Epoxy Ester Modified Alkyd Primer
Description: It is a fast drying, thin
film, epoxy modified alkyd primer. Provides tight
barrier protection to properly prepared steel surfaces.
Provides increased chemical resistance compared to
conventional alkyds. It is specifically design for
use on electrical transformers, but may also be used
anywhere increased chemical resistance is desired.
• Fast Drying
• Increased chemical resistance
Solids Content: 49% By Volume
• 785 mil ft²
• 262 ft²@ 3 mil
Allow for loss during mixing & application.
Recommended DFT: Two coats totaling 4-6 mils
• As supplied 445 G/L
SUBSTRATE & SURFACE PREPATION
Steel surfaces: Must be clean and dry. Prepared to a
minimum SSPC-SP1 Solvent cleaning to remove oil,
grease, dirt and other contaminants. Loose rust and
mill scale must be removed either by abrasive
blasting or hand/power tool cleaning. Maximum
performance will be achieved with a 1.0-2.0 mil blast
Galvanized Steel: Not recommended unless used
over a primer suitable for galvanized steel.
Previously painted surfaces: Remove old coatings
by abrasive blasting.
Tip size .013-.015
Output PSI- 00-2300
• Brush & Roller: Recommended only for touch up
• Brush: Natural Bristle
• Roller: ¼” Nap cover with Phenolic Core
MIXING & THINNING
Mixing: Power mix to uniform color & consistency
•Spray- Up to 12 oz/gal with HJ105
•Brush & Roll- Up to 12oz/gal with HJ-52
Pre-application: Flush all equipment with thinner
Temperature: Application range from 60F-100F
surface temperature. Do not apply below 50F.
Method: Apply one coat maintaining a wet edge to
achieve a WFT of 4-6 Mils. Multiple passes are
recommended to achieve proper WFT.
Inspection: Visually inspect for voids in coating
film. A second coat in contrasting color is
recommended for adequate hiding.
Clean up & Disposal: After use, immediately flush
all equipment with thinner HJ105. Dispose of all
containers, solvents, and unused material in
accordance with local, state

Dry to topcoat: before 2 hours after 24
Final cure: 24 hrs
Dry times are widely affected by weather
conditions and film thicknesses.
