Priming & Buffing

At Rex Lumber Company we can provide several options for priming and buffing. The best time to prime wood is when it is freshly machined, clean and dry, in a temperature and humidity controlled environment.

Our standard primer, which is white, is a specially formulated coating designed to be applied on bare wood, bonding with the substrate and providing a uniform surface for the topcoat to adhere to. It also acts as a sealer, forcing evaporation as designed and preventing solvents from the topcoat from soaking into the wood.

Paint is flooded on the product while it passes through the paint chamber and the excess paint is vacuumed off as it exits the chamber, leaving a uniform thickness. The moulding then passes through a dryer where it is then ready for shipping or buffing, depending on your requirements and needs. The buffing operation "scuffs" the exposed surfaces, which creates better intercoat adhesion between the prime coat and top coat. It also knocks off any slight fiber raising that may occur.


The capacity of the of our vacuum coater primers is 1/4” to 3” in thickness and 1/2” up to 11-3/4” in width.
