Generally epoxies used as primers use lots of solvents and the lowest quality epoxy available. ESP is an amazing exception, probably nothing else like it available. It uses a top of the line cycloaliphatic curing system as a starting point! The other 'penetrating/sealing' epoxies are very vague about the epoxy they use in their product - bottom of the line, el cheapo stuff I would imagine.
BEST USES FOR ESP 155 EPOXY
1) PRIMER SEALER FOR CONCRETE FLOORS
often used under decorative or pigmented epoxy floor coating to improve bonding and adhesion and to reduce or stop outgassing of air from the concrete which will cause bubbles in the thicker epoxy floor paint. (will your floor epoxy vendor even tell you this?). Also when you cannot perform professional concrete floor prep (usually with a shot blast machine). And also important on floors that seem a bit weak or dusty (epoxy floor paints are surface bond only so a weak surface is a crisis waiting to happen). See floor links page. - and our other page on concrete sealing.

(you won't learn this on any other epoxy floor site)
If any of the following apply or might apply to you:
1) no vapor barrier, or don't know if there is a vapor barrier under your slab; 2) suspect there might be moisture issues in/on the slab; 3) suspect the concrete was not 'vibrated down' and contains lots of air spaces (which can cause bubbles and blisters in the wet epoxy); 4) cannot professionally prep the floor (usually means a shot blast contractor); 5) any existing coating on the floor is peeling and lifting; 6) the concrete seems dusty, gritty, weak or crumbling; 7) you are worried about "hot tire pickup" lifting off your epoxy floor; 8) you have oil stains on the floor (especially OLD oil stains).......
If so, consider putting an inexpensive epoxy primer / sealer (such as ESP 155 - an Internet Favorite epoxy coating - not for sale in California) on the entire floor or over those potential trouble spots. Then wait a few weeks or months and see what happens. If everything looks great it is very likely that a 'fancy' epoxy top coat will be successful and probably issue free. You might even decide to just keep the sealed floor and skip the thicker mostly decorative (or at least thicker and pigmented) epoxy top coat (such as 0% VOC INDUSTRIAL FLOOR EPOXY).
If problems developed with the thin, nearly clear ESP 155 epoxy sealer, it is not that big a deal. No worse than having some deck/porch enamel paint lift and peel. You won't trip over it, it is not so 'in your face', and you saved big $$$ that you would have spent on the epoxy, paint chip, top coat. Some existing concrete surfaces are just not good candidates for an epoxy coating. QUESTIONS? email OR call 603 435 7199. Floor Links Page. Learn all about epoxy floors.

2) INEXPENSIVE EPOXY FLOOR
After you have sealed the concrete with ESP 155 you will have a clear glossy (looks like a water spill) very thin coat of epoxy on the surface. It will probably not be thick epoxy to level and fill chips other flaws, but it will be a waterproof layer of chemical resistant epoxy. If this was your objective you could stop here and optionally paint the ESP 155 with enamel or latex paint for looks only, or leave it plain. Since a half gal kit of ESP 155 covers about 150 square feet this is a way to get a relatively inexpensive, high quality (but not so pretty) epoxy floor.

3) FIBERGLASS PRIMER (especially boat hulls)
old and weathered fiberglass is not a good surface to simply paint over. This is especially true when working on old fiberglass boat bottoms. Often old boat bottoms are sand blasted back down to the old fiberglass. The blasting itself introduces microscopic chips and cracks. Blasting or sanding imbeds sanding/blasting dust into the old fiberglass surface. A coat of ESP 155 will seal any micro factures, seal any weathered fiberglass dust and provide a fresh, clean new bonding surface for your paint or marine barrier coat epoxy.

4) WOOD SEALER AND ROT PREVENTER
ESP 155 is used on new or fresh wood surfaces to prevent future rot. Customers use it on outside window sills and frames. I have used it on replacement wood siding. After using this epoxy it is paint over. I have commercial customers that use it on wood before paint to get a smoother and more durable paint finish. See picture above. More on ROT.

5) UNDER VARNISH FOR LONGER LIVE
Epoxy under old fashion marine varnish is a win-win combination. The epoxy sealer stablizes the wood surface and the varnish provides needed UV protection. The varnish can also be waxed to a mirror like finish. Many folks think they want a poured epoxy table top or bar top, but really would be better off with a thin coat of epoxy like ESP 155 with a top coat of our marine spar varnish (varnish not for sale in California). See cart picture example at top of this page site.

Our ESP 155 ™ is a solvent thinned epoxy, classified as a ‘waterproofing' coating and has a VOC level of 239 g/l. This is a legally acceptable level of solvents for a waterproof coating except in parts of southern California, where this product cannot be sold or used.

The more I work with this product, the more I am impressed with it, hence the reason behind this page.
The product is a clear watery thin epoxy with a simple 1 to 1 mix ratio. It is sold in two one quart cans. It was originally designed for use on concrete to seal the product the cement. It was/is then often top coated with some other coating. Because it is a thin coating, it can often fill or seal small voids or holes near the surface of the concrete that can expel air resulting in bubbles and creators in thicker top coatings (such as thick epoxies).
Use for ESP 155 is to pre-coat wood surfaces prior to painting with latex or enamels. Wood expands or contracts with moisture levels, where as other materials, including paints, expand and contract with temperature. This means that wood and the coating on it can be working against each other, resulting in a coating failure. In my experience this is more of a problem with wood that has already been ‘weathered' outdoors. These wood surfaces probably already have a lot of internally trapped moisture.
Besides effecting how wood expands or contracts, moisture in wood also affects the adhesion of many coatings. Most paints and coatings (including a majority of epoxies) don't bond well to wet, damp or moist surfaces - including wood with a high internal moisture level.
Often used as a primer and sealer on old, weak, concrete floors and sun damaged fiberglass boat hulls (often before the application of a marine epoxy barrier coat, bottom paint, or 2 part poly hull paint.

The product also uses a very high end cycloaliphatic epoxy - instead of the very low end epoxies found in other solvent thinned epoxies of this kind.
One trick with the ESP 155 is to use some of our pigments (or some other pigment) to shade the ESP 155 slightly. It is easier to see how evenly you're applying it when it has some color instead of being clear. Also, if you are going to paint the surface, let's say white, tinting the ESP 155 white may mean you can skip that second or third coat of white paint.
If you cannot use the ESP 155 (say, you live in southern California), then your alternative option is our Low V™ epoxy. The Low V epoxy is solvent free so it can be sold anywhere. It is thicker than the solvent thinned ESP 155 so it would not, in theory, seep into the wood or cement as well as the ESP 155. The Low V does bond and harden underwater, like the ESP 155. In confined spaces, such as in a boat hull blister, you would not want to use a solvent thinned coating, because the solvents have no place to evaporate away to.
Why ESP 155 epoxy sealer and primer is the BEST in its class:
1) Uses superior CYCLOALIPHATIC curing agents and epoxy ADDUCT formulation
2) solvent based for better penetration
3) moisture tolerant, very low viscosity
4) strong user support / feedback
5) 24/7 support
