High performance, high-build primer for exterior or interior use.
Surfaces: New woodwork and previously painted surfaces
Application: Intended for use primarily on new wood which will be receiving the ECO Paint System.
ECO Primer/Undercoat is a “hybrid”, water thinnable alkyd coating intended for new interior or exterior woodwork. This primer is the preferred foundation for any ECO or HOLLANDLAC paint system because of its ability to penetrate and lock onto new wood. If absorption of primer occurs, reprime to obtain uniform film build before painting.
Surface should be clean, dry and free of dust, oil, grease and all foreign material that would affect adhesion. Prior to priming, all cracks or surface blemishes should be filled, sanded smooth and cleaned thoroughly. Shellac all knots before priming.
Tools: Use a first quality synthetic bristle brush or “hot dog” type foam roller. ECO Primer/Undercoat may also be sprayed – do not over thin (maximum 2 oz water per Eurogallon™.
Do not apply at temperatures below 40°F or above 80°F, or when relative humidity exceeds 80%.
Interior or exterior, waterborne primer for metals, fiberglass and plastics (Note: Not for polyesters or hard PVC).
Surfaces: Bonding primer for use on all metals, galvanized finishes and most plastics
Applications: Plastic furniture, gutters, range hoods, plastic shutters and vinyl siding
Interior or exterior, acrylic masonry primer.
Surfaces: Primer for brick, cement block, poured concrete
Interior or exterior, oil-based metal primer.
Surfaces: Rust-proofing primer for ferrous metal (iron, steel) (Note: Recommended for nailheads in siding. Sand rust before application. Please inquire about specialized primers if painting metals other than iron or steel.)
Applications: Metal doors, wrought-iron fences and furniture, farm and garden tools and equipment
High performance, high-build primer for exterior or interior use – may remain unpainted for up to twelve months, before painting.
Surfaces: Woodwork, plaster, previously painted wallboard and previously painted masonry surfaces.
Application: Superior primer for most surfaces to be finished with FPE Paint System. Specially formulated for stain blocking.
Color: Oil Primer/Undercoat is available in white.
Fiberglass Door Applications: *One coat of Oil Primer/Undercoat must be applied over Keyprimer in instances where Hollandlac Brilliant 98 or Satin is the desired topcoat on an unpainted fiberglass door. The Oil Primer/Undercoat would be a separate item which would need to be purchased in addition to the Dutch Door Kit.
FPE Oil Primer/Undercoat is a high performance, tintable primer for most interior and exterior wooden surfaces. This primer is an ideal foundation for the HOLLANDLAC, ECO and Eurolux House Paint systems. Application of Primer/Undercoat is an absolute necessity on new, unpainted surfaces which are to receive HOLLANDLAC Enamel or Swedish Putty. On exterior substrates in poor condition, we strongly recommend the application of Oil Primer/Undercoat – its excellent hiding and filling properties are especially desirable in restoration work as it provides a sound foundation for final coats of HOLLANDLAC or ECO.
The use of Oil Primer/Undercoat makes application of paint easier, faster and more economical. This high performance primer will ensure maximum adhesion and longevity of the finish coat. It is easy to apply and provides good hiding and matchless filling power. A good undercoat prevents penetration of moisture and ensures uniform opacity of finish coats. Oil Primer/ Undercoat is so durable that one coat will protect new exterior wood for up to twelve months without applying a finish coat!
Oil Primer/Undercoat is off-white in color and is recommended for use before all light and mid-tone colors. FPE Oil Primer/Undercoat is available custom tinted to match any color offered by our company.
By using the new tinted primers (especially in darker hues) clients can maximize the opacity and longevity of their painted finishes. Fine Paints requested this new system from our Dutch supplier after learning of its benefits – first discovered by German automobile manufacturers in the 1970’s.
Oil tintable primer was developed as an enhancement for existing paint systems and is not intended to create a one coat paint system over primer.
