Technical Information Polystyrene Primer

DUPLI-COLOR STYRO PRIMER forms a separating layer between polystyrene surfaces and subsequent coating with solvent-based lacquers.

After using this protective primer you can lacquer the object with any DUPLI-COLOR synthetic, nitro-combi or acrylic spray paint.

Indispensable for stand constructors, decorators etc., but also for handicraft work at home or in courses and seminars.

Using instructions

The most DUPLI-COLOR spray paints have a so-called no-spray ring or a tamper-proof cap. This is to avoid unauthorized use. Please see the corresponding advises on the cap or on the label.
Before use, carefully read and observe the warning texts on the label!


  • The ground has to be clean, dry and free from fat.
  • Mask off areas not to be painted.
  • Before use, shake the can for approx. 2 minutes.
  • Spray from a distance of approx. 20 cm several thin cross-coats. To achieve a sufficient protection, we recommend to apply at least 3 cross-coats.
  • In order to grant an optimal protection, it is necessary to have an all-over coating without gaps.
  • Apply an additional cross-coat onto rough, open polystyrene surfaces, especially cut and waste edges.
  • After drying you may apply any DUPLI-COLOR top coat you desire. Apply the first paint layer in a light, nebular way.

Tips for spray painting

Protect the object and the surrounding area from spray mist.
Temperature should range between +10°C and +25°C, max. air humidity 60 %.

Store in a dry place. Protect from direct sunlight and other sources of heat. Use only during dry weather, in places protected from the wind, and in well-ventilated rooms. Follow the warning texts on the labels!
