COVER STAIN®

ZINSSER COVER STAIN®

Product Overview

On interior surfaces, Cover Stain® dries quickly and has great hiding power providing outstanding stain killing and enamel undercoating performance. Stains of all kinds are permanently sealed so topcoats are blemish-free.

Cover Stain® is especially effective on nicotine and water stains. New wood trim can be primed, sanded, and top-coated the same day, saving time and money.

On exterior surfaces, Cover Stain® has a unique formulation that delivers full penetration and flexibility on all surfaces, especially dimensionally unstable wood paneling and trims, where few oil-based primers can succeed. Cover Stain® resists cracking and peeling and is compatible with all decorative topcoats.

Ultimate performance, mould resistant paint

ALLCOAT ® EXTERIOR SATIN

Zinsser AllCoat ® Exterior is an ultimate performance, mould resistant paint that offers supreme protection to all exterior surfaces: wood, metal, masonry, plastic, concrete and cladding. It forms a vapour-permeable, low maintenance, water-shedding coating that is recoatable in 1 hour.

Product Overview

Available in white, black and a selection of bases that can be tinted to any colour, the paint is self priming and can be applied to previously painted surfaces without sanding, even glossy paints or those coated with bitumen, tar varnish or creosote. For most jobs, there is no need to purchase a separate primer.

Zinsser AllCoat ® Exterior gives excellent resistance against cracking, blistering and flaking. The tough finish is resistant to rain and severe weather and offers excellent colour retention, in addition the paint contains a biocide to protect the dried coating against fungal degradation*. After removing any existing mould and mildew, two coats of AllCoat ® Exterior will ensure that any exterior looks bright and beautiful for years.

The first coat primes and seals the surface, providing a base for the topcoat. The topcoat completes the sealing process while providing additional moisture resistance and protection. This paint is ideally suited to exterior buildings with timber and metal cladding.

* Once dried the paint film is classed as a treated article and contains the surface biocide 2-octyl-2H-isothiazol-3-one 0.06%, Diuron 0.15% & Zinc Pyrithione 0.06% by weight.
