hi,

I am installing aquapanel along a wall in my bathroom where two thirds of the wall will be a shower area and tiled and the other third will be painted with a towel rad.

Can you paint directly onto aquapanel? Do you have to prime it or anything first? What is the best way to disguise the joints? Do not really want to skim as the area to be painted is only 0.6m wide x 2.7m high.

Thanks in advance

I would have thought Aquapanel far too coarse for a finish and the screw fixings and joints would look rough. Moisture resistant plaster board with a couple of coats of paint should be OK if it is out of the splash zone.
I used Marmox board, a similar product to aquapanel (but insulating and somewhat smoother than aquapanel) in my bathroom, I skimmed it in the untiled area with Pollycell Smoothover and with a light sand it painted nicely.
