Morton primer surfacer

Has anyone ever used Morton Easy Fill urethane primer? Work good?
I can get a gallon for $90.00 and seems like an economical alternative to PPG.
Do you guys stick with one brand for primer to top coat?
Thanks

Welcome 68... I used a gallon of the Morton before.. I had sand scratches come back on me down the road... I sanded my filler work with 80 and no finer...

I think if you sanded you filler work with 180 and prime, block 180, prime, block with 400.. you should be fine... Dont forget to guide coat... very very important

Cool, thanks for the reply. Maybe I should just stick with PPG.
Thanks

I've used a few gallons of that stuff in years past. In my opinion you've got some way better options available. It sands a heck of a lot harder than most urethane primer surfacers and wetsanding is poor. This primer is a strange duck IMO with a slow rate of cure. Just my opinion though, I'm sure others may disagree. Bob

What would the way better options be; should I stick with PPG and if so would you recommend the K36 or K38 or maybe something out of the Omni line?
Thanks

After using the Morton and comparing it to others I wouldn't recomend it. K36 is good and has proven itself for years, K38 is also good and has been around for quite awhile now. NCP270 and 271 work well IMO. Omni MP182 works but does show more shinkage than 36 and 38 IMO, Omni MP282 SV is some easy sanding high build primer with no shrinkage problems that I've seen when I tried it. Omni products are budget orientated and supposedly have a shorter lifespan that Global, Deltron, and Nexa PPG products. No warranty with Omni.

Or you could go with SPI Southern Polyurethanes Inc for top notch quality primers at reasonable prices.

Marhyde, Transtar, U-tech, Valspar, Nason, Keystone... also offer economical alternatives. There's many to pick from.
