For bare metal surfaces. Must be thinned with etch primer thinners using a 1:1 ratio.


Etch Primer – Light Grey. Used for any areas of bare metal prior to the Coach Enamel top coat, to ensure good paint adhesion. Paintman Paint Etch Primer – Light Grey is a traditional synthetic etch Primer. For spray application only.

Spray application: All of our Etch Primers will need to be diluted 1:1 (50% thinner, 50% primer) using Paintman Etch Thinners 2691,  thus ensuring the highest quality finish and maintaining correct drying times. Standard Coach Enamel Thinners are not compatible with Etch Primers and it is important not to mix the incorrect type of thinners as it can cause the paint to curdle.

Here at Paintman Paint, we take pride in only producing the highest quality primers that will give you the perfect base for using our Paintman Paint Coach Enamel giving superb coverage with high build and scratch filling properties.
