Jotun Visir Clear Primer is a special water repellant primer that contains powerful fungicides against wood rotting fungi, and film fungicides to protect against surface moulds. Jotun Visir Clear Primer binds loose wood fibres and provides a good surface for further treatment, and contains added agents to protect woodwork against dangerous UV light.

Surface Preparation: To be used before applying opaque stains and coatings systems – can be used on all new and weatherworn external woodwork, and also on pressure impregnated wood. The substrate must be clean, sound and dry: For the best possible edge coverage, sand down sharp edges. Substrates that have been untreated for more than 4 weeks must be cleaned and loose wood fibres must be removed. Previously treated wood should be cleaned using a suitable cleaning agent. Remove loose paint and wood fibres by wire brush or scraping. Visir Clear Primer can be used during the cold times of the year (below +5°C).
Typical Use: Only for outdoor application. To be used before applying stains - can be used on all new and weatherworn external woodwork. Also recommended under opaque stains and paints - during the cold season (under + 5°C).
Application: Use a primer brush, avoid dry brushing. Do not brush across the cladding but apply VISIR Oljegrunning klar in the longitudinal direction of the cladding. The primer must be brushed out thoroughly to prevent the product from forming film on the substrate. Wipe off excess primer from intact substrates.
