Protectakote EP90 Universal Epoxy Primer is a two pack easy to use primer suitable for use with Polyurethane topcoats such as Protectakote and Safekote. It offers exceptional adhesion to a large variety of substrates combined with the flexibility necessary for urethanes. It’s ideal for concrete, plaster, metals, wood, stone and existing coatings and has ant corrosive properties for ferrous metals.


Protectakote EP90 Universal epoxy primer is a two pack general purpose primer suitable for Polyurethane topcoats. It

It helps to provide a sealed, consolidated and strengthened surface in porous substrates while providing the moisture barrier required by urethanes along with improved adhesion. EP90 is recommended for use with Protectakote, Protectakote UVR and Safekote. It is also recommended for use with ferrous metals where it improves adhesion and reduces sub-film corrosion.
