By Daniel Wilson
Crown Trade PX4 (Water-based) Is a High-performance all-purpose primer, specifically developed to achieve excellent adhesion, even on tricky surfaces.
PX4 is a water-based, stain-blocking adhesion primer that offers protection from alkaline attack. PX4 also features the added advantage of a quick drying and low-odour finish. This really is an advanced all-purpose primer Excellent adhesion Blocks stubborn stains Resists alkaline attack Water-based, quick drying formulation.
Recoatable Time: 1 Hour
Pack Size : 1L, 5L
Touch Dry : 30 minutes
Application : I have used in the past Tikkurila Otex Akva and Caparol Half Primer. Both are very good as an adhesion primers, but unfortunately not available on my doorstep. They also do not have any water stain blocking properties. So, I was very keen to try out the new Crown PX4.
I did test it on a water stain on a ceiling and although at first, I thought it hadn’t covered the stain, after emulsion was applied the stain did not penetrate through. I also used PX4 on High glossed interior doors and trim. Opacity was as equal as the other named brands and its adhesion was superb.
Cost: These prices are “off the shelf” as I thought that would be only fair to compare. PX4 is just over £20 for a litre and 5 litres £79.99. Zinsser Bullseye 123 plus is exactly the same price!!
I really like Crown PX4 and it’s great to see our local suppliers joining our demands for a water-based adhesion primer. More customers are demanding water-based paints nowadays and although the big 3 all sell water-based paints buy only crown have bothered with an adhesion primer.
PX4 id easy to use, fast drying, great opacity, blocks stains well and sticks to basically any surface, It is a massive step up from any other the other adhesion primers I’ve tried. The best thing is, it’s an “off the shelf” product for money Crown Decorating Centre. No more ordering online if you need an adhesion primer which performs at a good level. I’ll be using this product regularly going forward!!
