Innovation, quality and problem solving, since 1849
Zinsser was founded on these principles in 1849 and has remained true to its original charter for more than 150 years.
Zinsser was founded by William Zinsser (pictured below) in 1849. In its long history, Zinsser has established itself as a brand associated with unique, problem-solving products that address the needs of professional contractors and DIYers.
Problem solving products
Zinsser has earned a reputation as a company that listens to contractors and develops new products – or adds features to existing products – to meet their changing needs.
That’s why Zinsser has expanded its primer technology to include new high-performance, low VOC primer-sealers; leads the industry in the development of products that improve wallpaper hanging and removal; and is constantly researching and developing new products for the long-term prevention of mould and mildew.
At Zinsser we deliver world class products that meet “real world” challenges, providing tried and tested solutions to painting problems. Our patented B-I-N primer (pictured below), for example, has never been matched or bettered!
We remain true to the traditions of innovation and quality established by our founder, William Zinsser: to develop problem-solving products that people can depend on. By sticking to these principles we have made Zinsser the primer of choice for the professional painter.
