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.

Zinsser AllCoat Exterior Satin (Water Based) contains a biocide to protect the dried coating against fungal degradation. Designed for all exterior surfaces, Zinsser AllCoat Exterior Satin (Water Based) is ideal for new or previously painted wood, UPVC, galvanising, metals, cladding, weathered bitumen, stucco, brick, stone, cured concrete and more. Zinsser AllCoat Exterior Satin (Water Based) is self-priming and will bond to existing glossy paints without sanding. For most jobs, there is no need to purchase a separate primer. After removing existing mould and mildew, two coats of Zinsser AllCoat Exterior Satin (Water Based) will ensure that any exterior looks bright and beautiful for years.

Recommended Uses

  • Timber
  • Metal
  • Masonry
  • Plastic
  • Concrete
  • Cladding

Zinsser AllCoat Exterior (Water Based) is also available in Matt and Gloss finishes, and in a Solvent Based Satin Finish - ideal for low application in lower temperatures.

Surface Preparation

Surfaces should be clean, dry, sound and free of any contamination that may interfere with adhesion. Remove all loose or peeling paint and chalky paint residue. Sand edges of any remaining paint film until smooth. Special precautions should be taken during surface preparation of pre-1960 paint surfaces as they may contain harmful lead. Avoid the inhalation of dust. Wear a suitable face mask if dry sanding. New concrete, masonry and other related surfaces must be cured at least 30 days before priming. Remove all existing mould and mildew before painting. To effectively remove mould and mildew, dirt and chalky paint residue, use Zinsser Mould Killer & Remover or an exterior house cleaner following the manufacturer’s instructions. Timber at risk from decay or insect attack should be treated with an appropriate preservative.

2 Coat System

Zinsser AllCoat Exterior Satin (Water Based) is self-priming and will adhere to most sound surfaces. It bonds to existing glossy paints without sanding. The first coat of Zinsser AllCoat Exterior Satin (Water Based) primes and seals the surface, providing a base for the topcoat. The topcoat completes the sealing process while providing additional moisture resistance and protection. Before painting, fill all nail holes and gouges. 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.


Shake or stir well before using. Apply with synthetic bristle brush, roller or sprayer. For airless spraying, use a .017” tip and high-medium (2000-2500 PSI) pressure. Ensure air and surface temperature are between 10 & 32°C and humidity is less than 85% during application and cure of the product. Avoid painting in direct sunlight and maintain a “wet edge” to avoid lapping. Ensure conditions during application and cure are favourable, do not apply if there is a likelihood of rain, frost, fog or condensation affecting the freshly applied paint before it has fully cured.

Drying Time

At normal temperatures i.e. 20°C and 60% RH, Zinsser AllCoat Exterior Satin (Water Based) dries to recoat in 1 hour and will be hard dry after 4 hours. Full adhesion and hardness develop in 7 days.

Colour Range

Zinsser AllCoat Exterior Satin (Water Based) is available in a full range of BS4800, RAL and NCS colours. Multiple containers of tinted paint should be intermixed (boxed) to ensure colour uniformity.


Up to 12m² per litre on non-porous surfaces. On porous surfaces coverage will be reduced e.g. sawn timber - 4-8m² per litre. Planed timber - 8-12m² per litre. Normal application is 2 coats, however an additional coat should be applied to areas of high exposure such as sills and fascia boards.


Clean application tools, spatters and spills immediately with warm water and liquid detergent; rinse with water. Dried paint on brushes can be removed with Zinsser B-I-N Brush Cleaner & Restorer. Follow equipment manufacturer’s directions to clean spray equipment. Remove dried product with a household cleaner such as Zinsser Universal Cleaner & Degreaser, rinse with water.

Shelf Life and Storage

2 years from date of manufacture in unopened containers. Store indoors at 5 – 25°C and Protect from frost.


  • Not intended for application to exterior floors, decks or any surface subject to water immersion or prolonged contact with water.
  • It is recommended that unweathered / new powder coatings or stoved enamels are to be abraded and degreased thoroughly before applying AllCoat Exterior.
  • Not suitable for application onto new plastisol or new powder coating - These surfaces must be fully weathered.

questions janine  on 17/04/2019

I'm going to use zinsser all coat on exterior wooden shop front. first I'll sand the wood to get any flakey off and wood fill etc but can I just paint straight over the wood with all coat or would you use different primer first?


