Default EXTREME COVER Interior Stain Blocking Egshel?

Anyone ever used this stuff with good results? Was wondering how well it actually preforms at blocking stains and dealing with cigarette smell.

No offense to you but...ANOTHER ONE? I shot my ice tea out my nose when i saw what you were asking about. I haven't read the spec sheet but i bet it goes something like this;
spot prime stains with the product
put one full coat on
wait minimum of 4 hours and apply a second full coat.
if it bleeds through, spot prime those areas, allow 4 hours to cure, and apply another full coat. (we're up to 5 coats on those stains now, you follow me?)

If there is continued bleed through, apply an alkyd primer to the stained areas and re-apply two coats of topcoat.

There, that should kill those pesky stains!

Or just use an alkyd stain killer and eliminate oh...at least 6 additional coats? Idk? What works best for you?

They're ALL like this.

And what if it bleeds through several months after you paint? SW going to pay you for that re-paint? Nope. Because YOU didn't follow the label directions!

This isn't a knock on you, just misleading and false marketing claims that just about every paint company has been throwing around since day one.

Forget it. It covers terribly. much less blocking stains. I took it back to SW. They gave me cashmere to finish the job.

Not too far off actually. 4 Hours then 'test' for bleeding. vs 1 hours recoat BIN or fast dry alkyd....

Special recommendations - After priming stained areas, allow to dry 4 hours, test a small area for bleeding by applying a second coat before painting the entire project. If the stain bleeds through, apply a coat of Multi-Purpose Latex Primer/Sealer and test a small area for bleeding before painting the entire surface.

They have basically been the third box store for years. Now that they own Valspar it will only get worse.

Unfortunately they just haven't made a latex that can truely block stains. IMO. Maybe after 3 or 4 coats, but not really. Best bet is still A shellac or Alkyd product..

I'm comfortable using SW paints for topcoating, but I am not happy with their primers. When dealing with stains, Bin or Coverstain in a heartbeat before trying any of their water based primers. When not dealing with stains, I'd use 1-2-3 before one of theirs anyway, it still works better than their stuff in my opinion.

Dude...ditto.

I feel like you're my long-lost brother.

One thing to add tho, SW primers are priced like liquid gold.

There has to be a nonporous coat to seal stains. Waterborne paints and primers rely on the thickness of the coat to provide that nonporous barrier. That can mean multiple coats depending on the stain. Rather than using your time to find out how many coats that is on any particular stain, why not just use a nonporous single coat of primer like bin to do the job. We're all here to make money, and putting more coats on to use a water based product isn't going to do it.
