Trusscore Painting Guidelines

Trusscore Wall&CeilingBoard panels come in a smooth, clean finish that is scratch, dent, and damage resistant, which means they should never require painting like traditional drywall.
 However, we understand that sometimes people want a change and will decide to paint their Wall&CeilingBoard to update or refresh their room’s look. Here is some information to keep in mind should you choose to paint your Trusscore Wall&CeilingBoard panels.

Recommended Paints

There are a variety of paints and primers designed for use with PVC; however, we recommend using paints that are 100% acrylic latex or acrylic latex with urethane additive and where possible using primer and paint combined paints or self-priming paints.   

Here are some common paints that are suitable for your project and are readily available:

Surface Preparation

To ensure optimal paint adhesion, be sure the Trusscore Wall&CeilingBoard surface is clean, dry, free of dirt and any other surface contaminants before applying paint. Apply the paint per manufacturer’s recommendations. Sanding Trusscore Wall&CeilingBoard prior to applying primer or paint is not advised or required.

We recommend consulting your local paint specialist before starting your project to find the product best suited to your wall or ceiling and before making your final color choice we recommend you view an actual paint sample or color swatch in person.
