Laminated scaffold boards – first step to paint laminate board is clean table with dish detergent, water and a rag. Laminated boards clean easily for quick cleaning before painting. Dry the worktop with a clean towel, or let it dry in the air. Place the table on a plastic sheet and stick painter’s tape to the edges of the table. No matter how careful you are, paint drops can roll down the edges of the board.
Prime laminated board with primer adhesive. This is the most important part of painting the laminate surfaces, as the bonding primer is specially formulated to improve adhesion and durability on slippery surfaces such as laminated scaffold boards, glass and ceramics. Apply the primer, using a medium hair roller in parallel lines. Allows overlap of 50 percent between each line of rollers for good coverage. Wait 24 hours for the primer to heal completely.
Paint the surface of laminated scaffold boards, with high gloss oil-based paint and a foam roller. High gloss finishes are ideal for table tops because they are very durable and easy to clean. High gloss finishes, however, tend to show siesta roller marks if you do not use a foam roller. Then, allow the base coat to dry for two hours. Apply a second coat if necessary. Remove painter’s tape in 24 hours, but do not start using the painted table surface for 48 hours.
