Honestly, if you have got the primer and its in front of you and you can't figure out on your own how to mix it or you didn't obtain the info beforehand, your way ahead of yourself. Options, see if its printed on the can,ask who you got it from, reference the tech manual for the product, call a paint rep/ company for the product, ect. Mix it w/ the hardener as directed, strain it into the gun through a filter.

Not all paint paint companies print the mixing ratio on the can or hardener.

for 90% of the primer out there, its a 4-2-1 ratio.

4 parts primer, 2 parts medium reducer, 1 part hardener. However, like stated before, its always best to ask someone who has DIRECT experience with that particular product, and what reducers and hardeners should be used with it.

Think DuPont's primer used to be 4-1-1.5, but they released a new line, think it's all 4-1 now. Gonna have to read the directions, or look it up somehow.

Usually a reducer for a sealer primer, reducer & hardner for a filler primer. But it really all depends on the company/product.

PPG global is 4:1, but like everyone else said where ever you buy the materials ask them for the information.
