Epoxy Primekote (formerly Epoxy Barrier-Kote) is a multi-purpose two-part epoxy primer that sands freely without loading the sandpaper.
Epoxy Primekote can be used with any topside paint but it is the recommended primer for use with two-part finishes such as Perfection and can also be overcoated with Toplac, Brightside, Interlux Yacht Enamel, Interdeck and Bilgekote. It is also used as part of a system to re-surface cracked and crazed gelcoat prior to the application of topside paint.
Use Epoxy Primekote over clear epoxies as a sanding surfacer and to eliminate the effects of amine blush. Epoxy Primekote is bright white, which makes it ideal for priming bilge and locker areas. Can also be used in some underwater systems.
