TotalBoat Wet Edge Topside Paint : will it stick to most plastics?

4 posts in this topic

I had a bit of Topside paint drip on to various boat surfaces including a rubber rub-rail, aluminum trim, wood, and plastic window - it adhered to all those surfaces and I had to use a paint stripper to remove the unwanted paint. I think fiberglass/gelcoat are a type of plastic. Best guess - yes, it will stick to plastic and most other materials.D

NO. If you rough up the surface some it may stick a little better, but will still chip and peal, best to use paint specificly for plastic. Can be had at most home improvment stores.

Hello:I sprayed the paint onto my boats fiberglass topsides that I had sanded and primed. Great adhesion and finish.I did not paint any plastic items so I can't tell you how well it will adhere to plastic.

I have never used Wet Edge paint without first using Total Boat Primer. If the primer sticks to whatever material you are painting, Wet Edge will certainly stick to the primer.
