[NSW] Zinsser 10L Undercoat Primer Sealer Stain Blocker $122 (Was $166.50) + Delivery ($0 C&C) @ Bunnings

150

Decent price drop on Zinsser Undercoat 10L. (Possibly NSW only)
Good time to be painting the house!

Useful if you're painting a large area of fresh plasterboard, blocking over stains or bringing a dark colour back to light.

Unsure of stock levels. But in my experience Bunnings rarely drops the price on paint.
Nearest competitors are $160-$170 for 10L.
So knock yourself out!

    I don't think this works, I didn't have stains but after putting this on, I got stains

    •  

      That's odd. Rustoleum and Zinsser make some very highly regarded stuff. Did you put a topcoat on?

      •  

        yep we put Taubmans Endure paint as a top coat

    •  

      Same happened to me but mine already has stains and I cleaned it and put this and top coat and 2 months later stains started appearing worse than before

      might need to use an oil-based undercoat

        Absolutely this.
        Any water based undercoat / sealers will struggle with oil stains / smoke stains / a lot of resin. You have to go with oil based for any decent stains, shellac based if it's really intense stains.
        Hence the branding with zinsser:
        Water based = 123
        Oil = Cover stain
        Shellac = Stain killer

        Used the shellac for knotty pine wood.. hella expensive, but it is literally the only one that will seal that tannin long term.

      Depending on the stain (water stains are bad) you will need multiple applications. Zinesser is by far and away better than the other water based products.

    This stuff is great.
    My bathroom looked like a cow with mould, and being asbestos, i didnt really want to try scrubbing it.

    Paint over with this, and besides the smell of the stuff; its great.

    In store only? showing at $166 for me

    •  

      Hmm. Maybe NSW only. Showing $122 for me. VIC showing $166.50.
      I hate the way Bunnings does state based (or store based) pricing.

      •  

        In vic, showing $166. Maybe NSW only.

        •  

          Can confirm, I'm in NSW and is $122 on the website.

    •  

      $166 for me as well.

      i bought a 10L can of the oil-based coverstain stuff a while back and really disliked it. the metal can lid with little metal tags is horrible and it was way too thick making it hard to leave a smooth finish. maybe this stuff is different.

        Yeay oil based paints are typically sticker and heavier than water based. Plus this looks like it comes in a plastic tub! :)

  •  

    Anything from Rust-Oleum is well designed and worth the price. But I'ma try Spring 4L undercoat (Bunnings home brand?) since it's only $25. Will see how that works on my shed's plasterboard finish.

      Don’t use spring. I was using a decent undercoat but ran out for one wall. After three coats of spring I went and bought the better stuff. The spring has TERRIBLE coverage.

      It’s like milk

    •  

      If you are trying to kill time and boredom during lockdown, use Spring.

      It requires at least 3 coats to get semi acceptable results.
      But it certainly is cheap.

      I have used it a lot because it was cheap. But if you value your time, don't use it

    Would this be good for exterior garage cladding?

    Wattyl have a 30% off promotion for July as well so that may be worth checking out.

    Ignore my last. Was still set to VIC :)
