The Importance of Using a High-Quality Car Primer in NZ

You need a good foundation to ensure the best and most long-lasting results from your automotive paint job. This means using a high-quality primer. Here are a couple of things to remember:

  1. It is never a good idea to cut corners when it comes to primers.
  2. For an auto refinishing job to be done right, the surface of the vehicle needs to be sanded before applying a good primer.

A primer's main job is to improve the adherence of paint to the bodywork of the vehicle. If you don't add primer, the paint simply won't bond properly to the surface. This applies where the surface is new or has aged over time. When the paint doesn't bond properly, it will start to peel and flake, exposing the surface to the elements and causing it to rust.

In addition to helping the paint adhere to the surface of the car, a good primer will also add an additional layer of protection for the surface, particularly metal surfaces. This protective layer also helps to prevent rust, particularly if the primer you use is a sealer.

Applying a primer before you paint a vehicle's surface will also help prevent the finish from looking dull because the paint has soaked into the surface.

Some primers will also fill small marks and scratches on the surface of the vehicle, especially the marks and scratches that are caused during the sanding process. This can save you time as it reduces the need to use putty or any other process designed to make the surface smooth before painting.

Tips to Properly Use an Automotive Primer

  • Most primers have two or more parts that need to be mixed. Make sure you mix the parts according to the manufacturer's recommendations.
  • Completely remove rust from the surface you are working with before you apply the primer.
  • Depending on the primer you choose, small scratches and marks will be filled by the application of the primer. However, for larger scratches, dents, and dings, you will need to fill them before applying the primer to get the best results. After filling, sand down the surface again before applying the primer.
  • Wash the surface after sanding and before applying the primer, so it is as clean as possible. Make sure the surface is dry before starting with the primer application.
  • After application, leave the primer to dry. Check the manufacturer's recommendations to get the correct drying time.
For bigger jobs on larger surface areas, you are likely to need two coats of primer.
