    questions Paul  on 2022-05-31 13:50:38

    Please could you advise me if this etch primer can be overpainted with Teamac chassis black, without one paint reacting to the other. Thank you, Paul.

    Answer from Rawlins’ Technical Team: 

    Teamac Chassis Black is designed to be used as a primer and finish coat.

    If you choose to use the Britannia One Pack Etch Primer first we would recommend testing for compatibility and adhesion prior to full application.
