Primer and Temperature

Anonymous asked 10 years ago

What are the guidelines for outdoor temperature when using alkyd primer (Benjamin Moore). The air should be dry – not humid and around 50 – 55 degrees- is this OK?

The general guidelines are 50 degrees and over with dry conditions. The temperature can be pushed a little lower, 35-40 degrees, by using Japan Dryers. Japan Dryers is a special oil paint/primer additive that speeds-up the drying of oil base products.
