BULLS EYE 1-2-3 is a fast-drying white-pigmented acrylic latex (water-thinnable) undercoat. It is formulated for use on all types of exterior and interior surfaces - previously painted or new work. Any oil or latex finish paint can be applied over it. Bulls Eye 1-2-3 was introduced in 1982, the industry's first effective water based stain killer and bond coat.
On exteriors, BULLS EYE 1-2-3 outperforms oil-based primers, the traditional choice of such applications. Its acrylic polymer formulation has exceptional adhesion, penetrating porous surfaces and forming a coating that both "breathes" and remains permanently flexible. Oil primers, in contrast, form impermeable films that become brittle with age.
BULLS EYE 1-2-3's breathable film lets interior house moisture escape, minimizing exterior paint blistering and peeling. Flaking and cracking on soft, dimensionally unstable wood is less likely too, because BULLS EYE 1-2-3 flexes with the wood as it expands and contracts with temperature changes.
Bulls Eye 1-2-3 also makes painting easier because it adheres to chalky weathered siding without washing and to glossy trim without sanding. It's ideal for repainting vinyl or aluminum siding, brick, masonry, new wood or old weathered paints.
On interiors, too, BULLS EYE 1-2-3's absence of "paint smell" and soap-and-water clean-up are what homeowners want. It seals porous surfaces and provides for a full and uniform finish. And its zero flame spread and low smoke generation make it especially valuable in hospitals, nursing homes and other institutional and commercial buildings.
Bulls Eye 1-2-3 bonds to tough surfaces like formica, enamel painted metals, varnished wood, paneling and to old high gloss paints. Bulls Eye 1-2-3 makes interior painting an easy job.
