I need a good primer to cover peeling paint on fiberglass/plastic/vinyl surfaces - 123 or peel stop? Which would you recommend?

Zinsser peel stop primer seems perfect for the job, but I wasn't sure whether it would adhere to the same variety of surfaces as the 123 primer. Any recommendations?
Asked by: bodhi
I definitely would not use this product if you are concerned about the possibility of seeing the paint peel.

How many coats is recommended to be applied to exterior plywood that will be outside in rain and snow conditions?
Asked by: Chip
Happy to help! In most cases, only one coat of Rust-Oleum Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Primer and Sealer is necessary to prime most surfaces. If excessive absorption occurs over very porous substrates a second coat may be necessary. After one hour you can apply your topcoat.

can I use Bulls Eye 1-2-3 to prime a wall that is covered with oil-based paint?

Asked by: Joe
I just did it 3 nights ago and all the prime can be scratched off easily. Terrible product. It does not do what it says on the products.

Bulls Eye 1-2-3 1 gal. White Water Based Interior/Exterior Primer and Sealer is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 30.

Have used over and over to prime both latex AND oil-painted surfaces - drywall, door trim, baseboard, cabinetry. No need to sand first, even if it's a glossy oil-painted surface. Great job of covering dark colors and stains, too. You can put latex, oil or alkyd paints on top of it, no problem at all. It's thick -- so stir well before using. If it's too thick to roll smoothly, add a little water. I use a mini roller on door trim for fast coverage, then tip off with a brush so no roller stippling remains. Dries fast -- about an hour. Then you can paint. WALLPAPER REMOVAL If you're removing wallpaper -- once you've got the paper off, roll on a coat of Zinsser Gardz to lock down any remaining wallpaper glue so it won't reactivate when it comes into contact with water-based paint. Gardz is VERY runny and VERY hard to get off floors once it dries, so cover floors first. You do NOT want to spill that stuff and let it dry. THEN -- throw a coat of Bullseye 123 on top of the Gardz coat and you're back in business.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent primer for priming over oil based paint I use this primer for priming over old oil based paint. It sticks good so your new water based paint won't peel off. If I have any water stains I use BIN primer on the stain first.

I purchased this for priming a room with painted drywall and stained rough cedar for three reasons: Covers cedar tannin, light water marks, and crayon marks. All three bled through two coats of this product. Zinsser was nice enough to refund the price of one of the gallons, but I had to paint a 24 x 24 room a second time. I went back to oil-based odorless Kilz. One coat covered it all with no bleed through.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Sealing Primer--for the proper purposes I find Bulls Eye an excellent primer sealer for any type of previously painted surface, such as previously finished drywall and plaster. It adheres well, dries quickly and now with a fairly low VOC level it's easier for me to use (I need a respirator for certain alkyds). It is thin, but I've never had a problem with it sealing the surface or any bleed through--and that's what I use it for. That said, what is under it may well show even if it doesn't bleed through. I deal with this by having the product tinted to the finish color before applying it, and then if necessary applying a third topcoat, not a second Bulls-Eye coat.

Three coats over old water stains on my ceiling and the stains are still very visible. This product MAY work just fine as a standard primer, but I would not recommend it as a stain blocker. Time to try another product...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kitchen cabinets We used Bulls Eye to prime our kitchen cabinets before painting them white. We never sanded the finish off the cabinets and the primer adhered perfectly. We have a two and a four year old who are very hard on the cabinets and we haven't had any problems. I recommend this primer to anyone looking for a strong primer that will last.
