Latex primer not sticking to copper


I am spraying my basement ceiling with an airless sprayer. I bought an all purpose latex primer and it worked great except on a copper water line. I roughed up with sand paper but the paint flows off of it eventually. Do I need to get something else to prime the copper pipe?

There are many primers better for metal then an all purpose. KEM bond is my favorite.
