  • Clear Sealers. Synthetic resin based clear sealers are your best choice for porous or powdery surfaces. This type of sealer is alkali resistant and has excellent binding and penetrating properties. In addition, it dries quickly and it is suitable for porous surfaces, raw plaster walls, brickwork, ceilings and cement renderings. Contact your local retailer for more information about these types of sealers.
  • Plaster Primer. This primer is also synthetic resin based with white pigmentation and it is alkali resistant on many coats of paints. Plaster Primer has good penetrating properties and dries quickly to a hard matt finish. It can be used on brick, plaster, concrete, fibre cement surfaces and masonry rhinolite surfaces.
