Great stuff! Has excellent adhesion to stainless steel and aluminum with no surface prep other than cleaning. There is no need to sand or pre-etch. For best durability, should be used with a top coat from the SEM Color Coat line of paints.

Q: Would SEM self etching primer be suitable to use on interior aluminum wing parts by itself for corrosion protection without any top coating?

Per supplier, I have spoken to many customers about this application and although it seems to work for them, Self Etching Primer is not intended to be used as a topcoat. My recommendation would be to use our EZ Coat product. It is a direct to metal and aluminum topcoat that has excellent adhesion and is available in 6 colors (Black, Olive Green, Light Green, Gray, Tan, Olive Brown). See "Alternate Items" for a link to the web page.

Q: Is this SEM self etching primer dope-proof?

This self etching primer is primarily used on metal or plastic parts, and nitrate/butyrate dopes are used on fabric. We could not find any information on how well it would work with dope.

Q: Is this primer compatible with Tempo Engine Enamel? Part# 09-00995 MFR Model# 069.000A241.076 I need to strip and repaint the aluminum heat-shield behind a radial engine, and I sure dont want the paint to peel later.

The data sheet for the Tempo paint only states to prime bare metal before painting. The 09-03594 primer will work with aluminum so these products should be compatible.
