Ecodur 201 Q&A: Coating over inorganic primers

The surface to be coated will be an inorganic zinc rich primer. They need the exposed surfaces and bolts coated. Is this acceptable surface prep for Ecodur Coating?

Inorganic primers tend to provide enough of a matte finish for the Ecodur 201 to hang onto. The ships that are currently being worked on have similar primers which were okay except where they didn’t first wait long enough for them to fully dry/cure before applying our coating on top. So the operative need is for anything underneath to be “clean, dry and tight” before we go on top.
