Painting electrical pvc


installed some electrical PVC in the basement finished room I am trying to paint it the same color as the room sort of light tan... so far 3 coats and can still see the writing on the PVC. I am thinking I should have removed the writing somehow before starting.. please advise a Little late.

Give the pvc a suff sanding and wipe it down. We have painted pvc interior and exterior numorous times using two coats of a quality acrylic latex paint. Usually two coats of a quality paint will cover. What kind of paint are you using?

That could be your problem right there. I recently painted my exterior pvc service conduit. I started with a thorough sanding, then went with Rustoleum plastic primer in the spray can, let it set up for week, then hit it with two coats of S/W finish paint. It turned of very well - feels like a factory finish.

I would say the Behr paint is the problem. I've painted lots of ovc always using Sherwin Williams products and two coats always covered it well
