              Terrible results, used exactly per directions
              See my photos. Uneven marks, left white discoloration, brush and roller marks was like cottage cheese after it was mixed. Not sure why all the rave, this stuff was terrible. I prepped my wood, sanded, and look at the photos. Awful application and results.

              We need to know more to get to the bottom of this Tyler. Zinsser B-I-N Shellac Based Primer should not be the consistency of cottage cheese, it should be perfectly smooth. Give us a call at 888-855-1774 so we can hear more about your application and work to make things right.

                A favorite for all my projects
                Best for all my projects. Covers all woods. Prevents all bleedthrough. Dont try to clean your brush. Let it dry as is. When you want to rejuvenate brush soak in denatured alcohol for 20 minutes.

                Waste of money
                Bought this for finishing a patch where the drywall had cracked in the bathroom and had torn the old drywall paper. Sanded and cleaned the entire bathroom and primed using BIN the walls and ceiling to tie all together. The next day cracks and peeling had formed over all painted surfaces. Complete disaster.

                  Expensive, but worth it. Little bit thin, but made it easy to apply to knotholes and grooves in the knotty pine room we were painting. So far, no bleed through from any knot holes. Great product.

                  Garbage
                  We used primer for our cabinets because it came highly recommended. It was a complete waste of money. We sanded even though it said you didn’t have to. Even after 2-3 coats of primer and 2 coats of paint, the slightest bumps and it all comes off. We now are spending more money and time to redo them with ValSpar primer.

                  Let's see what we can figure out Amanda. Zinsser B-I-N Shellac Based Primer reaches full adhesion in 3 days, lower temperatures and multiple coats will prolong dry time and full cure.

                    best primer for laminate
                    This is the best primer for any laminate or fake wood job. It adhered without having to sand it first. It dried super fast. Easy to use and the consistency is very thin so it was easy to apply it. It is best used with a foam roller. The only thing was smell. But I made sure I used a mask and it didnt bother like that. I will never buy again another primer. This is the best primer i have used

                      BIN shellac primer
                      This primer is a game changer and worth every penny! I had to paint wood ceilings and this blocked stains and tannins from coming through. Needed a couple coats but the outcome was amazing. It drys fast so smell is gone fast. I tried cover stain and the smell was too much and lasted for days. Spend the extra money and it will save you in the end. Currently painting my RV with this and it’s covering amazing and I’m so happy.

                      Defective product ..don't waste your time
                      The primer on interior OSB board after 4 days dry time wiped off the board with a sponge. The primer on the ceiling is peeling and cracking , coming off by it's self . What a waste of 5 hours of sanding and prepping only to have to start over with a bigger mess then I started with. How am I going to get this crap off so I can start over. Thanks a lot. Seeing a review for the same problem last month leads me to believe that they don't care to insure they sell good products . They should have pull the bad primer and HD knew that also and yet they still sold it.

                      Let's talk about this, PJ! To ensure full durability with Rust-Oleum Zinsser B-I-N Shellac-Based Primer, we do recommend applying a topcoat within 3 days of application. If a topcoat cannot be applied within that time, then the surface may need to be lightly sanded or a new coat of primer may need to be applied. If you would like further assistance with your application, please give us a call at (888) 855-1774, so we can try to make things right with you.
