Do I Need A Primer?
Some colors, especially yellows, reds and oranges, and other dark accent colors, are considered by the paint industry to be “poor hiding” colors. That means they usually need a primer because, despite their strong, vibrant color, they’re not good at hiding the color they’re covering.
Using a grey or tinted primer can help you avoid having to apply multiple coats of paint to get the color you want. A tinted primer will help prepare the existing surface for your color. After that, you’ll typically only need to apply two coats of paint to get that perfect result.
At ECOS, we can help you tell which colors need a primer. Click here to print a zig-zag patterned paint card you can use to test your paint sample. Apply two coats of paint over the pattern. If you can still see the pattern through the paint, you’ll get better results if you use a grey or tinted primer under your color.
Painting Tips to Improve “Hide"
- Always choose a high-quality paint like ECOS.
- If you have multiple cans of the same color, combine them before you start to paint.
- Always stir paint thoroughly before painting.
- Don’t thin or dilute the paint with water.
- Use the correct primer as described above, or when you’re applying paint over a porous surface.
- Don’t spread the paint too thinly or unevenly.
- Allow the recommended drying time between coats.
- Always use high-quality brushes, rollers, and other tools.

|Preparation||Good surface preparation is vital for the perfect finish. Surfaces should be clean, dry, and free from any dirt, dust, or contaminants. Repair any cracks, holes, or imperfections. Sand glossy surfaces with fine grit sandpaper first to ensure good adhesion. Before painting, clean stubborn areas with mild detergent, and remove any loose, or peeling paint, then rinse and dry thoroughly before painting. ECOS Paint is self-priming on most properly prepared surfaces, but we recommend using one of our primers if painting over a higher gloss finish, a darker color, or applying an accent color.|
|Application and Clean Up||Stir well before use. If using multiple containers of the same color, intermix them all to ensure color uniformity. Can be applied using a high quality synthetic brush, rolled using a shed-resistant 3/8” to 1/2” roller cover, or sprayed using an airless sprayer with 0.015” to 0.017” tip at 1600 to 1800 psi. Do not apply in temperatures below 50oF. For best results, always apply two coats of paint. Dries to the touch in 30 to 60 minutes. Recommended wait time between coats is 2 to 4 hours. High humidity and cool temperatures may result in longer dry and recoat times. Do not thin the paint. Clean up with warm soapy water.|
