Subject: CPES as primer?
Date: Tue, 09 Jul 2002
I've coated some exterior wooden beams I'm restoring with CPES, after
having fixed the rotted portions. Should I still use a conventional
primer paint now, or just go straight to the final paint?
Your choice. CPES serves as a primer, and the only reason to add a
conventional primer is for the "build" to get a smoother finish. The
wood is protected by the CPES.
