Default Best way to prime new exterior wood

Hi guys,

I'm looking for a better way, if there is one, to prime new wood. I've always used oil based primer/undercoat followed by an oil based top coat.
For the last 20 years, I've been using high quality water base as a top coat.

My question is can I use a thinned 1st coat of tung oil or similar product, on the new wood, followed by oil base primer and then water based finish coat.

I'm looking for the best performance technique to have a long lasting paint job on wood fascia boards.

Thanks

Are you experiencing problems with your current system? What would you see as the purpose of the tung oil?
We oil prime all sides and topcoat with 100% acrylic.

I have never seen any issues with using Peel Bond by XIM. I have used this for raw wood for a few years and especially on fascia boards. It's the best latex bonding primer I have ever seen. Honestly, I think it may even out do oil primers... It's that good. UMA is another one of their products I love...

Seconded.

Peelbond is some awesome stuff. Not sure what the longevity is compared to oil, but I'm sure it's way up there. That stuff bonds paint like crazy, have a hard time cleaning brushes afterwards...that was proof in the pudding for me.

Another option if you don't want to use peel bond would be like an extreme bond primer (sw product). I'd use a bonding primer or oil like others have said...problem solved.

I've had great success using SW PrimeRx and XIM PeelBond after sanding exteriors where the paint started flaking or peeling.

Although I've never used either product for new raw wood, I don't see why it wouldn't be an excellent choice. Beyond its excellent adhesion, it also seals wood very well and could help extend the open time of faster drying paints.

I'm curious, but does anybody knows how the perm ratings for oil primers compare to peel bond style primers?
