Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing potion We use this by default now! It's not cheap, but it's incredible! We use it on MDF, timber, old paintwork, stains, the lot! We haven't had any problems since using Zinser as a first coat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Notch Very impressed, used on multiple surfaces and the quick dry is phenomenal. Worth paying a premium for a top quality primer and stain killer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful I bought this to prime MDF for painting. It dries far far too quickly leaving leaving inconsistent coverage. I expected it to raise the 'grain' of the MDF a little and require a light sanding - especially after the first coat, but I need to use a random orbital sander to sort out the mess this 123 leaves. I've used this on a dozen practice pieces and simply can't get adequate results. I need 3 coats and many sheets of sandpaper to get a simple job done. I have no experience of other primers but I know they are cheaper and could not do a worse job.

can zinsser bulls eye1-2-3 blue primer be used on burned off bare wood ?

Asked by: Oakhurst
Hi. Thanks for your enquiry. Our best recommendation for interior wood is the Zinsser B-I-N primer (1 litre = 29661, 2.5 litre = 10130 or 5 litre = 3298G) and for exterior wood we would suggest the Cover Stain (1 litre = 17114 or 2.5 litre = 17117). In both cases 1-2 coats are recommended and once fully dry (45 mins for B-I-N & 2 hours for Cover Stain) they can be coated with your chosen decorative finish, oil or water based. I hope this helps.

Which to use

I require a very smooth high gloss finish to wood . Prime seal under coat . Which would give the best result. B-I-N SHELLAC-BASED PRIMER SEALER WHITE or Bulls Eye 123
Asked by: BarryT
Hi Barry T. Thank you for your enquiry. B-I-N would be the perfect primer sealer for interior wood as it has unparalleled adhesion to any surface providing great key without having to scuff sand. It will also seal stubborn stains, knots and sap streaks. B-I-N is suitable for exterior wood but only for sealing knots. If a full coverage is required (on an exterior surface) then the best product would be the Cover Stain (1 litre = 17114 or 2.5 litres 17117). 1 or 2 coats of either the B-I-N or the Cover Stain is recommended, to be applied by brush or roller at a coverage rate of approx. 10m²/L/coat. In all cases it is always good working practice to ensure that the surface has been prepared sufficiently i.e., with hot soapy water then rinsed with fresh warm water to remove detergent and when dry a good wipe with methylated spirit. Once the chosen primer has dried (minimum of 45 minutes for B-I-N and 2 hours for Cover Stain) you can overcoat it with your chosen decorative topcoat, oil based or water based. I hope this helps

which zinsser primer/sealer can i use on exterior stonework prior to applying smooth masonry paint.

Asked by: davyc
Hi. Thank you for your enquiry. The Bullseye 1-2-3 can be applied to sound, dry brick work as a primer/sealer. Once it has been allowed to fully dry (minimum of 1 hour) it can be coated with a water based masonry paint. I hope this helps.
