This water-based smooth quartz primer,  EPIC Fondo Universal Primer is a high-quality wall preparation product (It.: fondothat ensures the optimum adhesion, durability and look of Italian finishes like Venetian polished plasters, Italian designer paints or metallic finishes. This water-based primer with micronized quartz sand has excellent coverage, opacity and virtually no smell.

The Universal Primer creates a film that can resist the alkalinity of plasters, enables even drying and proper bonding. Can be used on old walls or freshly painted or plastered surfaces; to eliminate chalking and/or stabilize the surface a special surface stabilizer product should be used before.

Quartz primers of this quality reduce or eliminate bubbling and can create a bonding coat even with non-absorptive surfaces like metal or glass or highly absorptive such as wood.

Before use, it should be diluted with 1:3 with water (3dl or a half pint of water per litre of primer).

Universal primer was formulated to create a strong bonding coat for smooth interior finishes only. If you’re looking for a primer for large-grain lime plasters (for interiors or exteriors) please see Unifix.


Impera Italia’s Advice™

Based on the level of absorbency of the substrate one or two coats of the diluted Universal Primer should be applied before application can start. In case of designer paints or metallic finishes the primer’s shade should be similar to the finish.
