Q:Will this work on corrugated polypropylene (coroplast) that will be exposed to weather for 10 weeks in winter?
by|Jan 14, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Happy to help! While most polypropylene plastic can be painted, we do recommend applying Rust-Oleum Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Water-Based Primer in a test area first to ensure full adhesion. Since this is a primer, we do recommend applying an opaque topcoat over it as soon as possible to ensure longevity and full adhesion of the coating. Since this is a primer, it is more porous than paint and can hold on to dirt and dust more. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

    Answer This Question

    A:  We appreciate your interest, Melva! Since this is a water-based primer, we do not recommend Rust-Oleum Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Water-Based Primer for use over wallpaper. The primer may reactivate the adhesive. We do recommend removing any wallpaper when possible whenever planning on painting over wallpaper or wanting to apply new wallpaper. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3
