Rated 4 out of 5 by not bad but not perfect Bought this to cover some brown stains from water damage and some stains on a chimney breast (probably sulphur from the soot) Paint is very thick and goes on well, has covered the water stains immaculately but unfortunately about 50% of the soot stains have reappeared so will need another coat. Smells very strongly like gloss paint until dry (which is only about an hour). Not perfect but much better than the water based stain blocks (from wilko etc) which are hopeless. 21 Apr 2016

I live in a flat with black mould. I keep windows open and its now under control. I hardly see it anymore. There are black spots on walls and skirting which come through any new paint. Will this help?.

Will this product cover "greasy" looking marks coming through emulsion paint which have been caused I think by painting emulsion over a sealant or caulking. If not do you have a product which would solve this problem.

Answer: 
Zinsser Cover Stain is an excellent primer for sealing grease stains on surfaces, however we do not recommend it, or any of our other primers, for application over silicone based sealant or caulking. Unfortunately, we cannot off you our full recommendation that this product will seal this type of grease stain due to the uncertainty of its nature.

When newly plastered, our bathroom ceiling clearly was not primed properly so now there is a large area where the paint has peeled off above the shower to reveal minimal mildew growth. My main priorities are to remove all loose paint, prime and repaint. Will this product be suitable if used on the bare plaster before repainting?

Answer: 
Zinsser Cover Stain would be an excellent choice for this type of application as it will seal porous surfaces like bare plaster and has great hiding power to cover any remaining mould stains. All surfaces must be clean, dry and free from any contaminant that may interfere with adhesion. Remove all visible signs of organic growth and treat the areas with an anti-mould solution. Remove all loose existing material by scraping to a sound edge. Feather the sound edges with a fine grade sand paper. Patch prime all stained and bare areas with one coat of Zinsser Cover Stain and allow a minimum of 2 hours drying time before applying the desired top coat finish. As a system in bathroom environments we recommend the application of two full surface area coats of Zinsser Perma-White Interior Satin (product code: 13040 for 1 litre, 62096 for 2.5 litre) allowing 2 hours between coats. Zinsser Perma-White Interior Satin is excellent for high humidity areas and offers up to 7 years protection from future mould and mildew growth.

Answers

Answer: 
Zinsser Cover Stain Primer can be over coated with most decorative water-based and solvent-based top coats. Where possible, apply Cover Stain Primer to the affected areas and up to a natural break in the surface. This will eliminate any sign of the primed areas "ghosting" through the top coat finish. If priming to a natural surface break is not feasible, achieving a uniform finish over the spot primed area in 1-2 coats will depend on the opacity (hiding power) of the desired top coat. As a system, we recommend over coating Cover Stain Primer with Zinsser Perma-White Interior Matt (1289G for 1 litre, 3939G for 2.5 litre, 9870G for 5 litre) or Satin (130040 for 1 litre, 62096 for 2.5 litre, 7123G for 5 litre) as this product has excellent opacity.
