Product Details

TotalBoat 2-Part Clear Epoxy Primer is a super-clear, epoxy tie-coat primer and surface sealer that provides strong adhesion for clear urethane finishes on carbon fiber layups. This unique, clear primer produces a good build coat that fills the weave and smooths the surface so it can be overcoated with a clear, UV-protective coating such as clear urethane topcoat or varnish.
