Rated 4 out of 5 by Does the job Was a little sceptical but this did the job! Very thick to paint with, but i suppose you could thin it down a little if needed. 15 Jul 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Magic! Bought this product after reading other reviews and have used it today. It really does work! It covered bad water stains from storm damage instantly and I was so glad other Reviewers had highly recommended it. Very small price to pay for something so efficient. 7 Jul 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Zinsser cover stain primer Used this product for some years now primarily for covering water staining. Used recently on previously painted timber that hadn't been knotted. Covered the resin stains in one coat and left me with a perfectly primed surface. Recommended! 6 May 2016

Answer: 
Zinsser Cover Stain can be applied to bare ferrous (steel) metal providing it is clean, dry and free from any rust or surface contamination such as dirt, oil, mould etc. For bare galvanised metal the Zinsser Bulls Eye 123 (10136) is recommended, ensure metal is clean, dry, degreased and free from any surface contamination before priming. Both Cover Stain and Bulls Eye 123 can be over coated with an oil based or a water based topcoat, Cover Stain after a minimum of 2 hours after application and Bulls Eye 123 after a minimum of 1 hour.

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.
