Excellent when fresh

By Always Sanding

from San Diego, CA

About Me Advanced

Pros

  • Protects Well
  • Visually Pleasing

Cons

  • Difficult to Use

Best Uses

  • Outdoor

I love this stuff but you MUST get a fresh batch and avoid storing it in areas that may get hot. I have used 3 1 gallon kits of this stuff. The first one must have been old or not liked being stored at 110 degrees in my shed on some hot days. The big can was thick as toothpaste and even my drill had a tough time stirring it. I thinned it to 30% despite the 25% max and it was still funky. pulled bristles out of my brush and fuzz from the roller nap that had to be sanded out later. The second two coats were from fresher stock and came out much better than the first. Only had to thin to 20%.

    Comments about 404/414 Epoxy Primekote:

    I have build a lot of custom rudders, blades, keels and all kinds of carbon/Kevlar/fiberglass parts that require painting once finished and I have used this for many years. It is very forgiving to spray and easy to sand, especially if you sand it the next day before it completely hardens. It is an excellent product and done right, can make a perfect mirror surface. I keep a gallon or two on hand all the time since I use it so much. Spray it over putty, wood, fiberglass and all of the difficult to fair transition areas, sand with longboards and it will achieve a perfect surface but do not expect it in a single coat! No product I have used will do that, but in general, I figure 3 coats for a normal rudder finished with 80 grit, maybe 4 coats for a really rough surface. It really hangs well when wet but you CAN make it run and sag! Just give it a bit of a lighter coat and let the solvent flash off for a few minutes and you can spray all day with it. It is "liquid putty" you can spray.
