    Hi all, I've got about 12" of black plastic soil pipe in my shower room that I want to paint white. It's not an option to box it in.

    What's the best combination of undercoat/top coat to use so that it doesn't end up peeling or cracking?

    Dulux do a "Difficult Surfaces" primer which is designed for use on uPVC - I used it on an external plastic soil pipe 2 years ago and haven't had a problem.

    hope this helps

    Thanks for that. What top coat did you use?

    Ordinarly, 1 coat of gloss, thined 10% followed by 1 or 2 coats of gloss, this is the 'normal' finishing for new 'un painted' plastic pipes.
    An alternative would be to use Dulux super grip primer, followed by the usual finishing system.

    Hope that this is of some use? or explains things a little?
