Modern Masters Metallic Effects Acid Blocking Primer AM203
Modern Masters Metallic Effects Acid Blocking Primer AM203

The revolutionary Acid Blocking Primer is a unique water base, acrylic primer designed to block the Metal Effects® Patina Aging Solutions & Activators from reaching the metal or wood surface chosen as a substrate.

Other primers cannot be used because they allow the Patina Aging Solutions & Activators to penetrate through to the substrate. This will disrupt the desired patina color and damage the finish by bringing either rust or tannic acids to the surface. Acid Blocking Primer can be applied using a brush, roller or spray equipment and is suitable for interior/exterior surfaces.

Extended Information:
Modern Masters Metal Effects Primer is especially formulated to block Metal Effects Patina Aging Solutions and Activators from reaching the metal, wood, or reactive substrate. This helps prevent the formation of rust or other oxidation products from forming under the paint film. Metal Effects Primer will also block out alkali salts, tannins, acid salts, or other
unwanted contaminates from ‘bleeding through’ to the Metal Effects Reactive Metallic Paint film and causing adverse reactions and unwanted color changes in the oxidized finish. 

Metal Effects Primer can be brush, roll or spray applied. 

Surface Preparation – Remove all loose, peeling paint. Patch and repair any surface imperfections before using the
Metal Effects Primer. All surfaces should be sound, clean and free of oil, grease, wax, and other contaminants, and completely dry prior to priming. Surfaces previously primed require light sanding. Scuff sand any glossy surfaces. If unsure of the substrate,test a sample area to ensure the desired results. Some metal surfaces, such as bare aluminum, galvanized metal, or rusted or slag metals, will need a specialty primer from our recommended primer list, applied prior
to the application of Metal Effects Primer.  If this is the case, read the specific information for the recommended primer prior to beginning your project.  Properly prime the clean, dry surface with the recommended primer and allow the surface to dry completely — preferably overnight. Then follow the directions for applying Metal Effects Primer.
Note: Lower temperature and higher humidity will lengthen the dry and cure times of primers.

Taping – Use high quality, low-tack tape when taping over surfaces that have been previously painted.

Dry Times – Recoat time is approximately ½ hour. Dry time is approximately 12 hours. It is important that Metal Effects
Primer is completely dry before applying Metal Effects Reactive Metallic Paint. (Drying times were recorded at 70°F and 50%RH): Note: Lower temperature and/or higher humidity will lengthen the dry and cure times.

Coverage – One gallon/3.78 liters will cover approximately 320 square feet/29.7 square meters.  Approximately 1.5 mils dry film thickness per coat. A minimum of 3 mils dry film thickness is required.

Clean Up – Clean brushes, rollers, tool, and equipment with soap and warm water immediately after use. Do not reuse containers and properly dispose of empty containers.

VOC – Metal Effects Primer contains less than 100g/L.

Handling & Storage – Close tightly all containers when not in use. Store in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight.
Do not freeze. If Metal Effects Primer becomes frozen, allow to completely thaw and come to room temperature before use. Stir thoroughly before use.

Disposal – Dispose of unused or unwanted product in accordance with local laws regulating water-based coatings.