REMEMBER – a sound paint system is always comprised of at least one coat of high-quality primer followed by a minimum of two coats of finish paint.
Surface should be clean, dry and free of dust, oil, grease and all foreign material that would affect adhesion. Prior to priming, all cracks or surface blemishes should be filled, sanded smooth and cleaned thoroughly. Shellac all knots before priming. This sealer dries in ten minutes.
Tools: Use first quality, clean natural bristle brush (we recommend the Omega Small)
Flats S57’s and Omega Round Sash brush); for exterior work or larger brush projects, we recommend the Omega Large Full Oval S55-2 or S55-3; or professional-quality roller covers in 3/8” nap.
Spray: Under normal environmental conditions, this product requires no thinning. Clean up with FPE Mineral Spirits.
New Unpainted Wood: After preparation apply one coat and allow to dry for a minimum of 24 hours before recoating.
On new construction, we highly recommend that all exterior wood be primed on all “six” sides before nailing in place. There is no need for these wooden elements to dry before nailing. By priming the ends and open grain of exterior woodwork, you will prevent moisture intrusion and protect the value of new construction. If primer is absorbed by new wood and uniform surface film is not created, repriming should take place before finish paint is applied.
NOTE: When priming high quality resinous woods such as mahogany, we recommend that wood be wiped down with clean rag and lacquer thinner immediately before priming. This will “leech” out natural surface oils and allow primer to penetrate.
NOTE: When priming new sheetrock or wallboard, use EUROLUX waterborne primer rather than FPE Oil Primer/Undercoat, as the use of an alkyd may result in ”paper lift”. For best results, lightly sand Oil Primer/ Undercoat (220 or finer) before applying HOLLANDLAC Enamel in high focus areas.
Work area should always be well ventilated.
On sound calcimine: Painting over inexpensive calcimine paint has long been problematic because of its hard to stick to, chalky surface.
Fine Paints of Europe has developed the perfect solution to this problem in our Calcimine Undercoat and Calcimine Recoater offerings, namely our Oil Primer and Matte Oil.
These two products are specifically designed to penetrate deep into the binder-less calcimine and add back the missing binder.
No sanding necessary, simply roll on one coat of Calcimine Undercoater, followed by two topcoats of Calcimine Recoater. This system’s ability to “laminate” will reinforce and stabilize calcimine’s delicate film.
Oil Primer and Matte Oil are highly effective for calcimine surfaces. These two products are offered as a calcimine primer and calcimine recoater and are specially formulated to add years of service and polish back to your walls.
Almost unlimited in original unopened containers.

EUROLUX Universal Primer may also be used on previously painted waterborne or solventborne finishes, which have been cleaned and lightly sanded. This primer is intended for both interior and exterior applications. EUROLUX Universal Primer provides an ideal foundation for all Fine Paints of Europe waterborne and solventborne paints, including ECO. EUROLUX Universal Primer may be tinted to any color.
Walls, ceilings, and woodwork.
New unpainted surfaces: light sanding and surface cleaning, apply one coat of EUROLUX Universal Primer by brush, roller or spray. Sand with 320 sandpaper before application of finish paint.
Previously painted surfaces: Old finishes in poor condition should be removed or sanded harshly before priming with EUROLUX Universal Primer. Previously painted surfaces must be free of dirt, grease or other contaminates which could interfere with adhesion. After one coat of EUROLUX Universal Primer has been applied, sand with 320 sandpaper before application of the finish paint. EUROLUX Universal Primer should be applied with a synthetic brush, roller or sprayer. Apply smooth, even coats with minimal brushing or rolling, for best results. Do not apply at temperatures below 50 F or above 80 F or when relative humidity exceeds 80%. Clean tools immediately after use with hot water. Drying time: dust-free after approximately 30 minutes; can be recoated after approximately 4 hours. Apply without thinning under normal environmental conditions. If necessary, EUROLUX Universal Primer may be thinned slightly with water ( maximum 3 ounces per Eurogallon/2.5 Liters ). Stir well before use.
