On sound calcimine: Painting over inexpensive calcimine paint has long been problematic because of its hard to stick to, chalky surface.
Fine Paints of Europe has developed the perfect solution to this problem in our Calcimine Undercoat and Calcimine Recoater offerings, namely our Oil Primer and Matte Oil.
These two products are specifically designed to penetrate deep into the binder-less calcimine and add back the missing binder.
No sanding necessary, simply roll on one coat of Calcimine Undercoater, followed by two topcoats of Calcimine Recoater. This system’s ability to “laminate” will reinforce and stabilize calcimine’s delicate film.
Oil Primer and Matte Oil are highly effective for calcimine surfaces. These two products are offered as a calcimine primer and calcimine recoater and are specially formulated to add years of service and polish back to your walls.
