A better alternative would be to use a xylene-based bonding primer, followed by a topcoat of an oil or 100% acrylic floor paint.

PPG makes a product, Break-through, that should be successful without a primer. However, a primer would ensure longer durability.

How to Paint Vinyl Flooring?

Painting vinyl flooring is a good way to change flooring that is in good condition but needs to be updated. Quality vinyl flooring does not need removal to obtain a new revitalized look. A few instructional steps are needed to start a fairly straightforward task of painting vinyl flooring. This project is economical and allows for personal creativity. To paint vinyl flooring, you will need: Clean vinyl flooring Floor paint Sand block Deglosser (optional) Several cloths Paint rollers (several) Paint primer Step 1: Remove the gloss. Rub down the flooring using a sanding block to remove the shine property from the vinyl. This step is important because it provides the paint with a rough surface to adhere to. Step 2: Optional step. Use a deglossing agent found in hardware stores to remove any remaining gloss on the vinyl. Apply the anti - glosser to a cloth, then use on flooring where needed. Allow it to penetrate for 10 minutes and following product instructions whether to rub-off or not. Step 3: Prepare the surface. Make use of a paint roller to apply a thick layer of primer to the dry vinyl flooring. After the first coat has dried, put on a second coat of primer. The primer allows an even surface for the paint to hold to. Step 4: Paint the flooring. Utilize a roller to apply the paint to the dry floor. The roller provides an even distribution of color on the vinyl. Any areas where the vinyl pattern is visible should be given an extra coat of paint. Step 5: Repeat painting. Apply multiple coats of paint to obtain the desired look. All coats should be applied after flooring has dried from previous applications. Step 6: Seal the look. Use a roller to apply multiple layers of paint sealant. The sealant protects the floor from damage due to regular wear and tear. Painting vinyl flooring is completed after sealant has dried. Tips Sanding and deglosser can be used together or solo Stencils can be used to create an original flooring design

How should one prepare a floor before putting down new vinyl flooring?

It depends on the type of floor that you are putting down the vinyl flooring on top of. If it is concrete, then make sure it is clean, dry and repair any cracks or holes. If the old vinyl flooring is in good repair then just put the new vinyl flooring over it or use an embossing leveler for slightly worn vinyl flooring. If the old vinyl flooring is in very poor shape remove it completely. Plywood underlayment can be used for other types of flooring that you will put new vinyl flooring down on top of.
