  3. Product Features

    • Excellent adhesion and hiding power.
    • Can be top coated with a wide range of NEO Paints’ decorative solvent based products.
    • Contains alkyd resin as well as a certain amount of linseed oil. Linseed oil migrates into the wooden substrate and penetrates deeply. Due to this penetration there is an exceptional good bond between the wood and the paint coating.
