Q:Can i use this product over and to seal mildew and mold on wood?
by|Nov 5, 2023
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Happy to clear things up, Roland! While Rust-Oleum Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Water-Based Primer can be used on wood surfaces, it will not eliminate mold or mildew on the surface. At this time, we do not offer a primer that can kill mold and mildew on bare wood. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

    Q:WHAT PAINT IS RECOMMENDED FOR THE TOP COAT ON THIS PRODUCT
    by|Aug 17, 2023
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Thank you for reaching out! Rust-Oleum Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Plus Water-Based Primer can be topcoated with most oil or water-based paints. To ensure lasting results with the primer, it must be topcoated with an opaque paint. The best paint will be dependent on your application. Such as what type of use the surface gets and if it is an indoor or outdoor application. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

      Q:Can you use Zinnser Bullseye 123, as a top coat for primed porch posts.
      by|Jun 16, 2023
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Happy to help. Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Water Based Primer, like all primes, must be top coated. Primers do not have the same characteristics as paint, they are more porous, with their main function to provide better adhesion of a top coat. Bulls Eye 1-2-3 can be top coated with any water or oil based paint. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 6

        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Hi Rafa, our Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Primer is an excellent choice for stainless steel. Keep in mind that while the primer may be topcoated after 1 hour, it will reach full adhesion and hardness after 7 days. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 2

          The primer arrived within five days. It did what it was expected to do. We mainly used it on the trim, which was stained. I would recommend this product

              Did not block stain
              I had a small roof leak repaired and painted over the ceiling stain with this product, according to the instructions. Two day later, stains reappeared. There has been no rain since the repair. This product was recommended because it is water based…simply did not work.

              Response from Rust-OleumSupportJul 7, 2021
              Let's see what we can figure out Charlie. Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Plus Primer can be used to block water stains. After applying Bulls-Eye 1-2-3 Plus to the stain, the stain may appear in the primer film. This is a normal occurrence. the stain will be locked in the primer film and will not bleed into the topcoat. Certain applications may require a second coat of primer. As a primer, Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Plus requires that a topcoat be applied.
