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.

Can I emulsion {water based) over a coverstain primer

Asked by: JDDEVEL
Hello, thank you for your enquiry. The Zinsser Cover Stain primer can be over painted with an emulsion, you just need to allow the Cover Stain to dry for a minimum of 2 hours prior to applying your emulsion paint. If you are using the Cover Stain to block a stain, as with any stain block primer it is generally good practice to prime the whole area or up to a natural break, rather than just spot priming the stain, especially on a ceiling otherwise your spot primed area may be visible when viewed from certain angles. We trust this answers your question.

Will this stop efflorescence?

I am looking for a paint on treatment to prevent efflorescence from blistering up new paint work on new plaster.
Asked by: SaltandWild
Hello, thank you for your enquiry. I'm sorry the Zinsser Cover Stain Primer is not suitable to prevent the efflorescence from affecting new paint work. If salts are visible this indicates that moisture is present, we do not recommend any of our primers are applied to any surfaces that are damp. Sorry we couldn't help this time.
