2K Wash Etch Primer

ISSUE DATE

PART NUMBER

EM304

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A Zinc Chromate transluscent 2K Etch Primer offering outstanding adhesion and corrosion resistance when applied to metals, especially aluminium and alloys.

PRODUCT PROPERTIES

It is no longer recommended to use an etch primer under an epoxy primer. Residual acid from the etch primer can interfere with the proper curing of the epoxy. This may lead to extended dry times, potential blistering, and even adhesion failure. So next time you are planning to paint bare metal with an epoxy, follow the recommendations on the datasheet and use the epoxy directly on the properly cleaned and sanded bare metal substrate.
