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.
Asked by: Anonymous
Agree with the home depot answer man. Primer will raise the grain on even a smooth sanded surface. I was given this by an employee at Home depot to refinish old 1980s pine furniture. Light sanding on polyurethaned furniture to help adhesion of primer. Apply primer (it is thick - use a roller brush to lessen streaking). Lightly sand with fine sandpaper (I used an electric hand sander carefully). Then applied Behr paint & primer interior satin with a roller (store tinted black). My entire bedroom set turned out beautifully. Slightly distressed from small dents. If you want to hide blemishes use wood filler BETWEEN primer and paint. Allowing the primer to fill the holes first - the primer also helps the wood filler adhere better. Set of new contractor pack of handles and furniture.

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
Have you tried removing them with pure alcohol? (The 93.3 pure alcohol would do fine but don't use the so called rubbing alcohol since is only 70% alcohol and the rest is water. Walgreen by the way) It will do the job but since the alcohol evaporates too fast, do not wipe a large area at once, other wise you'll end up with a big blob of stain across the wiped area. Instead do the wipe one small section at a time. You may end up with a very faint written words but then again, you won't need to apply as many coats of paint to cover the "well wishes". You can also try acetone but personally I think is too strong to breath in a enclosed area. I did tried it but it was too strong for me and it leaves a messier spot to remove. Hope this helps.

Can it be used over vinyl wallpaper?

The wallpaper is on securely, without stripping it off, we just want to paint over it for a new look.
Asked by: Flicka
When painting over wallpaper I coat all seams with oil based primer. The oil does not make the seams come unglued like a latex primer or paint does. Next step I do is drywall mud over the seams and sand flat. Then prime (at least mudded areas) and paint. It looks like a new wall when I'm done.

1 qt. Gripper White Primer Sealer is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 58.
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 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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile primer with excellent adhesion. We have used Gripper for many years. Coverage is excellent and it will stick to most anything. Highly recommended if changing from a previous oil based finish to an acrylic; typical condition is using an acrylic semi-gloss over existing oil based paint on interior trim and doors. Have been called many times to fix this problem, because the new acrylic can be peeled off with just your finger nails. One of the few primers meant for "hot Stucco" surfaces.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dark purple dining room with green trim Yes, dark purple dining room, with green trim in 30 year old house. Was not sure how many coats it was going to take before painting it bungalow beige. It only took two coats to turn this hideous room into a beautiful dining room. Great coverage [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
