Q:Will this work well on exterior porcelain tiles?
by|Mar 1, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Hi Danny, thanks for your question. As it turns out, we don't recommend our Multi-Surface Primer on porcelain tiles, as it may not adhere. Instead, it's best to use our Bonding Primer on your project to promote adhesion before applying your topcoat. Have a great day! -Christina

    Q:Will this cover wood trim that has polyurethane top coat

    Answer This Question

    A:  Hi Shell, thank you for your question. The Multi-Surface Primer and Sealer No. 436 can be used over polyurethane in good condition. The surface should be sound, clean, and scuff sanded to promote adhesion if the finish is glossy. Good luck with your project! -Giovanna

          Used to seal concrete stairs & porch after recementing. Adhere well & the member that helped me with color matched the color perfectly to blend in same color as foundation. I will be buying more of this product for remaining foundation work.

            peeled off
            Used it on some stained and varnished doors but didnt bind properly. Takes more than one coat to block stains but didnt block all stains.

              Worst quality by far of any primer on the market
              Bought a gallon to primer and paint doors. Opened up the can and it was completely separated with a layer of semi solid material at the bottom. No amount of mixing with a paint mixer and drill got it to consistency even after 5 minutes at full speed. Also Lays down ultra thin so impossible to build up layers. Never should have bought it. Would have been worth driving the extra hour to get Sherwin Williams primer.

              Hi DoorPainter, thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that the primer was solid at the bottom even after stirring it. This is not normal, and I can understand your disappointment. Please reach out to us directly if you need further assistance. Our customer care team is happy to help you! -Giovanna Behr
                It was ok. Definitely need to apply 2 coats.

                Terrible
                like many other one star reviews, after several months (not days or weeks), primed walls still "feel" a little tacky and not dry after two months. tried masking a small portion of the ceiling that has this primer on first, then Behr ceiling paint on top. Ceiling was primed and painted over 2 months ago. Pulled green tape off after 10 seconds to readjust and and either Behr paint pulled away from Behr primer or both came off from the bare joint compound. Does not seal plaster/joint compound. Use a quality PVA instead of this.

                Hi Frustrated, thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that the primer felt tacky after two months and that it peeled off so easily. This is not normal, and I can understand your disappointment. The primer can be used on cured plaster without any issues. Please reach out to us directly so that we can get more details about your project and assist. Our Customer Care team is happy to help! -Giovanna Behr
                  Quality Primer For Sure!
                  Used on new veneer plastered walls and ceilings in my new above garage master bed/bath/office suite addition. Also on partially plastered (seams & screw holes) blueboard walls/ceiling in my garage which were fire taped for code/safety. Prior to painting I used heavy duty fans to assist in the drying of the plaster for 1-2 weeks before applying this primer. I did 2 coats everywhere. This primer went on easily and adhered to the plaster walls way better than I expected. Would and will use again.

                    Great primer
                    Great primer, covers nicely even with just one layer, much better with two. Basically, no-odor which makes the job much manageable and easier, dries fast and the white in it is as beautifully bright as the white paint. Very happy with this primer.

                    Best exterior primer I've used.
                    I've used this # 436 Primer for years on various applications, and am amazed at how well it adheres. I once applied it to (plastic) house wrap that I had used temporarily on a leaky roof. The primer was still adhering when I removed the wrap 2 years later. For another application where the final colour was to be a middle grey, I got Home Depot to tint the batch a light grey (as dark as they would tint it). The can label used to say "Exterior"; this latest one now says "Interior/Exterior". Only complaint: The label's safety and usage directions are in a small font that's hard to read. Improvement sorely needed.

                    For the most part cover over my God awful stripes....
                    For the most part cover over my God awful stripes. But used a lot more primer than anticipated to cover them. Some places you can still see shadow of them 17 foot area took 2/3 of a gallon. Said usage should be 250 - 400 sq ft.
