Rated 5 out of 5 by Need your top coat to stick? If you are having trouble getting the finish coat to your project to be durable and last then you need to use this product. This primer/sealer is the best I have ever used. I use it for all sorts of jobs but mainly for painting old dark furniture. It is a shellac based product that sticks to anything from an old oak sideboard to a modern foil rapped kitchen cabinet door. Be sure to work fast, as it dries quickly. If you have trouble working with it then dip your brush in a little Methylated Spirit which will thin the paint slightly. Don't soak it as the "meths" also acts as a cleaning agent. Great product, could have been packed better for shipment as the tins. although bubble wrapped, just rattled about in an otherwise empty box. 16 Jul 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great but affected CO2 alarm I love this paint used it as first coat on MDF and then top coat and the finish was superb and very chip resistant on skirting boards. However when closing windows on leaving house returned to CO2 alarm going off - something to do with the Shellac. Just ventilate well.. 12 Jul 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant Bought this after using other products and liked it immediately not to thick or to thin covered over brown water stains on ceilings and walls needed two coats but they were dark dries quick not to much smell clean brush/roller in methylated spirits this is the only one l shall use in future l would recommend using this product. 25 Jun 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by No Hesitation! I had 3 brown stained doors which leached the brown through 2 or 3 layers of white paint. This was a last resort before I scrapped the doors, and it worked!! Easy to apply, really quick drying, and stops the stains leaching through. No hesitation in recommending it. 21 Apr 2016

Answer: 
Yes, the Zinsser B-I-N Primer can be over coated with a water based or solvent based topcoat once it has been allowed to dry for a minimum of 45 minutes. Our own topcoat Zinsser Perma-White Interior is water based, available in matt, satin or semi-gloss and is ideal for use over the B-I-N primer, as are most decorative finishes.

I'm sorry we are unable to provide you with a shelf life of the product once it has been opened, we can only advise on the shelf life of unopened cans - which is 3 years from date of manufacture. Our advice would be to purchase the product in a can sizes suitable for your project.

I need to paint a large number of MDF panels and read this would be a good product to use as sealer/primer.
To make it quicker, I intend to use the Erbauer Electric paint spray gun. Would this work?

I want to use this to try and cover some water stains which have come through the ceiling (the problem has been resolved and dried out). But I intend to topcoat with brilliant white vinyl matt. Will the vinyl matt cover this?

Answer: 
The Zinsser B-I-N Primer is an excellent primer to block water stains, you can paint over it with an emulsion paint after a minimum overcoating time of 45mins. We recommend priming the whole area or up to a natural break with the B-I-N Primer to prevent ghosting of the spot primed areas if your emulsion paint is not high hiding.

Answer: 
Zinsser B-I-N Shellac-Based Primer will effectively seal PVA glue marks to stop them from spoiling your decorative topcoat. Spot prime the affected areas with Zinsser B-I-N Primer and allow 45 minutes drying time prior to the re-application of your topcoat product. As the B-I-N Primer will seal the surface it has been applied to, you will then have two differing levels of surface porosity between the primed areas and non-primed areas meaning you may find that the spot primed areas may initially "ghost" through your topcoat. This ghosting effect will cover and blend in, but the number of coats required will be dependant on the opacity (coverage power) of your top coat product. For a high opacity top coat that will cover in 1-2 coats, we can suggest the primed surfaces to be decorated with two full coats of our Zinsser Perma-White Interior Matt (product code: 1289G for 1 litre, 3939g for 2.5 litre) or Satin (product code: 13040 for 1 litre, 62096 for 2.5 litre) allowing 2 hours between coats.
