A common question arises when painting a skirting board: how to paint it correctly so that the coating does not peel off afterwards?. This can occur due to process flow disruptions.
In most cases, the skirting board for further painting has a smooth non-absorbing surface, for example, MDF skirting board or foamed PVC skirting board, which is known to be a challenging condition for painting.
For better paint-to-surface adhesion and in order to prevent its subsequent detachment, there are special compounds used – primers. They allow for creating an abrasive layer, which is perfect for the paint to lay upon and maintain a good cohesion for the entire service life.
However, not every primer is suitable for the skirting board. Now, how to choose the right compound out of the entire diversity presented in the contemporary store? Grace Company offers a new product: a specially developed primer Profiles Primer that is suitable for all types of skirting boards and profiles (MDF, PVC foam, foliated polymer and polystyrene).
Profiles Primer can be combined with any type of paint, but we recommend painting the skirting board with water-based acrylic paints designed specifically for indoor works. Such paints, like the primer itself, do not emit any harmful substances in the course of painting and drying, and you don't need to worry about your family and relatives.
In order to obtain a high-quality result, you must adhere to the correct algorithm for primer application:
When preparing the surface, it is recommended to clean it from dust and dirt and make sure to process it with grinding felt or the finest grit sandpaper until roughness appears.
(This is a mandatory procedure almost for all types of paint).
It is recommended to install floor skirting boards AFTER they are painted, otherwise you will have to protect the floor and walls from splashing.
