Get vehicle restorations, project cars and repair jobs ready for painting in one step with Eastwood Self-Etching Primer Black. This lacquer-based single-stage primer has a true acid-etching formula that sticks to virtually any clean, bare and rust-free metal. Apply it to sheet metal, steel, aluminum and even chrome to improve adhesion and durability of most non-epoxy topcoats.

There are many DIY uses for our black etch primer. It can be the main base for many automotive finishes , including single-stage urethanes, flats and engine paints. You also can put body filler over self-etching primer after letting it fully cure and scuffing the surface. This makes it a great pre-primer to fix imperfections before applying a high-build or urethane primer. For chassis and undercarriages, you might even simply put a clear coat or seam sealer over it and let the black color shine through. Our article about Where and When to Use Epoxy Primer has even more ideas and suggestions.

Eastwood offers both 16-oz. aerosol sprays and 1-gallon cans of our high-temp self-etching auto primer. The spray can is easy to use for spot repairs and bonds better than other aerosol primers while a gallon can has more value for big projects. Visit the Eastwood Garage to learn more about how self-etching primers help you Do the Job Right.

About Eastwood Self-Etch Primer Black

This easy-to-use aerosol etches and primes bare, rust-free metal in one step. It adheres to steel, aluminum, stainless steel and galvanized steel and is compatible with virtually any non-epoxy paint or auto finish (this does not include our Chassis Black and epoxy topcoats). The self-etching formula bonds better to bare metals than other aerosol primers. It is also a single-stage formula that requires no catalyst, making it even easier to use.


16-oz. aerosol can covers about 10 sq. ft.
Gallon (120-sq.-ft. coverage) for your best value!


Our Chassis Black paints do not stick well to this and other single-stage self-etching primers. This Self-Etching primer uses an aggressive solvent system to assure excellent adhesion to clean, rust-free metal. Exercise care when using this product over enamel finishes as lifting may occur. Eastwood's Self-Etching Primer is lacquer-based.
