MIXING RATIO

After shaking/stirring primer, thoroughly mix one part primer with one part catalyst. No induction time is required with this epoxy system.


SPRAY GUN SETUP

HVLP Gun: Fluid Tip 1.4-1.8 mm Inlet Spray Pressure 25-30 psi
Conventional Gravity: Fluid Tip 1.4-1.6 mm Inlet Spray Pressure 45-55 psi
Conventional Siphon: Fluid Tip: 1.6-1.8 mm Inlet Spray Pressure 45-55 psi


APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Epoxy primer I am a novice at best, tried 1.8 mm but it was too much. After sanding orange peel out 3 times. I tried 1.4mm and it was much better. Expected black. In reality it is dark dark brown. Time will tell on durability.

Can this primer be sanded?

Asked by: Dirtybird79
This is not a high-build primer and is not normally meant to be sanded. Only for adhesion or with the use of guide coat to find high and low spots on your metal.

I sprayed Eastwood epoxy primer as a sealer after block sanding Eastwood primer surfacer about a week ago. The epoxy primer still seems soft like it isn’t fully cured yet. My question is will the primer fully cure or is this going to be an issue. 

Asked by: Birdbrain
I had the same problem, and it never did cure out, stayed soft even 10 days after, at 70+ degrees,very disappointing I had to remove it with rags and thinner

How do you use it as a sealer to does it get reduced more and does it get sanded or spray directly over after it dries 

Asked by: Billclyde
You will mix 1:1 like normal and then add the 20% urethane reducer. Once sprayed you have 5 days to spray directly over the finish without scuffing.

I sprayed the epoxy primer toward the end of summer and then the temp. change. because I donot have a garage to paint in I could not finish with top coat and clear. It is now 8 months later can I sand with 400 and then shoot the top coat and clear.

Asked by: Dick
Yes 400 to 600 grit would be sufficient to form a good bond. Do not forget to wiper it down with Eastwood's Pre Paint Prep (10041) before top coating.
