Eastwood High-Build Self-Etching Gray Primer for Automotive Car Paint

Product Overview:

Description

Get newly-fabricated parts and body panels ready for their finishing touches with Eastwood High-Build Self-Etching Primer in Gray. This sandable primer is the best high-build primer for cars, filling in imperfections as it prepares bare metal for non-epoxy topcoats. The result is a smooth surface that improved the color hold-out of the paint or primer that’s added on top.

Eastwood's high-build primers have a true acid-etching formula that sticks to virtually any metal that’s clean, bare and rust-free. These lacquer-based metal-etching primers improve the adhesion and durability of most non-epoxy topcoats while their high-build capabilities allow you to fill in low spots and level surfaces before topcoating. Visit the Eastwood Garage for five great ways to use epoxy primer as part of your painting project.

We offer several purchasing options for our automotive primer. The high-build primer spray can is a simple way to get good results for small fabrication projects or repairs. For larger restorations and custom cars, order the quart or gallon can. For these primers, you'll need a 1.8-2.0mm nozzle to spray using an HVLP gun. Watch our self-etching primer video above to learn more about how they work and when to use each product. Eastwood also provides free lifetime technical support to help you Do the Job Right.

Features:
  • Etches and primes bare metal in 1 step
  • Fills-in imperfections, sands easily
  • Strengthens adhesion, durability, and color hold-out
  • Use with non-epoxy primers and topcoats
  • Made in the USA

Eastwood's High-Build Self-Etching Primers have a true acid-etching formula that sticks to virtually any clean, bare, rust-free metal. These lacquer-based, metal-etching primers improve the adhesion and durability of most non-epoxy topcoats, and their high-build capabilities allow you to fill-in low spots and level-out surfaces prior to top-coating. When you use the quart or gallon can, you'll need a 1.8-2.0mm nozzle to spray these primers.




Eastwood's High-Build Self-Etching Primers improve the adhesion, durability, and color hold-out of topcoats. Not only do they etch and prime in one step, but their high-build formula also fills-in imperfections.

If you're sanding primer or body filler you have to check out the Eastwood Elite Contour DSB Dustless Sanding Block System that gives you laser straight panels while keeping you and your shop clean because it eliminates 95% of the sanding dust.

For optimum results, apply at 70 degreesF at 50% humidity or less.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Build up primer is just that I rather use the spray in this primer. I am very satisfied with this product. Sprays on easy. Definitely protects all types of metal. Guarantees no rust to ever surface again. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A new lease on life 69 Roadrunner I believe this primer is some of the best that I've used. It's a lot easer to use. An coverage is a lot better. Now I've not made it to the painting yet. But i know it's going to turn out better than what I had planned on usen.
