Customer Questions & Answers

Can this primer be used to prime over a cinder block interior wall that has been painted with an oil based paint? Will it hold, or will it lift off?

Asked by: Rustycat
I used it on the cinder block walls in my basement over an oil-based paint and I have not experienced any problems in the two since. I probably should add that my basement is very dry.

Can I use a spray gun to apply this glidden gripper primer?

I have a HPLV spray gun and air compressor. Is it recommended that I spray on this gripper primer for a more smoother application? If so, what do I have to do to spray it properly? Should I dilute it and if so, with what and how much? I'm refinishing my maple kitchen cabinets with white paint.
Asked by: Eddie
Yes, but for gods sake clean your sprayer thuroughly after. This stuff is like glue. I love it, but would not spray it.

pianting my garge inside should i prime it first and is this product good for that.

Asked by: brown
If you are painting over new drywall this stuff is at good as it gets. You will never have to paint the inside of the garage again. If not concerned about the final finish there might be less expensive alternative though.

Does this product have a harsh odor?
Asked by: Anonymous
No, I found it to be low odor and smelled less than other primers I have used.

1 gal. Gripper White Primer Sealer is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 84.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best primer on the market! I was renovating a 1964 farm house with dark wood paneling. I needed to paint the paneling because ripping it down & putting up drywall was too expensive. I tried so many different primers & I can honestly say that Glidden Gripper was the very best. It took 4 to 5 coats of other primers to cover the dark paneling but I was able to get the job done with 1 good coat of glidden gripper with a light second coat in the darker seams. It filled in the cracks beautifully, saved me days of labor & a lot of money. The walls were so smooth that you can't even tell its paneling. Gripper will always be my first choice in primers!! Thank you for an amazing product!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Good I used this primer last night. I'm painting an old stained and lacquered armoire and I didn't want to have to sand before priming. The can does say to sand and prep properly but I previously tested on a spot and it held great. I did make sure the surface was clean and free from dust and oil. I was using an airless sprayer so I thinned this with water. This stuff is very very thick... It's a little tricky to get the consistency right. There are no thinning guidelines on the can so I was just winging it. It did cover really well and it turned out very nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from When I moved into my new home, the walls of the finished basement were painted a vibrant tangerin... When I moved into my new home, the walls of the finished basement were painted a vibrant tangerine! Gripper did the trick and provided the perfect neutral base for my new Behr Polished Pearl walls! Previously, I had used the other two top name brands in other rooms of the house with little success on walls not as deeply hued! I don't bother with the other big name primers any more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasantly surprised I was shocked (and still am) at how well this works! I wanted to refinish a big dark-stained chair but it has so many curves in the arms and nooks & crannies around the legs, I thought it would take me days just to sand it down everywhere. A very helpful salesman at HD recommended this and wow, it stuck to that chair! It's now three years later and it looks exactly the same as the day I finished it. One coat of Gripper, two coats basic white wall paint and voila, perfect "new" chair. If they allowed photos on here I'd share the before/after. Who knows how much time and elbow grease this saved. Great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great purchase for priming laminate pressboard cabinets I only sanded down the rough edges of the cabinets not the whole thing only because it is pressboard. I tried the 123 primer and it was thin going on so I didn't like that.This stuff is thick which helps it stick better and goes on great considering I didn't sand all that glossy stuff off the cabinets. After the primer, I painted over it with a semi gloss paint. I put the primer on with a brush to give a wood grain look then used a foam roller to apply another coat and then the paint. I used 2 layers of primer and paint since it was kitchen cabinets and I wanted to make sure no water gets through. The cabinets are easily wiped off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent and Oustanding Primer I have used many primer paints over the years. The Glidden Gripper indoor/outdoor primer is absolutely a great primer. Application is a dream, the consistency is perfect in that there is hardly any dripping or splatter when applying. Most applications only need one coat unless you have a wife like mine who always demands the second coat! Highly recommend this product. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I was confident that my purchase of Glidden would leave me very satisfied with the painting result. I have to say the paint delivered as promised and as I expected from Glidden. This is a time tested product and company. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great exterior primer Excellent primer for exterior wood trim. Great for priming interior walls that have been skimmed with joint compound , have a lot of patches, or surfaces that need a bonding primer. Good adhesion over most surfaces.
