Approximately 400 sq.ft./gal.(9.8 m2/l) depending on
application method and surface porosity.
Surfaces should be clean, dry, sound and free of
any contamination, mildew, rust or unsound coatings that may
interfere with adhesion. Remove loosely adhered or
unsound coatings. Sand any remaining paint film edges
smooth. If unsure of cleanliness, always wash surface with
household ammonia and water solution, appropriate
cleaning solution or solvent (do not use TSP as a cleaner).
Rinse the surface thoroughly and allow to dry before
application of the primer. Spot prime knots and sap
streaks with Zinsser B-I-N Primer/Sealer.
If you scrape, sand or remove old paint, you
may release lead dust. LEAD IS TOXIC. EXPOSURE TO
LEAD DUST CAN CAUSE SERIOUS ILLNESS, SUCH AS
BRAIN DAMAGE, ESPECIALLY IN CHILDREN.
PREGNANT WOMEN SHOULD ALSO AVOID
EXPOSURE. Wear a NIOSH-Approved respirator to
control lead exposure. Clean up carefully with a HEPA
vacuum and a wet mop. Before you start, find out how to
protect yourself and your family by contacting the National

Bulls-EyeZero is not recommended for applications to
floors, decks, roof surfaces or any surface subject to
immersion or prolonged contact with water.
Apply only when air, material, and surface temperatures
are between 50-85ºF (10-29ºC) and the relative humidity
is below 85%. Thoroughly mix 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 finishes.For best results,
prime entire surface before painting. Apply with a
synthetic (nylon, polyester or blend) bristle
brush, roller, or airless sprayer. Follow manufacturer's
instructions when using spray equipment.
For airless spraying use a .017" tip at 2000 to 2500 psi. Wear NIOSH
approved respirator and provide adequate ventilation.
Bulls-Eye Zero is formulated to be used without thinning.
If thinning is necessary, add no more than 10 fluid ounces
of clean water per gallon and mix thoroughly. Note that
excessive thinning will hinder stain blocking properties.
Bulls-Eye Water-Base may be tinted with up to 2 ounces
of universal colorant per gallon.Tinting the primer toward
the color of the topcoat helps hide in one coat. For mid or
deep tone colors use Bulls-Eye 1-2-3 Deep Tint.
Shake or stir well before using.
Dries to the touch in 30 minutes, can be recoated in
1 hour. Lower temperatures, higher humidity, and the
addition of tint will prolong dry and cure time.
Allow more time at cooler temperatures.
Clean up spills and paint drips with detergent and
warm water. Wipe up splatters before they dry.
If spills or drips have dried, use denatured alcohol or ammoniated
detergent to soften and remove primer. Wash application
tools in detergent and warm water immediately use.
Follow equipment manufacturer’s directions to clean spray
equipment. Dispose of unused or unwanted product in
accordance with local laws regulating water-based
