Eastwood Self-Etch Primer Gray for Automotive Car Paint

Product Overview:

Description

True acid-etching formula sticks to virtually any clean, bare, rust-free metal to improve adhesion and durability of most non-epoxy top coats.

Eastwood Gray Self-Etching Primer

Lay the foundation for a great paint job by starting with our self-etch primer. It’s made with a true acid-etching formula that sticks to virtually any clean, bare and rust-free metal to improve adhesion and durability of most non-epoxy topcoats. As a single-stage etching primer, no catalyst is needed, simplifying the painting process so you can get project cars on the road sooner.

Our easy-to-use aerosol etches and primes bare, rust-free metal in one step. Adheres to steel, aluminum, stainless steel, and galvanized steel. With the exception of our Chassis Black line, self-etch primer is compatible with virtually any non-epoxy paint or auto finish. This includes our huge lines of single-stage urethane and acrylic lacquer automotive paints. The self-etching formula bonds better to bare metals than other aerosol primers.

Self-etching primer spray cans cover about 10 square feet, making them the right choice for body repairs and small jobs. A one-gallon gray primer can will get an entire vehicle ready for the base coat. Eastwood backs both with a 100% customer satisfaction guarantee and lifetime tech support. Visit our tech library for everything you need to know about DIY priming and painting.

Self-Etching Gray Primer Features

  • Lacquer-based, single-stage formula requires no catalyst
  • Enhances Adhesion and Durability of Most Non-Epoxy Top Coats
  • Adheres to Steel, Stainless, Aluminum and chrome
  • Great base for high-build primers
  • Withstands up to 170 degrees F
  • Available in Easy to Use Aerosol Cans or economical gallons
  • Made in the USA

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

Application Tips

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.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Use Self Etch Primer This etch primer is fantastic. It is easy to spray and lays down smooth with easy clean up after use. It also maintains a high level of contact to the surface. A great product for the value.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for spotting/correction I bought this about a month ago and it worked out great. I ended up buying the spray cans since I was using this to help me single out any low-spots before laying down the epoxy primer. 5 cans covers an entire cab pretty well and really helps smooth out any lines or divots.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from stretching primer I purchased a gallon of the premixed etching primer. It looked thinner than water when I stirred it. I used an entire gallon over bare metal and only covered 2 fenders and half my Cab. Coverage is very poor. I will not be purchasing any more of their pre-mixed paint. I have their unmixec urethane primer and it covers very well.

Can the gallon primer be sprayed? If so, do I need to add a hardner to it or can it be sprayed direct out of the can?

Asked by: E_B_
Self Etching Primer can be sprayed as it is directly from the can. Self Etching Primer must be applied directly over clean bare metal.