On any areas of bare timber/filler we would first recommend priming with Zinsser Cover Stain.

questions Annabel on 10/04/2019

I want to use Zinsser allcoat exterior satin (water based) paint on unpainted mdf for fitted wardrobes. Should I prime it first and if so can it be any mdf primer or does it need to be a specific Zinnsser one?


MDF should be primed with 1 coat of Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 followed by 2 coats of either Zinsser Allcoat Exterior Satin (Water Based) or Zinsser Perma-White Interior. The surface should be free of any contaminant prior to application.

questions miriam  on 25/02/2019

Hi, Can I used this on interior woodwork? thank you



questions Tom Barton  on 13/11/2018

Can you use this product for interior applications, for example a staircase with metal spindles and railings?


Yes, all of the Zinsser AllCoat Exterior (Water Based) products can be used internally. You still need to prime certain substrates as indicated on the tech data sheet, hardwoods, stained areas, etc. Please note Zinsser AllCoat Exterior (Solvent Based) products cannot be used for interior projects.

questions Craig Beardmore  on 19/09/2018

Hi would the all coat paint stick on varnished pinr wood? And would i need to do anything special for painting? Thanks


Assuming this is not a floor surface, if interior woodwork prime with Zinsser B-I-N first to get a good key. If exterior prime with Zinsser Cover Stain. Surfaces must be clean and sound before priming.

questions Debbie on 18/08/2018

I'm wanting to paint our upvc white back door and door frame in Ral7016, Should i buy water based or solvent Zinsser allcoat? Also do i need to prime first? Thank you.


We would recommend Zinsser AllCoat Exterior (Water Based) for this. The Satin and Gloss versions are self priming onto this type of surface, apply 2-3 coats directly, no need for a primer. If the Matt finish is required, first prime with Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3.

questions MTW on 18/08/2018

Would this paint be suitable (flexible enough) for a rolling garage door (weathered plastisol/ metal?)


We would instead recommend Rust-Oleum 3302 CombiPrimer Adhesion followed by Rust-Oleum CombiColor for this application.

questions Simon on 30/07/2018

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.


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

questions carl on 15/05/2018

Can Zinsser Allcoat be applied directly to GRP doors that have been previously painted? Thanks


Zinsser AllCoat Exterior Satin (Water Based) can be applied directly to GRP or previously painted surfaces after abrading the surfaces with a fine grade of sandpaper followed by a solvent wipe using methylated spirits for GRP or suitable detergent/cleaner degreaser for previously painted surfaces. Then apply 2 coats of the AllCoat Exterior Satin (Water Based).

questions Paul on 12/04/2018

I want to change the colour of my white composite front door to grey. Would Zinsser AllCoat Exterior Satin paint be suitable for this purpose?


Zinsser AllCoat Exterior Satin can be applied directly to UPVC with no primer required. We would advise abrading the surfaces with a fine grade of sandpaper followed by a solvent wipe using methylated spirits. Then apply 2 coats of the AllCoat Exterior Satin.

questions Jonathan on 23/03/2018

I need to paint my exterior wooden cladding on my hourse. I treated it 3 years ago with Cuprinol Ducks Back. Will Zinsser Allcoat Exterior Satin paint over this without problems?


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.

questions John browne  on 12/12/2017
Question: Can you put zinzzer all coat on Exterior hard wood ply

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.

questions Mike on 17/10/2017
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?

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.

questions Ollie on 15/10/2017
Question: I want to paint over my timber window frames which currently have a dark brown stain on them. Can I paint straight over with Zinsser allcoat exterior? Thanks

We would recommend priming first with Zinsser Cover Stain.

questions Andrew King on 10/10/2017
Question: We are fitting new hardwood windows. They have arrived with an Aluminium Primer applied. Can we apply Zinseer Allcoat Exterior White (Satin or Gloss) over this primer please?

