    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use with a great finish I chose this product over the more expensive UPOL stuff and Im glad I did. It goes on nicely with a nice thick coat. It flashed off pretty quickly ( I used a heat gun) and dried to really nice smooth, and most importantly, hard finish. It passed the ginger nail test. In fairness the finidh of the primer was better thsn the topcoat of enamel I put on. Highly recommended. I bought one can and it has covered a large van sump? Four engine brackets and I have plenty left. Well done halfords

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Even spray pattern Very even spray pattern that goes on smoothly giving a nice flat base coat. Gets into tiny surface scratches great. Only bugbear is that instructions say to leave for 24hrs. DO NOT do this. 1-2hrs to flash off then apply colour coat. If you leave it 24hrs the colour coat won't stick to the primer. I'd also suggest wiping down with a tac rag before colour. Also it only sprays upright, a pain when you're doing wheels A bulk buy discount would be nice for those larger projects. Also Halfords should offer to take back empties for recycling. Not all council schemes will accept empty paint tins. Helped me make a great job of my wheels. But remember, PREP is everything when you're painting.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does as it says on the tin Works well with good spray pattern and flat finish. Need to be careful you aren't too close and you need to use a mask

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality I was very pleased with the results from this primer. I used it on aluminium and as long as the surface is keyed up and cleaned properly it grabs to the metal very well. The finish colour coat grabbed well to this primer and is pretty hardy too: it doesn' t just flake off. It was bought with some reluctance over a more expensive branded product, but I would definitely buy this again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well on aluminium I needed to paint some aluminium. A few coats of this primer got a really good grip and provided a good base for a Halfords Satin Black spray top coat.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Halfords Etch Primer 500ml I had a problem surface to prime, that was such a surface as Aluminium. This aerosol can had all the right instructions written on it and had a good appearance. The primer had good coverage and adhered well to the Aluminium.
