Eastwood Self-Etch Primer Gray

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.

  • 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.

Contents

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

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.

Customer 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.

How long can I leave this on before priming over it?

Asked by: DBcat
There is not a maximum amount of time as long as it is stored indoors and not exposed to sunlight or the elements. After a day or so has elapsed since applying it just scuff with 400-600 grit paper before applying anything further.