Yes, the Water Based Zinsser AllCoat Exterior Satin or Gloss should go over an aluminium wood primer without issue.

questions alan on 16/08/2017
Question: I would like to revive a well worn wooden exterior doorstep. Is Allcoat Exterior hard wearing enough to last on a step? Or better to use Bullseye primer and a metal paint top coat? Thanks

Zinsser AllCoat Exterior Satin is not suitable for floor surfaces, we would instead recommend Smartkote Protectakote UVR for this application.

questions Claire Nicholson on 11/08/2017
Question: Hi, We are looking to paint a brand new external fence, that is currently bare timber Is this suitable please? Thanks, Claire

Yes, although we do recommend priming bare, exterior timber first with Zinsser Cover Stain.

questions kelly on 08/08/2017
Question: Need to paint a upvc window inside from white to RAL 7016, will allcoat be enough or will it need priming?

Zinsser AllCoat Exterior Satin can be applied directly to UPVC with no primer required. We would advise abrading the surfaces with a fine grade of sandpaper followed by a solvent wipe using methylated spirits. Then apply 2 coats of the AllCoat Exterior Satin.

questions julie michell on 05/08/2017
Question: We need to paint the exterior of a varnished conservatory. What product would you recommend? We've trying to do it as quickly as possible

The Zinsser AllCoat Exterior water based range would be ideal for this application. We normally recommend a coat of Zinsser Cover Stain is applied first to block any staining and existing colours.

questions Denis Morton on 24/07/2017
Question: Would allcoat be ok on bare mild steel stair stringers internal use.

No. Instead, prime with Rust-Oleum 3369/3380 CombiPrimer Anti-Corrosion followed by Rust-Oleum CombiColor.

questions Richard Luckie on 15/05/2017
Question: Could satin White be used for interior wood

It could but for interior work on wood we'd recommend Zinsser Perma-White Interior instead.

questions Nick Parker on 08/05/2017

I have old UPVC guttering for which I am going to buy new joiners etc so I will be painting old and new UPVC with AllCoat exterior satin. Do I need to put a preparatory coat of something on either to ensure adhesion.


Zinsser AllCoat Exterior Satin can be applied directly to UPVC with no primer required. We would advise abrading the surfaces with a fine grade of sandpaper followed by a solvent wipe using methylated spirits. Then apply 2 coats of the AllCoat Exterior Satin.

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?

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: I am looking to paint a section of lead flashing which has previously already being painted. Is Allcoat the correct product to use? and is a separate primer required?

Zinsser AllCoat Exterior Satin can be applied directly over existing paints after cleaning and light sanding. Apply two coats, no primer is required. If there are any areas of bare lead after preparation, prime first with a coat of Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 and the apply 2 coats of Zinsser AllCoat Exterior.

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?

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.

Question: Is Zinsser allcoat exterior satin ok for use on Medite tricoya exterior mdf? It is for a shop fascia sign which will have enamel signwriting paint for lettering.

According to the manufacturer Medite, they recommend water based paints are suitable for this substrate so on that basis Zinsser AllCoat Exterior should be fine to use.

questions Alan M on 04/04/2016
Question: Can this be used straight onto tanalised timber without any primer or knotting?

No, we would recommend treating any knots with Blackfriar Patent Knotting followed by 1 coat of Blackfriar Aluminium Wood Primer over all areas to be painted. Once dry finish with 2 coats of Zinsser AllCoat Exterior Satin in your chosen colour.

questions Norman Reed on 13/02/2016
Question: Will Allcoat Exterior bond onto (shiney) stainless steel tubing. We want to tone down hand railing that we have.

No it won't. We would recommend priming the stainless steel with Rust-Oleum 3302 CombiPrimer Adhesion and then applying two coats of Rust-Oleum CombiColor in your desired colour and finish.

questions Martin on 05/08/2015
Question: Is it necessary to use knotting on wood prior to using the Zinsser All Coat Exterior Satin? ( I have some old farm gates, previously painted where the knots have leaked some resin but what would look to be some while back)

Yes it is, where necessary, spot prime any knots and sap streaks with Zinsser B-I-N Primer Sealer. After 45mins you can then start to apply the Zinsser AllCoat Exterior Satin as requried.
