High Build Primer?


Wondering if someone could help me out with a question... What are suitable interior applications/uses for high-build primer?

Have a situation with fresh paint that peeled off a wall, buddy of mine suggested using a high build primer to correct the difference in thickness between the paint that peeled and the paint that adhered as opposed to skim coating..

I've never used a high build primer and I'm not sure if it would work in this situation. I'd appreciate any advice/info. Thanks!!

There's tuff-hide but that's prob not gonna work. Just skim the Low spots with some green bucket mud and feather it into the paint after priming.

So, primer first. Then skim coat? Or skim, prime everything, then topcoat?

This has already been covered in your other post. High build primer will not fix your issue. You're looking for a shortcut... there isn't one.

Prime area that peeled > Skim > Sand > Prime again.

Re: High Build Primer?


We do those type of fixes all day at work. If you want some thing quick and clean. Prime over the peeled areas using a quick dry primer (go past the damaged area), skim with 5 min mud. Within 20-30 min, you can wet sand it with nothing more than a wet rag and be dust free Once dry; prime and paint.
