What primer to use between carpet glue and paint?

I have a covered concrete patio which had outdoor carpet for about 10 years. I've removed the carpet and used a floor scrapper to remove the peaks of the glue. The glue is well attached and I would like to paint it, with the understanding that I will see the irregularities through the paint. I plan to use Behr Porch and Patio paint (which is latex), and am considering applying Kilz Original Primer (which is oil based), in the hopes that the primer will reduce the visibility of the glue texture through the paint. Will the primer help? Thanks!

First off, the paint, even the primer, is not going to work will with adhesive residue, it's not a stable substrate and you will be creating a big mess!

Plus I cant even imagine just painting over glue, it's going to look horrible!

While it's ok to paint over minute particles of glue you don't want to paint over a bunch of it. Scrape off what you can and use a solvent to dissolve the rest then pressure wash.

Please go to a real paint store, not a box store and ask them what to use.
That's all they do and will know what will work.

You need to rent a concrete sander and get that floor sanded down nice and clean.

I went ahead and did this a few months ago. I used a scrapper to remove the highest points, primed and painted. It took about 10 days for it to stop feeling sticky, but it seemed fine after that. It is slipper when condensation forms, but that hasn't been very often. Only time will tell if it lasts. You can definitely see the glue patterns, but it looks OK to us.
