What type of mortar/thinset should I use over a Zinnser BIN sealed concrete slab if I want to lay porcelain tile?

Answer: 
Thank you for your interest in Zinsser B-I-N Shellac-Base Primer Ultimate Stain Blocker. The primer fully cures in 1-3 days. Lower temperatures, higher humidity, and the addition of tint will prolong dry and cure time. Allow more time at cooler temperatures. You will need to read the manufacture’s label on the mortar/thinset to see what product will best fit your needs.

exterior cedar trim

This question is from 1 gal. B-I-N Shellac-Based White Interior/Spot Exterior Primer and Sealer
Asked by
Ohio
Read all my Q&A
April 13, 2015
I am having an exterior chimney chase torn down to the frame and rebuilt. It will be done in cedar to match the other homes in the sub division and to keep it like the original. Is this primer suited for priming exterior cedar? I've seen many people say to use this product on forums, but it states here that it is for spot priming on exteriors. Can someone give me a definite answer please.

Answer: 
Use Zinsser oil-based Cover Stain as it has better workability. Zinsser Shellac-Based dries too quickly and brushes or rollers will get stiff if you are doing sustained work on a larger project. I suspect that is why the manufacturer recommends it for quick, spot exterior priming. I prefer Shellac when I can use it, but oil-base is more versatile. Both are great primers.

I'm getting ready to redo an outdoor, wood pergola. I'm replacing the cedar trim around the posts which has dry rot with redwood. The new redwood has a smooth finish and some knots. What Zinnser product would you recommend?

is it supposed to be watery?

The product is very watery, I applied the first coat to wood knots that had bled through my original water base primer, but I can still see them. Do I need to keep applying coats until they are not able to be seen? Or is it ready to paint because they are "sealed" now? Thanks

Answer: 
Yes, it's very watery or thin, but it covers well on walls. Might need a couple coats for wood knots. I painted over black marks on a white wall after just one coat of primer. Hope this helps.

Answer: 
Rust-Oleum Zinsser B-I-N Shellac-Based Primer and Sealer is an excellent interior stain killing primer. One coat effectively blocks stains, including water, nicotine, ink, crayon, marker, rust and smoke stains so they will not bleed into the topcoat. Some stains require a second coat. We recommend applying a second coat to knots in wood to ensure the knot is completely sealed before painting over it.

1 gal. B-I-N Shellac-Based White Interior/Spot Exterior Primer and Sealer is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for urine odor on Subfloor Removed carpet to install hardwoods in a living room and found that the previous owner's dogs had used the room as their own private toilet for years. There were literally stains covering the entire 150 sq ft room, and the urine stench was unbearable. After some research, I decided to roll on a coat of BIN Primer. Best decision I could have made. As soon as the primer dried, the urine odor was gone. Not just covered up, but gone. I literally put my nose within an inch of the floor and could not smell a thing. I was worried I'd have to replace the subfloor but BIN came to the rescue.

Purchased it on the recommendation of the Home Depot salesperson and it worked great. Had a room with very extensive (many years worth) cigarette smoke odor into the drywall, with a few stains and this product eliminated the odor and hid the black marks well. Wish I had used this in all the rooms as it made this one room look the best of all after painting. Dries very quickly, has a little strong odor during use so have windows wide open for fresh air (the odor disappears in a few hours). Would highly recommend this product, it's better than any other primer I've used, worth the cost. NOTE: This primer is very thin, it will easily drip off your brush or roller. It's also not easy to clean up, plan to trash your roller and brush or you'll be working hard to clean it (not water based). Since it was primer, I used inexpensive brush and roller, still covered well. Again, keep the windows open while using and NO flames or smoking around it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This stuff works I used this product on a concrete floor to block unbearable pet urine odor. Scrubbed the floor and used a wet vac to clean up. Let the floor dry then applied two coats of this product. Pet odor is gone. Ready for the carpet installers! It is toxic. Follow directions and use a mask!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works! Bought a condo and upon removing carpet and pad was horrified to find (and smell) several cat urine stains. I have a cat myself and didn't want her to follow in the previous owner's pet's bad habits. I did much online research and Bin came highly recommended. Used it on several areas, one of which was heavily concentrated. I applied two heavy coats (allowed time to dry in between coats) and no more urine smell! My cat was the true test. After new flooring was installed, I moved my cat in and she hasn't detected any smell!

Sprayed the floors with a product from the pet store and them painted the floors with Zinsser to seal the odor. Worked great. We have been in the house for two months and no odor. We also used it to cover an odor in the kitchen cabinets. We washed the inside with several disinfectants which did nothing. So, I painted the inside with Zinsser then covered that with a semi-gloss paint. Odor is gone from cabinets too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this primer This is an excellent primer where the extreme adhesion is needed for a mixed patchwork of old exposed plaster and old paint. Cleanup is reasonably easy using "Bioflame" alcohol, which is mixed ethanol/isopropyl alcohol - safer than other denatured alcohols which contain toxic methanol.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, just be sure to ventilate and/or wear a respirator Excellent product. Worked great covering 1960s wood paneling and urine odor in subfloor. Fumes are potent, so be prepared. While ventilation is good, I would also recommend getting a half-face respirator with OV/P100 cartridges - HD sells them and they are not complicated to use. You're worth it! With regards to applying the product itself, it dries to the touch extremely fast. When I did the first coat on the paneling, I was hoping I could go fast enough to wet-lap the brush and roller work like you would with traditional painting - nada. Not happening. The second time around, I did all the brush work first, which included edging around trim and priming all the grooves in the paneling. When priming the grooves, I feathered the overlap on the panels itself to limit brush marks. After the brush work, I went back and used a regular 3/8" nap roller. No noticeable brush marks, and only a few spots I need to sand to get rid of drips (oops - not a pro here, just a rookie DIYer). The walls look well prepared for paint!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for Priming, Covering & Sealing This product was highly recommended by several reviews and comments on other websites. I recently tried this product on my old kitchen cabinets. The cabinets were 40 years old with original stain and gloss finish. As advertised, the product was applied without any sanding or deglossing of the old finish. The product went on smoothly with foam rollers, covered very well, dried quickly, and has produced a beautiful surface for painting the top coat. The product also sands well and covers everything, including spackling, nail heads, torn paper, wood knots, and more. I also used it on my walls to hide blemishes. There is an odor from the shellac base, so you may want to ventilate the area when painting. I am very happy with B-I-N and will happily purchase it again for my next home interior painting project.
