Base Coat Primers
Z91 Zo-Ferro Basecoat Primer-Sealer for Metal
Zo-Ferro© is a one-component; water based, low V.O.C., rust inhibiting, non-sanding basecoat primer and sealer. Zo-Ferro metal primer-sealer offers corrosion protection on metal surfaces which helps vehicles retain their anti-corrosive structural integrity. Made specifically for use with Zolatone 20 coatings, Zo-Ferro metal primer-sealer is intended for previously painted surfaces; however, it is acceptable to use on previously painted surfaces; however, it is acceptable to use on prepared bare aluminum. V.O.C. compliant and ISOCYANATE FREE, non-sanding Zo-Ferro is ready to use; but may be reduced if needed with water not to exceed 5% (1.5 oz. per quart or 6 oz. per gallon). Zo-Ferro provides excellent adhesion and flexibility over virtually all types of ferrous metal surfaces and aluminum for both interior/exterior use. Metal surfaces can be primed ahead prior to painting.
Apply by spray only. Apply one medium wet coat at 50 lbs. pressure at the gun. Clean with water immediately while wet; lacquer thinner after dry. Do not allow to dry in the gun or equipment.
- New galvanized metal must be chemically treated prior to priming and painting.
- Rusted metal should be treated with a rust converting or removing solution prior to priming with Z91 Zo-Ferro.

Epoxy (PE) Primer-Sealer for Metal and Plastic
9271 Epoxy (PE) Primer-Sealer is a very fast dry, fast curing epoxy primer that has very good corrosion resistance and adhesion. This primer is designed for use over properly cleaned and sanded or etched aluminum, properly cleaned and sanded stainless steel, properly cleaned and sanded fiberglass/SMC, all other cured primers and paints, as well as automotive plastics (except polyethylene). Epoxy (PE) Primer-Sealer can be top coated with all top coat finishes, including acrylic lacquer. For more information see the 9271 Technical Data Sheet.
Features: • May be top coated in 30-60 minutes • Good corrosion resistance in harsh environments • Good humidity resistance • Excellent color holdout • Superior adhesion to sanded bare steel, sanded fiberglass and etched or sanded aluminum • Tintable
Mix 1 part 9271 Epoxy (PE) Primer-Sealer with 1 part 9271-000C Epoxy (PE) Primer Catalyst. Spray catalyzed primer at 40-50 psi air pressure. Apply 1-2 wet coats. Allow 10-15 minutes dry time between coats. Dry film should be .75-1.0 mil. Allow 30-60 minutes dry time before topcoating. Thinner coats will reduce dry time before topcoating. Epoxy (PE) Primer can be top coated with all finish coatings.
Mix Ratio 1:1. Pot life 2 hours @ 70°F, 50% RH. Number of coats 1-2 medium wet. Gun set-up gravity feed 1.4-1.8 mm. HVLP Pressure 10 psi (max). Conventional pressure 30-35 psi. V.O.C.: Mixed/Sprayable: 2.70 lbs. /gal. (324 g/l), limit 5.0, actual RTS V.O.C. 2.65, % solids RTU by weight 36%.
Dry Time: Flash time 10-15 minutes. Recoat w/o sanding 30-60 min. To sand 70°F (21°C), 50% RH 30 min. Force Dry 20 min. @ 140°F. Infrared dry 10-15 min. @ 18-36 inches. Generally, this product is compliant with local Air Quality Management Districts. Users are ultimately responsible for determining applicable regulatory status. Consult with local regulatory agency for allowable usage conditions and disposal methods.
IMPORTANT TIPS: When Zolatone 20 Series is sprayed on top of Epoxy (PE) Primer-Sealer (after approximately 30 minutes), the two products develop excellent inter-coat adhesion improving durability and moisture resistance. If spraying light colored Zolatone colors, allow a slightly longer dry time (45 minutes) on the Epoxy (PE) Primer-Sealer. This will prevent yellowing of the light colored Zolatone colors.
