National Paint Waterbase Epoxy Tie-Kote is a two component water based epoxy tie-coat/sealer with excellent adhesive properties existing one and two part finishes. Primarily used on cleaned existing finishes which will be over coated with a two component solvent based finish which may attack the existing finish and cause a loss of adhesion. Can be used over chlorinated polymer pool paints, conventional solvent based and water based finishes such as alkyds, vinyls, acrylics and latex. Ideally applied by roller or brush but can be sprayed if desired.
