Good evening, I've been in this section a couple times so pardon me. My plan was to cover the vinyl asbestos tile with another type of flooring but due to finances I am restricted from doing that. The cheapest solution I have thought of is to paint over the VAT. Just either stencil or design. Would it be acceptable to do this? It is a temp solution.
Oil based primer, then oil/latex paint, then seal? I don't see any issue other than it being an undesirable solution.
Make sure you use a paint specifically designed to handle wear and tear from foot traffic. Vinyl is smooth, so it's not exactly a great surface for paint to adhere to, and some manufacturers recommend you sand the surface for better adhesion, but that's exactly what you want to avoid so hopefully a primer will do the trick. I agree with an oil based primer and paint. Do you have an inconspicuous spot you can test?
