No epoxy primers in California?

After reading pages and pages of info here I went to the paint store to get a different primer / sealer. I was told that no 2 part epoxy primers can be sold in California. Is this true?

calif sucks

One of the reasons I moved out of Calif. A few years my nephew was volunteering, helping do a restoration for a museum .. Half way through the final painting they needed more paint, No longer available, One of the volunteers was a truck driver and bought enough out of state to finish the job.

Cali might have been the birthplace of the hotrod culture so it seems only fitting for it to be the death bed too...

Materials in Cal have to be under 2.1 voc. Spi materials are legal in California..

I believe there are different rules in different counties. A few of the guys in my car club will go to Monterey County for acrylic enamels. Where in Ca. are you? S. Ca. restrictions are tough, the San Joaquin Valley is tough, I really don't know if it is regulations or the paint stores not wanting to adhere to all the regulations that may come with selling certain products. Check out the farm supply places, painting a tractor usually has exemptions. I have never heard of a bad word with SPI products, the owner frequents this board and may be able to hook you up. Dan

acrylic lacquer high solids primer surfacer

I live in Canyon Lake, Ca. (southern Ca.) Crap! I was hoping he was wrong. He sold me Acrylic lacquer high solids primer surfacer. The only paint I could get was alkyd urethane. I read in one of the posts here where the only time I should use lacquer primer is under lacquer base. That kinda puts me between a rock and a hard spot. Do you think my acrylic lacquer primer surfacer and alkyd urethane single stage will get the job done. Do I still need a sealer as well?

I got some AXIS 2.1 epoxy not long ago out here in San Diego. I don't think it is outlawed.

Spi

Thanks for all the help! My paint job could have ended in disaster. No lacquer for me. I'm in the process of ordering from SPI.
