Painting PVC trim


I'm finishing up a bathroom remodel and was going to put PVC trim around the ceiling but I'm not crazy about the white color. Will PVC trim take paint without peeling? Especially in a humid bathroom?

Any special prep or paint that would make a difference?

I would scuff it with some sandpaper if it's glossy, then apply a coat of BIN pigmented shellac. That'll bond, then finish as you like.

I would scuff it up too but I would use a primer especially for plastics or even a color of plastic paint if you find one close to what you want. Krylon Fusion comes as a primer and in a myriad of colors and is just for plastic. I think it only comes in spray form. I have used it on outdoor resin and PVC furniture---even a kids play set and it holds up well. Rustoleum makes a plastic primer in liquid and spray form and I have reasonable luck with it too. You can top coat it with whatever you want. Melamine would be my last suggestion but you will probably get nailed for a gallon and it is pricey.

Scuff it. Apply a quality bonding primer, and paint with a quality 100% acrylic latex. My choice would be SW Bonding primer and SW Pro classic Satin or Duration Satin. They will both last a long time in a bathroom environment
