Review this product
good product - I used this primer on panels, diluting slightly and applying three coats. The first thing I noticed was that it was very absorbent - too much so for my purposes. In future I shall sand it down with a fine finishing paper. which I think will give the surface that I'm after.
Altogether a good product at a reasonable price.
