While Rust-Oleum Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Water-Based Primer can be used on most plastic surfaces, it is essential that any loose paint or material is removed from the surface prior to application. This primer will also not bond loose material to the surface. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

      Answer This Question

      A:  Thank you for reaching out, Linda! The surface must be allowed to fully dry after raining before priming with Rust-Oleum Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Water-Based Primer. This will be dependent on the humidity levels and temperatures. You also want to ensure that the relative humidity is below 85% when priming. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

              Q:Can I use this primer to paint my tile bathroom walls. I believe they are stone? Maybe ceramic? I just need good coverage so it doesn’t just scrap off!

              Answer This Question

              A:  Happy to help, Alyssa! While Rust-Oleum Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Water-Based Primer will adhere to most tile surfaces, it does require an opaque topcoat for durability and protection. Please keep in mind, while this primer can be used in bathrooms, we do not recommend it for use inside a tub or shower enclosure. The constant exposure to moisture and high humidity will cause the primer to blister and peel. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

                Answer This Question

                A:  Thank you for reaching out! We do not recommend thinning our Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Primer. Surface porosity can cause reduced coverage, though there are other factors that may as well. The texture of the surface can reduce coverage significantly, as well as heavier applications. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 2
