Dry time before rain for Zinsser Cover Stain?

Hi all,

I'm priming previously-painted (and currently scraped, sanded, and prepped) wood shingle siding with Zinsser oil-based Cover Stain to prevent the very evident tannin bleed-through. I've gotten half of the house done, but now we're in for a week of spotty rain.

While it states that it dries in an hour (and assuming the surface doesn't have too much moisture from previous precipitation), is it possible to paint, say, six hours before rain? Or does it need to cure for a longer period of time? The TDS wasn't particularly helpful about this.

Thanks!

Its is an oil based primer, water should not have an effect on it. You need mineral spirits to clean it up.

Welcome to the forums!

As Z stated, rain won't have much affect on the primer. The wood needs to be dry before it's applied but as long as the primer has enough time to get tacky, the rain won't hurt it. The rain will slow down the drying time.
