Eastwood Gray Epoxy Primer and Catalyst - for Automotive Car Paint - 2 Gallon Kit

Product Overview:

Description

Eastwood Gray DTM (Direct To Metal) Epoxy Primer 1:1 primes and seals with excellent adhesion and corrosion resistance. 50 State Compliant Low VOC Formula.

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.

Specifications

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 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I was happy that I bought this product it went on very easy

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Roll on epoxy primer (grey) Although it is probably the best roll on epoxy primer. The gallon can had a rock hard sediment layer about 1 inch thick (the filler I'm guessing) that wouldn't mix eastwood quickly rectified the situation awsome customer service. Nice people extremely polite took care of me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Shipping leaves more to be desired. The epoxy primer is good, however the shipping and protection of the shipment sucked. The can was all dented up and leaking. Thankfully I had saved my empty can and poured it in that.

Questions & Answers

If I use this primer on my car over bare metal and bondo. Can I leave it outside in the elements without worrying about it rusting underneath? And then when I go to work on it again would I just sand before paint?

Asked by: Nerdeth
Epoxy the bare steel.  Then bondo. And I would put a coat of epoxy over the fresh bondo because you will prob sand through a bit. Then you can put it outside

I am doing a complete paint job with the car disassembled.  The car is painted with 40 year old lacquer and I will strip it to bare metal.  On the inside of the fenders and other panels, is it necessary to get all the old paint off before shooting epoxy?

Asked by: Joemama
Best recommendation will always be to strip everything down to bare clean metal. Like any company, we can technically not guarantee compatibility between our items and existing products. However, it is very unlikely that you would run into any issues if some were left behind and the Epoxy applied over.

I'll try again: If I buy this primer and catalyst and only use a 1/2 gallon of the primer and a half quart of the catalyst, leaving a 1/2 gallon in the primer can and a 1/2 quart in the catalyst can, how long can those half full cans sit on the shelf ??

Asked by: dannydatsun
Around 9 Months in in a cool dry place, Temperature will affect the time + or -.

Does it need to be reduced in order to be used as sealer?
