Polyrattan is normally polyethylene or polypropylene. The spray isn’t suitable for use on this type of surface. The plastic’s surface properties don’t allow adequate binding, meaning that the paint won’t adhere to the surface. In contrast, other (rigid) plastics can be painted with edding permanent spray. These include: polyurethane (PUR), polystyrene (PS), polyamide (PA), rubber-modified polypropylene (PP-EPDM), acrylonitrile butadiene styrene plastic (ABS), fibreglass-reinforced plastic (FRP), rigid polyvinyl chloride (rigid PVC), polyester (PES) and polyethylene terephthalate (PET). When painting plastic, we strongly recommend priming with the edding permanent spray plastic primer. This forms a paintable barrier between the plastic substrate and the subsequent layer of paint. The edding permanent spray plastic primer is the perfect bonding agent for the subsequent coat of edding permanent spray acrylic paint. Before you start painting on plastic, test the paint out on an inconspicuous area first to determine whether the paint is compatible with the base material.
