Awlgrip 545 Primer

A two component epoxy primer with corrosion and adhesion properties for steel, aluminum, wood, and fiberglass substrates. Also used to seal filler primers, and fairing work before applying topcoats. May be applied by spray, brush, or roller. May be used above or below the waterline.

Mixing and Reduction

Spray: Mix by volume one part 545 Base with one part D3001 Converter to a smooth homogenous mixture. When applying by conventional spray, reduce up to 25% with T0006. Overall mix is 1:1:1⁄2 by volume.  Example: 8 oz. 545 Base, 8 oz. D3001, 4 oz. T0006. When applying by airless spray reduce up to 5% with T0006.

Brush/Roll: Mix by volume one part 545 Base with one part D3001 Converter to a smooth homogenous mixture; reduce 5-10% with T0031. Below 77°F (25°C) you may use Cold-Cure Accelerator M3066 to maintain dry and cure times.

Induction Time after Mixing: 15 Minutes.
