Questions & Answers

Should this product be used on newly scraped and skimmed ceilings before painting them with ceiling paint?

Asked by: Ss
I wouldn't use this on anything. It is like painting glue and leaves brush marks everywhere you brush.

On exterior wood ,How many days do I have until I can top coat with paint this classic cover stain oil base primer?

On exterior previous painted peeling off redwood
Asked by: OmarGzmn
Dry time can vary considerably due to a lot of factors like the humidity but I normally give it 24 hours to dry completely before applying a top coat. I would double check and feel the primed surface before painting and if it feels tacky then it needs more dry time.

Cover Stain 1 gal. White Low VOC Classic Oil-Based Interior/Exterior Primer and Sealer is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 6.

It looks exactly the same as the quart sized paint can, but this is a different formula. If you want smooth fast drying stain blocking primer DO NOT BUY THIS LOW VOC CRAP! It does not have a 2 hr re-coat time, after more than 24 hrs it is still GOO and I cannot handle my clients kitchen cabinet doors. Will have to re-sand and redo. Also says can use with any top coat, not the case. I spot primed with your real oil-based primer in quart size, only to have it dry grainy and weird over top this low voc junk. ATTN: Zinsser Change the color of the product so as not to confuse with your real oil-based primer, which is a very good product. You say "classic oil-base" but it is not the real deal and actually quite terrible!

Horribly thick like trying to paint glue with your paintbrush - leaves awful brush marks. Makes for a very bad looking paint job. After doing some of my trim with it I stopped, let it dry, and sanded it off. I disposed of the can and got Kilz Oil based which I have used before and gives a very nice smooth finish to trim. This stuff is a waste of time and money. And for the record, I applied it at 70º in a low-humidity environment and stirred it well. 30+ years experience painting and this is the worst primer I have ever used.

I removed most of it by pressure washing but could not remove all of it. This primer did an excellent job in covering up the mess. I liked the fact that only one coat was needed to cover up the stains. I have used latex primers in the past but stains reappeared in a few months. If you have tough stains to cover, I recommend the oil based stain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from When you need a primer that will stick to just about anything then this is the product for you. ... When you need a primer that will stick to just about anything then this is the product for you. I bought some shutters that were plastic and they were just about slick as glass. I knew I needed a really good primer to prepare the surface for paint. The shutters were gray and the primer also did a good job of covering up the gray. As the saying goes 'you get what your pay for'. There are cheaper primers on the market but they are not going to perform as well as this product. I'm a big fan of the Zinsser latex based primer for less demanding applications.

I thinned with linseed oil and paint thinner but think penetrol would have been better. If your thinking of using this primer buy penetrol 1qt to a gallon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I have used this brand several times before but never this item. As always, the quality and value exceeds my expectations. The real value is in the quality of this primer. You only need one coat, compared to several when you use low grade primer due to low quality coverage of uneven coverage. This product goes on evenly with great hide and you stretch your dollar and save a bunch of time in the process. The 100 VOC was different for me, and the difference was noticeable. There was no drop in quality / performance at all. As a side note, I was nervous about this coming in the mail and was concerned about damage. The product arrived with small braces in the lid to really lock the lid into place and was packages really well. As an additional side note, I took the gallon to my local Home Depot and they were happy to give it a shake for me. This is good practice as you don't know how long these paints have been warehoused.
