What do you use to get rid of the primer dust after sanding? I thought I could wipe it down with naptha like I did after the sand sealer, but the naphtha took off the primer. Using all reranch products.

I use Surgical Blue tack clothes. I know lot of people don't like tack clothes, but these don't leave any residue behind and are really sticky.

I use naphtha. Maybe the primer wasn't dry yet? I've never had a problem with it coming off..

I have had issues with other primers and naptha, but no RR stuff.

Yep! Duplicolor sandals primer is an otherwise example of a good primer that wipes off with naphtha.

Thanks for reminding me I need more RR primer!

The only reason I would use naphtha, acetone, or denatured alcohol would be to remove grease, oil, silicone, oxidation and such.
I just hit it with an airgun, or vacuum the dust off, no need for anything else.

Yeah, naptha will wipe off acrylic lacquer ( put it back in solution), such as Duplicolor sandable primer. BUT I still use their primer all the time for different projects. I use naptha wipe but the rag is closer to dry and not
wet. A blow of air will usually suffice in most cases

FYI - I ordered a few cans that afternoon. Had pre-shipment info within an hour. The goods are out for delivery today. Same great service as always. I don't get why some complain, I've never had a problem.

I blow it with an air gun while wiping with my freshly washed hands.
