Warrensville Heights, Ohio – Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes introduces E2A400, a new direct to metal epoxy primer designed for fleet and manufacturing use, but has application value in a variety of markets. This primer is US compliant at 2.1 lbs/gal VOC and boasts ready to spray solids of 48%. It provides great adhesion and applies similarly to a sealer. Along with wet-on-wet capabilities with various compatible topcoat systems, E2A400 DTM Primer also has the option to be accelerated, making it ideal for many manufacturing and fleet refinish applications.


E2A400 epoxy primer can be ordered through any of the almost 200 Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes company-owned branches that provide extensive sales support and controlled distribution throughout North America.


For more information, this new primer will be featured as the February “Product of the Month” on the Sherwin-Williams Transportation Finishes Facebook page and LinkedIn accounts.
