    how long should I let epoxy primer cure before applying my filler? should I use the tech sheet time recommendation they give for topcoating as a cure time before filler?

    well, since there's no clear consensus and my tech sheets don't say anything about it, does anyone have experience spraying nason ful-poxy and applying filler? approx. cure time?

    Looks like over night.I sprayed a fairly heavy coat of epoxy. I wasn't worried about runs or OP just wanted to get it on. Usually theirs a 36 to 48 hr maybe longer window for good chemical adhesion, so you want to start applying the filler soon. I pretty much sanded a lot of the epoxy off from the outter edges of the filler, don't really have a choice about that, but I knew that I was going to spray another coat anyhow. I did spot in epoxy over the finished filler cause it will soak into the filler.

    if the spec sheet does not help, I would call the tech support line and ask.
