A:  Hi Jimbo, thank you for your question. We do not recommend priming over dirt or other substances as this will affect the adhesion. You can always test a small area first. Have a great day! -Giovanna

    Q:Can Kilz be used on a concrete floor for stick on vinyl tile

    Answer This Question

    A:  Hi Dave, thank you for your question. As it turns out, our products have not been tested under stick-on adhesive used for vinyl tile, so I can't guarantee the performance. I recommend reaching out to the manufacturer of the tile to ensure it's compatible with our water-based Kilz 3 Premium Primer.

              Q:Can I use this over the residue from wallpaper adhesive That has been scrubbed and sanded? Can it be used on old oil base paint so that I can top coat with latex ?
              by|Aug 3, 2023
              1 Answer
              Answer This Question

              A:  Hi there, thanks for the question. For priming over wallpaper adhesive residue, I'd recommend using an oil-based primer such as our Kilz Original Primer. Water-based primers could reactivate the adhesive and cause the primer and paint to peel. You can ally the Kilz 3 Premium Primer over oil-based coatings, If the coating is glossy, I'd recommend scuff-sanding the surface first to help with adhesion. Have a great day! -Ronald

                Q:Will this cover the walls that were painted using a sponge method (dark over light base) or do the walls need to be sanded first?

                Answer This Question

                A:  Hi Natalia, thanks for the question. Depending on how coarse the texture is, it may be a good idea to sand the wall first to ensure that the primer will adequately cover the texture. Also, if a glaze was used or if the existing paint is glossy, it would be a good idea to scuff-sand the wall to ensure the adhesion of the primer. Have a great day! -Ronald
