Rust-Oleum Corp. says its new fungicidal primer can kill mildew, mold and odor-causing bacteria on industrial and other applications.

Zinsser Mold Killing Primer is a water-based coating that can be used on both non-porous interior and exterior surfaces.

It can be applied directly over problem areas without extensive surface preparation and contains an Environmental Protection Agency-registered antimicrobial agent to prevent the growth of mold and mildew on paint film, according to the Vernon Hills, IL-based specialty paints and coatings manufacturer.

The protective primer can be applied directly over mold and mildew on interior and exterior surfaces.

Recommended applications include factories, office buildings, basements, window frames and bathrooms.

Additional Features

“Mold and mildew are serious problems when they occur, often causing unsightly stains and a lingering odor,” said Fiona Seal, a brand manager for Rust-Oleum. “Unfortunately, they are also one of the most difficult fungi to remove.”

Zinsser Mold Killing Primer will dry to a bright white in as little as 30 minutes, and can be topcoated after one hour, according to Rust-Oleum.

The company says that full adhesion and hardness will develop within seven days of application.

The product is available in quarts, gallons and five-gallon containers. One gallon will cover 400-450 square feet.

Impressive. I don’t recall any other major manufacturer offering a latex to paint directly over active mold, unless you go back to the days of mercury additives...
