Rustoleum Contract Primer is a matt, breathable, water based acrylic primer for wall paints formulated for the painting contractor industry. Suitable for interior and exterior use.

Best Uses

Rustoleum Contract Primer is a water-based acrylic primer for wall paint. Prevents variations in gloss, ensures better adhesion and hiding power, reduces absorption and improves coverage when applying the finishing coats. Solvent-free, low-odour and quick drying. For interior and exterior use.

Rustoleum Contract Primer is formulated as a primer on existing coats of wall paint, lightly powdering and absorbent mineral substrates. Suitable surfaces include existing coats of paint, cement and plasterwork, concrete, brick, gypsum panelling, board, etc.

In the case of old layers of wallpaper, make sure that the wallpaper adheres adequately to the substrate. Old layers of vinyl wallpaper may contain plasticisers which slow paint drying.

  • Solvent free and virtually odourless
  • Good penetration
  • Water soluble


The surface must be capable of supporting the paint, completely set, clean, dry, and free from dust or grease. Sand and repair surface irregularities. Remove and/or repair all loose and unstable coats. In the case of exterior applications, remove all moss, mould and algal growth.

For new, untreated substrates: Once dry, prime with wall primer opaque. Thoroughly clean lightly powdering surfaces. For existing intact coats of wall paint, clean using suitable paint cleaner. For existing, non-load-bearing substrates, thoroughly remove loose coats. Thoroughly wash powdery coats and allow them to dry and carry out any repairs. Prime with stabilising primer.

For contaminated walls caused by nicotine, damp, rust or soot, clean thoroughly using paint cleaner. Treat surface/stain with sealing primer. The systems described above apply for the most common types of surface. For specific applications and/or detailed advice, please contact our technical team.

Stir thoroughly prior to use. Apply 1 coat with a suitable brush, roller or paint sprayer. Always work wet-on-wet to prevent visible marks in the paint. Back-roll all overlaps in the same direction. Do not touch up when drying.
