Four coats (2 Kilz Original AND 2 Zinsser BIN)


I agree on pre-treating before priming. I have used and sold Bio-Zapp Odor Eliminator. It works fantastic!:

Mr Paint- dead link- and it's hard to get it direct from Bio-Zapp. But Just used some today ( I put it in Gardz to kill it's heavy odor) - sold by this company relabeled as Kabosh. Look around to get the right kind for your use. I do not recommend the "Paint Sentsations" line- they are just an odor masker, and kind of bad themselves...

First, put a fan on your floor at least overnight and let's make sure it's urine you're smelling and not residual fumes from the denatured alcohol. Denatured alcohol, the solvent in which the shellac is dissolved, is simply ethanol mixed with a little methanol and a strong odorant to discourage winos and frat boys from drinking it. You might also want to find an extra nose or two in the morning to help identify what you're actually smelling.

If, in fact, it still smells of urine tomorrow, my guess is that the OSB (oriented strand board) was still wet when you applied the shellac. Urine gives off ammonia as the urea decomposes, and ammonia dissolves shellac. Given the number of coats you've used, though, I doubt this is the case.

SealCoat is not designed for this, it's a sanding sealer for woodwork finishing. BIN is the right product. You've only added a little clear shellac over the pigmented.

Be patient, try the fan, and let's take it from there.
I couldn't have answered it better myself!!! Andre, Ratherbefishin is right.

Okay, left fan on floor for two days solid. Kept away from it to refreshen nose. Definitely smells better today, but odor not completely gone. Does this mean it was the denatured alcohol? If so, is it safe to go ahead and lay down the new flooring? Or should I put another layer of BIN down? Someone suggested it sometimes takes 6 BIN layers to block such smells, but most on this site seem to think one or two should do it. Suggested next step?

If it takes 6 coats of BIN to block odors I will be out of business!
