If drying times are not followed, this can result in poor adhesion and reduced resistance. For each layer of Master Base Primer, drying times will be increased. High temperature and low air humidity will reduce drying times. Low temperature and high air humidity will extend drying times. Absorption of tannic acid is not considered as a valid cause for complaint.

Master Base Primer, Nordic White is a water-based wood primer that is ideal for areas where a light nordic look is required. The primer seals the wood and minimizes the tannic acid penetration and side-bonding. It is only suitable for untreated or sanded surfaces for all wood types before treatment with other water-based WOCA floor lacquers.


Products in use
It is important that both wood and product have a temperature of min. 15 °C (preferably around 20 °C) and air humidity of approximately 40-60 %. Make sure that the room is well-ventilated for optimal evaporation and drying time. Untreated floors must be free of dirt, grease, wax and dust. Final sanding must be done with fine sandpaper (grit 120). Vacuum carefully afterwards. The surface must be free of dirt, grease, wax and dust. The primer must be room temperature before use. Shake the Master Base Primer thoroughly before use.

Always remember to test on a less visible spot to check the compatibility of the surface with the product.

  1. Apply the primer undiluted with brush or roller, following the wood along its length, and allow the surface to dry. Please note: For a more intensive light appearance, apply another coat of primer. Sanding must be done after the first coat with GRIT 180-220 sandpaper (a treatment with a white-pigmented material generally requires more even sanding to prevent the pigments from sticking in the sanding grooves).
  2. When the wanted appearance has been achieved, apply 1-2 topcoats with one of the WOCA floor lacquers. Always apply a minimum of three coats (primer and lacquer) for ideal protection.
It is not recommended to apply more than two coats of primer/lacquer per day due to risk of excessive wood swelling.
