        Q:I put the primer on outside wooden window frames and ledges. This was a couple weeks ago. Should I sand and do another coat of primer or can I just go ahead and paint?

        Answer This Question

        A:  Happy to clear things up! Since Rust-Oleum Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Water-Based Primer cures after 7 days, you will either need to lightly sand or apply another coat of primer prior to applying your paint to ensure full adhesion. You will also need to ensure that the surface is clean and free of any dirt or residue. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

                Q:I have a metal building that is peeling down to bare galvanized metal. Should I use the Zinsser Peel Stop or Bulls Eye 1-2-3 product
                by|Oct 31, 2023
                1 Answer
                Answer This Question

                A:  Happy to help, Daniel! If the paint is peeling on the galvanized metal, this likely indicates that the paint used was not suitable for use on galvanized metal, as a water-based paint needs to be used. For the best results, we do recommend removing the paint and then priming with Rust-Oleum Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Water-Based Primer. We do not recommend using the Peel Stop, as it will not create a bond between the existing paint and the galvanized metal. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

While Rust-Oleum Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Water-Based Primer will adhere to most surfaces, we recommend checking with the insulation manufacture to ensure it is considered a paintable surface. A test application also needs to be done to ensure favorable results. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

                    Answer This Question

                    A:  Thank you for reaching out! While Rust-Oleum Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Water-Based Primer can be used for most stains, we recommend an oil-based primer to block nicotine stains.
