Customer Questions & Answers

is Glidden gripper primer/sealer SANDABLE? When I put it on my (never painted) furniture grade plywood cabinet doors the surface becomes rough.

Your literature does not indicate that this paint is SANDABLE.

Will Gripper Primer Cover Sharpie pen marks?

We are buying a foreclosed home. Before they left, the former owners apparently let their daughter have a party where all her friends wrote "well wishes" in sharpie all over the bedroom walls. Way too much to try to scrub clean
Asked by: Chuck
Try removing it with acetone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holds true to its name "Gripper" I've been a handyman for fifteen years and this primer is the best I've used!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I purchased Glidden Gripper, at the recommendation of the paint expert at the New Hartford, CT Ho... I purchased Glidden Gripper, at the recommendation of the paint expert at the New Hartford, CT Home Depot, to use on my newly-constructed garage with pine clapboards. I had informed the paint expert that I would be applying Behr opaque stain over the Gripper. Within a few years, everything started to peel. Since each chip had Gripper on the back side, it became clear that the Behr Stain adhered well to the Gripper, the Gripper did not adhere to the new wood. The paint department at Home Depot had tinted the Gripper to make coverage more effective. Now I will probably need to sand blast or scrape the entire building. I do not know if the problem is with the advice i received from Home Depot or the Glidden Gripper. At this point, all I know is that the Gripper seemed to make things much worse.

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 5 out of 5 by from Covers Marker I tried this primer to cover dry erase, wet erase, and permanent marker that my 4 year old used to draw on the fireplace. I had no luck trying 91% isopropyl rubbing alcohol, Goof Off, or dish detergent and water. I did sand the wood a little (very little). It took about 4 coats of the primer to cover the marker. It could use a 5th coat of primer, but I think the white semi-gloss paint will finish it off nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Covered 80s style melamine well Used this to prime my ugly, 80s style melamine cabinets before painting. Worked great.

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 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.
