Loxon Primer

The Ultimate Guide to Using Loxon Masonry Primer for Your Next Project

June 05, 20243 min read

Hello, everyone! Ken here from Total Quality Painting. Today, I’m excited to talk about a product that has become a staple in our painting projects – Loxon Masonry Primer. If you’re looking to achieve a professional, long-lasting finish on your masonry surfaces, this primer is an absolute game-changer. Let’s dive into why Loxon Masonry Primer should be your go-to choice and how to use it effectively.

Why Choose Loxon Masonry Primer?

1. Superior Adhesion

 One of the primary reasons we love Loxon Masonry Primer is its exceptional adhesion properties. It binds to surfaces like brick, stucco, and concrete, creating a perfect base for the topcoat. This ensures that your paint job will withstand the test of time, resisting peeling and flaking.

2. Moisture Resistance

Masonry surfaces are prone to moisture issues, which can lead to mold, mildew, and paint failure. Loxon Masonry Primer is designed to be highly moisture-resistant, protecting your surfaces from the elements and maintaining the integrity of your paint job.

3. Alkali Resistance

New masonry often contains high levels of alkali, which can cause paint to blister and peel. Loxon Masonry Primer has excellent alkali resistance, making it ideal for use on fresh masonry that hasn’t fully cured yet. This allows you to start your painting projects sooner without compromising on quality.

4. Easy Application

Loxon Masonry Primer is easy to apply, whether you’re using a brush, roller, or sprayer. Its smooth consistency ensures even coverage, and it dries quickly, allowing you to move on to the next step of your project without unnecessary delays.5. You can repurpose blog content for social media.

How to Use Loxon Masonry Primer

Step 1: Surface Preparation

Before applying the primer, it’s crucial to prepare your surface properly. Make sure the masonry is clean, dry, and free of any loose debris. For heavily soiled areas, consider using a pressure washer. Repair any cracks or damaged areas with a suitable filler and allow them to dry completely.

Step 2: Choosing the Right Tools

Depending on the size and nature of your project, choose the appropriate tools for application. A high-quality brush or roller is perfect for smaller areas and detailed work, while a sprayer is ideal for larger surfaces. Ensure your tools are clean and in good condition to achieve the best results.

Step 3: Applying the Primer

Stir the Loxon Masonry Primer thoroughly before use. Apply a uniform coat to the surface, working in small sections to maintain a wet edge and avoid lap marks. For optimal performance, follow the manufacturer’s recommended coverage rates. In most cases, one coat is sufficient, but extremely porous surfaces might require a second coat.

Step 4: Drying Time

Allow the primer to dry completely before applying your topcoat. Drying times can vary based on temperature and humidity, but Loxon Masonry Primer typically dries to the touch within 1-2 hours and can be recoated after 4 hours.

Step 5: Applying the Topcoat

Once the primer is dry, you’re ready to apply your topcoat. Loxon Masonry Primer works well with a variety of paints, but we recommend using high-quality exterior paint for the best results. Apply the topcoat according to the paint manufacturer’s instructions and enjoy the stunning, long-lasting finish.

Using Loxon Masonry Primer is a smart choice for any masonry painting project. Its superior adhesion, moisture resistance, and alkali resistance make it an essential product for achieving a durable, professional finish. At Total Quality Painting, we trust Loxon Masonry Primer to deliver outstanding results every time, and we’re confident you’ll love it too.
