Product Description

Zinsser Grade 1 is a self-priming finish for interior walls and ceilings of traditional and historic buildings; effectively covering unsightly stains.

Zinsser Grade 1 is a high performance, self-priming finish for the interior decoration of walls and ceilings in traditional and historic buildings, including churches, castles and period properties, developed with a high solids formula that works to effectively block unsightly stains caused by nicotine, graffiti, water, fire and smoke.

Best Uses

Zinsser Grade 1 is formulated for interior applications where the performance of a solvent-base paint is desired but high odour levels are objectionable or not permitted. Any slight odour that is detected during application is milder than ordinary emulsion paint and will diminish quickly after application. Zinsser Grade 1 is water permeable and allows the substrate to breathe, so moisture can evaporate.


Zinsser Grade 1 can be applied using brush, roller or airless spray and offers quick drying characteristics for a coating that is dry to touch after just 30 minutes. Grade 1 is manufactured in white but can be tinted to a wide range of colours which are all available on request.

This product can be applied to a number of different substrates including, concrete, lime based plaster, plaster, stucco and previously glossed surfaces, offering excellent adhesion and covering power.
