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!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by WornOut14 Great basic primer
Sprayed out a newly drywalled basement - about 2750 sq ft. Used airless sprayer with 0.15 tip. Did first half with Behr primer and second half with this Kilz primer. The Kilz was clearly a better covering product. Less odor, airborne mist, and dry paint dust on the floor than with the Behr. Sprayed well with no thinning. It recommended 0.17-0.21 tip size, but my 0.15 never clogged or hesitated. I would not hesitate to use this product again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by spanky 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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by picknwiggle for use on new drywall
PVA primer is intended for use on new drywall to seal the porous surface before texturing. Some negative reviews here and under the 5-gal bucket seem to have tried to use it as a stain-hiding product or to cover up old paint. If that's what you are trying to do, then you need to spend the extra $$ and get kilz original or kilz2, or another stain blocking primer. Do a little research and spend a little more on the right product for the job, and you will save yourself some trouble.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike 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!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by davenport Great Primer
We bought this primer specifically for use on new drywall, which is the intended purpose of a PVA product. The paint evened out the wall textures between mud and paper on the first coat. Of course you can see some areas of lighter or heavier coverage from rolling (you really need to look hard) but this is a primer not the top coat. It's main purpose is to seal new drywall and provide a consistent texture, it does that well. The clean up of this product is amazing, all the paint came off our hands and drips came off clothes with a little soap and warm water.
One other great thing where we applied a second coat; this primer goes on grey and dried to pure white. The greyness helps you see painted vs unpainted spots so you can get consistent coverage.
Tools: 3in straight brush for cut in, quality 3/8 nap roller.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by viannqueen Highly reccomend
I have to say I was very happy with this product. We primed our basement with this primer utilizing an airless sprayer and a 515 spray tip. This product self levels like a dream! My husband isn't the greatest at catching drips and lets just say that he went back to touch up some spots on moldings 30 minutes after he had sprayed and just made a goopy mess in a few small areas with a brush. I wasn't looking forward to having to spend forever sanding down those problem areas. I was very surprised to come back the next day and see how well those areas had self leveled with this product requiring very little sanding. I would highly recommend, though be aware that the drywall tends to soak up this product. We ended up using 4- 5 gallon buckets for our 1500 s.f. basement.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kelseanixon 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!
