This new primer-sealer should be used with two new activators, 822S standard and 823S slow, to help achieve greater application flexibility.

Corlar 821CR Epoxy Primer is recommended for use on OEM replacement parts, properly sanded or prepared steel, aluminum, galvanized steel or stainless steel, and under Axalta commercial vehicle primers and topcoats.
