Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Solution for Problem Walls Original Zinsser B-I-N pigmented shellac stain-killing primer-sealer is a fantastic product. If you are painting previously wallpapered walls, it is ESSENTIAL to a good paint finish. Although this product has a high odor during application, it dries quickly (within minutes) and can be recoated in 45 minutes. In most cases, the room is ready to recoat by the time you are finished sealing, working in the same direction. B-I-N gives a diamond-hard finish that masks many small imperfections, and seals any residual adhesive, preventing the new paint surface from blistering and peeling. B-I-N can also be used to seal solid wallpaper or paper-coated paneling prior to painting with good success. I highly recommend this product! August 3, 2007
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Have the Can Shaken at the Store The primer has the consistency of milk. When I opened the can it was separated and required about ten minutes of stirring to get all the solids off the bottom and into suspension. The primer is still thin and prone to running. Being thin, it lays well for a smooth base. It is a tenacious primer, and very difficult to clean up once dry. I will use it again whenever putting a water-based paint over an existing oil-based finish. January 25, 2015
