  • Developed Specifically To Topcoat Other POR-15® Finishes
  • Quick Drying And Easy-To-Apply
  • Cover With POR-15® Topcoats, Lacquers, Enamels, and Two-Component Finishes
  • May Be Topcoated After Only 15-30 Minutes
  • Not A High-Build Primer

In response to many customer inquiries requesting a quick drying and easy-to-apply coating which enables a restorer to quickly topcoat POR-15® and other basecoats, this POR-15® Self-Etch Primer was developed.  With this product, you can even topcoat POR-15® that's been in place for months or years.  POR-15® Self-Etch Primer is NOT a high-build primer, like POR-15's High Build Primer, but it can be sprayed or brushed on almost any painted surface then can be topcoated in 15-30 minutes. It bonds incredibly well to POR-15® Rust Preventive Paint, and all topcoats bond incredibly well to POR-15® Self-Etch Primer. It can be sanded lightly, and if desired multiple coats may be applied.  
We strongly recommend this fine product, which is available in pints, quarts, and gallons, as well as a large aerosol spray (15 ounces). In situations where you are topcoating a very old POR-15® finish, we first recommend a light sanding with any 280 to 320 grit paper to promote thorough etching.
