Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent paint Very impressed with zinnser paint well worth the money this product makes hard jobs easy 9 May 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant Paint. This paint is brilliant, so easy to use and will cover any material. I have used it on a bathroom, did the ceiling, walls door and skirting with great result. I will never use any other paint now that I have discovered Perma White.Being water based it's easy to clean up the tools after use, I used a mini sponge roller and normally I would throw away the sponge when finished but with this paint it can be washed out no problem. How long it stays white remains to be seen but it's really easy to apply. 18 Apr 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Damp Patch Prior to purchasing this item I read the reviews of several similar products. The reviews of this item seemed more consistent in terms of application and purpose which convinced me to purchase. Having applied the product i am pleased with the overall experience, but time will tell as to whether it will prevent a recurrence of the moldy damp patch I have now covered. 27 Mar 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Zinsser Self-Priming Paint Very good product we will see if the long term effect of the reduction in mould growth works. 18 Mar 2016

Answer: 
Zinsser Self-Priming Paint is an excellent product for painting bathroom wall tiles, please be aware however that neither this or any other Zinsser products are suitable for application to floor tiles. For more durability, given the environment and type of surface you wish to paint, we would also advise the use of Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Primer Sealer (Product Code: 10135 for 1 litre. 10136 for 2.5 litre. 4224G for 5 litre) prior to the application of Zinsser Self-Priming Paint. Ensure the surface is free from any contaminants and anything that could interfere with adhesion by washing down with hot water and liquid detergent, frequently changing the water then degrease overall with methylated spirit frequently changing the cloth. Ensure the grout is fully dry before overcoating. Prime all bare ceramic tiles with one full coat of Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Primer Sealer allowing a minimum of 1 hour drying time before decorating the primed surface with two full coats of Zinsser Self-Priming Paint allowing a minimum drying time of two hours between coats.

Answer: 
I'm sorry the Zinsser Self Priming Paint is not suitable for painting a shower tray, this type of surface needs a product that can withstand immersion in water and regular cleaning with harsh chemicals, we do not have a product within our range that would be suitable for the demands of this type of project.

Answer: 
Zinsser Self-Priming Paint White is an excellent product for interior timber surfaces. It will provide a quick drying, non-yellowing, durable finish. Most of the time pine furniture is pre-varnished. As this type of surface is very difficult to gain adhesion to, we recommend to prime first with Zinsser B-I-N Primer Sealer (product code: 29661 for 1 litre, 10130 for 2.5 litre, 3298G for 5 litre). Zinsser B-I-N Primer is our ultimate adhesion promoting primer for varnished timber and can be applied to surfaces without the need for prior sanding. Please ensure the surfaces to be primed are thoroughly cleaned with a detergent and warm water solution, rinse and allow to dry. Once dry, give a final wipe over the surfaces with methylated spirits to remove any remaining surface contaminants that may interfere with adhesion. In most cases only one coat is necessary and it can be over coated with Zinsser Self-Priming Paint after 45 minutes.

Answer: 
As this type of surface is very difficult to gain a strong adhesion too, we would recommend the use of an adhesion promoting primer before the application of Zinsser Self-Priming Paint. The recommended primer would be Zinsser B-I-N Primer Sealer (product code: 29661 for 1 litre, 10130 for 2.5 litre, 3298G for 5 litre). Zinsser B-I-N Primer is our ultimate adhesion promoting primer for this type of application and can be applied to surfaces without the need for prior sanding. Please ensure the surfaces to be primed are thoroughly cleaned with a detergent and warm water solution, rinse and allow to dry. Once dry, give a final wipe over the surfaces with methylated spirits to remove any remaining surface contaminants that may interfere with adhesion. In most cases only one coat is necessary and it can be over coated with the desired topcoat after 45 minutes. Zinsser B-I-N Primer is compatible with most conventional water-based or solvent-based decorative topcoats.

Answer: 
Zinsser Self Priming Paint contains a biocide to protect the dried paint from mould, when the mould spores land on the surface of the paint the biocide acts to stop the mould growth cycle. For the biocide to be effective the Zinsser Self Priming Paint must be left as the final finish, painting over is not recommended.

Answer: 
Having used this as a pure white product in the bathroom of a rental flat I had some left so I experimented with mixing it with a small sample pot of darkish pink paint to produce a nice pale pink colour. I painted this on my own bathroom wall and it was great. No mould yet 6 months later and a good finish.
I would say that as long as the colour you want to achieve is not too dark and you take care to mix enough to cover the whole area you want to paint, you can just mix your own colour using this paint -no need to paint over it.
