I do know it can be used as one but that is a confusing usage of terms.
he reason I started using the epoxy for sealer is that they stopped making the products I had learned to trust I tried two different brands my paint store switched to. "Garbage"! Then I tried the over-reduced SPI epoxy, and was very happy with it!

And I was being nice too....
I have to buy my own materials so I want the best at the lowest possible price, PPG products don't come close to either but if you want poor performance at an outrageous price then go for it. Personally, I don't like getting bent over.
I do like their base coats though, good coverage and color matches that's mostly what I use for my paints, I don't use their clears either just base coats.
Stick around a while if you think what I have to say about PPG is blatant and anti PPG wait till I get going on Dupont and the other rip off artists. I just don't believe we should be paying CEO's to go to the Bahamas for a manicure. meanwhile theres a bodyman having trouble with their DPLF epoxy primer and theres no body around to call to get to the bottom of it. The only thing PPG does well is paints.
As a company, I have about as much respect for it as I do for the guy selling bottled water for 10.00 ea at a disaster area.

I have never had the luxury of choosing brands. I do have the option to remove my presence.

You also have the option of listening to good solid advise from experienced tradesmen that have been there and done that.
It sounds like your boss is into saving money though, so why would anyone buy low end materials like omini primer when he could have the good stuff for about the same price. You should ask him that, most times they simply don't know theres another option.
