential tool for resin paint projects, offering both strength and aesthetic enhancement to surfaces.

Please note: the above coverage rates are dependent on the porosity of the surface.




Old paint finishes should be removed if flaking at all and the surface should be sanded to create a texture (also known as a mechanical key) prior to applying Resincoat Metal and Wood Primer. When preparing for a floor coat, doing so mechanically (shot-blasting or grinding) is always advisable for best results, but if that is not possible then sanding the area or our Etch and Clean is a good alternative. Wood, however, requires sanding. After the surface has been completely abraded, thoroughly sweep and vacuum the area of any remaining dust or contaminants. For more information on preparation, please see technical data sheet. 

Please note: Etch and Clean is only suitable for use on bare concrete.



We advise when applying this product the ambient temperature is at least 7°C.

1. Mix Part A on its own with a mixing paddle attached to an electric drill for about 1 minute before adding ALL of Part B and continue to mix for another 90 seconds, keeping the paddle in suspension to avoid mixing air into the unit.

2. Pour entirety of the tin's contents into a plastic paint scuttle or tray.

3. Immediately begin applying your primer with a nylon-bonded resin suitable roller.

4. Use a brush around the edges to cut in (a second pair of hands can be useful for this stage).

5. Subsequent coats of primer or paint should be applied between 12-24 hours after the primer has cured and is touch dry.


PLEASE NOTE: The pot life of this product is 20 minutes. This means that once parts have been mixed, the paint will start to chemically cure after this time. Ensure you remove the paint from the tin in this window. The paint will then be workable on your floor for up to 40 minutes. 

Pot life = Time to harden in pot following addition of hardener

Working Time = Time to apply product before it becomes unworkable



Roller sleeves should be used once per coat, two coats will require two roller sleeves.

This product should NOT be split. Taking smaller quantities from each tin, even if measured correctly, may cause issues with activating.

This product is NOT self levelling.
