Q:A latex topcoat . I just don’t want the oil primer spots to flash through
by|Apr 2, 2021

Answer This Question

A:  Happy to help, Dan! While Rust-Oleum Zinsser Cover Stain Oil-Based Primer Spray can be used to spot prime, we do recommend priming the whole surface after spot priming to prevent flashing. This primer can be topcoated with oil or water-based paints. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

    A:  No flash through occurred. Top latex coat looks great

      Answer This Question

      A:  Rust-Oleum ZInsser Cover Stain Oil-Based Primer Spray is suitable for use on previously finished surfaces provided the finish is in good, sound condition and paintable. If unsure of the finish type, we recommend applying in a test area first. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

        A:  Hmm. If your local store doesn’t carry Zinsser Cover Stain Spray, you can order it online or have it shipped to your local store at no extra cost!

          A:  You just have to buy 6 cans VS a single 6 pack is all, otherwise stocking shelf would consume too much space.

          I have used this Cover Stain for over 20 years to help clients with challenging projects with great results. The aerosol cans save time when areas are smaller and we need a smooth finish. I have run product through HVLP and airless with larger projects. It sets the foundation for a beautiful finish. Fast dry and easy to sand after filling imperfection in surfaces. Great for spot priming for raw wood spots.

          Great Product
          This spray primer is a great way to get a smooth surface for painting. I used it for a section of cabinets that you see all the time. It could use a better spray nozzle though.

          Zinsser Cover Stain Primer
          Zinsser Cover Stain Oil Base Primer is my go to spray for priming my furniture before painting. It sprays on in a nice mist spray and covers in just a couple of coats. I then sand and ready to paint any type of furniture and I feel confident that I will get solid coverage and good bonding.

            Overall works for what I need since I use this for smaller wall repairs, but watch out for potential paint leaking down the can. I like the spray can style since it's much easier to use and clean up is easy. I did find that the spray head can start to leak over time and allow paint to run to pool in the top and run down the can, so be careful. I found that its spray is stronger and lasts the full can amount, rather than other brands were after a short while the paint output gets smaller and weaker even when the can is still very full.

            ceiling stain cover
            Previous products (7 years ago) were far better atr stain covering. This product took 3 coats to cover a relatively light stain. I feel that I would have been better off by just using the Kilz which I had on hand,

            Thank you for reaching out and sharing your experience. For the best results and coverage with Rust-Oleum Zinsser Cover Stain Oil-Based Primer Spray, we do recommend applying several light coats a few minutes apart.
