Inglenook Fireplace Case Study

We are always delighted to receive feedback from our Customers. Recently, we received a fantastic letter from one of our customers who was working on an area around an old Inglenook fireplace. We would like to share their letter with you, where they mention using Rustoleum Pegaprim.

Customer Feedback

Dear Promain,

After advice from your technical help people I recently used Pegaprim Isofix Stain block to stop old creosote (300 year old house) from seeping through and staining badly a large newly plastered section of the inglenook fireplace. Following your directions (two coats in opposite directions and leave to cure properly for 5 – 7 days) the paint worked perfectly with not one trace of staining. I have now top coated with a distemper and the finish is excellent. This is a brilliant product.

Many thanks. Beau

Thank you to Beau for such great feedback!

After that fantastic feedback, we have three Pegaprim products available that we would like to introduce you to: Pegaprim Xpress Primer, Pegaprim Isofix and Pegaprim Sanitop.

Xpress Primer

Xpress Primer is designed for use inside and outside to offer excellent adhesion to metal and porous substrates such as, concrete, wood, fibreboards, masonry and plaster rendering.

This product is part of Promain’s fantastic Anti graffiti Paint range. It works well to block stains and provide a protective coating that obliterates tar, soot and graffiti. In addition, it offers users excellent drying time of just 30 minutes. You can recoat it after just 1 hour.


Isofix Stain Block is a high opacity, fast drying universal adhesion primer based on solvent borne Shellac resins. Pegaprim Isofix provides good adhesion on metal, wood, timber and smooth hard surfaces and is therefore ideal for Home and Garden Use.


Sanitop Mould and Mildew Resistant Wall and Ceiling Paint is an interior and exterior acrylic paint coating. It benefits from enhanced fungicidal protection. In humid areas there is often an increased build up of mould and mildew. However, Sanitop offers the ultimate hygiene factor as this coating covers and resists attack from further fungicides.
