Why do painters prefer Zinsser Cover Stain Primer Sealer?
Zinsser Cover Stain Primer Sealer is specially designed to meet the high performance demands and universal applications professional painters require. Pros need a primer that performs reliably on any surface, interior or exterior, and at a price that permits high volume purchasing.
On interior surfaces, Zinsser Cover Stain Primer Sealer's quick dying film and high hiding pigment provide outstanding stain killing and enamel undercoating performance. Stains of all kinds are permanently sealed so topcoats are blemish free.
Zinsser Cover Stain Primer Sealer is especially effective on nicotine and water stains. New wood trim can be primed, sanded and topcoated the same day, saving the professional time and money. Remove wax and degrease surfaces using Grax-it, or other suitable proprietory degreaser.
Clean brushes and equipment with Paint Brush Cleaner - a water-soluble solvent cleaner. We always recommend applying a clear universal wood preservative to bare exterior timbers before overcoating, paying particular attention to cut end grain, this provides better protection against wood rotting fungi in the UK's wet climate.
On exterior surfaces, Zinsser CoverStain Primer Sealer's unique whole house formulation delivers full penetration and flexibility on all surfaces, especially dimensionally unstable wood siding and trim, where few oil-based primers succeed.
Zinsser Cover-Stain Primer Sealer seals redwood and cedar bleed, resists cracking, checking and peeling and is compatible with all finish paints. No other oil based primer can do what Professional Duty Zinsser Cover Stain Primer Sealer can.
