All in one coat! Duratec Polyester Surfacing Primer provides rapid coat buildup and a smooth surface with high gloss, when required.
Here's why you should choose Duratec Polyester Surfacing Primer:
- Low porosity provides a super fine leveling and filling system on a variety of substrates with superior release properties.
- Adhesion to most epoxies with heat distortion level of 201F, 94C, the primer also adheres to fiberglass, properly prepared metal, wood, MDF, brick, concrete and polyurethane foam.
- Rapid coat buildup to 40 mils, 1000 microns, wet on wet, on composite plugs and master mold surfaces; saves time and labor cost.
- Easy sanding also saves time and labor. The primer cures to a surface that polishes to a high gloss, when required.
All time calculations are based on temperatures of 77F, 25C

How much catalyst do i use, and what type?
You would use standard MEKP catalyst as supplied with product, it is actually the same catalyst you would use with Polyester Resins at an addition of 2% ie 20ml per litre.
After applying Durabuild primer how long do i have to leave it before i can sand it down on my mdf plug?
It is best to leave the material overnight before sanding down to ensure full curing has taken place.
