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.

Approximate Coverage per Quart is 35 SQ FT

50 State Compliant Low VOC Formula.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Restomod Chevy Worked great, paint needed extensive mixing due to settling. But all paint should be mixed thoroughly be for use. Spayed on good, dried to a good finish. I'm rebuilding a 56 Chevy with extensive body work, I'm using this epoxy to protect reworked pieces as a move to other areas of the car. I will use it extensively during this projet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product w/ good adhesion. Was having adhesion problems with epoxy primers so I did a test. Eastwood DTM epoxy primer came out #2 bested by MP170 by just a bit. So I have no problem using it on my restored classic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from epoxy primer Easy to use and it performs well. Just be ready with your high build primer to take advantage of the window for recoat. Way less work if you can spray polyester or 2k over it right away avoiding having to abrade the epoxy

Questions & Answers

I am painting an aluminum airplane where weight is a concern. Directions call for multiple coats of epoxy primer. What is the minimum amount of primer I can get away with using a single-stage urethane and is Alodine recommended under epoxy primer?

Asked by: DNeuf
Thank you for the question. We would recommend you contact a company that supplies airplane paints and coatings. Since there are many concerns with weight, proper procedures and safety guidelines for the airline industry. We do not have those guidelines as we are an Automotive Restoration DIY Authority.

I’m leaning toward using DTM Epoxy Primer because it seal’s the metal and will allow me the time needed between coats without the worries of flash rusting. I’m planning on spraying a high gloss enamel directly over the Epoxy Primer. Is this acceptable.

Asked by: Jimbo
you will have to let the epoxy cure 3-4 days, then scuff with Scotch guard pad (RED) clean thoroughly before enamel

Can oil based paint work well with this epoxy primer .. like tractor paint

Asked by: Sodiee55
Yes, you can apply oil-based paint over epoxy primer. Epoxy primer is perfect for paint jobs over various types of finishes. It creates a barrier to keep topcoats from reacting to your old paint. However, it’s important to ensure that the surface is properly prepared and cleaned before applying the oil-based paint.

My 2 coats of epoxy has been on for 1 week now, I'm taking my time. Before I apply base color, I keep seeing dry scuff after 3 days. What grit or pad should I be scuffing with? Thanks

Asked by: Nick
Use a Scotch Pad, then clean surface extremely well (Pre Paint prep) before top coat
