When designing the formulation for our 5310/5212/5313 primer we looked at what was available on the market and and what people in the refinish industry wanted. We came up with a primer that is completely unique in the industry. Many restoration shops use a polyester primer for its build properties to get laser straight panels. The downside to polyester is that it isn't catalyzed and can crack when applied too heavy. Not only that it is very hard to sand. When you use an un-catalyzed product that becomes a weak point in your finish. Your foundation is the most important step on any collision or restoration project. Keeping that in mind we developed a primer that builds like a polyester, is a true direct to metal, doesn't crack, won't shrink on sand scratches, is easy sanding and can even be reduced as a sealer. We combined all those things into one product to make your job easier and save you time and money.

Little breakdown on the details....

HP5310 primer is DTM **The Gateway Primer**

(all over direct to metal) not just small sections. This can be used in place of epoxy on different occasions and projects. This primer should be topcoated ideally within 2-3 months. It's never meant to stay outside Untopcoated.... (like epoxy can be) Store inside only, meaning do not leave it in the elements. This primer has a perfect amount of flexibility built in. It's not brittle and prone to cracking.(as poly filler "primers" are) This primer will not shrink. It's 65% solids. Builds like crazy, It can be sanded in as soon as 45 minutes, Blocks like butter! Temperatures come into play with sanding times. It can be mixed 4:1:2 and turned into A DTM sealer.It may be "value shaded", we offer several colors. This primer Is NOT modeled after another. It's completely unique to Tamco. Nothing like it on the market. And once used that's seen. It's extremely thick. It's meant to be. Most spray reduced about 10% with a urethane reducer. Some 4:1 with a 2-2.2 tip no reducer. The more you reduce, the more the build will be cut.

If you got little rust ants that leave a little pit and you can still see it when you spray this primer over it there gone for good. Your customer's not gonna pull back up in 10 moths and ask what those little bubbles are cause there's not gonna be any. I love it

Best primer I have ever used. This stuff works great in places you can't sand good and stop those little measles (I call those little rust dots). They aren't coming back if you use this stuff

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW, this is the only rust encapsulating, direct to metal, high build 2k primer on the market that actually works, usually you will need to put down etch primer or epoxy before you start, not with this, the worst thing is when a customer comes back with a tiny bubble a year later on a 15k paint job and its RUST rearing its ugly head, this primer will encapsulate that rust

Direct to anything primer. Restorers dream primer for industry best corrosion resistance. Excellent for wood as well like guitar bodies. Wear gloves, stuff sticks to everything.
