Alexseal’s new primer dries fast

ADVERTISEMENT

South Carolina-based Alexseal has introduced its Fast Spot Primer 414, an acrylic/epoxy-based, quick-drying spot primer with a one-hour drying time.



The chemists at Alexseal have combined the fast drying properties of an acrylic polymer and the durable marine-friendly characteristics of epoxy to create the product.



The primer is designed to spot prime a surface to seal exposed underlying primers and substrates where breakthrough areas have occurred during the final sanding process, prior to applying topcoat. It is approved for use on many plastics such as PVC and acrylic, but is intended for use above the waterline only, and is not suitable for unprimed metal, the company said in a news release.
