Cortec’s high performance VpCI-395 Water-Based Epoxy Primer is a fast drying, 2K water-based epoxy one coat system that can be applied direct to metal for use as a protective primer in harsh, outdoor, unsheltered applications. VpCI-395 provides multi-metal protection that competes with most paints and zinc-rich primers. It performs well in corrosive salt spray and humidity test conditions. VpCI-395 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.
