BIN shellac based primer usage


I'll be using this product for the 1st time in an attempt to cover up some bad odor. Any recommendations on use such as gloves, brushes, eye protection , etc? TIA

BIN shellac based primer usage


For just brushing out a couple of doors it shouldn't be too bad. It has a strong odor of denatured alcohol that dissipates pretty quickly.
Gloves if you want them, a quality synthetic brush ( but you might be tossing it afterwards) . I keep it in a sealed container with some den alcohol between uses so it doesn't get hard.
No need for eye protection unless you start flinging it around!
Ventilation or a fan indirect to give you some air is not a bad idea.

BIN shellac based primer usage


Didi a little searching for BIN info for you. It is very tricky to apply because of the fast dry.
One place recommended applying with a 4" velour weenie roller. Lays down better than a foam or other type. Might be a good way to go.
Here's something blatantly swiped..

Priming With Pigmented Shellac
  • Pigmented Shellac is a very common and useful Interior Primer material... we use it everywhere! However it does not Clean-Up easily, and Alcohol is required for this! So we keep a special Paint Can with a snap-on plastic lid with a notch at the edge to allow keeping a brush in the can, in the material all the time, to avoid continuous clean-up!
  • We also recommend using old slightly worn roller covers with Pigmented Shellac, and throw them away when the job is done, to avoid clean-up!
  • Most importantly, STIR the material thoroughly to bring the Shellac up from the bottom, and apply the material SLOWLY and CAUTIOUSLY because it is as thin as water and splatters and drips easily... use Alcohol for clean-up!
  • The advantage it offers is excellent Stain Killing, and QUICK Drying (so be advised that you cannot re-brush over an area after a few minutes without "upsetting" the fast drying material)!
  • Pigmented Shellac Primer should not be used for Exterior Applications... use an Exterior Wood Oil Base Primer, or if Stains are present, use an Oil Base Stain Sealer, like Bin's Cover Stain...
  • When all else fails, read the product labels!

I like those little Winnie rollers. I used one to paint my entry door.

To original poster. Just make sure you buy some denatured alcohol for cleanup. Hands brushes.

Skip the alcohol for clean up, use ammonia. Works just the same and is a fraction of the price of alcohol.
