Fredrix Primed Cotton Canvas Rolls

Fredrix Canvas rolls are primed in the USA using primed state-of-the-art industrial equipment.
In fact Fredrix pioneered machine priming of artist canvas in 1964.

Priming a canvas is an exact science and Fredrix takes pride in the way they have perfected their unique coating process. The Fredrix coating process is designed to impregnate the fibers of the canvas on the first coating pass. Many competitors apply the coating in a manner that merely “lays” the gesso on top of the canvas fibres which allows for future deterioration. The Fredrix machine priming process is the most sophisticated of its kind in the world.
