Evercoat Slick Sand, Featherfill, G2, Polyester Primer Surfacer

I have a can of the Slick Sand sitting in my freakin' lap. It says excellent adhesion to:
  • Metal
  • Galvanized Metal
  • Aluminum
  • Wood
  • Fiberglass
  • SMC
  • Body Filler

Notice sanded original finish or 2K primer surfacer, or lacquer primer surfacer is not listed!

What the heck is this crap?


I can't see this being an accidental oversight by Evercoat.
What say you, professional painters and body personnel?
Does this mean the Slick Sand will not adhere to the other primer surfacers
[lacquer in my case] that is already covering the panel ?

I searched for info, but I didn't find an answer. The reason I am using lacquer is because I have a gallon of it, and I needed something to cover the exposed metal before I bought the Slick Sand
Thanks.

Go down to 'approved substrates' which include OEM finishes as well as refinish finishes.

Why are you using lacquer primer? Most will agree that it's old and outdated with 2k and epoxy primers that we have today.

Scrot you have worse problems to worry about with lacquer primer as your surfacer... You would be far better off using kirker, marhyde,montana, northstar,transtar etc Urethane primer surfacer... Those are dirt cheap and not the best by far, but they are tons better than anyones lacquer primer

Better listen to what these guys are saying, I was still using lacquer primer when I came here because I simply did not know any better. The only thing I can see using lacquer primer for now is if it is used for a guide coat but there are better products for that. Why would you use such an outdated inferior product under a modern paint system? And it is just that, a system that requires compatible components of which lacquer should play no part.

Nothing like a good Epoxy primer. I've used the Omni line of PPG with good results for what it costs. I also seen some pics of a fellow member evill which he sprayed Southern Polyurethane's black epoxy primer on his 911 Porsche project. Here is the link if it works.

Using the black I think would be a good idea because it looks like it would show imperfections better. I don't think the SPI is real expensive either.

Thanks, lbell101

Looks like I am S.O.L. I'll have to sand off the lacquer.
