Description

Zinsser AllCoat Exterior Satin (Water Based) is an ultimate performance all surface paint. Designed for the long term decoration (up to 15 years) of timber, metal, masonry, plastic, concrete, cladding and more, it forms a vapour permeable, low maintenance water-shedding coating, re-coatable in 1 hour.

This product contains a biocide to protect the dried coating against fungal degradation.

questions Chris R on 2021-08-26 12:14:12
Question: 

Hi, I have a shiplap shed that has been treated 6 months ago with Barrettine Wood Protective Treatment. The instructions from Barrettine state: "Should be capable of being overcoated with solvent based products within days, however it will require a weathering period of approximately 3 months before water based product can be over applied." I tried Protek Royal water based recently and the adhesion and finish was poor. I'd prefer water based and Zissner AllCoat is well reviewed but should I use the solvent based version please? Or would the water based perform better then Protek Royal in this case? Thanks

Answer: 

On bare timber we would recommend the timber be primed initially with Zinsser Cover Stain prior to application of Zinsser Allcoat Exterior Satin Water Based. 

questions David  on 2021-08-11 15:50:22
Question: 

Can this be painted on the underside of a glass table for outdoors usage or would I need to Prime the glass first. Also if I just got the Bulls eye 1.2.3 primer in the colour I needed could I just use the primer on its own without having to buy both primer and top coat.

Answer: 

Please be aware when painting glass brush strokes will be visible through the glass. Assuming the glass is clean, dry, sound and prepared as detailed in the technical data sheet, the glass should be primed first with Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 prior to application.

We would recommend using a primer and topcoat assuming visible brush strokes are acceptable.

questions Gary Waring on 2021-08-10 14:03:01
Question: 

Can I use Zinsser All Coat Exterior on a new pressure-treated wooden fence? Thanks, Gary

Answer:

questions Andy on 2021-08-09 12:15:31
Question: 

Is Allcoat exterior satin suitable for painting twin wall polycarbonate sheets to prevent light ingress.

Answer: 

Assuming you are looking to paint the internal faces of the polycarbonate we would recommend testing for compatibility and adhesion prior to full application as Zinsser Allcoat Exterior Water based will not adhere to all types of polycarbonate.

It should be degreased with Zinsser Universal Degreaser & Cleaner and prepared as detailed in the technical data sheet.

If you are looking to paint the external face of the polycarbonate, it is clean, dry, sound and prepared as detailed in the technical data sheet we can recommend Britannia Aquashield Eco.

Please be aware that brush strokes will be visible through the panels.

questions Jo on 2021-05-27 18:16:43
Question: 

Can I use Zinsser Allcoat to paint asbestos drainpipes and downpipe?

questions Mike on 2021-05-18 14:56:12
Question: 

Hi, we have some timber shed doors previously treated with Barrettine Wood Preserver - oil/ spirit based. Would Zinsser All Coast Exterior Water Based satin be compatible with this product? The technical datasheet seems to only state suitable wood preserver prior to application. Thanks in advance

Answer: 

No, please check the Technical Data Sheet for the wood preserver, this states it can only be over painted with suitable solvent based options.

Zinsser Allcoat Exterior Solvent Based may be suitable, but we would recommend testing for compatibilty and adhesion prior to full application.

questions Elaine Gray on 2021-04-21 09:02:20
Question: 

I have a wooden deck rail which had to be filled in certain areas with Ronseal coloured filler. Now when I come to stain the rail the filler is not taking on the stain (teak). Could I use your wood coloured paints and would I need a primer. Thanks.

Answer: 

Assuming this wooden rail is not being walked on, it is clean, dry, sound and prepared as detailed in the this paint could be used.

We would recommend priming first with Zinsser Cover Stain and testing for compatibility/adhesion to the previously stained timber and the filler.

