          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

            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.

              Hi Lu, our Zinsser B-I-N Shellac-Based Primer is designed for interior use, and spot priming on exterior surfaces, for sealing knots. If the primer was applied to a surface that goes through wide variance in temperatures such as an outdoor wall for instance, it will crack over time. We need to know more about the application and what occurred to get to the bottom of this. Please give us a call at 888-855-1774, we want to try to make things right! - Rust-Oleum Product Support 2 Rustoleum

                This primer will cover anything. I used it to prime my kitchen cabinets prior to painting. My cabinets were stained oak with a urethane coating. I cleaned the cabinets doors and lightly sanded with 320 grit sand prior to priming. Using the Zinsser 123 prevents the paint from chipping. It flows well and dries quickly

                WORKS!!
                I had been wanting a round dinner table and my mom had one that needed some TLC. So i decided to try and give it a face lift. I was so discouraged after sanding everything and using kilz primer just to see some brownish, yellowish coffee looking stains seeping through in certain areas. I researched what i could do to fix this issue and I DID NOT want to resand the whole table again. So luckily i came across a pintrest post recommending this product stating no sanding was required. OMG! this product is amazing!! I did no new prep work to the table before adding this product and it covered those ugly looking stains with just one coat. I will never use any other primer or sealer. THIS STUFF IS AMAZING

                  Extreme Large Surface Cracking
                  I purchased this product to cover some smells in my house when I moved in. It seemed to be the perfect primer so I ended up using it in 4 rooms including all walls, closets and ceilings. The application was smooth with the primer’s watery and milky consistency but extremely potent in regards to smell. It was applied on clean previously painted walls in a cool and dry environment. After the product dried I was satisfied with the results and thought it did the trick. After a couple coats of finish paint were applied and roughly 6 months went by I noticed hairline cracks everywhere this primer was applied and now even a few spots are peeling. RustOleum was responsive and helpful when I contacted them with my concerns and I was even refunded for my purchase. A small band-aid on the main issue of future repairs to get the finish looking like it should. However, I have noticed that most of these reviews occur immediately after application with no mention of long term affects. Researching shellac after-the- fact it is a thin and brittle substance that cracks when dried. Future users be aware this product is advertised as a primer that sticks to anything but it looks like it is having a hard time sticking to standard painted walls as the picture on the container suggests. Would not recommend for large applications what so ever.

                    Love this product! Stripped 18 doors and 36 Kitchen cabinets that were stained. Used the BIN primer on them all and the cover was seamless. Even in my kitchen drawer that had food coloring in it. The first coat I saw some of the food coloring, second coat it was gone. We went from brown stain to white paint, I needed something that would not let anything seep through. This did the trick. Bought gallons of this stuff. Downside, it does not come off things easily, prep surfaces well in advance. Got some specs on the floor, appliances and it did not coming off.
