New Paint on Interior Walls

Need some help on interior wall paint. I cleaned and primed my walls three weeks ago used Zinsser Bondz Maximum Adhesion Primer and let dry for a week. Purchased Sherwin Williams Ovation exterior latex paint after talking to their representative and explaining what I was needing. He advised this would be ideal. After two weeks I was marking my wall with a pencil to start my walls and the paint peeled off in chunks. Has anyone ran into this problem. Still waiting on Sherwin Williams to call back to see what is causing this. Any help would be appreciated, feel like I wasted about 160.00 worth of material. At least I won't have to strip the paint, it peels nice.

On our 1974 Argosy I cleaned all surfaces with bleach water, lightly sanded walls (very lightly to ensure bonding) then rinsed with a water borax mix (borax removes any grit, mold, chemicals, etc. to help adhesion). Then I primed with Sherwin Williams best interior primer & then painted with Sherwin William,s best interior paint. Your paint brush may become sticky or gooey during this process & if so this is the the plastic coating that is on the interior aluminum releasing. Have several brushes & paint with non-stickey brushes. This was several years ago & paint is perfect.

Sounds like your primer did not bond to the surface. Does it look like both primer & paint have peeled? Sanding & cleaning original surface a must for adhesion.

Thanks
Jane

What peeled, the paint or the primer?

The interior of an old trailer is going to be coated with "stuff"...

Like cooking grease, and cigarette smoke.

This stuff has to be cleaned off really, really well with a strong detergent AND a solvent based cleaner.

Also, primer should not be allowed to fully cure before top coating. If it is fully cured it needs to be sanded to promote adhesion.

Thirdly latex is a poor choice IMHO, an oil base paint like Rustolium is a better choice.

The issue that caused your failure is going to be best identified by your point of failure.


Brevi tempore!

Interior paint

We used the primer that Minno used and the top coat was what Sherwin Williams recommended, exterior paint due to the temp changes on an Airstream. The primer has to be sanded off since putting it on, bonds great. The first top coat stuck great but the second is what is causing my problem. Sherwin Williams asked me to run a heater and a fan to regulate the temp and minimize humidity to see if it cures. The sheet that goes on the top center has been good so far but it is in the garage temp regulated. Will check after second coat. Will call them back on Monday with the results. Thanks for the input on this problem.

So, those of you who have painted your interior walls recommend painting when the air outside is not moist (or only with low humidity)? And, would you use oil based paints for the best adhesion?

I would use nothing less than a good oil base paint, Rustoleum would be my bottom tier paint, DuPont Imron 3500 HG would be my top tier choice.

An activated paint properly applied inside a trailer would be a lifetime paint job.

I scrubbed my walls with Clorox Clean Up then painted with this. 1.5 years later the only place it is showing any wear is on the wardrobe door where it's been nicked a time or two. Adhered perfectly on the walls. Purchased at Ace Hardware based on the salespersons recommendation for the application.Click image for larger version

Acrylic?

I googled your product, and it looks to be acrylic. Several people recommended oil based enamel. I hate the thought of using oil for the cleanup mostly. Did you paint the plastic end shells? Ours looks to be a browned sort of tan color. I'm wondering if the paint would adhere to this as well as the walls.

Has anyone painted this plastic curved ceiling? Did the paint adhere well to it?

many people on this site use BIN primer. can be found everywhere. it s a little expensive but it s stick to everything and will never peel.

https://www.homedepot.ca/en/home/p.z...000123343.html

1 gallon was enough for 1.5 coat of my argosy 24 interior. I tested, try to sctach it off etc...it s on there very solid. it s was worth the price.

you can then use any paint on top of it...oil or water based.

I used Krylon Fusion for Plastic on every hard plastic surface including the end caps and the tambour doors with 100% success.

That is strictly a spray paint, correct? We are about to begin our restoration of our new to us '79 31' Sovereign. Thanks for all the helpful tips. My vision is to paint all of our walls a very light gray (almost white) and the cabinets all white.
