Product Overview:

Description

Eastwood Gray DTM (Direct To Metal) Epoxy Primer 1:1 primes and seals with excellent adhesion and corrosion resistance.

Prep body panels for painting quickly with Eastwood Epoxy Primer and Catalyst. This direct-to-metal primer can be used as a paint foundation or as a sealer to prevent rust and corrosion. It’s ideal for custom-fabricated panels or parts that have been media blasted, plus you can also use it over fiberglass and body filler. The catalyst reduces drying time and increases overall hardness, getting your vehicle ready for painting sooner while also providing better long-term protection. With an easy 1:1 mix ratio, there’s no guesswork when it comes to preparation.

Trust our 2-component gray epoxy primer for cars when you need a professional solution at a DIY price. Buy a gallon of primer and catalyst to make two sprayable gallons, which covers up to 140 square feet of exterior sheet metal. You can even dry sand the primer after 2-3 days to repair minor imperfections in the body. For best results wipe down the surfaces with Eastwood Pre Painting Prep and a tack rag so they’re free of dirt, oil and contamination prior to spraying the primer. Remember, we have a 100% customer satisfaction guarantee on all painting products.

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 5 out of 5 by from Excellent - user friendly product I bought this to spray on a car I am restoring but I wanted to play with it a bit first before I used it on the car. I bought a quart of it and sprayed it on an 80 degree day. It went on smooth with the right gun and settings. I sprayed two coats and was able to sand it with 320 on the da after a couple hours. It a nice using friendly product that works excellent.

Questions & Answers

We do architectural aluminum construction and are looking for a new primer as we can no longer find self etching. Will this epoxy self level or does it need to be sanded after application? Thanks

Asked by: Bare aluminum
This primer should be sanded in order to make the flattest surface possible prior to top coating.

If I'm going to bare metal, prior to spraying the vehicle with this product what is the best sandpaper grit to use, 80, 120?

Asked by: jsibayan
80 or 120 grit paper would be sufficient. Be sure to thoroughly clean the surface after sanding and before applying this primer.

What is the best cleaner to use to clean out my spray gun? after spraying Epoxy primer from Eastwood. I sprayed your grey epoxy over a 63 Corvair Spyder that I bare metaled as a base. Thanks.

Asked by: Keith K
Lacquer thinner works best for clean up but any standard gun cleaner such as this would work too: https://www.eastwood.com/eastwood-paint-gun-and-equipment-cleaner.html

After last coat of epoxy primer. Is it best To go ahead and spray a top coat single stage paint up to 5 days.than the epoxy will cure under the paint along with the paint?. Or. After 5 days sand a little than top coat? Which way is better?

Asked by: Ray g
It can really be done either way and bond and yield a durable finish. However, in general chemical bonds between most products are ideal.

Can epoxy primer be sprayed over an oem finish

Asked by: Starcher500
Technically, all we can guarantee compatibility between our products and products we do not sell. However, in most instances if it is properly prepped and cleaned- it should be fine.

I waited 7 days before I was going to top coat the primer with chassis black.  Does epoxy primer harden up like the chassis black?
