Hi smitty,
Thanks for your question! Yes, KILZ MAX can be sprayed with an airless spray with fluid pressure of 2,500-3,200 psi. It should have a 0.015"=0.021" spray tip with 60 mesh filter.

Answer: 
Hi Speedy,
Thanks for your question! We highly recommend that glossy finishes be sanded even lightly first before applying the primer. This will ensure better adhesion of the primer to the paneling surface.

Is this better or not quite as good as the Original Kilz Oil-based?

This question is from MAX 5-gal. White Water-Based Interior Primer, Sealer and Stain-Blocker
Asked by
Grand Haven, MI

October 27, 2015
I just bought a house that had smokers and cats. It smells terrible and the walls and ceilings have nicotine stains. A painter friend of mine said to use Kilz original and not to waste my time with latex primers. I would like to have the best result, but, prefer water-based paint because I have chemical sensitivities. Also, would Max be recommended over Original oil in the high humidity shower/ bathroom area where mold has started?

Hello TJ and thank you for your inquiry. Both KILZ Max (water based) and KILZ Original (oil based) will work well to block the pet and nicotine odors.

Hello TJ and thank you for your inquiry. Both KILZ Max (water based) and KILZ Original (oil based) will work well to block the pet and nicotine odors. Oil based primers (and paints) are well-established especially to deal with water stains and pros usually prefer the oil based. However, KILZ MAX is a new formulation that is designed to block severe stains and odors at equal performance to oils and shellacs. The main advantage of KILZ MAX is the water base will mean easier clean-up, lower odor and VOC levels. However for those advantages, it also costs about 2X the KILZ Original cost. Regarding applying MAX over Original in shower or bathroom area, this is not recommended. Mold should be removed completely and surface clean/dry before attempting new primer and paint. For the bathroom area, we would recommend KILZ Premium primer topped off with a paint that has a mildew resistant claim. Read Less

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 71 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Just OK I used this during a home renovation where there were cigarette stains and a heavy odor. Not to mention crayon marks, etc. on the wall from kids. I put on 3 coats of this stuff using a sprayer after first prepping the rooms by cleaning as best I could. In some of the worst rooms, the dingy color still bled through. It wasn't until I applied 2 coats of Behr Ultra paint that those spots mostly, if not completely disappeared. It seems to have at least done a decent job of eliminating odor and for that I give it 3 stars. If your main reason for buying this is to cover up stains on the wall, I'd recommend looking elsewhere. The cost of the MAX just isn't justified for the results. April 26, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good product fast Shipping Good product and shipped to home fast. A bit pricey, but does a good job covering the cigarette smell left by the former owners of the house. May 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome stain blocker and sealer!!! I used this at my grandparents place they just moved into recently- they had a plywood shed on their front covered porch that needed to match the exterior house color. One coat of this product, 1 hour later was able to cover effortlessly with Behr Ultra Exterior satin paint! They were happy, I was happy because it took very little effort and time, and I enjoyed visiting and having coffee in between steps. Thank you Kilz- this primer really works like advertised, blocking oily stains and dirt and allowing me to cover in one coat of paint.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good sealer and bonding primer. I've used this twice over the past few jobs. First job was a smoker's house at least 10 years. The walls were flat paint so no chance of washing. The kilz max waterborne sealed it perfectly. I did let it dry overnight before top coating. I have just tried it out on cabinets and it was dry and able to sand within the hour! Powders up very nicely, bonded well. Tips: stir it very well and often. It can dry out so move rather quickly. Do not mix with any other paint! If you cover a water stain on ceiling. Two coats and let it dry overnight before topcoat. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] July 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Happy with the product!!! I've used and tried a few different primers, kilz is the best. Easy to use, low cost, great coverage, and on a recent furniture project, killed the smell in one of the the drawers. :) [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This is a miracle product!!! Oh my goodness! I can't say enough great things about this product. I used it to block odor and stains that were left after the carpet was removed from my wood stairs. Now, no stains and the odor is completely gone. I am amazed at how well this worked for me. I recommend Kilz to everyone. It absolutely does what it says it will. Awesome!!!!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Blocks stains When painting over stains caused by mildew, rust, or other pigments- KILZ will block bleeding. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] July 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Eliminates pet odors My husband and I bought a home that was "pet friendly" before being vacant for a couple years. When we removed the carpet to install new flooring we painted all the sub flooring and baseboards with kilz max. It's easy to use and removed all the musty and pet smells.
