Home A Primer on Primers: First Coat & Tuff-Hide

This week, Lydia breaks out the sample boards to demonstrate the importance of a quality drywall primer. Sheetrock® Brand First Coat™ Primer is designed for preparing new, interior gypsum panel walls and ceilings to minimize texture variations and equalize the porosity between the joint and the field of the board so that paint and texture have a uniform finish, and Tuff-Hide™ Primer-Surfacer minimizes joint banding and photographing. These two primer solutions create a perfect finish for new drywall.
