Rated 5 out of 5 by from Did the job very well used this in a bizarre fashion, It was to cover the smell of some horrid floorboards - I poured the entire contents and used a brush to spread it across the worst parts - It did what I needed, eliminated the smell forever. pity i'll never get to see that beautiful white colour again once the carpets are laid.

Is this product oil based

Asked by: Jezzzer
Hi Jezzzer. Thank you for your enquiry. Cover Stain is solvent and alkyd based and is soluble in white spirit. This is very similar to traditional oil based paints but it dries a lot quicker. Once applied and allowed to dry (minimum of 2 hours) it can be coated with any decorative finish, oil or water based. Hope this helps.

what is the best zinsser paint to use to paint over previously painted wooden wall paneling.

Asked by: Monty10
Hi Monty10. Thanks for your enquiry. Zinsser Cover Stain is a good choice for application to previously painted wood. It has excellent adhesion without the need of prior sanding and will block the darkest of colours. Before application we would always advise the surface has 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. One coat of Cover Stain applied by brush or roller at a coverage rate of 10m2/litre, is usually enough to block the colour of the previous paint and provide a good key for your chosen top coat, oil or water based. Hope this helps.

On new plaster with nicotine staining coming through, is it best to apply a mist coat before this stain blocker?

Asked by: CJbee
Hi. Thank you for your recent enquiry. One of the beauties with Zinsser products is that no mist coats are required when applying to bare plaster. Always ensure that the surface is clean and fully dry before application. Zinsser Cover Stain is perfect for nicotine stains but if you wanted to go one further and cover the stain and block the odour then Zinsser B-I-N (10130) will do the trick. Once these have dried, minimum of 45 minutes for B-I-N and 2 hours for Cover Stain you can over coat it with your chosen decorative finish, oil or water based. I hope this helps.

Can this be used to paint over vinyl wallpaper ready for a finish coat of Matt paint?

Asked by: Scotty4157
Hi Scotty4157. thanks for your enquiry. Bullseye 1-2-3 (10136) would be a more suitable option. Once applied there may be a risk that the edges of the wallpaper may lift if they are not sound or adhered sufficiently. It would be best to carry out a small test area to ensure the Bullseye 1-2-3 is compatible with your particular wallpaper and ensure there is the correct level of adhesion amount of adhesion. Hope this helps.

Covering and preventing condensation build up by door

Which is best paint for trying to prevent condensation on a cold inside wall
Asked by: Annielees
Hello, thank you for your enquiry. We do not have a product in our range that will help to prevent condensation from occurring on a cold wall, there are products on the market called Anti-Condensation Paint, these generally act as a thermal barrier to help to reduce the condensation and have a component that will absorb any moisture that does occur, we recommend you source a manufacturer of this type of product for further assistance. We trust this answers your question.
