A Trick for Priming PVC

Sherwin Williams makes an exterior/interior bonding primer that I used the other day at mpaint_template-1y own home in Laytonsville, Maryland to prime PVC. Being a very slick surface, PVC can be tricky to paint and have last a long time without peeling. As I was working with the Sherwin Williams bonding primer, I got a little on my hands. What a time I had trying to wash it off my hands after I had completed the work. Good thing I didn’t have the primer on my hands all day or it would have never come off! One thing this taught me is that this product is a superior bonding primer and since then I’ve used that same product at O’Connor’s Painting Service to not only prime PVC boards but also aluminum siding and any other slick surfaces.

    Couple questions – would you use this to prime stained cabinets? What grit sandpaper do you use to sand cabinets?
    Any tips for glazing?
