Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wouldn't use anything else This paint is great as a mould-resistant paint and as a general purpose, brilliant white, satin-finish paint. I have used this in both situations and would default to it every time. Produces a resilient and visually very pleasing satin finish and is very forgiving - no brush marks. Best finish achieved on a water-dampened surface (damp sponge is fine) - this helps to keep the paint mobile and stops the brush from getting clogged with drying paint (the paint does dry quickly which is another positive - but not on the brush!). A single coat looks good but two coats completes a great-looking job - and the second coat goes on even more easily than the first. Excellent value for money, the price might seem expensive at first but it is worth it for ease of use and quality of the finish. Left-over paint also lasts forever in the tin.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from *Professionals* Tread Carefull Remodelling and painting an existing bathroom, I turned up to the job with peeling paint and an inefficient extractor. After deciding that all should come off and start again, my go-to primer was Zinsser. Unsure of the finishing top coat, I firstly primed the whole room in B-I-N. Customer wanted mildew resistant / satin, so naturally went for Zinsser Perma White after reading some good reviews on here. Less of the boring story, more to the point; > Took 4 coats before I was satisfied (although claiming to be high-hiding (2 coats recommended) (baring in mind I had already primed!)) > Issues with flow, kinda like oil based, but wasnt. Wouldn't brush that well or you would run the risk of applying too thin (ghosting). Prone to dripping, very fine balance between too much and too thin. > Ghosting was a particular problem, hence the 4 coats. Bit of a mixed bag from me, only time will tell if it is infact mildew resistant "for up to 5yrs." I have used many high-end, professional paints, and although Zinsser is a fantastic brand, I'm not sure I'd use this again in a bathroom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great results... As a new homeowner and novice DIY-er, this was suggested as a way to bring life to cracked and chipped old skirting board. First coat adhered wonderfully after a clean and light sand of the old skirting board and door frams/facings, second coat went on a treat two hours later. Day after and our bedroom looks like new. Having already used the Zinnser BIN primer to revive an old marble fireplace, once again Zinnser have blown me away with their easy to use products and get results. One tip though would be to apply paint cautiously and gradually as it feels runny going on and so too much on the brush can lead to dribbles in the finish. Learned that after my test coat in the corner behind the bed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Zinseer products are amazing. And this one is no different. Coverage is superb, so not as pricey as it appears to be.

Got some upvc coving for cladding that is very off-white and want to paint white gloss. Can I use this to prime to ensure it doesn't peel (in a bathroom).

Answer: 
The best product to use for your project is the Zinsser Bulls Eye 123 Primer, (10135). The uPVC coving must be cleaned thoroughly, abraded with fine sandpaper and degreased with methylated spirit to prepare it for painting. 1 x coat of the Bulls Eye 123 Primer is to be applied with a brush or roller, this can then be over coated with your decorative finish after a minimum of 1 hour. Please note this product would not be used in any areas subject to direct contact with water such as shower enclosures etc.

Answer: 
Zinsser Self-Priming Paint is available only available in a white finish and self tinting would not be recommended as this would have a detrimental effect on the properties of the paint. I can also confirm that it is not recommended to paint over this product with a standard coloured topcoat as this will nullify the effectiveness of the biocide within the dried finish. When mould spores land on the surface of the paint the biocide acts to stop the mould growth cycle. Zinsser Self-Priming Paint must be left as the final finish for the biocide to be effective.

Answer: 
We would not recommend that this product is used as a mist coat on a newly plastered ceiling, it has a high resin content so would trap any residual moisture in the surface, resulting in adhesion problems or blisters at a later date. Our best recommendation would be to allow the plaster to cure and dry thoroughly, apply a thinned coat of (max 10% water) Zinsser Bulls Eye 123 Primer Sealer (4224G) to soak in and seal the surface, allow this to dry for a minimum of 1 hour before applying 2 coats of Zinsser Self Priming Paint White Matt, allowing a minimum of 2 hours between coats.
