Tamco DTM Quart Primer Kits (Direct to Metal) Also DTR

Color Options: Grey, Black, White

Hardener Options: HH3100

Like our clears, we wanted to develop ultra-high-quality foundation primers.

Our 5300 series primers boast a true direct to metal resin (same as in our clears) which means it can be used on the entire vehicle. Many others claim to be direct to metal but tell you not to apply on anything larger than the size of a quarter. Another unique attribute of this series is that has a really high build much like a polyester filler primer. However, while our build is the same, it has flexibility and won’t crack like a polyester. It also uses an actual ISO hardener that allows it to crosslink to the substrate. The cheaper polyester primers only use MEKP which does nothing than offer a chemical reaction which is a weak point in refinishing. If that wasn’t enough the 5311 has rust encapsulation properties. What that means is that if you have blasted a car and it sat overnight and has flash rust can simply scuff and clean the panel and apply directly over the rust. We have actually taken this to the extreme to see how well this primer will encapsulate. Over 10 years ago we took a rusty panel and applied 5311 over it. Since that time it has been out in elements and the rust has not come back through. As said this is an extreme case and we don’t recommend going over heavy rust like this but the product has proven to withstand the torture. Another nice feature of the 5300 series primers is that they can be reduced and used as a silky-smooth sealer which allows you to use one product instead of having to buy a dedicated primer and a dedicated sealer. It is available in white, black and grey. These products were not designed to provide protection on vehicles left outside in the elements and we recommend first applying our DTA epoxy first if using on a long-term restoration.

**New User tip 5310/5311/5312**

This primer does best with a 2.0-2.5 tip. If you want the best build, the best flow, a 2.5 is recommended. This will give you amazing build, and spray-ability, and no shrinkage with this series. No reduction needed when used this way. With a 1.8 tip you’ll need to mix it 4:1:1 with primer hardener. If you're using HH7607 mix 5:1:2 to spray as a sealer in very warm hot climates, or booths with high air flow.

Kit Includes:
1- HP5300 Series Primer Quart 32oz
