Specification

Eastwood Epoxy Primer should be applied in medium wet coats, with a 30-minute flash period between each (at 70 °F). Typically, one to two coats is enough to achieve the desired 1 mil. dry film thickness, though more material may be applied as needed. Additional build requires longer flash periods between coats. Epoxy primer may be topcoated after approximately 30 minutes (wait 45-60 minutes after applying more than two coats), or up to about five days. After five days, primer MUST be scuff sanded prior to topcoat application. May be sanded (wet) the day after application. Wait two to three days before sanding dry.

Safety

Always wear eye, respirator and skin protection use in a well ventilated are consult MSDS for specific warnings precautions.

Spraying Epoxy Primer on a Car - Direct To Metal Primer

In this segment from the Web TV Series Hands-on Cars, Kevin sprays Eastwood Epoxy Primer on his Camaro door. It's easy to use with the 1:1 mix ratio, which means that 1 gallon of primer and 1 gallon of catalyst makes 2 gallons sprayable.

  • Sprays easily, excellent protection
    I've now sprayed 2.5 gallons of this primer on a 1966 Mustang top to bottom, front to back. It was trivially easy for a newbie painter like me to get excellent results after watching a few videos by Kevin Tetz. This primer goes on bare metal, and once it completely cures, it is tough as nails. It also self levels, and I had very little trouble with drips once I got my gun set correctly. I'm in Tennessee where we have high humidity, so I had a desiccant in the air line to keep the moisture out. I'm sure some water got in the line, but this primer is very forgiving. It creates a beautiful surface for the rest of the layers of paint while also protecting the metal. Highly recommended.
  • Even newbies can do a good job
    I sprayed paint for the first time 4 days ago, and I have now primed and entire 1966 Mustang after wet blasting it 7 days ago. I had too much pressure going to the gun at first, but this primer is forgiving. One thing I have noticed is that it seems to dry smoother to the touch for surfaces which were sprayed horizontally. Even spraying fenders and the hood vertically didn't cause more than a couple of drips, though, and those were from my not paying attention to how close I was. With hvlp guns, keep the pressure around 24-30 psi, and spray about 12 inches, not 18 inches, away. This is a very easy primer to use for a first timer.
  • Great Product
    I have used both the gray and black. It has really stood up to the UV that I see here with over 300 days of sun in the year in the southwest. Flows really well; lays down and sands very well. Excellent product with a great shelf life - would recommend this to everyone. Follow the instructions for mixing and temp; set your gun up correctly and it will work as intended.
  • Great Product!
    This epoxy primer sprays and flows out very well. The most impressive attribute is it's sandability after about 4-5 days - it can easily be sanded dry without clogging up the paper. Excellent adhesion characteristics and good color hold out. Can't beat the cost to value either!
