Customer Questions
Is this suitable on hardboard

Johnstone's Trade Wood Primer can be applied to hardwood but we would recommend Johnstone's Trade Joncryl Primer Undercoat.

can I use this over oil based high gloss and then apply a finishing coat of water based paint?
No, This is used for new wood not previously painted wood. We would advise using regular undercoat.
