Owatrol E-B (Emulsa-Bond)

From £34.74

Bonding Primer & Paint Stabiliser

Owatrol E-B has been formulated to stop any peeling problems on all porous surfaces. It is a stir-in paint additive for use in water-based masonry or interior paints.


  • Provides a bonding primer and a first flat coat of masonry or interior paint in one.
  • Stabilises chalky, powdery or porous surfaces and reduces peeling problems.
  • Maximises adhesion between the first and second coats.
  • Recoatable after 4 hours.
  • Improves the durability of the finish.

Where to use

  • For exterior or interior use.
  • Apply Owatrol E-B modified paint over sound but chalky paint (emulsion or oil); distemper; sandblasted masonry or weathered, but sound asbestos cladding.
  • Ideal for repainting chalky aluminum cladding, plywood or hardboard cladding and cementitious cladding.

Surface Preparation

  • Follow directions on the paint label.
  • Wash protected areas (overhangs, porch ceilings, etc.) with detergent and water. Rinse thoroughly before painting.
  • To treat mildew make a solution of 1 part bleach to 3 parts fresh water to this add detergent – Allow this solution to remain on the surface for 10-15 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with fresh water and allow washed areas to dry before painting.
  • Avoid contact with eyes and skin, and provide adequate ventilation.


NOTE: Use only in the first coat of paint

  • Shake container well.
  • Always mix a small amount of Owatrol E-B with paint to test compatibility.
  • Mix 1 part Owatrol E-B to 4 parts paint.
  • Stir paint and Owatrol E-B mixture thoroughly. If paint thickens add enough water to return paint to its original consistency.
  • Apply paint as usual.
  • Apply any additional coats without Owatrol E-B. Apply additional coats when the Owatrol E-B/ paint mixture is dry.
  • Do not apply more paint while the Owatrol E-B/ paint mix film feels soft or tacky.


Coverage: Coverage will vary with the texture and porosity of the surface. Generally 20% less material is used than if the paint or stain had been applied without Owatrol E-B.
