EverBuild 406 Stabilising Solution 5 Litre
About this deal
is very good, stripped off wall paper in several bedrooms here, paint underneath was distemper type paint, colour rubbed off on your hand if wet, also dusty, 406 sealed it perfectly for painting.
Realistically and with the right technique, materials and time, you can pretty much prepare any surface in poor condition and bring it up to a "like new" condition Stabilising solution is a great product to use and will increase your walls’ durability whilst preparing them for future paintwork. I had an extension built which was rendered. The plasterer roughed up the smooth render to try and make it textured like the rest of the house (not very successfully, but that's by the by). How annoying is it to prep walls, lining paper drying out nicely then you spot a single piece of grit under the paper that now looks like a huge pimple about to explodeWould you ever used a watered down first coat on areas of render that are dry and chalky so have been treated with stabilising solution? It's just the time element, or more to the point, time versus money - skilled labour don't come cheap When it comes to painting any exterior wall, we highly recommend opting for the Emperor Paint range.

I have tried stabilising solution and PVA but the problem keeps recurring. Any suggestions to prevent this happening would be helpful. Looks more like a mortar than a render coat, more or less same ingredients just a different recipe !Below is a sample of questions received on the subject of stabilising primers… White dust on stonework?
New builds don’t generally need stabilising. My advice would be to go for a mist coat and top coats. FYI, if you’re looking for good exterior masonry paint, I’d recommend Sandtex (the smooth version rather than textured). Here’s an exterior I painted recently using their white masonry paint:
A subject that crops up a lot on the topic of exterior wall paint is ‘Stabilising Solution’ or ‘Primer’. Some peeps seem to think that lining paper covers all damage with either no or little prep required I have a small passageway at the side of the house that was built about 30 years ago of wood but in the last 10 years slowly deteriorated until it collapsed in 2018. The smooth render is fine. But the roughed up render is what I'd describe as chalky. I can brush off loose render with my fingers.
