krylon Fusion Paint

Paint Selection.
Expanded PVC is available in a variety of colors. The problem is that the colors fade when exposed to sunlight.  For this reason, colored sheet is only recommended for indoor use and limited use outdoors.  So if you want   a durable color that will last outside, you will have to paint it or screen print it.
One brand of paint that is popular among sign makers is Krylon Fusion Paint.  This paint is designed specifically for plastics. Not only will it stick to PVC, it is also available in a variety of colors. Best of all, it comes in an aerosol can.
When painting on an expanded PVC sheet, such as Sintra or Komacel, you should test the paint system on a scrap piece of material for good adhesion and compatibility.  Many paints, such as latex and enamels, do not adhere well to expanded PVC.  In some cases, you can improve the adhesion to the substrate by first priming it. Some of the paint systems that stick well to expanded PVC are polyurethanes and lacquers. Vinyl screen print inks, such as the Nazdar inks listed above, also adhere well.
