Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 is a universal interior and exterior, water-based, primer-sealer. It offers low odour application, quick drying convenience and excellent adhesion to glossy surfaces. Bulls Eye 1-2-3 primes and seals even the trickiest of surfaces, both interior and exterior. It is a 'bond coat' primer that’s great for hard-to-stick surfaces as it offers excellent adhesion without sanding. It also prevents rust formation when applied over clean ferrous metal such as iron and steel.

Rich in a biocide that protects the dried coating against fungal degradation, it’s ideal for high-humidity areas such as bathrooms and utility rooms. It also contains a stain blocker that is strong enough to permanently and completely seal graffiti, grease spots, tar and asphalt. For deeper stains from oil and water, fire and smoke damage try Zinsser Coverstain.

 Thanks to its rust inhibitive formula, it is ideal for new metal. It resists flash rusting in its "wet" state - and provides rust resistance for the life of the coating. It dries to a smooth, tight, water-resistant film that is perfect for painting iron railings, steel doors, metal panels, duct work, galvanised gutters - any interior or exterior metal surface.

Applying Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3

 For best results, apply to a clean, dry surface using a brush, roller or airless spray.  Zinsser Bulls Eye has a quick 30 minute drying time and 1 hour dry time making it a quick and convenient solution.
