Epoxy Primer Brands with a passing Grade ?

Reading a lot of posts on this site, it is assumed that SPI is a quality product..... for many of you this may be a viable option...... I am sure I am not alone in living in a more secluded region that does not carry this product at the local paint store.... to get SPI will cost $$$ for shipping to me..... added costs.....

I am not sure if we are allowed to mention product (although I did above ) names but can someone tell me some other A+ quality epoxy primers so when I go to my stores I can make sure they carry the product...

If not allowed to mention names can you please pm me as I am starting the stripping stage and need to buy something....

Actually if I get enough responses, I will post my results in a top 5 or most widely used thread for all to reference... could come in handy...

Still worth it and even with shipping will most likely be less than comparable quality that you can access locally. (They have to pay shipping to get the product on the shelf as well.)

Not sure where you are but here in Canada I get SPI delivered within 2 days. I had a gallon of epoxy and a gallon of 2K primer along with their activators and a gallon of their w&g cleaner for less than I could drive my truck to the next town to buy something that is inferior

Just to clarify, I think what Shine refers to, is there is NO charge for shipping when ordered directly from SPI, but only if there is not a SPI dealer covering your area.
SPI rocks!

If your criteria is availability at your local stores, why don't you ask the store owners what they recommend?

If your criteria is lowest delivery cost, and you live in "a more secluded region," are you including the cost of driving to your local store in your calculations? At close to four bucks a gallon, it doesn't take much driving to equal the shipping cost.

Of course, if your local store is real close or offers free delivery to your shop/home, go with them. I prefer to shop at home and have UPS, FedEx and my Post Office do the driving. I'm not in the business of painting cars so my local (18-mile trip) store gave me a price that should have included private limosine delivery for some PPsomething paint.

Do not use PPG DPLF, it's the worst epoxy hands down, complete useless. SPI is the one to go with without a doubt.

I second that. SPI was MUCH better for half the price.
No Brainer if I was going to paint again!

Nason, Which is owned by DuPont and sold by dealers who sell DuPont has an Epoxy that I have used and works real good also. Not too bad priced. Just another option. I have also used SPI and like it alot also.

SPI epoxy remains flexible, that's a big plus for plastics like bumpers.
That's why I use it.

I emailed them and they said they could ship product to me at no cost.
