Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by zuejay 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Red 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Char so far so good
Remodeling an old home, 1860, that has years of pet urine in 2 of the rooms. We have a cat and he was able to smell where previous pets have urinated years before we moved in and turned those areas into his cat box, yuck.. I have used OdoBan to no avail but it did smell 100% better to me. While remodeling I decided to sand the wood floor, scrub with the OdoBan then put down 2 coats of BIN primer. We have had new padding and carpet put down and no issues with the kitty using those areas as his kitty box any longer and it has been 2 months now, yahoo. If I found just one mess the kitty would have been out of here and I love my kitty but wont put up with that mess and odor so BIN saved my kitty :) and we all live in a clean smelling home.
This product was easy to apply, just a little watery but that was not an issue for me.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PeterH845 The best for pet urine
We use this on subfloors after pulling carpet or tile. We have sanded, then sealed hardwood with this product, the only way to salvage them, though you end up top coating them with paint. We like Muralo floor paint here on the east coast, butt brands sold here and at blue are acceptable.

We recently had an upstairs bath resurfaced and the company that was doing the work forgot to put the tub drain back in before they ran the water. The overflow ended up on our living room ceiling. Through the advice of a professional painter I went with this product.
At first I cringed at the cost, but this is a case of "You get what you pay for." Much to my surprise it only took ONE coat to cover the heavy damage.
I was blown away and another plus was the very minimal odor. This is hands down the best on the market iny opinion.

I've used this primer twice now. The first time I removed carpet in a room with cat odor that seeped through to the floor. I put down 1 coat on the bare-wood floors and the odor was gone. The second time I was painting wood doors that were just clear coated 25-years ago. I lightly sanded the doors then primed. It took 1-coat to seal the tannin bleed. Do not trust any water-based primer to seal tannin bleed, it won't work. Be aware this primer is very thin and may leave a lot of drips. Also the odor is strong. Open windows and use a fan for proper ventilation. Its pricey but worth it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mes44317 Only way to paint Partical Board.
In the days of old we used to paint things made from partial board with oil based primers before applying a finish coat, but since the EPA has banned oil based paints this is the only option for priming partial board. It works great does not raise the grains on the partial board so you can achieve a smooth professional finish with less work and time. I have used it to cover smells during remodels and it does that very well as well. So if your looking for a replacement for oil primer when working with partial board this is the best substitute I have been able to fine.

I followed the instructions and cleaned some mildew stains off of the ceiling above our shower and let it dry for several days. Then I primed the ceiling with this product with the intention of using a mildew resistant paint over it. The day after I primed it I went to paint the ceiling and it was peeling, which was never the case in the past. I scraped and re-primed it again thinking I may not have stirred the product sufficiently, same thing. I was not doing a large area so it was not a big deal, but still frustrating none the less.
