Title: painting PVC line hide
Post by: porch painter on May 08, 2019, 09:28:16 PM
Mini-splits are nearly installed and have a white line hide cover over the piping. https://www.ecomfort.com/cooling/mitsubishi-line-hide-line-set-covers.html (https://www.ecomfort.com/cooling/mitsubishi-line-hide-line-set-covers.html).  This stuff is "Line-Hide components are constructed from weather-resistant PVC that has been treated with UV inhibitors"...and very smooth and shiny.  Part of  the line will get baked in direct sunlight for 7 hours a day.   

I was thinking I need to sand (220-300) and go with a high end exterior latex.  But is a primer is needed?  I've read about acetone on PVC to prime it, but am not sure.   Any recommendations on any part of the job..from methods to brand of paint I'll take.  You all are gods and perusing this forum has helped me many times! 

PS. I searched for PVC and got NOTHING.
