Apply to interior and exterior walls, ceilings, doors, trim, fascia, soffits, foundations, railings, and related paintable surfaces. Bulls-Eye 1-2-3 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.

Bulls-Eye 1-2-3 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 Spray
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. Bare wood that has been exposed for more than 4 weeks should be lightly sanded or abraded to remove weathered wood fibers. Remove exterior mold & mildew with Zinsser Jomax Mildew Killer and House Cleaner. Remove interior mold and before painting with a solution of one cup household bleach per gallon of water or a quality mildew cleaner. Rinse well and allow surface to dry completely before priming. Countersink exposed nail heads, spot prime and fill all nail holes and gouges with Zinsser Ready Patch spackling compound. Wire brush rusty areas. Spot prime knots and sap streaks with B-I-N Primer-Sealer before whole surface priming with Bulls-Eye 1-2-3.
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%
