3285[bolger] Re: Primers for latex Paints?
- Feb 29, 2000There is more than one type of Kilz.
Kilz 2 has been mentioned a number of times when people are saying Kilz
does not adhere well to epoxy. I have no experience with Kilz 2 but my
recolection is that is a water-based primer.
Kilz (the original) is the only stuff I've used. This stuff really
smells bad and if yuo're not careful it can make you dizzy when using
it in closed spaces. I think the reason for this is because the
volatiles flash-off very quickly. This stuff dries very fast (less than
30 minutes). I have used it on many outdoor and indoor project (however
not a boat) and I've never had any problems with it adhereing to
anything nor has any top coats failed to stick to it.
Can the folks who have had trouble with Kilz elaborate on whether it
was plain old Kilz or Kilz 2?
As for other exterior paint successes, I have had great luck with
Finneren-Haley Stormplate 30 latex primer and exterior latex. This has
hel-up wonderfully for me on various outdoor projects. Sadly, since
I've moved to TX I can't find any Finneren-Haley stores.
