Paint


What is the performance of paint with the primer included? Which is the best brand? Thanks for your help.

Paint


Primers and paints are two different things and serve two different purposes. There are many threads here that discuss this. Primers and paints in one are simply gimmicks and really only apply to reducing the number of coats you need.

What is your application? We can help you select better if we know.
