What paint can I use on uPVC?
To paint UPVC properly you need to use a solvent-based paint that’s formulated for hard plastics. You cannot use acrylic or oil-based paints because they do not bond with UPVC — they merely ‘stick’ to it and wear off.
Can I paint my uPVC frames?
uPVC is not designed to accept a paint or varnish to its surface and the main challenge is for the paint used to gain adhesion to the surface and to bind with it. Apart from adhering to the surface of the uPVC, a paint has to cope with thermal expansion as the door (or window) expands and contracts through the seasons.
How long does UPVC paint last?
When we spray paint UPVC, we stamp the work with a 10-year guarantee which is a guarantee the paint will not fade, discolour, peel or flake in that time. So, the short answer to the question of how long UPVC paint colour lasts for is 10-years – and that’s the minimum.
