VpCI-395 Water-Based Epoxy Primer


The VpCI-395 Water-Based Epoxy Primer is a fast drying, one coat system that can be applied direct to metal for use as a protective primer in harsh, outdoor, and unsheltered applications. It provides multi-metal protection that competes with most paints and zinc-rich primers. It performs well in corrosive salt spray and humidity test conditions. It is dry to touch in 20-30 minutes and dry to handle in one to two hours, curing to a pencil hardness of H in three to seven days. It provides high level 5B adhesion, integral to a good coatings bond.


The epoxy primer works well where an anticorrosion coating is needed for immersion applications and chemical resistance. A urethane topcoat is recommended for enhanced durability in outdoor conditions, but a second layer of VpCI-395 can also be used as a topcoat in interior-only applications (no UV exposure). Custom color matching options make it easy to coordinate with a facility’s color scheme.


A prime characteristic is its two-component (2K) makeup. While one component systems are most convenient for painters, two component coatings offer the greatest coating durability because of chemistry crosslinking that can only take place during on-the-job mixing of a two-part system. Other positive characteristics of the epoxy primer are that it is water-based and has a low VOC of 24 g/L, limiting worker exposure to solvents and facilitating easier cleanup.


For best results, a 2K option such as VpCI-395 is optimal for good corrosion protection, chemical resistance, and durability.
