Yes, I've tried their Tie Coat primer. It's good for most paints, but it 
still requires auto-based primers to get a really good result with it. What I mean 
by this is, you have to use an automotive based primer over it, if you want 
use good auto paint. I've had a problem with lifting, in that epoxy primer will 
craze if tie coat is under it (like laquer does with some age, and a lot of 
sun). I've found that if I let the POR 15 coat dry for an hour and a half, then 
spray my epoxy (PPG's DP series) over it, then it it will bite in, and I 
don't need the tie coat. : ) I can now use regular auto paint (K-36, and Deltron). 
:D My thinking is that it's an extra step that just costs money. But if 
you're paint lawn equipment (like a wheelbarrow, or a shovel), then you might be 
better off with the tie coat (using a spray bomb after it). I hope this helps.
