Drywall and Cast Iron Primer Advice


I only get to paint this once with the furniture all clear so here goes...

What is the best drywall primer out there - PPG 62 , Ben Moore Super Spec or SW ? New sheetrock hung in our basement that got flooded..


As well, I'm thing Red Can 123 Primer, but advise me further. I have this 3" cast iron pipe that is exposed. It's a new pipe so the *exterior* is fairly black but as you know, with cast iron....there are some rust pittings that eventually show up...per se. Oil preferred or blue can is okay to prime this pipe. The paint will be whatever paint we use in that room....

Drywall and Cast Iron Primer Advice


If it were me I would use Chem Bond on the pipe, but it is stinky stuff. SW sells it. At the very lest I would use a low oder oil primer or some Rustolium. Latex primers will just rust through in no time. The three primers you listed are all good and won't let you down.

Sure looks like industrial stuff....
Is there a long term *performance* advantage with this versus a 123 /rustoleum oil primer...
I don't care about odors.

The pipe is 3" x 8 feet high. With another 90 degree leg about 3 feet long.
Just want to prep, paint and have it last....ya know

I was avoiding SW but SW it is....
It's not really popular out here....and the nearest one is a trek.
But if it's that good...it's worth the trip.

Prep is key to anything in life

SW Kem Bond High Solids Oil is a great product, used in the industrial fiels and commercial a lot. Personally I feel Kem Bond is overkill for your project and I would use SW DTM primer/finish system. We've used this system a lot on interior cast iron, literally 1000's linear feet with great success. Not to mention that with the Kem Bond, especially indoors you will need a good resperator and ventilation. On the drywall, as long as its not water damaged or stained I would use SW Preprite primer.

Kem-Bond is about $75 a gallon, and don't think you'd be able to get qaurts. Agree with Housepainting. Two coats of Rustoleum will do the job.

Ugg, I didn't realize it was that expensive. The guy I work for always buys it I would go with Rustolium. A quart should do the trick for you.

I used it for a customer because it was recommended to me by SW staff. The customer purchased the paints because his company has a contract with SW. He told me that's what he was told it cost. He got a bit of a discount only because that product is not on his company's list of products it purchases. Kem-bond is more an industrial product, and it's accordingly nasty. I'm sure your guy doesn't pay 75, that's retail.
