Rodda Paint Company Introduces: New SharkSkin® Primer/Sealer

PORTLAND, Ore., Sept. 3, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Rodda Paint Company, the largest family-owned paint manufacturer in the Northwest, announces the release of SharkSkin Primer/Sealer — a new flexible, semi-elastomeric, acrylic water-based Primer/Sealer designed to stabilize surfaces and increase the adhesion of solid top coats, such as SharkSkin Solid Hide stain.

SharkSkin Primer/Sealer is formulated to promote adhesion to structurally sound surfaces, such as CMU, plaster and concrete as well as horizontal and vertical wood surfaces.

A unique copolymer design, SharkSkin Primer/Sealer penetrates and seals porous surfaces as well as locks down deteriorating surfaces in order to extend the service life and performance of top coats. It covers the existing finish to seal the edges of peeling and checked old coatings to lock them down for a uniform top coat.

SharkSkin Primer/Sealer remains flexible over the paint’s service life, thereby reducing cracking and peeling of the top coat.

NOTE: SharkSkin Primer/Sealer is a transparent primer and not tintable. SharkSkin Primer/Sealer can ONLY BE USED UNDER a SOLID top coat – NOT for use under a transparent, semi-transparent, clear or penetrating deck coating.
