Q:Will it stop sap from coming thru boards?
by|Apr 13, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Great question, Mark! While Rust-Oleum Zinsser Bulls Eye Shellac Finish will seal sap streaks, this product cannot be painted over directly. This shellac contains wax, and it will prevent most coatings from properly adhering to it. The surface would need to be sealed with a universal sealer, or you can prime with Rust-Oleum Zinsser B-I-N Shellac-Based Primer instead. This primer can be painted directly over, and it will also block sap streaks. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Zinsser-1-qt-White-B-I-N-Shellac-Based-Interior-Primer-and-Sealer-00904/100398380 - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

    Q:Can I mix Zinsser shellac clear with water based paint
    by|Feb 24, 2024
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  We appreciate your interest, Lori! Rust-Oleum Zinsser Bulls Eye Shellac can be tinted with up to 1.5 oz. (44 ml) of universal colorant per quart. We do not recommend mixing with other paints or coatings, as the products will likely not mix or dry properly. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

      Q:I was hoping to use this shellac with my spray gun. Will this work? If so do I need to thin it out?
      by|Feb 1, 2024
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Thank you for reaching out, Chris. Due to the fast drying properties of Rust-Oleum Zinsser Shellac we do not recommend applying using a sprayer as it can cause the finish to dry before reaching the surface. This product is available in a spray aerosol. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Zinsser-12-oz-Clear-Shellac-Spray-408/100176744 -Rust-Oleum Product Support 14

        Q:Can this be used to seal refinished wood floors?
        by|Jan 17, 2024
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Happy to clear things up, Barb! Shellac is a traditional coating that was used on hardwood floors prior to the development of modern polyurethane floor finishes. Shellac does not dry to as hard or scratch resistant a surface as polyurethane, so it requires more care and maintenance, such as applying floor wax to protect the shellac. Since Rust-Oleum Zinsser Bulls Eye Shellac contains wax, it may not be coated with other coatings once it has been applied. The exception to this rule is that our Zinsser Seal Coat Wax-Free Shellac may be applied to the surface prior to applying a polyurethane. Applying the shellac, Seal Coat, and then a water-based polyurethane is an excellent way to achieve the traditional look of a shellac hardwood floor with the durability of modern polyurethane. If you have any questions about this project, please give us a call at 800-901-0411 and we will be happy to help! http://www.homedepot.com/p/Zinsser-1-qt-SealCoat-Wood-Sealer-824H/202070456 - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

          Great brand. Wish you’d carry more on hand. It was the last one on the shelf… and at times when I’ve gone you were all out.

          Odd appearance
          Bought a can yesterday and was surprised by the cloudiness of the content. Dries too fast to level and then stays gummy for a couple of hours. Not sure if I got an old can…

          This is not what we expect to hear, and we need to gather more details to get to the bottom of this! Please give us a call at 800-901-0411 to talk with us further. When calling, please have your can of Rust-Oleum Zinsser Bulls Eye Shellac nearby, so we can collect the batch codes from it.

            Mislabeled can
            This was amber shellac in a clear can, or either very old. Not even close to other batches.

              Not the easiest to apply due to it dries quickly, but the results are well worth it. Sands easy between coats, and gets an awesome high gloss.
