DECOPRIME outperforms the competition
Comparison Test

A primer that is easily sandable provides a smooth and uniform surface, allowing for maximum adhesion of a topcoat. DECOPRIME does an excellent job at sanding without gumming as compared to the competition.

Test Method:
Using a 6 mil draw down bar, apply paint onto a black scrub chart. Allow samples to dry at room temperature for 2, 4, and 6 hours. Cut 220 grit sandpaper into 1.75” by 2.5” rectangles: one for each time period. After each period of dry time, fold sandpaper around short edge of wood block (the round edge allows it to be held more easily and will sand easier). In a smooth and consistent motion, sand across the draw down for 30 cycles, using a new piece of sandpaper for each time interval. Observe the effect of the sanded surface and if there was any gumming.
