Rated 5 out of 5 by Seems to do the job Early days but it does look like it has stopped any show though! Strong odour though so would suggest using in well ventilated areas. 19 Feb 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does what is says on the T.. First time using this product. Great coverage on veneer doors. Easy to use with roller or brush. Recommended 27 Jan 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great stuff, no more stains! After buying a house that previously had a very heavy smoker I was struggling to get rid of the yellow stains on the ceiling in the room that was smoked in the most. 5 cleans with sugar soap and undercoat still struggled to stop the yellow coming through... However after reading the reviews I tried this stuff, its brilliant! two coats and the ceiling is looking good as new! Yes it smells when you put it on (but smell goes quick as it dies fast), yes its a bit more money than others but it does the job very very well! I have now used it in the other rooms with smoker stains and after a few sugar soaps and two coats of this stuff you would never know it was once horrible stained yellow! Im on my 3rd tin as it works so well and saves time in the long run. 9 Dec 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Superb primer I've been using Zinsser Coverstain as a professional decorator for many years now. The good points: 1. Superb adhesion to bare timber or painted surfaces, even gloss (although always key first, it's good practice). 2. Superb opacity - it really does cover very well. 3. One of the quickest drying oil-based primers you can get. 4. It does block most stains very well. 5. It has excellent grain filling properties - so it will help you to get a smoother finish with your top coats. 6. You can use it as a replacement for regular oil-based undercoat. It's a bit more expensive, but its high grip and much quicker drying are worth the extra cost in my book. 7. It can be tinted. I hand tint on site with professional tints. 8. Once dry it sands very well. The bad points: 1. Like most oil-based paints, it does have an odour. So if you're coating all the woodwork in a room indoors with the door and window closed, it can get a bit much. Always ensure good ventilation when painting of course. But it's no worse than most other oil-based paints, and as it dries quicker the smell dissipates faster. 2. It's more expensive than regular oil-based primers or undercoats. But you get what you pay for, a very quick drying superb oil-based stain blocker, primer and undercoat in one. I ALWAYS have a tin in the van, and Screwfix usually have one of the best prices for Coverstain. Recommended. 16 Nov 2015

Answer: 
Unfortunately we would not recommend Zinsser Cover Stain primer, or any of our products for this type of application as they are not suitable for application to surfaces subjected to foot traffic.

Answer: 
Zinsser Cover Stain is suitable for application to uPVC, however it would not be not our first choice primer for this type of surface. Our go to primer for uPVC is Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 (Product Code: 10135 for 1 litre. 10136 for 2.5 litre. 4224G for 5 litre). Please ensure the surface to be painted is clean, dry and free of mould, mildew, dirt etc prior to application. Our recommedations prior to applying the Bulls Eye 1-2-3 are to prepare the surface by lightly abrading with fine sandpaper and degreasing with methylated spirits. Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 can be overcoated after a minimum of 1 hour with most conventional water-based or oil/solvent-based topcoats, allowing you to complete your project quickly and effectively.

Answer: 
Zinsser Cover Stain is an excellent primer for this purpose. It has great hiding power to cover any mould related staining and seal the mould stains within the surface to prevent them from spoiling your decorative finish. As Zinsser Cover Stain does not kill existing mould, we recommend to treat the affected areas first with an anti-mould/mould killing solution. Prime all stained areas with one coat of Zinsser Cover Stain and allow a minimum of 2 hours drying time before applying the desired top coat finish. Zinsser Cover-Stain is compatible with most decorative top coats. As a system we recommend the application of two full surface area coats of 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. Zinsser Perma-White Interior is excellent for areas with high humidity and contains a biocide which offers up to 7 years protection from future mould and mildew growth. Zinsser Perma-White must be left as the final finish for the biocide to be effective.
