Not sure but I think I may have found my new favorite oil base primer. BIN is normally my "go to" for priming pine but I have been stripping and refinishing some lawn furniture that happens to be pine and BIN isn't rated for exterior. I thought I'd give this stuff a shot and so far have been pretty happy with the results, cleanup is much easier than with BIN also. It also says it can be used over latex and under most anything so sounds ideal for for window trim where the glazing needs an oil based cover but the window has already been painted at least once with latex. Just what is this stuff anyway? Is it what's referred to as Alkyd? I never have been to clear on just what that is. Is there a downside to it? Top coat time is only an hour which is faster than most latex primers I've used.
