Answer: 
Hello Jen,
Thanks for your question. This product is a primer and is not designed to be used as a topcoat, as it has different properties than a topcoat of paint does such as washability and overall durability.
Best wishes for your project!

Answer: 
It can, but I don't think it should. It goes on thick so it would cover everything nicely in a flat white. Over time I don't think it would look as good as if you put another coat of higher gloss paint over it, but depending on your needs you could probably just use the PVA if its for a closet or basement or something like that.

Answer: 
Yes this can be used as paint. I have painted several garages with just this. I would not recommend it as the finish coat for interior walls but it is perfect for a quick spray!

Answer: 
Hi RG,
Thanks for your question! PVA stands for Poly-Vinyl Acetate. As an emulsion in water, PVA emulsions are used as adhesives for porous materials. It is used as a primer to seal porous surfaces to be painted usually new drywall or plaster.

Hello ortega13,
Thanks for your question. Depending on such factors as the porosity of the surface and how the product is applied (means and method), it'll cover between 1250 and 2000 square feet per 5-gallon bucket (or 250-400 square feet per gallon).
Best wishes for your project!

Answer: 
Hello Asking,
Thanks for your question. That's right--Kilz PVA Primer is only designed for new and bare drywall. Kilz 2 Latex Primer is a good alternative for when the walls have an existing coating.
Well wishes for your project!

Answer: 
Hello and thanks for your inquiry. If the walls are already painted, then we recommend you use our KILZ 2 Latex (water-based) primer instead of the PVA. PVA is specially designed to seal new unpainted drywall.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 36 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Must buy for covering new drywall In the process of refinishing our basement and a friend recommended I use this before the Behr goes on. It was pretty inexpensive so I went for it. I seriously could not be more pleased with the results. The paint went on easily and covered very well. It initially goes on gray which makes it easier to see any missed spots. It dries white, leaving you with the perfect base layer. Highly recommend this product, it seems like it let me use less of the color to go on top because it covered the drywall/mud so well. April 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome Product Bought this primer after reading rave reviews and very happy I did covered new drywall very well and almost looks good enough not even have to paint again would recommend to anyone very happy customer. August 22, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A Quality Coat of Primer When building my home I looked around for a good drywall primer. After talking with others and testing a couple of cheap primers, nothing when on as great as PVA Primer. I shot it on straight out of the bucket using a 517 tip, no thinning, and it dried rather smooth with great coverage on new drywall. After dried I lightly sanded, hit very few thin spots, and that was all. This primer is the real deal. May 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product No odor at all! went on with a roller and coverage was excellent! slight grey tint to it, but dries super white in very little time! I will buy this product again and will highly recommend it to others! July 16, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Spraying ceilings It works well over old drywall to..i sprayed acomplete house but the only thing it will bleed through on old drywall so you have to go with the kilz original in some places before applying the kilz PVA January 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This rocks (compared to Behr Drywall primer) Bought a 5gal Kilz Pro and a few Behr Drywall Primer 1gal buckets for a large basement job. I ran out of the Kilz product half way into the project so decided to use the Behr next. The Kilz dried up to be a beautiful white and Behr after 12hrs of drying time shows the joint compound underneath. Disappointed with Behr product even though it was more expensive. Kilz PRO Rocks for fresh Drywall! August 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good stuff Was one of the cheapest 5 gallon buckets of flat white but covers really well and goes on easy, even over high gloss paint. I tried to paint yellow latex over high gloss purple and the yellow beaded up like water on treated wood and the purple was still visible after 2 coats. The kilz went on clean and smooth and stuck well. I put it on kinda thick but only needed one coat. It's nice and bright too. I used it as ceiling paint as well and it worked great. April 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I always use this brand! I do a lot of DIY projects such as touching up old furniture I find in various thrift shops. I love using this after sanding for a smooth base. It works very well to fill in scratches. Then Im ready to paint and make it pretty! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] April 12, 2015
