Caulks/Sealants

Palram has partnered with OSI® and Color Rite® to offer tinted caulk/sealant that exactly matches our Palight Trimboard Sand and Clay colors. These sealants contain no silicone, so they are ideal for use with foam PVC like Palight Trimboard.

OSI and Color Rite caulks are available through lumber yards and building products dealers. Sizes range from 5.5 ounce tubes to 10 ounce cartridges. Some dealers may have them in stock; others may require a special order (often with a minimum order of a case of 12.)

IMPORTANT PAINTING GUIDELINES

Palight Trimboard does not require paint for protection, but it can be painted with acrylic-latex paints that are specifically formulated for use on PVC or vinyl.

PAINTING PALIGHT TRIMBOARD – GENERAL INFO

Moisture cycling is a main reason for paint failure on wood. Because Palight Trimboard absorbs no moisture, paints last 4 to 5 times longer on Palight than on wood. However, paint can take as long as 30 days to fully cure, depending on outdoor temperatures and humidity.

PREPARING THE SURFACE FOR PAINTING

No special surface preparations are required prior to painting. However, fine dust can collect on the surface of any PVC trimboard due to static. To ensure a dust-free surface that will promote good paint adhesion, leave the EverClean™ Protective Film in place and remove just prior to painting.

If the EverClean Protective Film has already been removed, then prior to painting, wipe trimboards with a rag moistened with isopropyl alcohol, or mild detergent and water.

USE VINYL-SAFE PAINTS WITH LRV OF 55 OR HIGHER

PVC trimboard can become damaged as a result of excessive heat absorption. Using the wrong paint can cause heat absorption beyond the specification of any PVC trimboard.

This is why it’s very important to use either:

  • Standard latex paints with a Light Reflectance Value (LRV*) of 55 or higher

— OR —

  • A latex paint that is specifically designated as “safe for vinyl siding.” Sherwin-Williams has its VinylSafe™ paint line. PPG has its SidingSafe™ paint line. Both perform well on Palight PVC Trimboard.

* LRV is a measure of the lightness of an object, and ranges from 0 (black) to 100 (white). Paints with an LRV of less than 55 will absorb more heat, and can lead to damage or warping of any PVC trimboard product, including Palight Trimboard. Always tell your paint provider ahead of time that you want paint that is safe for PVC/vinyl.

Palram is not liable for paint used on Palight Trimboard and/or the results of its use.
