Zinsser B-I-N is the choice product of restoration professionals thanks to its legendary adhesion to all surfaces, including smooth, dense and hard to paint areas like over glossy paint or varnish, ceramic tiles, glass or PVC surfaces. There’s no need to sand or prepare the surface beyond basic cleaning, for Zinsser B-I-N to bond to the surface and cure fast, ready for a topcoat.
Water stains, grease, oil, soot, rust, mildew, tannin bleed and graffiti are now a thing of the past thanks to Zinsser B-I-N, too, thanks to its excellent stain killing power. With one coat, historic stains, fungal degradation, and surface discolouration can be treated in preparation for a striking new topcoat. It’s not just stains, however, that this product will block – it also blocks, covers and removes odours, too. There is no other product on the market that can duplicate the odour sealing properties of this shellac-based paint. That means no more nicotine, smoke damage, legacy fireplace smells, or mould and mildew odours!
B-I-N is touch dry in approximately 15 mins, and can be recoated in 45 minutes – that’s incredibly fast for a primer. It manages this through its unique alcohol solvent, which evaporates quickly – leaving no residential odour – leaving you to apply a topcoat, faster than ever before.
As well as for use on challenging work and wall surfaces, Zinsser B-I-N is a fantastic wood sealer – perfect for sealing tough knots and sap streaks that tend to bleed through ordinary primers and paint topcoats. It really is the perfect all-surface primer.
New and previously painted dry wall, cured plaster/cement based coatings, wood (pine, fir, cedar, redwood, plywood, previously varnished or woodstained), metal (aluminium, steel, copper), vinyl, fibreglass, cured masonry (stucco, concrete block, poured concrete, brick). Blocks stains and odours resulting from water & fire damage, seals stains from dark colours, gr ease, rust, creosote, asphalt, crayon, lipstick, graffiti, markers, knots, sap streaks, tannin bleed, etc.
