Pros & Cons

The AI used to provide these results are constantly improving. These results might change.

Pros

Zinsser oil primer sealer goes on smoothly with a brush and leaves no brush marks. The second coat levels some of the irregularities of the first coat. The primer is vital to getting a smooth and easy to apply finish coat.

Zinsser oil primer works greats on materials that don't like water. Used it to cover an 80's oak railing in my basement. Excellent coverage on treated plywood after just one coat. Perfect thickness and coverage.



Cons

Only reason for 1* was leaked during shipment and was not usable. The instructions suggest to top coat in one hour, but my project was still tacky 4 - 5 hours after priming. Wire two masks and still was irritating to my lungs.

    The source of the stain has been resolved but it was bleeding through any regular wall paints


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    We had water stained floorboards and we had painted them three or four times and the stains still showed through

    Then we tried sanding and that didn’t take away the stain either


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    I called the paint store and they said to get cover stain


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    The smell of this make me so nauseous


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Save yourself time and throw away the paint brush so you dont have to go through the messy ritual of cleaning up after using an oil based paint


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Animal urine smell was bad but after 3 coats and a month or so to bleed slowly away from other areas


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Only time will tell if it actually worked
