Hirshfield’s interior latex drywall primer is a very fast drying, vinyl acrylic emulsion primer. It is designed for interior use only. Drywall Primer is very popular with painters because the prime coat and the finish coat may be applied the same day. Its high alkali resistance makes it possible to use this primer over new Sheetrock. Hirshfield’s interior latex drywall primer bridges hairline cracks and it will not raise the nap on wallboard or new tape joints that have been sanded. This product has outstanding hide and holdout.
This latex primer should be used as a first coat for new plaster, drywall, concrete, acoustical tile, brick, masonite, patching compounds and other wallboards. Because this is an emulsion type product, we do not recommend it for priming new wood. Do not use where water or smoke damage is a problem. It should be used as a primer for surfaces that are porous or exhibit poor hold out for the topcoat.
