Renovating a shop premises...former butcher shop...gloss ceiling...
Apart from sugar soap washing...any thoughts on getting emulsion to
stick reliably ?
Was thinking a roller coat of perhaps 2 to 1 pva...to avoid sanding
it....volunteer community project..short on help
All thoughts valued...(except for the ones which say "never
Probably the simplest way is to just keep coating it. Although each
coat shrinks back, what remains does stick IME, if the gloss is clean,
and after several coats you get full cover. Sanding it is more work.
PVA only helps emulsion to not stick.
I would be inclined to get a flat pad on a pole, stick some sandpaper on
it and give a quick rub over. I know you dont want to sand but maybe a
quick 10 mins on this may save extra work later on if the paint doesnt
Leave the PVA out of it.
You need a primer for gripping on difficult surfaces. Dulux and others
make it, here is the example from Crown
