69 widetrack Only rattle can product I use with respect to primer or paint is weld through primer, better than nothing at all...all others, don't trust them, don't use them. If I need a little Epoxy, I mix a little Epoxy. At $22.00 a can, I don't see any upside over using a product that I mix, that I monitor induction times, that I apply with proper air pressure.

327NUT Northstar....I used one of those little bottles and aresol cans for my boat trailer repair. I was skeptical at first but it actually came out pretty nice, perfect deal for doing a trunk or engine bay.

Northstar T If you're just doing a small area and don't have a compressor, why not use one of the cheep spray setups that use a bottle and aresol propelant can? mix a small amount of good epoxy and don't worry about not using all your primer in one day.
just curious.

MARTINSR Yeah Red, now that I read it again it is a little "gushing".

oldred First post and he's hawking a product? Look at how that's written, he even lists the part number. This has SPAM written all over it! Eastwood junk!

MARTINSR I too was very impressed with the one I used. There IS a place for rattle cans!

Try Spray Max 2K Epoxy Primer in a Rattlecan...

Recently purchased two cans of Spray Max 2K Epoxy Primer PN 680032 from Eastwood; sprayed bare metal trunk compartment in a mid-engine exotic because I needed a paint that wouldn't disolve from a drop of brake fluid. Spray Max 2K Epoxy Primer spray nozzle worked exceptionally well, layed down a very nice even coat which curred overnight. I will definitely be using this paint again... Was very impressed with results. As good as any professional spraygun, without the cleanup mess.

rattle can epoxy primer

I originally wanted the rattle can epoxy primer to spray an INSIDE AREA ONLY of the roof of my 33 Ford. Down the road when I do the car I plan on using my spray gun/gallon mix of epoxy to finish off the interior & exterior portions of the car. I currently have the roof off in preparation for chopping the top. The car was originally painted & I left it that way for rust prevention, figuring I would totally strip it when needed. However, doing some repairs to the drip rail area that had rusted led me to discover some prior owner had lap welded a section into the roof about 3 inches above the windshield frame. There is a major reinforcement piece beneath this area that housed the wipers & I guess provided some support to the roof. I've removed this support piece so I can hammer & dolly the suspect area after repair. Subsequently I was planning on using the rattle can epoxy to protect this small area only. Maybe there is a better way - what other materials might be a better solution ? I will eventually have a head liner in the car, so I don't plan on spraying a top coat.

adtkart The time factor may be a problem for many. I know a lot of people that only make it to the garage on weekends. They would have to use it all on one weekend, or throw it out the next time they went out there. It would work good for someone that simply has a small spot they are trying to fix, and they are not set up for spraying with a gun.

302 Z28 Ah, so that is how it works.

crashtech That's kinda neat. Might prove pretty handy for the DIY guy. The 96 hour "pot life" is not bad either, though it does take away some of the convenience factor.

If you are needing to use spray can primer, I believe this would be the one to try!

Jon The 2-part aerosol mixing method is interesting, although likely not the "best" solution for most situations.

Rubber Seal got back to me. It looks like they don't yet have the info up on the web, but they sent me a data sheet. Attached is a pdf of their 2K Jet Dry Epoxy Primer/Sealer.

I've also started a simple wiki entry: Epoxy primer. Feel free to add information, edit for clarity, or correct any errors I may have made.

adtkart I just got an order of SPI black epoxy and activator. The total cost for 2 gallons mixed was about $142. Which is less than the cost of 7 cans of that stuff. Not sure how much actual paint is in those cans, but can be sure that 7 cans is no where near 2 gallons.

For someone that has no compressor and only a small area to do, it may be a viable option. Other than that, I can't imagine going that route.

Sometimes cost does not get you the best epoxy...PPG DPLF comes to mind.
