Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3, the all-surface, all purpose, water-based primer for maintenance and decoration projects that require a stain-blocker and mould-resistant coating in one. Get great adhesion to glossy surfaces, ferrous metal substrates, glass and previously varnished woods without the need to sand or de-gloss previous coatings. And, Bulls Eye 1-2-3 is recoatable after just one hour – making it ideal for most workplace maintenance and repair tasks.
Every maintenance and project manager should have Bulls Eye 1-2-3 to hand to; cover ink and water stains quickly; hide offensive graffiti and marker pens on walls with one coating; get rid of nicotine, smoke stains and smoke damage, whilst also covering nasty, stagnant odours; bind chalky exterior surfaces, like aluminium, vinyl, or previously painted and decorated siding or trims; protection of surfaces from blistering, peeling, cracking or chipping, and keeping the topcoat looking great for years ahead; sealing porous surfaces and delivering a rust-inhibitive coating to iron railings, steel doors, metal panels, piping, and galvanised guttering.
Bulls Eye 1-2-3 is an all in one primer, sealer and stain killer for internal and external substrates, structures and surfaces, including:
- Painting over gloss paint
- High humidity areas – kitchens, bathrooms and laundry facilities
- Walls and ceilings
- Metal doors
- Weathered wood
- Pressure treated lumber
- T1-11 siding
- Painting over black paint and other dark colour, previously decorated surfaces
For walls and ceilings that have previously been decorated in very dark colours, like a photographic dark-room, Bulls Eye 1-2-3 is fantastic at covering and blocking that old décor so that they won’t show through the new paint topcoat. Using this primer will allow you to cover dark surfaces with light and subtle shades of paint, reinvigorating and adding air to office spaces, renovated workplaces and storage facilities – including cold and dark basements, attics, and stairwells.
This is a go-to product for builders and contracted decorating tradesmen to seal porous surfaces on new builds and renovated building. Drywall, builder’s flat, wood, plaster, masonry and brick are no match against Bulls Eye 1-2-3. It is also ideal for high pH surfaces, like concrete, stucco, plaster and fast set joint and textile compounds.
Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 can be applied directly to new or previously treated exterior woods, including cedar, fire, pine, plywood, pressure treated woods and redwood.
