What is it?

The All-Surface, All-Purpose Primer, Sealer & Stain Killer!

Since it was introduced in 1982, Bulls-Eye 1-2-3 has been a highly effective water-based primer-sealer and still is one of the most highly ranked bond coats out there. This all-purpose, all surface primer produces outstanding results on not only interior surfaces, but exterior as well! With a formula containing both acrylic and latex, this unique product sticks to even the glossiest surfaces and prevents the appearance of difficult stains on all painted surfaces.

What Can I Use It For?



Suitable for bare or painted surfaces including wood, drywall, cured plaster, masonry, galvanized metal and PVC. It has excellent adhesion to dense glossy surfaces (even without sanding) making it a great ‘bond coat’ primer for hard-to-stick-to surfaces such as enamel paints and varnishes, laminates and tiles.



Contains a unique resin that seals porous surfaces and provides a smooth and even finish to extend the coverage of topcoats and provide uniform and consistent sheen. It helps bind chalky surfaces and is suitable for use on moderately chalked aluminium or previously painted siding and trim.



Zinsser Bulls-Eye 1-2-3 Primer effectively blocks stains from grease, handprints, asphalt, crayon, graffiti, rust stains, light water stains and cedar or redwood bleed. Note: when priming over bare cedar or redwood, allow 24 hours dry time before painting. Certain applications may require a second coat of primer.
