Customer Questions & Answers

I want to prime my walls before hanging wallpaper, most wallpaper adhesive say you have to use oil based primers.

If it will work how long do I have to wait before wallpapering?
Asked by: bunnyslayer
Yes, Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Primer and Sealer can be applied before using wallpaper. However, for ease of application and possibility of removal in the future, we recommend using Zinsser Shieldz Primer and Sealer. This product is designed specifically for your application and creates the perfect surface for hanging wallpaper. It also provides Zinsser's® exclusive Mold & Mildew Shield™. Both products will be fully cured and ready for top coating with wallpaper after 24 hours. http://www.homedepot.com/p/Zinsser-1-gal-Shieldz-Universal-Water-Based-White-Primer-and-Sealer-4-Pack-2501/204623738

Asked by: Jtd5677
Rust-Oleum Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 is not formulated to seal odor. We recommend Rust-Oleum Zinsser B-I-N Shellac-Based Primer for the job. http://www.homedepot.com/p/Zinsser-1-gal-B-I-N-Shellac-Based-White-Interior-Spot-Exterior-Primer-and-Sealer-Case-of-4-00901/202058883

Does this primer cover cigarette odors?

There are multiple rooms in my new house in which the previous owners used to be smokers. Will this primer cover cigarette odors?
Asked by: LetsCoverTheCigOdor
The Zinsser BullsEye 123 Water-Based Primer does not cover cigarette odors. The only product Rust-Oleum has that will cover cigarette odors would be the Zinsser BIN Shellac Based Primer.

How soon can I paint over it?

I got so much on the outside of the can, I can't read the directions. When will it be ready to paint over? Thanks!
Asked by: CBK
Wow! I'm glad I found this, hope you consider editing the label. The way that I read it, I was pretty sure it would dry to touch in 30 min, a second coat (primer) could be applied in one hour and top coat (paint) after seven days. The can states that it cures in seven days. If I wasn't in a pinch for time I would've just waited a week to apply paint.

Can I have this product tinted

I am using primer on exterior of house and plan to use a tan paint for final project. Tinting the primer would help final coat of paint as not to need so many coats to cover white primer.
Asked by: Dede

Bulls Eye 1-2-3 2-gal. White Water Based Interior/Exterior Primer and Sealer is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 46.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Zinsser/Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Water Based Interior/Exterior Primer and Sealer (White) Two coats are required for cover of stained wood to prevent bleed through and two coats are necessary for complete coverage on new wood. I haven't tried it on concrete block wall, yet. I have some oil based paint I've been using for that. The directions include surfaces the 1-2-3 may be used on and it includes concrete and steel. I have some new wood coated and still without top coat that is in excellent condition after two years of harsh winters and hot summers. It's a very thick paint and should be diluted with Floetrol. The 2 gallon pale gives a small price break over two 1 gallon containers. My opinion: Best water based primer I've ever used, to my recall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Basic Primer I used this primer on bare wood: Poplar trim and birch plywood. It provides a good base coat for paint. It dries fairly fast for a latex/water based product and sands easily (1 coat used). Sanded with 150 grit. Overcoating with a good semi-gloss latex enamel gave an excellent finish (2 coats). I sprayed it with a Graco airless sprayer, as it was a large project. Using the 2 gallon size, it's a great buy. It worked as well in my application as the Paint Store brand (which was twice the price). I think for faster turn-around, the shellac based product is superior and from what I have read has better stain hiding. I can wait overnight before sanding and finish coating.

We used to use Kilz regularly but started using Zinsser in the last couple of years. Much better value for the money and the primer goes on smoothly, cleans up easily and has bonded to the paints we use. For tougher jobs we get the oil based primer from Zinsser and have also had great results.

Normally I buy Kilz primer, but my contractor suggested I check out Zinsser primer. It not only does the same job but the Zinsser price per gallon in the 2 Gallon container was much cheaper than Kilz, but also lower than the Zinsser price per gallon in the 5 gallon container.

I needed to cover up nicotine stains in a rental apartment. Next time, however, I would definitely have someone clean the wood panel walls first. Worked great on the cabinets.
