Customer Questions & Answers

Tinting

I need a tinted oil-based primer/sealer to prepare a subfloor for a charcoal grey paint. Can this one be tinted?
Asked by: LJWC
Yes, the product can be tinted. No too easy to color match, but if it is a first coat on a new project it should suffice.

Does it fill and level surface?

does it fill and level syrface
Asked by: nic
This product does fill smaller voids. Prior to using this product, fill all voids with "MH Ready Patch." MH Ready Patch is available at Home Depot. It is an interior / exterior product that applies, sands and dries in 30 minutes; deeper voids require more drying time. Unlike spackle or joint compound, MH Ready Patch shrinks very little. For smaller voids, it won't shrink at all. For larger voids, a second application will be required, but never a third.

what top coats are compatible

What type of top coat paints are compatible with this primer? Do I have to use an oil based paint or can I use latex paint? I am afraid that if I use latex, it will peel off.
Asked by: mongo
The product above is oil-based. You can cover oil-based paints with latex and other "primer + finish coat" paints that are either oil-based or water-based paints, but not the other way around. Meaning you cannot use a water-based primer and cover it with an oil-based paint.

Can this primer be sanded?

Asked by: GVM
Yes, it can be sanded, but be careful to let it dry thoroughly and only use a 220 grit paper. Too much sanding and the product will be removed. Any high spots on the surface should be leveled by sanding or grinding before applying the product.

1-qt. White Cover Stain Oil-Based Interior/Exterior Primer and Sealer (Case of 6) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 34.

Only product I know that works first time every time to cover all types of stains on all types of materials. Example, tar was used to coat the inside of a brick flower box no longer wanted by the customer. Flower box was removed, leaving the tar covered, exterior, cinder block wall of the house exposed. How to remove the tar to paint the wall; impossible on a cinder block surface. This product did the job by covering the tar, then a white, flat, latex house paint was used to match the house exterior. This repair is still in good shape today, some 12 years later. No better testimony to a products value than this, seemingly impossible, situation. Unfortunately, I have moved some distance away from the project stated above and cannot provide a photo, but I would if I could.

I bought this oil base primer primarily to seal new glazing in my storm windows. I was very surprised to see how fast it starts to dry - that may be helpful in other applications, but made my job much harder. I had trouble getting the correct coverage, the paint started to dry on my brush, and even started skimming over in the can. I have used oil base primer on the same application before and never had this problem.

It took two coats to properly cover the old paint (forest green) but I expected that. The paint cured very quickly, and I imagine I could have set the glass and putty within four hours of application. I ended up waiting more than eight hours after the second coat, though, and the glazing compound adhered to the frame well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stain cover This product was recommended by the awesome employee who works in the paint Dept. at our local Home Depot. He is so knowledgeable so I took his advice and used it on a ceiling stain that has been there for years. I used two coats just to be sure and it worked great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effectively Sealed Water Stains This primer effectively blocked water stains from bleeding through the finish coat after I repainted some water stained areas on my bathroom ceiling. It dried fast and I was able to complete the repaint job in less than 1 day. I highly recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from water stain fix Had a couple of water stains on my ceiling that i needed to fix. Usually go with a shellac based product but because i was working overhead, went with oil base instead. To be safe, i went with two coat. Ceiling all painted and no stains have come through.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best oil based primer Use this when nothing else will stick. I usually use this primer when painting over slick oil based finishes that water based gripper won't stick to.
