Rated 4 out of 5 by from Zinzer primer Really rate this product. Going from dark varnished wood up my staircase and all of the skirtings to white, this primer going on first made for a easy transition. Saved so much time so I didn’t have to sand everywhere. Great primer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant product This product is brilliant. Although a little pricey, it’s worth it. Have been using it to cover lots of ‘orange’pine cladding throughout my house. Perfect as a primer base coat. No knots showing through at all. Now using it on rough sawn timber stained ceiling beams,in readiness for lightening the ceilings.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent enough Used to cover dark varnish before painting white. An expense primer and would benefits from 2 Coats. I only used one and needed an additional 3 coats of good quality paint to hide the dark wood.

Can this paint be used in large quantities to prime walls and ceiling on all rooms in a static caravan? Including children’s bedroom?

Will this paint prime the glossy plastic internal walls and ceiling in a caravan ? Also Is this safe to use in a children’s bedroom?
Asked by: MummaM
Hello Thank you for your recent enquiry. While BIN is perfect for the project you are looking to undertake and is safe to use in a child's bedroom, it does have a high odour while curing and we recommend ventilating the areas while applying. As an alternative, if you are only looking for a primer which can promote excellent adhesion, you may wish to use the water based Bulls Eye 123 primer (10135 & 10136) as this has lower odour for the relatively confined space you will be applying this. One or two coats of either primer should be applied by brush or roller at a coverage rate of approximately 10m2/L/coat, with a re-coat time of 45 minutes for the BIN and 1 hour for Bulls Eye 123. Either of these primers can have any decorative top coat applied, oil or water based, when dry. To promote the best adhesion the area should be as clean as possible, to achieve this we recommend washing with hot soapy water, rinsing with warm water, then wiping over with methylated spirits. I hope this helps.

I want to paint over whiteboard paint, which is rustoleum based. Would this primer work?

Asked by: Branwen
Hello Thank you for your recent enquiry. With whiteboard paint, this may only be painted over by itself as it is a very difficult surface to gain adhesion to. If you are looking to decorate the area this has been applied to, we would recommend removing this first using paint stripper, being mindful of the surface this has been applied to. I hope this helps.

Will this seal internal damp brickwork?

Asked by: TB23
Hello Thank you for your recent enquiry. Our primers, including BIN, aren't designed to be applied to damp surfaces with over 12% moisture content, as they will have difficulty in adhering also, if there is an ongoing damp issue the primer coating is likely to fail as the water will push this away from the surface. We would advise any cause for the damp is identified and resolved then the primer may be used once the area is dry. I hope this helps.

Yellow staining coming through emulsion on coving and cracking on walls which used to be wall papered

Will BIN Primer Sealer cover it?
Asked by: JohnMcClane
Hello Thank you for your recent enquiry. BIN primer/sealer will be perfect for blocking the staining on the coving and shoudl be applied in one or two coats by brush or roller at a coverage rate of approximately 10m2/L/coat, re-coat time is 45 minutes. When dry either oil or water based paints may be applied over this. For the cracking on the walls if these are hairline and look like 'alligatoring', then Peel Stop (9371P) would be the best product to use over this area to bridge these cracks allowing you to repaint. The surface should be sound and clean before you apply one coat of the product by brush or roller at a coverage rate of approximately 8m2/L. This has a 1 hour re-coat time. I hope this helps.

New painted coving has yellow coming through and cracking on emulsioned walls which used to be wallpapered.

Newly water-based emulsion put on old coving has yellow staining coming through and some previously wallpapered walls have lots of small cracks coming through the new water-based emulsion. Will this product fix it?
Asked by: JohnMcClane
Hello Thank you for your recent enquiry. BIN would be excellent to block staining on the coving as this is our go to interior stain block. The area should be clean, dry and sound prior to applying one or two coats of the primer by brush or roller at a coverage rate of approximately 10m2/L/coat, with a re-coat time of 45 minutes. Once this has dried, your choice of decorative top coat may be applied either oil or water based. With regards to the emulsioned walls if the cracks showing have an alligatoring effect this may be caused by there having been too much residual paste on the wall prior to painting. The only product we would be able to suggest to cover this would be Peel Stop (9371P). One coat of this would need to be applied by brush or roller at a coverage rate of approximately 8m2/L with a 2 hour re-coat time. The wall should be clean and sound prior to applying the product. I hope this helps.
