Rated 5 out of 5 by from Old story Twenty years ago, I was hired to help open a new branch of Kinko's. We built out and fixtured the new store from the ground-up in a newly built shopping center. It wasn't until the rainy season started that we learned the hard way that the overall build quality of the store was fairly poor. Bottom line? The roof leaked. Badly. Across the parking lot was a Home Depot, already up and running for business. We hoofed it over before the business day started and customers began arriving. We purchased cans of Killz low-odor spray primer, and covered up the dirty leak marks on our drop-tile ceilings. Ended up doing this for several months, and no customer was ever the wiser!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I have used it on a few projects, homes RV and I use it with confidence knowing it will cover and seal anything I put it on. When I paint over it, the paint goes on smooth and I use les paint. I never have to worry about color change because this product works so well. I also like using the low odor because I can't breathe in fumes from paints.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Covered a stain fast! I found a stain on a wall in my closet right before my house was scheduled to be shown for the first time for sale. I sprayed only one time and the stain was gone! Perfect in time for my home showing and no one knew the difference. I would show you a picture but the stain is gone, it would be all white!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really....NO ODOR!! Bought this to touch up some areas of my drywall that had already been primed (months ago lol) but had some scuff Mark's on it from my kids. I didnt want to spend all the time of painting with brushes etc just for a couple of spots. Iv'e used the canned primers in the past and was happy with their results. I was skeptical with an aerosol version but thought I'd give it a try and let me tell you, this product is AMAZING! It covered the black scuff Mark's on white primer walls with absolutely no trace of anything black left!! I only needed 2 light coats and viola! Perfectly primed walls ready for paint. Thank you KILZ! What an innovative product!

Surface Preparation

  • The surface must be clean, free of dust, grease, wax, peeling paint, mold, mildew, wallpaper paste. If washing is necessary, use a non-soapy detergent or a TSP substitute. Rinse well and allow to dry.
  • Peeling or Checked Paint: Scrape off loose paint and sand to a smooth surface. Sanding or removal of paint containing lead is hazardous.*
  • Glossy Surfaces: For maximum adhesion, scuff sand the surface thoroughly before priming.*


  • Eye protection is recommended.
  • For best results, use at room temperature. Cover adjacent areas to protect from overspray.
  • Shake can vigorously for 1 minute after mixing ball begins to rattle and often during use. Hold can upright, moving from side-to-side while spraying lightly and evenly about 12" from area being painted. 2-3 thin coats produce best results.
  • Topcoat with latex or oil-based paint after 60 minutes. NOTE: On some surfaces, spot priming may cause a non-uniform appearance in the final coat. To avoid this, prime the entire surface.

Dry Time at 77°F (25°C), 50% RH

  • Topcoat with latex or oil-based paint after 60 minutes.
  • Longer dry time may be required in cooler temperatures and in higher humidity.

Clean up & Disposal

  • Clear spray valve immediately after use by turning can upside down and spraying until only clear gas is released. If spray nozzle becomes clogged, remove and clean.
  • Do not stick pins or wire into can opening.
  • Replace nozzle with valve opening pointed away from you. Clean fresh overspray with mineral spirits or acetone. Remove dried paint with paint remover, but test small area first to ensure paint remover does not damage substrate.
  • Please consider donating any unused product. For recycling or disposal information contact your local household refuse collection service.
