What Kind of Paint Will Stick to Plastic?

Answer

Paints specific for painting plastics will work the best for painting plastic. This includes Fusion for Plastic by Krylon, Valpar Plastic paint, or Rust-Oleum specialty paint for plastic. Check with the back of the can or the company web site whether you need to sand or primer paint the item before painting with the final color. Newer paints only need a clean surface. Also be sure that what you want to paint can be painted. Shower stalls, bathtubs, counter tops and flooring should not be painted.

Most types of paint will stick to a plastic surface, after the proper preparation steps are performed. Unlike the surfaces of wood, plastic is slick and nonporous, making it ill-suited for paint adhesion. Without the proper preparation, plastic sheds its painted finish relatively fast after application. Like vinyl and fibreglass, plastic must be conditioned to accept paint through abrasion. An example of a paint that will stick to plastic is Krylon Fusion or Duplicolour. Plastikote, which is more of a dye, is also a paint that will stick to plastic.

The acrylic latex paints are appropriate for malleable plastic surfaces, because they provide elasticity and won't crack or chip as the plastic bends.
