EPODEX Plastic Paint
Plastic paint is a special paint for colouring furniture or other surfaces made of plastic. However, pure dispersion paint does not adhere permanently to plastic, which is why the paint used is actually varnish. With EPODEX ACRYLIC PROTECT plastic varnish, you can get the perfect paint for your project – in colourless or colour to suit your taste.
Advantages and Fields of Application
Plastic is a flexible, durable material that can be recycled again and again if it is recycled properly. To protect or colour plastic surfaces effectively and permanently, choose EPODEX ACRYLIC PROTECT, our low-odour and durable acrylic varnish. This plastic paint is free of aggressive solvents that can attack the material. In addition, the paint does not evaporate, neither during nor after processing. Our customers like to use this material for garden furniture and other plastic surfaces indoors and outdoors.
Another special feature is that it is also suitable for lacquer-on-lacquer contact points. These can be found, for example, in the locking mechanism of windows or doors. A lacquer that is too soft and flexible would be unsuitable for this application. Our silky-glossy, water-based acrylic lacquer can be coloured in the colour of your choice and easily applied.
Painting with Plastic Paint
Painting with plastic vanish is simple and easy to do, even for beginners. Start by thoroughly cleaning the plastic surface. It must be free of grease and dirt. Areas that are not to be painted must be masked off and covered. Roughen the surface with sandpaper or a suitable electric sander. Then, if necessary, apply a plastic primer as an adhesion promoter to obtain an even result.
Now mix EPODEX ACRYLIC PROTECT. Apply a first thin coat with a brush or foam roller.
Allow the varnish to dry and repeat the process until the desired opacity is achieved. On light surfaces, you usually need fewer coats than on dark surfaces. The last coat should dry completely before you load the surfaces as usual and expose them to the weather.
