How Do You Paint uPVC Properly?
We make sure we stir the uPVC paint very well and that it isnt too thick, we can also strain the uPVC Paint which will prevent against possible clogging in a spray gun tip or in any of spray gun filters.
When actually using a spray gun we keep the spray gun moving in slow, long and straight strokes and stay a similar distance away from the frames being sprayed. Our specialist spray technicians will apply a smooth even coat. It is best practice to Overlap each stroke or pass of the spray gun with half the width of the sprayed area coverage to ensure against leaving stripes or and lighter areas.
We always recommend starting painting from the corners and spraying any protrusions first. After that, we will move to the larger flat areas. After we have sprayed each area of uPVC, the spray specialist will take a look for any blemishes or spots in the finish. If there are any we will recover to remove them. We would normally cover with 3 coats for most uPVC windows, doors, conservatories, gutters, fascias, and soffits. This will give plenty of time to cover any imperfections and guarantee complete coverage so we have a clean finish.
