Don't let the product name fool you
They should not call this "Gripper". It has created a mess for me and my kitchen cabinets and I am unsure how to resolve the problems this primer has caused. I should not have trusted the name

    PPG makes it in quarts and gallon size. I should have picked up the gallon size because a quart was not enough.

    I was a little hesitant to use this on non-sanded surfaces before painting but it worked really well! I used it for my staircase banners without sanding and the semi-gloss top coat adhered nicely.

    Certainly the highest quality bonding primer I have experienced using in my 40 years in business. With high coverage and easy application, with exceptional hiding qualities. A primer that I know that will give me the end results that I can rely on to achieve a quality finish.

    Primer has excellent bonding and stabilizing slightly chalking surfaces. However, recommend scrubbing/washing wall with soap and water to take of majority of the dust and chalking paint to ensure a good paint job.

      SERIOUSLY? YOU WANT PEOPLE TO CALL PP&G TO DISCUSS HOW LOUSY THIS PRODUCT IS?
      This material is worse than bad, it now has ruined hundreds of dollars of metal rain gutter. I wet sanded the gutter with a degreaser and thoroughly rinsed and dried it before applying and this stuff does NOT stick. Mild abrasion with a fingernail scrapes it right off. Look at the pictures. No way close to the former product by Glidden. I was a union journeyman painter with decades of experience that gives me some credibility on what it should do. Shameful that Home Depot continues to sell this garbage. I too have left negative reviews and they disappear as mentioned by others. I have used Glidden on almost any paintable surface with good result. This PP&G stuff has only performed on raw wood but even that is suspect. If it fails, then I have double the work to fix it. It is hateful to do hours of extensive prep work only to have it mean nothing,..... no "mean nothing" implies that there isn't a cost for a failure. This is wasted time and wasted money for something that is going to be almost impossible to fix. It is an insult. I am saving this review on Word so that I can post it regularly until Home Depot holds PP&G accountable.

        I was very impressed with its “gripping” power on both PVC pipes and FRP (fiberglass reinforced plastic) panels. After priming with Gripper, I used 2 coats of regular acrylic paint. I am very happy with the results!!!

        Works great on drywall that has had some of the surface ripped due to wall paper removal etc. We were able to keep it from peeling and acheive a flawless surface after applying this product before adding skim coat. We also applied it after the skim coat as a primer. We had tried a few other products and this one gave us the best results.
