primer adhesion problem


The first thing that comes to mind is that if you primed last night and put tape on this morning, you didn't give the primer long enough to dry before putting your blue tape on. What blue tape did you use? The 3M 2080 delicate surface tape should be the only thing you use on fresh primer, but even then you should wait 24 - 48 hours and that depends on the drying conditions - temp, humidity, etc..

Also, not sure if it's the way the picture came out or the computer monitor but there seems to be some type of pattern under the primer?? Did you just prime new sheetrock or did you go over something else? What primer did you use?? I'm assuming your going to do some type of faux finish and that's why your running your blue tape. If that's the case and you are in fact just going over new sheetrock than make sure you're using a good primer, make sure it dries for a day or two, and then use the 3M delicate surface blue tape (the orange label).

good luck!

What type of primer did you use? A quality new construction primer would have worked best. Definitely allow to dry for 48 hours.

primer adhesion problem


The wallpaper pattern is on his hand too so let's get off that one.

The Blue Tape is probably some of the issue.
You should be using a delicate surface tape as mentioned.

What did you prime it with?
Is there any moisture behind this wall that you just repaired?

primer adhesion problem


hey thanks everyone for the responces, im thinkin time was some of the issue also. Ok with this wall, its the width of two sheets of drywall, one of which i had to replace, no wall paper the wall was previously lakers purple and gold, , i used Kilz latex2 as the primer.(Tcleve4911) you asked about moisture, the sheet of drywall i had to replace was due to my ac went bad and fill attic with water above this room,ceilings, and a major section of the peice of drywall i replaced was from water damage ,so i think your hitting on something there. I also had both blue tapes on hand, the delicate surface and the multisurface, for some reason i mixed and matched,dont know why. I hope i cover all the questions, and anything else you guys can tell me i would appreciate, as i dont want to do this again in the near future and want to do a good job

Do a sample test spot today. If drying time was the issue that should be resolved by now. That way you can eliminate one possibility.
