Behr ultra premium means it has primer in it. Mostly used for kitchens and bathrooms.
Behr Premium Plus Ultra dose have a built in primer. It's primer capabilities is not on par with priming then painting. If you are looking for something fast and quick, than this will work. If you are looking for longevity, you will need a primer.
Hi - I haven't experienced a tackyness problem with latex paints. Make sure to pay attention to the information on the can concerning temperature/humidity requirements, they are usually pretty broad. Especially pay attention to recoat times. I've had problems where I recoated to soon and the entire coat hadn't cured enough. Krylon (available at WalMart as well as other places) also has primer formulated for their paints which is substantially cheaper than BIN. Incidentally, BIN is alcohol based, pigmented shellac. Cleans up with denatured alcohol (VERY flammable), dried BIN cleans up with ammonia.
Oil bases will yellow over time. Especially noticeable on glossy light colors.
BIN is a great primer for drywall and wood work. The only problem is the adhesion on it is nothing like zinnser cover stain. BIN is mainly for stainblocking and useful as a vaporbarrier. Go with Zinnser Cover Stain, its oil base and has great adhesion.
Yes gloss or semi gloss latex will remain tacky for years, I have had great success using it and top coating with water based water clear polyurethane. Make sure to get water clear poly or it will yellow.
This is true. A water based
poly is what you would want to put over it for added protection. Oil will only not adhere to the latex paint, it will yellow.
For top coat of paint, I will give you recommendations:
Big Box Stores:
Behr PPU Semi-Gloss
Valspar Ultra Premium Semi-Gloss(Floetrol'd)
All different types of paint and price ranges. I wouldn't do anything cheaper than the high end box store paint if you want results that last.
