PVC Paint?

Postby Chowder Head » Tue Mar 13, 2012 4:14 am

Was wondering if anyone has tried this stuff. I would like to paint my in-tank PVC before assembling. It is water resistant after curing for 24 hours, supposed to be chip proof if curing for 7 days. Anyone have any experience with this?

Yes that will work. I've used it numerous times. Just let it cure for a day or a week if you want it to be chip resistant.

Yes it will work fine! I am using a very similar product and my spraybar has been submerged for over a month with no REAL flaking. I tried to scrub some of the algae off with stiff brush and the paint came off, but that is reasonable. The paint stays on for a while and looks good!
