Which Zinsser paint

I wish to paint over currently stained wood stair bannisters and skirting so which product is best for the job? Thanks
Asked by: Bob9153
The best product for this type of application would be Zinsser B-I-N Primer (29661 for 1L, 10130 for 2.5L, 3298G for 5L) It is our ultimate adhesion promoting primer for this type of surface and requires no prior sanding, saving time and effort whilst providing the perfect base for a painted finish. All surfaces to be primed must be thoroughly cleaned down with a detergent solution and warm water, then rinsed with clean warm water. Allow to dry before wiping over the surfaces with methylated spirits to ensure any remaining residues that may interfere with adhesion are removed. Zinsser B-I-N Primer can then be applied with a brush or roller. It can be over coated with the desired decorative top coat after 45 minutes. We can suggest Zinsser Perma-White Interior Satin (13040 for 1 litre, 62096 for 2.5 litre, 7123G for 5 litre) or most decorative water-based/solvent-based top coats

Can this product be used to cover PVA marks on newly plastered walls?

had living room plastered, prepared it ready for painting after applying a mist coast noticed PVA marks. sanded down again and painted two more coats, PVA marks still visible. would this product or any other help cover these PVA stains?
Asked by: Armz378
Hello, thank you for your enquiry. Our best recommendations for PVA marks are to sand them back to remove the PVA, it is very difficult to get any paint to cover and stick to PVA. If you have removed as much of the PVA as possible then as the Bulls Eye 123 is an adhesion promoting primer and offers good coverage then it should provide a uniform finish to then apply your unthinned emulsion over. It is always our best advice to apply the primer to the whole area up to a natural break instead of patch priming, otherwise the areas you have patch primed could be noticeable through your emulsion paint. We trust this answers your question.

Can this product be used to cover mildew stains from condensation on textured wallpaper prior to painting the wallpaper?

Asked by: RobS87
Hi. Thank you for your recent enquiry. The best stain blocker to use for Mould & Mildew stains is Zinsser B-I-N (29661 = 1 litre, 10130 = 2.5 litre). Once you have killed off the mould & mildew with a proprietary killer and cleaned the surface and allowed it to dry you can apply B-I-N using either a brush or roller. This can be over coated with your chosen decorative finish, oil or water based, after it has dried (minimum of 45 minutes). Hope this helps

can this product be used over woodwork covered with old gloss paint, as a base to paint over?

Asked by: palaceprincess
Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Primer would be an excellent choice for this type of application as it gains excellent adhesion to existing gloss painted surfaces without the need for prior sanding. Please ensure the surfaces are thoroughly cleaned down with a liquid detergent and warm water solution, rinse with clean warm water and allow to dry. Once dry, wipe over the surfaces with methylated spirits to ensure any remaining residues that may interfere with adhesion are removed. Apply one coat of Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Primer allowing a minimum of 1 hour drying time before the application of the desired topcoat. Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Primer is compatible with most decorative water-based or oil/solvent-based topcoats. As a system, we can recommend our water-based Zinsser Perma-White Interior Satin (13040 for 1 litre, 62096 for 2.5 litre, 7123G for 5 litre)

Can this be used to paint upvc gutters

Asked by: Merkat
Zinsser Bulls Eye 123 is an excellent primer for weathered uPVC. Zinsser recommend to prepare the surface by lightly abrading with fine sandpaper and degreasing with meths prior to applying the Bulls Eye 123. Always ensure the surface to be painted is clean, dry and free of mould, mildew, dirt etc prior to applying any paint systems. The Bulls Eye 123 can be overcoated after a minimum of 1 hour with most conventional topcoats, allowing you to complete your project quickly and effectively. Please note, we would not recommend the Bulls Eye 123 for the interior surface of the gutter where the paint system would be immersed in water.

Is Zinsser primer suitable for a bathroom ceiling primer?

My bathroom ceiling is peeling, The bathroom is well ventilated by an extractor fan during showers and then window left locked open throughout the day. The original paint I am covering over is from when the house was a new build ten years ago.
Asked by: rickws
Hi. Thank you for your enquiry. Our advice would be to scrape off any loose paint and sand to a smooth surface. Apply 1 coat of Bullseye 1-2-3 with either a brush or roller at a coverage rate of 10m2/litre and once dry (minimum of 1 hour) coat it with a decorative finish. Perma-White Interior Satin (62096) would be a good choice for this particular environment as it contains a biocide which resists mould & mildew and it's finish is washable, scrub-able and moisture resistant. I hope this helps.

Hi was wondering would this stop water marks showing through previously painted plaster. Also could it be used to seal previously painted drywall before wallpapering..thanx

Asked by: Scottee
Hello, thank you for your enquiry. To seal water stains we recommend the Zinsser B-I-N Shellac Primer Sealer (10130) prior to applying your decorative finish, water based or solvent based. Yes, the Bulls Eye 123 can be applied to previously painted drywall prior to wallpapering, unless you are looking to block a water stain for example in which case the Zinsser B-I-N Primer would be better suited. We trust this answers your question
