All Tamco Primers are full kit - they come with both primer and the required activator Are you sitting down? What if I told you that you could buy a single product to go from bare metal or flash-rusted metal -- to block sanding and ready to paint?
HP-5311 is a unique 4:1 mix product. It is a fantastic, non-shrinking high-build primer, black in color. It can be applied to any substrate - including glass! If your primer is rated for glass, you know it has incredible adhesion properties. This was the primer chosen by Dynamic Manufacturing, Inc. -- the company that produces some of the best-known tow trucks in the USA. They came to Tamco with a request: Build the best primer possible, and make it so that it can be applied it to every surface needing paint on these trucks -- even those that can't be sanded. Oh by the way, make it so it holds up to the daily rigors of a tow truck fleet, too.
The fewer solvent products you can use in the stack of film on your car, the better. Why not go with a direct-to-metal primer that has great build and sanding qualities -- and avoid the typical sandwich of products you usually deal with?
One word of advice on this primer. It is so thick due to the high quality resins, clay and talc in the product -- you may need to reduce it 15% to 20% to get it to atomize well in your primer gun. This is not a bad thing at all, and it means that if you want to brush this product onto your truck frame with no reduction -- have at it! On the other end of the spectrum, Tamco has processed the solids in this primer so well that you can mix it with reducer to 4:1:1 and use it as a non-sanding sealer.
See the product options above, to add a quart of Tamco's guaranteed moisture-free Premier Reducer to your order.
This fantastic primer also includes a proprietary blend of Halox™ organic rust inhibitors -- so even if your panels have a minor degree of flash rust, you can go right over that with HP-5311. It doesn't stop there -- with a non-sanding recoat window of 7 days that important restoration job you are working on will not suffer. Seriously, tell me if you find a better primer than this product from Tamco...I don't believe you will.

It has been my pleasure to get to know Tamco. This is a family run business, with decades of experience. When you call you will most likely talk with the owner, Tammy Miller. She has literally grown up in the paint business. Tammy's father, Bob Barney has been in this business since 1979 and has manufactured and sold marine paints, industrial finishes and auto refinish paints. For years the family ran one of the largest PPG jobbers in the USA. Tammy's husband Sean Miller is the lead tech guy who also manages the production facility in Smithfield, Virginia. They take personal pride in their craft and you will not be disappointed by them or their high quality refinishing products.
