AURO 253 is a water-based, solvent-free white undercoat for use between 124 Wood Primer and 250/260 Gloss/Matt Silk Paint.

On interior surfaces 124 Wood Primer can be substituted by an initial coat of 253 Undercoat diluted with 10% water.  Dust dry in 6-9 hours, re-coatable after 24 hours. Always use this product when using our water-based wood finishes on top of old acrylic or oil-based glosses; key back old surface by lightly sanding and then proceed with 1 coat of 253 Undercoat followed by 2 top coats of 250/260 Gloss/Matt Silk.
