A Review of Zinsser Paint Primers by Rustoleum
A Touch of Color Painting has always emphasized the importance of using quality painting products.
As an expert painting contractor, we share the importance of optimal applications too! What is the significance of quality primers?
To achieve outstanding paint coatings, high-quality interior and exterior primers are also necessary. Here we are going to share some of the best primers on the market.
The Functionality & Purpose of Primers
Primers are just as crucial as the paints used for the final coat. The primary functions of primer are essentially adhesion, coverage, and stain blocking or sealing.
Several primers serve only a few or are limited to one single purpose. In most cases, oil-based primers are the most diverse. Oil primers provide excellent adhesion, help with coverage, and provide some stain blocking qualities.
The Performance of Zinsser Primers
We have found Zinsser by Rustoleum to be a high-quality primer manufacturer. Their water-based latex primer contains over 53% solids. This particular product is great for interior and exterior painting preparations. It is an exceptional adhesion primer for raw wood applications! We also find a few stain-blocking characteristics in the water-based version.
The shellac-based primer provides superior stain-blocking characteristics by comparison. Shellac-based products performed even better than other competing oil-based paints. In fact, we found it to be the only primer that completely blocks water stains.
The only stains that are almost impossible to block are sap stains from wood knots.
All of our exterior painting services provide properly primed and sealed surfaces using Zinsser product when most applicable.
