ELPR160-TB is a universal water based primer with tannin blocking properties that provides an excellent foundation for any solid colour systems on solid wood, veneer, MDF or for refinishing as a 1K product. It offers fast dry times and is easy to sand. ELPR160-TB can also be applied over T9000 that has dried for 1-2 hours. It has excellent leveling and anti-sag for vertical applications and very easy to spray brush or roll. It can also be used as a 2K product by adding 5% CAT100LV Hardener. After priming, PR160-TB is suitable to be topcoated with Envirolak’s 200, 400 or 800 series and many other topcoats. Do not use 100 series over PR160-TB.


This product is designed for interior wood finishing applications such as cabinetry, tables, furniture and millwork.


Reduction is not required when spraying with Air Assisted Airless, Airless, pressure pots, HVLP turbine and conventional cup guns but the product may be reduced with water or ELRX010 Reducer if desired or when brushing and rolling to improve leveling. Product should be at room temperature and mixed thoroughly prior to application.


Raw wood substrate should be sanded with 120-180 grit sandpaper prior to applying primer. Sand primer with 320 grit sandpaper and refine with super fine sponges if needed.

Flush all equipment with water until it runs clear. Built-up coating and deep cleaning can be performed using ELRX110 EnviroKlean WB Cleaner. For best results cleaning tips, aircaps and unpainted parts use ELRX110 for one hour or 10-20 minutes in an Ultrasonic bath (max. temp. 50°C/120°F). Do not leave painted parts (i.e. spray guns) in ELRX110 for more than 20 minutes.


Use stainless steel (304/316) equipment for all water based products. When switching between solvent and water based products in the same spray equipment we suggest the following:
