What does primer paint do?

Paint primers provide a slightly abrasive surface for your car’s spray paint to stick to. Without a primer, your spray paint will simply slide away.

They work by turning porous surfaces into a smooth, adhesive base upon which paint can be applied- and they’re great for enabling the painting of cars and vans.

About our primer paint products

At Halfords we stock a full suite of primer products designed to meet your every car-painting need, including:

  • Anti-rust primers
  • Etch primers
  • Specialist primers

Each of which will provide the right basis for your paint restoration project.

Spray primers & etch primers

You might need a primer after filling a dent or hole, sorting out a scratch or if you’re planning on a complete respray. As well as standard primers, we sell etch primers that work by using an acid to adhere to your car’s surface. They cure faster and are preferred by the trade. We also have anti-rust primers that will ensure your repair doesn’t degrade over time.

Our primers are part of our comprehensive range of car paints and body repair products, all of which you can buy online. We stock a wide variety of colour-matched car spray paints and paint restorers that will have your car looking as good as new.
