On interior surfaces, Cover Stain dries quickly and has great hiding power providing outstanding stain killing and enamel undercoating performance. Stains of all kinds are permanently sealed so topcoats are blemish free.

On exterior surfaces, Zinsser Cover Stain has a unique formulation that delivers full penetration and flexibility on all surfaces, especially dimensionally unstable wood paneling and trim, where few oil-based primers can succeed. Cover Stain resists cracking and peeling and is compatible with all decorative top coats.
Zinsser Cover Stain offers outstanding adhesion. It sticks to all surfaces – even hard-to-paint surfaces like glossy enamel paint and varnishes, Formica, ceramic tile, PVC, weathered wood – even glass – without sanding or deglossing. It’s a great base coat for metal cabinets and bookcases, panelling, tile and other surfaces when an oil-base primer is desired.
great for priming new and previously painted interior surfaces such as panelling, wood trim, old wallcovering, glossy paints, clear finishes, Formica‚ and more. Ready to recoat in just 2 hours, it seals porous surfaces like plaster, bare wood, masonry and previously coated drywall to give topcoats better coverage.
