Q&A

Q: Is this product (Aircraft Finish) all that is needed to paint the battery compartment on a pickup? Or is an Epoxy primer needed? If so, do you have the primer?

An epoxy primer is recommended by the manufacturer. We offer epoxy primers from PTI Products, Poly Fiber, and Randolph. A search on our web site for epoxy primer will return the relevant results.

Q: Once the can has been opened, what is the shelf life?

The material has a 4 year shelf life. The customer must seal and store properly for full shelf life once opened.

Q: Three days later its still wet. How long does it take to dry?

Per Randolph: cold and damp will impede any coating from drying. You can give it a week to be safe but there is no guarantee. Using a little heat might be the best help.

Q: My RV battery box is constructed of galvanized sheet metal. Due to acid spills about a third of the galvanizing has been eaten away. Can this product be applied to a zinc primer?

The vendor recommends applying to an epoxy primed surface. It should work with zinc primer but it is not per the vendor recommendations.
