Painting Interior uPVC Cladding Used for Covering Ceiling

Postby ash » Wed Jan 29, 2020 11:16 am


I want to clad a scruffy bedroom ceiling using "uPVC hollow board for soffit and interior cladding". I'm using this because it's lightweight and cheaper than wood paneling.
It's the usual white colour, but I want to paint it (probably a cream colour), so it looks more like wood cladding and less like a bathroom ceiling.
I've seen lots of posts on this forum about painting old uPVC, but nothing that relates to (1) interior projects that are out of the sun and (2) brand new uPVC.
(Also, I don't know if this makes a different to what will and will not bond, but the uPVC I've chosen is not designed to be used as external cladding, where it will be exposed to the sun.)
Can I simply slap on some emulsion? Do I need primer? Should I sand it first?... Any advice will be gratefully received.
Many thanks!
