CV on flex molding10/12/15
I have a job with an inside radius crown molding that I need to paint. It is a resin flex molding. I was hoping to use the same pigmented conversion varnish that I am using for the rest of the job. Has anyone had success with this? My supplier said that it is not made to bond to plastic.
I've stained and cleared flex molding with a pre cat and had no issues with it. Pretty sure the same would work with a post cat.
Thanks Leo. I guess I'll test it on a scrap and see if it sticks.
why not have a latex matched correctly and reduce/spray.... id sure hate to go back and redo everything after it all shrank down and cracked /peels off
On a side note... Sherwin Williams does make a special waterbased bonding primer for plastics that you can use waterbased or solvent coatings over after it properly cures from their product finishes division... not the retail house paint stores...
Just go to your automotive paint store and have some paint for plastic bumpers and car parts matched to the color you are using.
Thanks for the responses guys. I was hoping to be able to use the same product for everything. I have used different products in the past and they aged differently and looked bad. I did a test and it seems to be sticking. I have some time to let it cure before it has to be applied so I can see how it holds up. I'll look into the primer you mentioned Shane. When I spoke with someone at the local commercial coating division they said they didn't have anything like that. You don't happen to have a product number do you?
