ST. LOUIS, Nov. 24, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Masterchem Industries, maker of KILZ® brand products, announces the launch of KILZ Masonry and Stucco primer, a high-performance product that allows priming and painting of masonry surfaces just days after application.
KILZ Masonry and Stucco primer is an alkali resistant primer that can be used on recently poured masonry and stucco surfaces. This new primer from the KILZ brand enables painting professionals to prime and paint masonry and stucco surfaces just seven days after constructing, whereas non-alkali resistant primers require at least 30 days before application to masonry surfaces.
"KILZ Masonry and Stucco primer will put painting pros ahead of the curve and able to meet project deadlines more efficiently," said Jason Long, KILZ brand manager for Masterchem Industries. "We've talked with professional painters and contractors to guarantee their voices are heard when it comes to KILZ products and are excited to offer them a product they want."
Available in 5-gallon containers, KILZ Masonry and Stucco primer is perfect for painters who need to prime and paint a newly constructed masonry building faster while lowering the risk of lime burn, discoloration and efflorescence.
The primer penetrates and binds light surface chalk, creating a surface that is ready to be top coated. KILZ Masonry and Stucco primer is specifically designed and formulated for use on properly prepared interior and exterior above-grade masonry, stucco, plasters and poured and precast concrete.
