Top notch

First off Max...he paints a topcoat within an hour of priming isnt a solid painter. Peel bond is outstanding. Used it on badly weathered and spider webbed cedar lapboard. Does wonders. I let my coatings cure at least 24hrs based on weather/humidity. Great product.

Not impressed

24-48 hours recoat time does not save time. As the article says: time is money. (Peel Bond, by XIM, is thicker, and ready for topcoat in 3 hours)

PrimeRx Review

4 5 1
It\\\'s a fairly new product but I have used it 4-5 times now and it seems comparable to PeelBond. It tints a little better and is able to match up to the homeowners chosen color.

PrimeRx PEEL BONDING PRIMER Overall rating: ★★★★☆ 3.7 based on 4 reviews

    Pellbond knockoff Zinnser also has one called peel stop .

  2. SCCCI Painting says:

    I smell load of trouble with this Primer, painters all over America will now use less effort to prep and end up having to re do the job just years later. Hope this trend doesnt catch on.

  3. Interesting product, I would like to try it out on a nice clean surface see how it sprays on. I’ll post my results and thoughts.

  4. Have any of you already tried this product? I have heard that you can get a better price from SW. I would like to know if it compares to XIM Peelbond and/or Zinsser Peel Stop triple thick.
