R-Mer Coat Primer is a water-based, low-VOC primer specifically formulated to be used with the R-Mer Coat topcoat. R-Mer Coat Primer enhances the adhesion of R-Mer Coat to both ferrous and non-ferrous metal substrates and even coated metal surfaces, providing a long-lasting and durable finish. R-Mer Coat primer and R-Mer Coat topcoat combine to form one of the highest-performing exterior coating systems available on the market.
|Ambient air temperature is important to the primer performance -the air and material temperature must all be between en 50°-90°F (10°-32.2°C) and at least 5°F (-15°C) above the dew point. Do not apply if rain is expected within 24 hours or if the air or surface temperature is expected to drop below 50°F (10°C) for 24 hours after application. Do not apply the coatings in direct sunlight as it will negatively affect flow and cure time. R-Mer Coat Primer must be applied with approved spray equipment-the Graco GMAXII 7900 or an equivalent pump. The airless spray pump must have a minimum 2,500 psi output pressure rating as well as adequate delivery volume to support the spray tip orifice gallons per minute rating. Proper pressure will vary by job, hose length, tube size and width of substrate. Please consult the Garland R-Mer Coat spray guide for complete details.

R-Mer Coat Primer's unique chemistry adheres tenaciously to a multitude of metal surfaces, so there are no concerns of failed bonding or peeling on the substrate. The R-Mer Coat Primer complements the R-Mer Coat Topcoat, completing the secure system bond for long-term performance.
Just one thin coat of R-Mer Coat Primer outperforms standard paint primers. With less material needed to complete the job, R-Mer Coat Primer is an economical solution with long-term durability and performance.
With a low VOC content, this product is very environmentally friendly. In the event of overspray, R-Mer Coat Primer can be cleaned off surfaces with warm, soapy water before drying instead of harsh solvents or cleaning agents.
