Painting Melamine Kickplate


There is new shoe mould throughout the interior over engineered floor.
Normally I don't touch melamine, since the finish can release.

On a kick-plate below the base cabinets. Applying Duration semi.

What primer might serve best? What about S.W. extreme bonding primer?
(already have)

I'm an old guy. If you had asked me this question in the 70's I would have told you to use B-I-N primer. Maybe the young guys will have a different answer.

Insl-X Stix. Don’t rush the top coat. Give the primer time to do its thing.

Re: Painting Melamine Kickplate


I tried using Stix on the bottom of a factory built cabinet. I'm not sure if the covering on those is some kind of plastic or what, but it fished-eyed so bad that I washed it off with a sponge and didn't paint it. Maybe if I had sanded it first...
