See, only 'faron' came remotely close to giving a correct answer to the (still) nonsense question: "PVA primer vs tinted primer"?

That question is almost impossible to answer because it is the same thing as asking: an apple or an orange?

PVA primer is a primer made with a polyvinyl acetate binder resin, the way paints were made in the beginning some 40 years ago. They are the cheaper grades of primer as PVA resin like the ones I used to sell are plentiful and therefore cheap.

Acrylic paints are usually made with 100% acrylic binder resins, but these are more expensive to buy. Only the top lines of every manufacturer have 100% acrylic resins in them but they are often worth the added $.

You can tint either of them...that's why the OP question made no sense. He might as well have asked: "a Ford - or a green car?" Neither is mutually exclusive of the other therefore a choice between the two is meaningless.

You can tint any primer or paint you want within limits; however you have less control over the binder resin inside the can, apart from going to say a BenjaminMoore or a SherwinWilliams and getting their best.

This point was lost on all but faron and chrisn, so these two alone deserve to know this.

The rest can use Behr LOL


Thanks

PVA primer vs. Tinted primer?


Thanks CCA, Chrisn, and the OP/HandyBrad!

I was kinda wondering what "twilight-zone" thread I had gotten myself into!

I thought I had gotten too geeky there for my own good!

CCA...watch out...New Years parties are comin' up......maybe you should stay away from forums......
