NOTE: While we do not consider this a chemically "green" product, we find it chemically superior and safer than other products in the shellac primer category. This type of product can be needed to deal with troublesome situations, such as:
- sealing in tobacco smoke odors
- sealing in fireplace soot and odors
- blocking darker waterspots and other deeper stains
If you are chemically sensitive, we find it often successful to initially prime with this primer, then cover with two coats of our AFM Safecoat paint (which helps to mitigate offgassing of the substrate, including this primer). If you want to be additionally sure, then after applying the shellac primer, apply one coat of our AFM Safecoat Transitional Primer (for additional mitigation) then apply two coats of AFM Safecoat paint. As always, ventilation and air flow will help with curing the product to minimize offgassing; we recommend a test application in a small area before completing an entire project; and you might want to avoid occupancy of the painted area for a short period of time (1-2 days under common circumstances). Please understand we cannot guarantee this or any product will not cause a personal reaction. Our recommendations are based on our experience and best practices with countless projects and chemically sensitive clients.
