Rated 5 out of 5 by from Zinnser BIN Primer We purchased a resale home from people who were chain smokers the entire house needed to be repainted and in the process we needed to cover the nicotine staining and kill the odour from the smoke. We bought 2 large pails of this Zinnser BIN primer sealer, although it stunk really bad and was hard on the eyes in enclosed areas it covered the staining and the smell in 2 coats. I would strongly reccommend this product to anyone looking to cover heavy staining or odours it worked wonderful now when we walk into our home it's freshness we smell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great smelly stuff Yeah it stinks. But it dries fast so the smell doesn' linger. Goes on great and seals everything in. We've used two of the giant pails so far on this house we recently bought that was just covered in nicotine stains from the previous chain-smoking occupants. When we moved in, it just stunk. After sealing the main rooms with this stuff it smells just fine, and there's no yellow leaking through or anything. I highly recommend it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from zinsser bin primer We used this product in our bathroom. Very good coverage of moisture stains, it's application was easy and smooth, it's not too thick and dries in no time; we did 2 coats and then 2 coats of the new behr kitchen and bath paint and the finish is absolutely flawless. My only complaint - which is why we didn't give it 5 stars is that it smells very strong - the fumes are intense so make sure to use it in a well ventilated area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Sealer for wood knots After many failed attempts, this is the only product I have found that will completely seal wood knots. All other attempts resulted in the wood knots bleeding through in less than 2 years, but not with this product. It is well worth the money. Highly recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not quite as good as advertised I will admit I haven't tried other products, I bought this one because it said it would cover, in particular, graffiti. I had a wall covered with Sharpie, result of kids going a bit nuts, all colors. I first scrubbed the wall with alcohol and baking soda which took out the worst of it, but I had to put 3 coats of this primer in some areas to fully cover the writing. I was surprised how thin the primer was, I was expecting a thicker liquid to fully coat the wall. I rated it as good because at the end of the day it did do the job. And when they say ventilate the room well, they are not kidding. I was a bit woozy after applying a coat, and I had a window open and a fan going.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works every time I've been using this product for about 25 years, I've tried the water based zinsser but it doesn't always work. This shellac base product pretty much guarantees a one coat cover of any and all stains. I build cabinets for a living and we use this stuff in our spray booth when it comes time to refinish cabinets etc. It is a professional product so it will have an unpleasant odour to it. It dries very fast ready to spray lacquer based paint within a half hour...definitely worth the money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works, but be very careful This was reviewed on youtube as one of the best primers for sanded or unsanded laminate surfaces under latex or 'chalk' paint. As a shellac primer, it requires a shorter cure time, BUT it is extremely harsh to work with. A mask may not be enough, and if I use this again I would definitely use a respirator. Cover the area you're working in well, because if any droplets splash on an unintended surface, you may not be able to get them off, even if you act quickly. This primer adheres quickly and viciously! Under latex paint it still requires cure time, and will scratch/peel off easily even if it appears dry until it is fully cured.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Notch This is without question the best primer sealer that I have ever used. It is the only product I have found that will completely seal wood knots and if it can seal wood knots then it can seal anything. It may cost a bit more than other brands, but it is well worth the money. I highly recommend.

I've install new R2i Millwork PVC wainscot panels and moldings, and is pre-finished (no need to paint). I would like it to match the same "white" as the rest of the room. Will this primer adhere to PVC plastic?

Asked by: renovator
I believe this will work but I suggest you try it first. Put some of the bin primer on and let it dry, which will not take long. Once it is dry attempt to peel it off with your finger nail and you will have your answer.

For wall paneling in a 1970 house which primer will be best please? Do you have to sand the paneling or is there a primer that will stick without sanding? Thanks

Asked by: Marietjie
I would ensure the panelling is clean but it should not need a sanding. Bin primer sticks to everything and dries very quickly. It is quite toxic so ensure you wear a proper mask when you are using it on a large area. For a water based version your should try the 123 primer. It is not as toxic and works just as well, although  it does not do as good a job of stain blocking.

The urethane on my interior wood window sills is peeling because my windows frost up in the winter and the frost melts and lays on the window.  I want to use a product that seals the wood and won't peel.  Will BIN Untimate Perfomance Primer Sealer work?  

Asked by: Bluenose
The shellac based product would be best

I understand this works great but I also understand that the product is thin. How will it work over a plywood ceiling in my shop with a roller and brush? Will it splatter all over?

Asked by: Glenn
If you’re painting over your head, it will definitely splatter and drip.

Is this primer good for bonding to tile floor before painting?

Asked by: Sarah88
Hi Sarah88, Our Zinsser BIN can be applied to a tiled floor before painting. However, it needs to cure hard (7-21 days, depending on temperature and humidity) before topcoating with paint. As well, we do not recommend this primer in bathrooms or areas with a lot of humidity as it does not hold up well to moisture.
