Advanced Technologies - Priming For Success

Priming for Success - FLAG Paints Ltd has launched the Advanced Technologies range.

The new range of primer products aims to raise awareness of how to deal with difficult problem areas by selecting the right solution for the problem. The primer is often the most important coat, if the primer is wrong the rest of the paint system is highly likely to fail. The new range, which is universally compatible with most traditional top-coats, represents a concise selection of essential problem solving primers.

The range features 4 products, designed to help address various issues affecting a wide range of areas around both home and commercial environments.
