Chemcraft Industrial Wood Coatings launched OmniBuild Pro, a new primer surfacer designed for challenging substrate variations, while building a thick and smooth foundation for topcoating.

OmniBuild Pro, a Conversion Varnish Primer, has a high-solids formulation that provides superior build, sag resistance and hide, Chemcraft says. It’s easy to apply, sands quickly and has a fast stack time.

“Our goal was to develop the ultimate primer surfacer for even the most challenging substrates like routed MDF – one that, with a single coat, provides the ultimate surface for topcoating,” says Ron Cooper, AkzoNobel Segment Manager, Chemcraft, North America. “We’re very excited to bring this leading-edge technology to our distributors and end users.”

Field testing for the product was handled by Chemcraft Distributor Wurth Louis. “OmniBuild Pro is user-friendly, has excellent vertical hang and is fast-drying,” says Adam Egbert, Coatings Sales Specialist, Wurth Louis. “It has a 24-hour pot life and works with all spray systems and flat line machinery.”
