does elastomeric roof paint stick to ABS plastic?

I would like to know if anyone who has used a white elastomeric roof paint like Black Jack Maxx-Cool or Henry's Envirowhite can tell me if these products adhere well to ABS pipe extrustions on the roof. I need to paint an ABS sheet that is used as a roof, and I've heard that Kool Seal works well but I can't get that product in my area.

Thank you,

San Luis Obispo, CA

Welcome to the forums Greg!

Plastics are one of the harder substrates to get a good paint job on because of it's slick non porous nature. You'll want to make sure the ABS is clean and it doesn't hurt to scuff sand it before applying a primer. I'm not sure which primer would be best under those coatings but your local paint store [not a paint dept] should be able to tell you which primers would work best.
