Just had a room to paint that had been covered in blu tack. Decided to use zinsser bin followed by 2 emulsion. The patches of bin showed through after 2 coats. I called zinsser and they said they don’t recommend bin for patch stain blocking and carry on putting more coats of emulsion on! They said they didn’t have a product that would do the job either.

Has anyone got an alternative as I don’t want to use zinsser for anything anymore.

Thanks

BIN is the perfect answer to your problem... if applied according to the MI's. Zinsser clearly state that it is not suitable for spot priming (interior)

You should have applied a coat to the whole wall/s affected, before emulsioning, then you would have no flashing/grinning after.

I've always found Zinsser products to be excellent.

The problem you get is the absorbency rate is different, so you see a huge difference between the sealed, and not sealed area.
The quickest fix maybe to seal the whole wall, as it could not be guaranteed to cover with emulsion in one, or two further coats.
