Home / Glossary / Undercoat
Undercoat: An undercoat is a base layer of paint applied over the primer to help cover surface imperfections, even out the texture, and enhance the paint colour. It provides a smooth and consistent surface for the topcoat, ensuring a high-quality finish. For example, when painting a wall with a dark colour, an undercoat of a similar shade or a tinted primer can be used to minimize the number of topcoats required for full coverage and to achieve a richer, more vibrant final colour.
