searched.. SPI epoxy is it universal?

Sorry if I missed this question somewhere in the forum but the SPI epoxy (ive read a ton on it and I know its great stuff) But can any brand of primers or bases be applied directly over it?? Is it universal??

Not trying to steel the thread or anything, but has anyone had any problems with shipping SPI Epoxy in the winter???? I hate to order some and have it freeze along the way..... (I usually have that happen once or twice a year with refractories and coatings for work)

I'm going to start working on my doors on the V8 bug and would like to get them in epoxy soon.

Although next week is supposed to be in the mid 40's and 50's here, so maybe it would be a good time to order some.......


Thanks guys

If you are concerned, then call SPI/Barry K (Tech line - (404) 307-9740) for assurances that it wont freeze. I left mine in my garage at minus something and it's fine, but ......

That's interesting, never thought of that. It's Pretty cold here in SD. Good to know I can use anything with the spi stuff. My garage is heated but I don't turn it on unless ill be working out there. I keep all my paint supplies in a cabinet out there and I was worried about them freezing. I read the labels on everything I have, and I couldn't find anything that said do not store in freezing temps, but I still wouldn't want to. I think I would be worried about a delivery of a new product this time of year, if it sat outside until I got home....

also before id paint id bring all my materials in the house the night before, and have the heater on all night so the metal would be a paintable temp

Like Shine says the epoxy when mixed will be dormant if the temps are under 65.
IMHO, All paint should be stored in a non freezing location.
Just get an old refer or upright freezer, put a 100 watt light bulb in it that is always on and store your paint in it.
Your shop can get very cold before the "paint storage cabinet" ever gets near freezing.
