Barrier Coat Primer
Originally, I used this product as an anti~corrosive tie in coat below the waterline of my steel cutter. Also, hit a rusty spot on my old car with a grinder and quick slap of this which I never overcoated. That was five years ago and both are still doing well. In fact, this winter the ice wore all the bottom paint away from the boat but the EP 1000 held on. Now, after contacting manufacturer for an advice, I'm using it to prime the deck and hull for painting. Love this stuff!
