Zinsser Bulls-Eye 1-2-3 Deep Tint is a white pigmented, styrenated acrylic water- base deep-tint capable primersealer stain blocker and bond coat designed for priming all surfaces. Apply to interior and exterior walls, ceilings, doors, trim, fascia, soffits, foundations, railings, and related paintable surfaces. Bulls-Eye 1-2-3 Deep Tint bonds to wood, plaster, concrete, gloss enamels, hardboard, glass and tile. It provides a rust inhibitive coating on iron railings, steel frames, piping, etc. It resists the growth of mold and mildew in damp, humid environments. It resists high pH surfaces (up to 12.5) and seals most porous surfaces. Bulls-Eye 1-2-3 Deep Tint traps most stains in the primer film including graffiti, grease, rust, cedar and redwood tannin, creosote, and asphalt stains.

How to Apply Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Deep Tint Water Base Primer

Surface Preparation

Surfaces should be clean, dry, sound and free of dust, dirt, excessive chalky material, grime, grease, oil, wax, mildew, wallpaper, adhesive or any contamination that may interfere with adhesion. If unsure of cleanliness, always wash surface with an appropriate ammoniated cleaning solution or solvent (do not use TSP as a cleaner). Remove any peeling and/or unsound coatings. Sand any remaining paint film edges smooth with the surface. Lightly sand exposed exterior wood with 80 to 100 grit sandpaper to remove loose or weathered wood fibers and mill glaze. When priming over stained areas, first attempt to remove as much of the stain as possible by washing, sanding, scraping, etc.


Apply only when air, material, and surface temperatures are between 50-90ºF (10-32ºC) and the surface temperature is at least 5ºF (3ºC) above the dew point. The relative humidity should not be greater than 85%. Mix thoroughly to ensure any settled pigment is re-dispersed before using. In most cases only one coat is necessary to prime most surfaces. If excessive absorption occurs over very porous substrates a second coat may be necessary. Spot priming is recommended only under high-hiding topcoat paints. For best results, prime entire surface before painting. Apply with a natural or synthetic bristle brush, roller, pad or sprayer. Follow manufacturer's instructions when using spray equipment. For airless spraying, use a .017" tip at 2000 to 2500 P.S.I.
