Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good cover. After stripping paper from a ceiling large water stains were on ceiling which came through a coat of paint. painted over stains with this and it covered all blemishes ready for final coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive but brilliant These paints cost a lot but work very well. If penetrating damp stains are well established I recommend two coats. Otherwise brilliant stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it says on the tin ! Great product More versatile and useful than the water based products which do fail to block sometimes . This one is great for most things i find

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent coverage I bought this to cover some hardwood frames where ordinary primer had failed - on stripped and sanded wood it turned brown and where it hadn't been stripped the old colour came through. However two coats of this and it completed covered and none of the old colour came through at all.

can this product be used on a varnished door prior to it being painted with white gloss?

Asked by: kesboy
Hi kesboy. Thank you for your enquiry. Yes. Cover Stain will adhere to glossy surfaces without having to scuff sand. Always ensure that 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. Once you have done this we would advise applying the Cover Stain with either a brush or roller at a coverage rate of approx.. 10m2, usually only 1 coat is required. Once this has been allowed to dry (minimum of 2hours) it can be coated with any oil or water based decorative finish. Hope this helps.

have varnished pine skirting and architive in home, we want it changed to white which we thought meant ripping out and replacing! Would this primer work on the pine?

Asked by: EDDIE12
Hi Eddie12. Thank you for your enquiry. B-I-N (1 litre = 29661, 2.5 litre = 10130) would be the perfect for this particular project. It has unparalleled adhesion to any surface providing great key without having to scuff sand. 1 or 2 coats of B-I-N primer is recommended, to be applied by brush or roller at a coverage rate of approx. 10m²/L/coat. Always ensure that 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. Once the B-I-N Primer has dried (minimum of 45 minutes) you can overcoat it with your chosen decorative topcoat, oil based or water based. Zinsser Perma-White Interior Satin (1 litre = 13040, 2.5 litre = 62096) would be a suitable finishing coat. 2 coats are recommended to providing a durable, cleanable, long lasting decorative finish that stays white, does not yellow and can be over coated after a minimum of 2 hours. Hope this helps.

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.
