Is this primer breathable?

Is this primer OK for priming brick in situations where you do not want residual moisture to be trapped inside the brick?
Asked by: kit700
Dear kit700, Thank you very much for your question. BEHR PREMIUM PLUS® Multi-Surface Primer & Sealer No. 436 is a vapor barrier primer and should not be used as a breathable primer. This primer is designed to keep water vapors from travelling through the primer film. Good luck with your project.

was told this was a paint + primer. Sounds like I need to apply THEN paint over the top. Is this the case?

Asked by: Evomr228
Hi Evomr228, Thanks for writing in! The No. 436 Mulit-Surface Primer is a sealer and must be top coated with paint. Using this product will help create a thin barrier over the surface, allowing you to get full coverage of with less top coats of paint. Hope this helps, and good luck on your project! Best, Jeanette P.

Customer Reviews

1-Qt. Multi-Surface Exterior Primer and Sealer is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT product! Love this product! We purchased a home a little over a year ago that appears to have not seen paint in a very long time. The exterior of the house had extensive areas with mildew, old paint peeling, or completely gone, and the paint that was left was chalky and streaky looking. For those reasons I decided to prime first and then use Behr ULTRA (paint and primer) over the primer. After thoroughly cleaning the house, removing peeling paint and damaged areas, I applied one coat of tinted primer. I cannot tell you what a different this product made. It is very forgiving of uneven areas, goes on smoothly and evenly, dries quickly and to a nice finish. People I don't even know from the neighborhood were stopping in front of the house to tell me how great it looked. I told them it was only primer, that the paint was going to be a different color…they just couldn't believe it. On that note, they also couldn't believe that I was painting the house by myself. It's a 3200 sf cape cod and I had the front (minus the trim) done in 3 hours…that's how easy this product is to work with. I'm not a house painter by trade, I'm a retired woman in pretty good shape. lol Anyway, I'll be adding another review for Behr ULTRA, which I am almost equally impressed with. As others have noted, it does stick. I was using "blue" gloves most of the time, but still managed to get paint on myself here and there…it sticks. I'm not complaining about that, though. One wants the product to stick. Based on my experience/results, I couldn't be more pleased and highly recommend the primer. Time will tell on how long it holds up, although I'm guessing it will last. The house looks like a completely different place! Thank you, Behr, for a wonderful product! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from deck primer loved this primer. priming my deck railing and spindles so I can paint them with floor and porch paint. some of the posts were rather poor condition (looks) and this primer was quick drying and coverage was better than expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Goes on smooth and covers well. I have used this primer on several projects. Several years ago I applied this product to aluminum siding using a sprayer and then a top coat of Behr paint. The siding still looks great. Just recently I used the Behr exterior primer on a solid fir exterior door. The primer went on nice and smooth. With the smooth primer I was able to apply a smooth top coat. The door looks perfect. I would recommend this product to any body looking for a good exterior water based primer. Clean up was easy too. I would recommend using a brush comb to get all the paint out of your brush though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best paint I have used the exterior and interior painter and aprimer and have had excellent results. My garage door was painted 4 years ago and it still looks great. I also only use behr paint on my deck and interior surfaces. I have tried other brands and they di not have the same quality or durability. I am off to buy more today.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Primer for exterior Worked so well. Our exterior was powdery and we power washed it first then primed it and painted it. 5 years later it still looks brand new!
