Frequently Asked Questions
What type of roller do I need? Can I buy one at the hardware store?
While the OptiFlow epoxy and urethane can be applied with any type of paint roller, the results will be far less than satisfactory and you will have poor coverage, as well as pinholes and trapped air because standard rollers are not designed for this type of coating. To get optimal results, even coverage and to limit sanding, you will need to use the rollers designed for the OptiFlow Primers. The larger 7” roller is ideal for large, flat panels such as doors, hoods and roofs. Use the smaller 6” Roller for roof edges, windshield pillars, body line contours and tight spaces where a large roller can’t fit.
Why do I need to use this primer rather than standard primers?
Both the OptiFlow epoxy and urethane surface were formulated to provide maximum corrosion protection, adhesion and topcoat durability. A proprietary under-indexing of the Acrylic Polyol’s provides the coatings with superior flowout in the roll-on application.
What is the difference between this and your regular primer?
The OptiFlow Epoxy and Urethane will have the same mechanical properties, corrosion protection and durability as any high quality brand professional coating. The difference is that OptiFlow is formulated for people that do not have paint gun equipment, the skills to spray, or proper area to spray apply finishes. Plus there is no overspray or paint gun to clean up, as well as the convenience of rolling.
I’ve seen people roll on "hardware-store paints" and it looked pretty good. Why do I need this primer?
"Hardware Store Primers" are single component coatings, even the most well known brands. While you can use these products, they will not last or look good for long. OptiFlow is a high performance 2 -component, catalyzed coating that is designed for automotive steel substrates that provides an exceptional corrosion barrier to the substate and promotes superior adhesion for top coats.
Can I apply in my driveway? My garage?
OptiFlow coatings are designed just for that! Inside or out because you don't have to worry about getting overspray on the neighbor's cars or everything in your garage!
How long does it take to roll on a typical coat on an entire average size car?
It only takes between 12 and 20 minutes to apply a coat on an average size car, and this includes spraying 2K AeroSpray Primer in the hard-to-reach areas.
How many coats of each primer do I need to apply?
Typically you will apply 2-4 coats of Epoxy Primer and 3 coats of Urethane Primer.
Always wear eye, respirator and skin protection. Use in a well ventilated area and consult the product MSDS sheet for specific warnings and precautions.
