We painted our 1965 Caravel zolatone walls with a Benjamin Moore Metal and Wood Enamel paint, pricey, but what a great paint. No problems what so ever and going on 3 years. Never try-ed it on wood however, but worth a try

Zolatone is different than vinyl-clad aluminum.

One can simply wash zolatone well and expect a top layer of paint to last a long time. Off-gassing does not apply to zolatone.

Guilty as charged, I used water based Kilz.
I assume that you can't switch now to the oil based. Or can you? And would that help?

Hello... been there and done that... we washed and rinsed our vinyl clad walls last summer and primed with Kiltz... and painted... everything was great until March ... we were in Canada for the winter and did not have the Argosy ready to go south for the winter... the inside was peeling... well we should have sanded but did not.... we scrapped all the paint and primer off and are in the process of sanding and will NOT use Kilz again.. using a Sherwin Williams bonding primer...

For anyone in the same boat as I am, you can indeed put oil based product over the water based, per the Kilz phone in tech line.

Personally I would remove all of the existing primer, do what you can if anything to remove any stickiness. Re-prime with a primer made specifically for vinyl or plastic, such as Chromatic vinyl primer #5004 made by Spraylat sign coatings. Contact your local sign shop, they can buy it from there sign supplier and sell it to you. Once that primer is on you can use just about any paint you want for a top coat.

Later - Derek

Smile I think I've got it!

I did a section of the unit with the oil based Kilz and what a difference! Just comparing the surface that I had just re-scrubbed and repainted this week with the water based Kilz, and the section done with the oil base Kilz you can immediately feel the difference.

The new section is perfectly dry and no tackiness at all, and the other part is showing the usual slight stickiness.
Yippee! I think I've finally gotten it right!

Please keep us informed of your progress. Painting my nasty interior skins is just down the road as soon as I get them removed. I planned on priming them with Kilz while I have them out and I was sure disappointed in your first results.

I stock and sell four different types of Kilz and was undecided which to use. I know that sounds bad for someone "in the business" but no one knows everything. Sounds like I better stick with the old fashion oil base Kilz.
