primer not sticking

Recommended Posts

I am having some problems with the primer not adhesion to the wood after sealing the bait, is there some other preparation after the bait is sealed before applying the primer paint ?

I usually I sand down the bait sealer than I wipe it with a damp cloth ad now I also dry the bait in a electric oven to 90  degrees

I did switch primer paint in the past i used white rust-oleum primer, now I use Zinsser prime which I really like

Any suggestion welcome

On many baits I prime, then thin coat epoxy. Doing it this way if I goof up on the paint, I can wipe off the paint and try again without repriming.

it all depends on what you sealed with? and yes as,Chuck youg stated a scuff for primer bite. we use solvent based primer.it meshes with the sealcoat.
