This primer is thick in texture, it covers yellow stain on ceiling and wall from leak perfectly, also kills mold. No sanding, and no prep work is done, just used a fan to blow the ceiling completely dry. Two coats applied by using a 4" roller and a 1" foam brush for corners. This primer alone is good enough for me.

We are painting oak cabinets. The first coat of this we put on with a brush and had to do a light sand before putting on another. We then tried a foam roller, which applied an even, thicker coat. May have to lightly sand before painting. As far as it keeping the stain from bleeding through, we can't attest to that as we don't have the cabinets painted yet. FYI, if you are going to paint oak cabinets be prepared for days of prep work. We probably could have bought new cabinet doors cheaper than what it cost us to get all the supplies to properly do the cabinet doors.

Easy application, quick drying. I have this on the floor of my cargo trailer and went to oil based at the suggestion of the manufacturer for better absorption and water resistance. It bonds great to the plywood and is holding up great to my motorcycle tires and kick stand. I'll be adding a top coat soon, but for now this primer is the only thing protecting the floor and ramp on my trailer.

Be sure to have the store shake this primer for you before buying. I ordered online, and they did not shake mine. It was separated badly, and nearly the whole the first gallon I used was transparent. Once there was space in the can and I could got it to mix, the finish was opaque white, as it should have been.

Covers great, is a little thick but dries fast. I used it on a solid oak coffee table and did not sand. I then painted over it with white paint and antiqued it. Love it!

I used the whole gallon on old trim around mybarn doors and a service door that had been hanging without paint for TOO LONG. All looked fantastic when done. Took 2 coats brush painted to completely cover but not surprised. Good stuff and a little less $ than kilz.

Excellent coverage!!
Used it on old wood walls covered unbelievable!! Best primer for wood ! I never worked with primer with oil ! Uggh it isn’t easy to clean up at all . The only down side is omg the odor is so powerful! Ventilation doesn’t seem to help. My eyes are tearing still and it has been 5 hours after rolling ! Honestly with the powerful toxic fumes I don’t think I would ever use oil primer again ! I pray it’s gone tomorrow morning.. if this doesn’t bother you ... then this is the primer to buy !! Excellent stuff !!!
