Epiglass

I am taking the paint right off my keel - right back to the bare cast iron. To protect the cast iron I want to put some kind of epoxy on before International Primocon, then antifouling.
Is International Epiglass suitable for this, or if not, what is suitable?
Thanks,
Pete

I would have thought VC Tar Epoxy would be more suitable Pete. I have used it on my keel. I still get little rust spots where the coating has not been adequate, but I did not do the original job (excuses, excuses) and found it difficult to get the keel completely clean of antifouling as the casting is a bit rough.
