Q:Do you need to sand glossy stained woodwork before applying.
by|Oct 20, 2023
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Thank you for reaching out, Lenny! Rust-Oleum Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Water-Based Primer can be used on previously finished wood surfaces without the need for sanding. Make sure the surface is free of any wax. If the surface does not have a finish over the stain, like a polyurethane, we recommend using Rust-Oleum Zinsser Cover Stain Oil-Based Primer. Please keep in mind, if the stain is tacky at all, it will need to be removed prior to applying any sort of finish or paint over it. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Zinsser-Cover-Stain-1-gal-White-Oil-Based-Interior-Exterior-Primer-and-Sealer-3501/100398377 - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

    Q:How much area does 5 gallons cover

    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Thank you for reaching out, Steve! Each gallon of Rust-Oleum Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Water-Based Primer has a recommended coverage of 400-450 square feet with a single coat, depending on the surface condition and application method. More porous surfaces or applying with a sprayer are likely to be on the lower end of the range. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

      Q:Can I paint over exterior log oil without sanding?
      by|Oct 12, 2023
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Great question, Chris! Some exterior oil finishes have water-resistant characteristics that may prevent a coating from bonding well to the surface. Test the Rust-Oleum Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Water Base Primer in a small, inconspicuous area to determine suitability. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 8

        Q:Do I have to paint over the primer?
        by|Oct 12, 2023
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Happy to help, Bonnie! If using Rust-Oleum Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Water-Based Primer on exterior surfaces or on surfaces that will be handled, a topcoat is required for full durability and longevity. Primers also tend to be more porous than paints to promote adhesion, and because of this they tend to pick up more dirt. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

                  Q:Can this be used on my shed OSB floor before painting ?
                  by|Sep 28, 2023
                  1 Answer
                  Answer This Question

                  A:  We appreciate your interest, Ron. While Rust-Oleum Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Water-Based Primer can be applied to OSB, it can only be used on subflooring. We do not recommend it for use as a primer under floor paints, as the foot traffic will cause the primer, and therefore any topcoat, to crack and peel. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3
