A coat worn under another; a light coat, as distinguished from an overcoat, or a greatcoat.
Matt finish paint (usually oil paint) used before the finish coat.
All of the products used to prepare the surface to receive color coats ( primers, surfaces, putties, sealers, etc.).
Any paint applied under a topcoat. Often but not always synonymous with the term primer.
A growth of short, fine hair, or pile, partly or entirely concealed by the coarser top coat which grows through it.
A coating applied prior to the finishing or top coats of a paint job. It may be the first of two of three coats. In some usage of the word it may become synonymous with priming coat.
Coat applied to the surface after preparation and before the application of a finish coat.
The layer or layers of paint that cover the surface, build up film thickness, and furnish an even surface for the final coat.
Dense, soft, short coat concealed by a longer top coat.
The first primer, sealer, or surfacer coat of a finish.
A layer of paint that masks surface discolouration adheres well to the previous coating whilst also providing a good key for top coating.
The portion of a cat's coat beneath the topcoat that consists of down hairs.
A first coat of paint applied before applying the finishing colour, or topcoat. The undercoat is usually coarser than the topcoat, to give good adhesion to the substrate below and the paint being applied over the top. It also brings a model back to a single colour, which can be useful if parts have been mould ed separately and are slightly different in colour. It can be also advisable to use an undercoat if you think there may be excessive amounts of release agent on a model kit, although cleaning the plastic thoroughly with warm water and soap is always best. Undercoat s are most commonly grey, since grey is easy to hide with most topcoat colours.

Any coat applied to a surface after priming and before the finish coat. It is matt with a high content of pigment and extender and a colour approaching or helping that of the finish coat. They have many functions, increasing the thickness of the overall film, hiding the colour of the primer or the previous layer on the existing substrate, and they are generally tinted in a similar colour range as the topcoat. Varnish undercoats have less oil per unit of resin than varnish finishes.!-- google_ad_client = "pub-8039990704443990"; google_ad_width = 468; google_ad_height = 60; google_ad_format = "468x60_as"; google_ad_type = "text_image"; google_ad_channel ="6807473505"; google_color_border = "FFFFFF"; google_color_bg = "FFFFFF"; google_color_link = "0000FF"; google_color_text = "000000"; google_color_url = "FF3300";
