Forum Title: PPG Break-Through! Used on Wood Flooring
I used Break-Through on a sanded bare wood floor. I had intended on putting down a primer first (told this to the store mgr in advance) and then applying the Break-Through but on the advice of the PPG rep (through the words of the store mgr), I skipped the primer. I rolled the first coat, brushed the second and rolled a final coat. I was extremely pleased with the outcome but after 2 days the the floor is bleeding through. (The paint color is a shade of white.) I am going to contact the store to see what measures will fix it. I don't want a second mess. How would you fix this problem? I also need to topcoat it with a gloss after it is fixed as my customer did not find the satin shiny enough (and I would agree that it looks quite matte). I plan on using the clear Break-Through hi-gloss.

Yup. It adheres well enough without a primer, in fact it probably adheres better than most readily available primers out there. But sealing tannins and other stains? Not so much.
