DiversiTech recommends any 100% acrylic latex or 100% acrylic latex with a urethane additive when painting SpeediChannel products. The reason for this recommendation is because of the paint’s Flexibility. Lacquers are not recommended with PVC products because lacquers are more brittle and won’t flex with the channel. Some suggestions: Duration by Sherwin Williams, Manor Hall paints by PPG and Moorelife by Benjamin Moore. In addition to paint type, only light-to-medium colored paints (Light Reflectance Value of 55% units or greater) should be applied to SpeediChannel or most any exterior PVC products. Light Reflectance Value (LRV) is a measurement that indicates how much light a color reflects. An LRV of 0% is absolute black and an LRV of 100% is perfectly reflective white. LRV is on the back of most color swatches and in the index of all major brands. It is not safe to assume the paint is a light color. Some paints that appear light beige can have an LRV in the 20s or 30s.