Answer:

questions Daniel parry on 2020-06-15 23:44:46
Question: 

Hi can this be applied to old upvc windows and doors with a Graco 9.5 hvlp sprayer and if so does it need to be diluted Thanks

Answer: 

Assuming the aged UPVC is clean, dry and abraded prior to application we can recommend Zinsser Allcoat Exterior Waterbased. This can be applied by brush roller or airless spray only.

This can be thinned if absolutely necessary (10% max with water).

Usually it would need to be thinned more in order for it to pass through a HVLP, which is why we do not recommend it.

questions Dave Jones on 2020-06-04 07:27:48
Question: 

Hi, I would like to paint a garage door (steel) that has been previously painted with exterior gloss paint many years ago. Firstly, I would like to know if I need to use a primer in addition to rubbing down and cleaning with methylated spirits. Secondly our front door is Chartwell Green do you have a nearest colour match recommendation For that please.

Answer: 

Assuming the previously painted steel door is clean, dry and abraded Zinsser Allcoat Exterior Waterbased can be applied directly. If any areas are back to bare steel we can recommend priming with Bulls Eye 1-2-3. Zinsser Allcoat is available in many RAL and BS colours, please see the colour chart on the product page so you can find an appropriate match.

Question: 

I would like to repaint my metal garage door which has a powder coated finish, from white to grey. I've read your advice to abrade, use Bulls eye 123 primer and I will use All Coat Exterior satin. Would I be better to use the Solvent or Water based option? (The door is well exposed to the sun)

Answer: 

Assuming the door is dry, sound and prepared as you stated above we can recommend the waterbased option for this application at this time of year.

At temperatures down to approximately 5°C we recomend the solvent based option.

questions mark  on 2020-05-17 11:57:03
Question: 

I would like to respray our naff brown upvc windows and door. I assume spraying would give a better finish and have looked to get an electric paint sprayer. I wondered if this will need diluting and if so, by how much and using what? White spirit or water? Thanks

questions Alan Fielding on 2020-02-04 15:57:52
Question: 

Hi, Would Zinsser AllCoat Exterior Satin (Water Based) be suitable for use on an up and over steel garage door 12’ wide and subject to full hot sunlight in the afternoon causing expansion? Is this an acrylic-laytex paint? Regards Alan

Answer: 

Providing you are looking to apply the AllCoat Exterior Satin Water Based to galvanised steel, then two coats may be applied by brush or roller at a coverage rate of approximately 10m2/litre/coat directly onto the bare surface. If this is ferrous steel, then a red oxide or zinc phosphate primer will need to be applied prior to using the AllCoat Exterior Satin. The paint should be applied when the air and substrate temperature is 10°C and rising, relative humidity less than 80%. Ensure there is no risk or rain, fog, frost or condensation from affecting the applied paint before it has had a chance to fully cure.

We recommend to ensure the surface to be painted is clean, dry, sound and free from any surface contamination such as dirt, oils, grease, mould, mildew, rust, loose or flaking paint etc that are likely to affect the performance of any subsequent coats of paint; to ensure this we advise the following prior to painting, clean down with hot soapy water, rinse with warm water and when dry have a good wipe over with methylated spirits to promote good adhesion.

Hello, I've just bought zinnser all coat satin in anthracite to paint garage door and uPVC front door. Original plan was to use roller and brush but I have a hvlp sprayer, can I use this and would I need to add a small amount of water to the paint or would this have a negative affect?

The Zinsser Allcoat Exterior products should not be thinned for application, they can be applied by brush, roller or airless spray but not HVLP as this would require too much thinning which will have an adverse effect on the performance of the product.

The panels are to be shot blasted and spray primed with Rustoleum 1080. Followed by 2 coats of Rustoleum Satin Combi colour.

questions Yohanna on 2019-04-26 14:59:12
Question: 

Hi, I need to paint an exterior aluminium roof fascia that was spot spray painted by the builder and now the spray painted areas are fading. Can I use All Coat anthracite grey to paint the whole fascia with a roller? Some of the fascia has silicone where it overlaps, can I simply paint over that with All Coat? Thanks.

