Source for Epoxy Paint

While in Benjamin Moore retailer today I noticed that BM is now carrying an epoxy paint that should work quite well on the ABS bathroom fixtures. Dealer stated that the epoxy paint could be tinted to any of their colors. I had been looking all over for a red epoxy paint with no luck. BM has it.

Is it "two part" or "one part"? I too saw something like it a year or so ago... It was one part! One part will not work on ABS (I think you mean thermal plastic) it will rub off! I use Auto Bumper Paint (made by 3M)!! It works very well, and can be mixed to any color (yes red)!

As far as I know it is two paint. There are two parts that need to be mixed. Hope that helps!

Not sure if you already got it and tried it or not? How did it work?

We used a product called Tile Doc (XIM) from Sherman Williams that is made for bathroom as well and is a 2 part epoxy (50%/50% mix). We used a cheap auto sprayer that came with our compressor and it went on great and is solidly adhering to the plastic, looks like porceline only flexible. It dries fast with light coats and took about 4-5 coats to cover really good. It comes in white but says it came be colored (at the store maybe?). We wanted white though so didn't color it. The bugs love it so if you have an indoor area to spray it... Below are some shots of the finished product. We haven't put them back in the camper and tested longevity yet but I have twisted the shower basin and it flexes and seems to be well adhered:

I bought the same stuff (Tile Doc) from Sherman Williams and am planning to use it when I paint my bathroom sink and other plastic areas in the bathroom of my safari.

I have a question on the prep necessary before I paint. What did you use to clean the plastic?

Thanks!

We cleaned the plastic using Marine Clean from POR15, then sanded with 220 sandpaper, then blew off the dust with compressor, then wiped it down with Xylene (recommended for TileDoc). After that, used a cheap sprayer to spray on the paint. The first coat, I put it on too thick and it ran in some places so I had to wipe it off and try again. Also, make sure all soap residue is sanded/cleaned off well or the epoxy won't stick and will bead around it. I had a spot in the sink basin I had to sand a second time to get it off.
