I sent a quick email yesterday to Dupli-Color requesting some information on the use of their product. They replied immediately with the right answer. The following is my question to them and the response I received:

[/align]Question:
On the can of DE1615, the instructions say to use an engine primer on bare metal. However, your instructions on this (Dupli-Color) website don't mention to use it...what's the correct answer? I looked at Canadian Tire, Wal-Mart, and an auto parts store but no one stocks the primer and they think it's not required. Now what?

[/align]Note: I found out later in the day that Engine Primer DE1612 is available in the U.S., but not in Canada. For those of us in Canada, look for VHT products.


Answer:
Thank you for your inquiry with Dupli-Color. You would want to use the Engine Primer DE1612 on bare metal applications for the best performing system.

A primer is always recommended for the best results. Bare metal or previously coated, a primer will offer better adhesion. You can find VHT products at Summit Racing and ATECH Motorsports. Any vendor that carries Dupli-Color can order any VHT product as we are both owned and operated by the Sherwin Williams Co.

Can labels will always be up to date and accurate and I would refer to them for proper application instructions.


For dealer locations, please contact the Dupli-Color Canadian Technical and Where-To-Buy Help Line at 1-866-736-1487
