Rust-Oleum Corp. has introduced Zinsser Mold Killing Primer, a fungicidal coating for residential, commercial and industrial applications.

The water-based primer can be used on both non-porous interior and exterior surfaces to kill mold, mildew and odor-causing bacteria.

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 water-based protective coating can be painted directly over mold and mildew on interior and exterior surfaces. Photos show before (left) and after.

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

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 gallons. One gallon will cover 400-450 square feet.
