What's the difference between primers that are labled for "interior",
"exterior", and "interior/exterior" use? What would be the problem with
using an exterior primer indoors or vice versa? Is the
interior/exterior variety any less weather-resistent than strict
why ask why? i mean you expect answers besides the obvious ones? you doing
a research paper or painting your house?
there's a 1-800 number on the paint cans. most manufacturers have web
sites. if you feel the need, im sure someone at the paint company would
explain in excruciating detail exactly how the primer works for each
situation and which is best.
I guess I', obtuse, but it's not at all obvious to me. There's nothing
on the can or anywere else in print that I can find that says what the
difference is, beyond the label. I asked a guy at the paint store and
he said something about how an exterior primer was "more flexible" but
couldn't elaborate beyond that.
I'm painting the my house, of course, - the interior for now - and I
have quite a bit of exterior primer that will go bad before I have a
chance to use it up. I'd like to use it inside rather than buying more
interior primer unless theres a reason not to. I'd hate for my for my
new paint to fall off, or my walls to melt into puddles, or to open a
portal to the 12th dimension of hell.
Well, I do feel the need. So, since you don't know or prefer not to
share your special knowledge, I guess that's an alternative.
