Plasti Dip is a multi-purpose, air dry, specialty rubber coating. It can be easily applied by dipping, brushing, or spraying. Plasti Dip protective coating is ideal for a broad array of do-it-yourself projects around the home, garage, garden and elsewhere. It protects coated items against moisture, acids, abrasion, corrosion, skidding/slipping, and provides a comfortable, controlled grip. Plasti Dip remains flexible and stretchy over time, and will not crack or become brittle in extreme weather conditions. It has been tested and proven in temperatures from -34ºc to +93ºc. Plasti Dip can be dipped, brush coated and sprayed. Add more layers for greater protection and grip.

Pre-thinned Plasti Dip is ready for spraying. Wash surface and then wipe surface with alcohol prior to applying Plasti Dip to ensure surface is clean. DO NOT USE PREPSOL as this causes static and the Plasti Dip will have a furry finish. Stir frequently whilst spraying to stop separation of Plasti Dip and Thinners. We recommend 5-7 thin spray coats as Plasti Dip is air cured and will not dry if applied too thickly.
Customers are using this product to coat their wheel rims using the Preval Cordless Spray Unit or their own spray gun. We recommend 5-7 coats of Plasti Dip to get good coverage, this will make the Plasti Dip easier to peel off if/when required. You can download the Technical Data Sheet in the toolbar below for technical information and usage instructions.

2 x 3.78 litre cans to spray the small vehicle.
3 x 3.78 litre cans for a medium vehicle
and 4 x 3.78 litre for a large vehicle
and 5 x 3.78 litre + for a large SUV/4WD
(This is an estimate only. There are many variables in the usage, ie: what colour you are applying and what colour you are applying over, how much overspray, weather conditions, etc. and the usage is a guide only. If you are putting a light coloured Plasti Dip over a dark coloured vehicle you will probably use more)
PLASTI DIP TIPS
Plasti Dip comes in regular or pre-thinned sprayable formulas. The pre-thinned Plasti Dip is a mix of 1 part Plasti Dip and 1 part Plasti Dip Thinners. We do not recommend any other type of thinners. DO NOT use car paint thinners as this will damage the paintwork on the vehicle.
We recommend you wash the vehicle with warm water and dishwashing liquid. If there are any greasy or waxy areas we recommend using rubbing alcohol to remove them. Do not use a car wash with silicone to clean the vehicle before spraying as Plasti Dip will not stick to silicone. We suggest you mask up any areas that you do not want coated and cover your wheels, brakes, etc., if you are not removing the wheels. The Plasti Dip can then be applied. You will need a spray gun that will run at 20psi with a 1.3-1.5mil needle, maximum 2mil needle. If the Plasti Dip comes out of the gun at a high psi the Plasti Dip will dry before hitting the surface and will give a sandpaper finish. Also, we recommend that the spray gun be 6-8”away from the surface, otherwise again the Plasti Dip will dry before hitting the surface and give a sandpaper type finish. If you get runs you are probably too close or spraying too heavily. It is recommended that you remove any tape whilst the last coat of Plasti Dip is still wet to avoid the Plasti Dip sticking to the tape.
A small vehicle uses approx. 2 x 3.78 litres of Pre-Thinned Sprayable Formula, a medium vehicle 3 x 3.78 litres and a large vehicle 4 x 3.78 litres and a larger 4WD 5 x 3.78 litres. These are a guide only as there are many variables such as overspray. If you are putting a light coloured Plasti Dip over a dark coloured vehicle you will probably use more. It is recommended to put a base of grey Plasti Dip on first if you are putting a light colour over a dark colour to stop the dark colour showing through. This should also decrease the amount of the lighter coloured Plasti Dip required.
If you are using powders it is strongly recommended to put them over several coats of regular Plasti Dip as the powders can discolour the cars paintwork.
If you are applying Plasti Dip over a bare metal surface we recommend you use the Plasti Dip Primer first, once touch dry the Plasti Dip needs to be applied to get maximum adhesion. We DO NOT recommend you use Plasti Dip Primer on vehicles if you wish to remove the Plasti Dip at a later date.
We recommend 5-7 spray coats of Plasti Dip to ensure a thick enough coating so that it can be easily removed if/when required. It will take approx 4 spray coats to start to get good coverage.
We DO NOT recommend you use prepsol as this causes static to build up which gives a very rough, furry finish to the Plasti Dip
