simple question for zinsser bin users

10 posts in this topic

sorry to ask question again ,even if everybody is talking about zinsser bin i have never seen anyone talking about bin advanced,that's why i think i made a mistake.i just got  this one which is bin advanced shellac https://www.rustoleum.com/product-catalog/consumer-brands/zinsser/primer-sealers/b-i-n-advanced-synthetic-shellac-primer-white

is that the one everybody's talking about to use with acrylic and thinned epoxy ? at that price i hope it's the good one.

would you use a paint brush or a foam brush (sponge on  a stick)?

cheers

Ddl, this seems to be a water based alternative to normal spirit based bin, unlike normal bin it is also flexible. Seems to have decent reviews when tested by furniture makers,decorators etc. I suspect it will be o.k but have not used it, not sure about adhesion over epoxy or varnish compared to standard bin which I find sticks very well, but according to reviews it should be o.k . I don't brush primer personally, I spray it. Another option is dipping and hanging or putting on lure turner. ....

Hi ddl, mostly speed, But spraying gives a nice even coat without brush marks. If time not an issue then you can brush and sand. The bin advanced is better if you wet sand seemingly. ..

Ddl, nozzle on mine is 1.4 mm, I do thin it with de-natured alcohol.  Unfortunately I dont measure ratio , just judge viscosity, probably 5 part primer to 1 alcohol.  Its still fairly thick ,slightly thinner than single cream ! Basically as thick as you can shoot an even coat with. You don't need an expensive gun either ddl, mine was as cheap as, and not a single problem....glider

Ddl, I'm usually doing several big lures at a time , I wouldn't put bin near my airbrush !  I use an auto type spray gun .
