Owatrol E-B is a high penetrating, stir-in paint additive for use in water-based masonry or interior paints. It will help alleviate peeling problems on all porous surfaces. Owatrol E-B is especially suitable for unstable, chalky and powdery surfaces, crumbling brickwork or render.
E-B acts as a stabiliser, penetrating deep into the surface to firmly bond the first coat of paint to the substrate. This, therefore, eliminates the need for primer.
Owatrol E-B provides a bonding primer, stirs in easily, and does not alter the original colour of the paint. It offers a time-saving benefit by eliminating the need to separately prime.
E-B greatly speeds up and simplifies the painting process, especially on difficult substrates. Mixing it with the first coat ensures a strong, wear- and peel-resistant bond without the need to apply a separate primer and then allow it to dry before you begin painting the final colour.
It is particularly useful for quick and effective painting of interior plaster, allowing the first coat of the final colour to also do the job of both primer and mist coat.
E-B is also an extremely versatile product. It can be added to the first coat to replace a primer, but if for whatever reason you prefer a traditional, separate primer it can also be used for that. This product can bond paint to a wide range of surfaces including powdery, chalky, porous, or otherwise difficult surfaces.
It can be used on plaster and masonry, wood, glass, plastic, and varnished surfaces.