Answer: 

Zinsser AllCoat Exterior Satin (Water Based) will not bond to silicone, this would need to be removed, the surface then cleaned to remove traces of silicone. Zinsser AllCoat Exterior Satin (Water Based) will take to the previously painted fascia. The gaps can be resealed after painting with a suitable sealant.

questions Simon on 2018-07-30 13:05:30
Question: 

At our premises of artists' studios, can we use 'Zinsser Allcoat Exterior - Satin' (colour mixed to a RAL ref) for interior surfaces also? ie for toilet walls on top of melamine primed with 'Zinsser Bulls Eye 123 Plus'. Concerned about Fire Regs.

Answer: 

Zinsser have not carried out fire tests on melamine with any of their products so can’t offer any product which would meet a class 1 or 0 fire spec on this substrate.

Envirograf offer the following system for melamine that would achieve BS Class 0 Surface Spread of Flame.

1 coat of Envirograf ES/VFR Primer applied at 12m² per litre
2 coats of Envirograf ES/VFR White Fire Protection Coating applied at 12m² per litre/per coat
1 coat of Envirograf HW Excel Top Coat (Any RAL colour and Satin or Gloss finish) applied at 12m² per litre

We would recommend checking with Cuprinol to make sure the Ducks Back product can be overpainted, if it has weathered for 3 years it may be OK but some of these types of products contain waxes which will affect adhesion of subsequent paint coatings. Provided there is minimal wax content then Zinsser AllCoat Exterior Satin (Water Based) can be used.

Answer: 

Zinsser AllCoat Exterior Satin (Solvent Based) can be applied directly to plywood and can be used at lower temperatures. If you want to use Zinsser AllCoat Exterior Satin you will have to wait for warmer weather and first prime the plywood with Zinsser Cover Stain.

Question: Hi, I've just painted my exterior door in Sandtex 10 year Exterior gloss paint but I'm not happy with the results, even after applying a primer and two coats of gloss. Could I paint over this gloss paint with your satin exterior paint without keying and applying an undercoat? Also, do you offer a Sage colour?
Answer: 

Zinsser AllCoat Exterior Satin will be OK for this, however as we are heading towards cooler weather however it may be advisable to go for the Solvent Grade. Drying conditions will be poorer at this time of year which will affect the drying of the water based AllCoat. This is likely to cause issues if the coating gets caught in a shower of rain before it has fully cured. The AllCoat can go on directly without sanding or priming provided the surface is clean, existing coating is sound etc.
2 coats should be sufficient provided the colour of the Sandtex Gloss and the sage green you require is similar.

Question: Would like to paint an old light green powder coated metal furniture set - round table and four chairs - which is in reasonable condition save for a few small scratches that are showing signs of rust. Is this the right product for the job and can I paint directly on to the powder coating or does it need keying first? With care will I achieve a good finish with this paint or is it going to show the brush strokes?
Answer: 

Yes this product can be applied directly to powdercoat surfaces, clean and lightly sand to provide a key before application.

Any areas of rust should be prepared and primed first with something like Rust-Oleum 3369/3380 CombiPrimer Anti-Corrosion.

Question: Hi - I am just buying a new wooden summerhouse which has be treated as standard, but would like to paint in in blue and white - is you paint suitable for direct application without having a primer or undercoat?
Answer: 

Zinsser AllCoat Exterior Satin is self-priming and will adhere to any sound surface. The first coat of Zinsser AllCoat Exterior Satin primes and seals the surface, providing a base for the second coat. The second and third coats (if required) complete the sealing process while providing additional moisture resistance and protection. Before painting, fill all nail holes and gouges with a proprietary filler. Where necessary, spot prime knots and sap streaks with Zinsser B-I-N. For new or unpainted cedar, redwood, or other resinous timbers prime with Zinsser Cover Stain.
