Majic All Purpose Enamel Shop Primer, Gray Primer, 1 gal. is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wish I had seen the other reviews before shopping We spent good money on getting a trailer sandblasted then sprayed a primer coat of this product on clean metal. The next morning there was rust all over and bleeding through. Now we are left with trying to fix this problem. What a shame that TS carries such a poor product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk Worse primer I have ever used. No coverage, goes on very grainy even with using a natural soft bristle brush. Put on first coat and that will be all, I will be returning this junk ASAP. This primer comes at a cost of additional labor and supplies!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap paint I am a profesional painter. This stuff has very little adheasion. It wipes right off after drying even when applied on very clean metal. It does not hold a topcoat worth a blank. Don't waste your money on cheap paint.

Would I be able to sand this primer to remove any imperfections before applying a base coat?

Asked by: KnightlyGrim
Majic All Purpose Gray Shop Primer is a good quality, hard-drying oil/alkyd coating that provides tight adhesion, good corrosion resistance, and very good hold out of sheened finishes. When applied in strict accordance to the printed directions (with special attention to the recommended applied thickness (not to exceed 3.0 mils wet), and the allowable re-coat time (minimum 24 hours) – this material should be dry enough to sand the primer at 24 hours with 220 grit paper (or finer) – please understand that if the product is applied too heavily, and/or re-coated too soon, the film will not dry “hard” for possibly several days…or longer. Re-coat, and sanding, restrictions may need to be adjusted based on temperature and humidity – Do not thin product, and avoid painting in direct sunlight, or when rain is expected within 8 hours of painting.

Looking for recommendations for how to spray. Does this need to be thinned and if so with what?

Asked by: FWR1
Per the manufacturer: Generally, Majic All Purpose Shop Primer requires no reduction for spray (airless or conventional), but if reduction is necessary, or desired, use only Majic Reducer, TSC SKU: 1177119, up to approximately 5% (about 6 ounces per gallon). Do not use a Catalyst Hardener with the All Purpose line of Primers or Finish Enamels. For proper drying, and cure, apply product in thin coats (not to exceed 4.0 mils wet), and allow 24 hours between coats, or before applying finish.

Can I use this for refurbished a cattle feed bunk and if so what paint can I cover with.

Asked by: Oliviamarie
This is the vendor's response: Majic AP Enamel Shop Primer Gray is a utility grade, rust-inhibitive oil base primer designed, primarily, for use on clean, dry and properly prepared ferrous metal surfaces. Any rust should be removed by wire brushing, grinding, or blasting before priming, all bare metal needs priming, and new sheet metal should be sanded, or etched, for a better mechanical adhesion with AP Shop Primer. Apply AP Shop Primer by brush, roller or spray, in strict accordance to package directions - with special attention given to recommended applied thickness (thin coats @ 3-4 mils wet) & allowable recoat times (minimum 24 hours). Air, and surface, temps should be above 55° F. , with relative humidity at less than 60% (cooler temps and/or higher humidity will slow drying and cure of oil base products). Do NOT thin product for application, and the use of a catalyst hardener is NOT recommended with Majic All Purpose Primers or Enamels. Once dry, product may be topcoated (finished) with either Majic All Purpose Enamel, or Majic Tractor, Truck & Implement Enamels, again in accordance to package directions. For best results, 2 coats of finish are recommended over primer – and allow ample curing before putting into use.

Can I use this all purpose oil based primer and the Majic Catalist hardener to paint a hard deck surface before a top cote of exterior oil based paint?

Asked by: Joel10
Majic All Purpose Enamel Shop Primer Gray is an all purpose, utility enamel. It is fine for use on wood (and other) surfaces, and may be used as a prime coat for oil base, or latex topcoats. The limitations for this product are as follows: Majic AP Primer is not designed for use on wood decks, nor wood surfaces subject to traffic (foot or vehicular). Majic AP Primer, and Enamels, are “ready-to-apply” coatings – Do not thin, and DO NOT MIX WITH CATALYST-HARDENER. Please follow instructions carefully regarding the recommended applied thickness (3.0 mils wet), and allowable re-coat times (minimum 24 hours).
