Spectralock epoxy paintable?

Installing tile baseboard in bath. Top horizontal plane is square, will be grouting gap between tile and sheerock, will possibly be painting top of base the same color as wall. For the floor we will be using spectralock pro epoxy and would use it at the top of base as well unless it doesnt hold paint well. Anyone with experience with that?

If I were going to paint it, I'd use caulk there.

But to answer your question, I don't know for sure, but I think cured spectralock would be paintable. That would be one that I'd call laticrete about if I was set on doing it they way.

The top ten reasons to procrastinate:

I used Spectralock in my bathroom remodel, and one of the places included the tile border between the granite countertop and the back wall. When I painted the wall, I masked the tile but ended up with a line of paint across the top edge of the grout.

It has been several years now and the paint has not peeled or discolored where it is over the Spectralock. This area gets wet from sink splash and is wiped down/cleaned periodically.

I can say that the Spectralock holds paint well.
