Does Kilz make paint or just primer? KILZ COMPLETE COAT® PAINT & PRIMER Interior/Exterior Semi-Gloss is a low VOC, low odor, premium acrylic paint with excellent hide. It is highly scrubbable and easy to touch-up, resists staining, fading, and peeling.
What happens if you just paint with primer? Since primer’s function is mainly to bond and cover porous surfaces, it is not made to withstand elements like paint. Because of this, if you leave primer without a top coat (or paint) it will deteriorate and break down, probably in a chalk like form.
What happens if I don’t paint over Kilz primer? If you don’t paint over primer, your walls will end up being damaged. Water is a danger to walls with no paint over the primer. Smoke will also be more damaging to your wall, especially in the rooms near the kitchen. Even a pet’s odor will cling to your walls.
Can I just use primer as paint? Primer is not formulated to stand up to the elements and should be topcoated within several weeks to ensure proper bonding. If left uncovered for an extended period of time, primer will tend to deteriorate and chalk, which could prevent future coats of paint from adhering properly.
