Zinsser has been a staple of the DIY industry for many years, building up a reputation for designing tools that have helped people tackle any number of decorating problems. Below we have a look at their primers and sealers and show how they can be of help to you.
Zinsser Primer – There are a whole range of products that are designed to prep walls, ceilings, tiles and other surfaces for treatment or decoration. Collectively they are referred to as primers. Zinsser manufactures a range of primers which do different jobs.
Zinsser Cover Stain Primer – Primer that’s intended to work on surfaces stained with water marks, nicotine, graffiti, rust or mildew stains. If these surfaces are painted directly, the stains will probably show through the paint or leach into wallpaper, causing blemishes.
Zinsser Peel Stop Primer – This is specially designed for use on flaking, cracked or peeling paint. It will create a smooth and flat surface that is ready to take another layer of paint over the top. As well as working on plaster, wood, cement and metal surfaces in the home, Peel Stop Primer can also be used on external surfaces.
Zinsser BullsEye 123 Primer – This can be used inside and outside where damp is causing a problem, typically in laundry rooms, bathrooms and kitchens. Unlike some damp or mould remedies, it is non-toxic. It seals stains caused by mould so that they don’t leach into future layers of paint or wallpaper. It also works to prevent future mould growth.
Zinsser BullsEye 123 Plus Primer – A stronger version of the above. This is for use on pretty much any surface affected by mould and will seal in mildew and water to make the surface ready for painting or wallpapering.
Zinsser Sealants – As well as the range of primers, Zinsser also sell Zinsser Grandz, a specialist sealer and bond coat which is designed for use on porous surfaces like plaster, plasterboard, wallpaper, lining paper or filler to create a smooth surface that’s ready for painting.
When it comes to home decorating, preparation is key. So use the Zinsser primer or sealer that’s right for your home to make sure you get a professional looking end result.
