Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't be without it! I moved into my 1900 single brick house 10 years ago & have been plagued by mould ever since. I can't put anything against the walls & was constantly cleaning black mould off the external walls, especially in the kitchen. My bedroom is in the attic & I looked in the eaves storage one day to find thick, fluffy white & black mould all over the external wall. I painted my kitchen with this two years ago & haven't had a single speck of mould since. I continue to dry my washing on the radiators on this wall & still nothing. I also painted the attic walls about a year ago & so far there is no mould there either! I have even seen condensation running down the walls, but still nothing! I keep coming back to this paint to slowly paint all the external walls in my house! It has saved my sanity!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for difficult areas Used in a damp shower room with previous mould and flaking issues. Simple to apply and very good finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very impressed As a novice DIY'er I read a few reviews of this paint and I have to say it is brilliant. It needs thoroughly mixing before you use it and it is quite runny compared to other paints. The first coat forms a good base that looks a little unimpressive, but it's the second coat where it comes alive and looks so much better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Covers mould stain Covers all the condensation mould stain and hopefully will prevent more occurring

varished doors

Can I paint straight onto varnished wooden doors?
Asked by: Androo65
Hello Thank you for your recent enquiry. Zinsser Self-Priming paint is perfect for applying directly to most surfaces without the need to prime or sand. Varnish is a very hard product for any paint to gain good key to and for this is would be the same for the Zinsser paint. To obtain great adhesion and promote good key, we would recommend applying BIN primer (29661 & 10130) before coating with the Self-Priming paint. One or two coats of the primer should be applied by brush or roller at a coverage rate of approximately 10m2/litre/coat, with a re-coat time of 45 minutes. Once this is dry, the top coat may be applied. We recommend the surface is sound and clean before applying the primer. For this sand back any loose or flaking areas then wash with hot soapy water, rinse with warm then wipe with methylated spirits if possible. I hope this helps.

comparable to satinwood??

could you please tell me if this paint is comparable to a satinwood paint that is used fro skirting door frames ect? thanks
Asked by: tel888
Hi. Thanks for your enquiry. The Perma-White can be applied directly to most interior, previously painted surfaces providing they have been suitably prepared i.e. with hot soapy water then rinsed with fresh warm water to remove detergent and when dry a good wipe with methylated spirit. Two coats are required in total which can be applied by either a brush or a roller at a coverage rate of 10m2/litre/coat. The matt finish does will have less (almost none) of a sheen than the satinwood, if you prefer more of a sheen but not as much of a gloss try the Perma-White Satin (1 litre = 13040 or 2.5 litres = 62096). I hope this helps.

Can this be used to cover old gloss paint on walls and ceilings?

Most of the walls and ceiling of my utility room are coated with white gloss paint. Will this product cover the gloss paint? How do I prepare the old surface?
Asked by: Rosabelle
Hello Thank you for your enquiry. Zinsser Self-Priming Matt Paint will be perfect for applying to the walls and ceiling of your utility room. Two coats of the product should be applied by brush or roller at a coverage rate of approximately 10m2/litre/coat, with a re-coat time of 2 hours. Before applying the paint, we recommend the wall is lightly abraded to help the paint adhere to the wall on this glossy surface. Once the surfaces have a key to them, the area should be cleaned, preferably by cleaning with hot soapy water and rinsing with warm. Once this has dried, you can begin applying the Self-Priming Paint. I hope this helps.

Is this suitable for painting on top of a window that has a wood stain on it? Would it also serve as a primer to go under an oil based gloss paint?

Asked by: CazzyDiy94
Hello Thank you for your recent enquiry. Zinsser Self-Priming paint is able to be applied as a two coat system on most surfaces and is a durable, cleanable paint finish in itself with a biocide in the finished coating to resist the regrowth of mould or mildew. Being a water based paint, we recommend using a separate primer to ensure there is no bleed through to the top coat from the previously applied wood stain. Our recommended product for this interior project would be the BIN primer (29661 or 10130)), which has a methylated spirit and shellac base which will hold back any staining and can have be over-coated with any decorative top coat, oil or water based. One or two coats of the primer should be applied by brush or roller at a coverage rate of approximately 10m2/litre/coat, with a re-coat time of 45 minutes. The B-I-N primer is based on shellac and methylated spirit so it does have a strong odour during application and drying, ensure that the area is well ventilated with the doors and windows open to help remove the solvent odours from the room. Before applying the primer, we would advise to ensure the surface is clean, dry and sound, free of any dirts or grease to promote the best adhesion for the primer. I hope this helps.
