What IS Plasti Dip?

MULTIPURPOSE RUBBER COATING
Plasti Dip is an air-dry, specialty rubber coating. In fact, it’s the original peelable, flexible, insulating, non-slip, durable rubber coating. The Plasti Dip product line provides a wide range of coating solutions from automotive customization to home improvement. With tons of colors and enhancers of Plasti Dip, the possibilities are endless! We can create nearly any color you can imagine!

ATTRIBUTES OF PLASTI DIP:

  • Protects coated items against moisture, acids, abrasion, corrosion, and skidding/slipping, and provides a comfortable, controlled grip

  • Remains flexible and stretchy over time

  • Will not crack or become brittle in extreme weather conditions

  • Proven in temperatures from -30°F to 200°F

  • Peelable and removable off of most surfaces


HOW LONG DOES PLASTI DIP® LAST?
If properly applied, Plasti Dip® could last as long as 3 years without having to be retouched. It is very durable and will not lose it's bond. The spray distance when applying as well as the amount of coats applied will heavily determine the longevity of the product. After 3 years, or during the three years if desired, a new refresher coat can be easily applied.

WILL IT HOLD UP TO THE ELEMENTS (SUN, WINTER)?
Plasti Dip® is extremely resistant to the elements, including sun exposure, winter ice, cold, salt etc. A lot of customers actually dip their wheels and cars specifically to protect the original surfaces from the winter season. Please keep in mind however that Fluorescent and Blaze products are subject to fading after prolonged UV exposure. This only happens with these two items due to the fluorescent pigments utilized. We highly recommend Dip Coat™ Protective Spray to reduce the chance or marring and to increase UV protection.

WILL IT HOLD UP TO HEAT AND RACING?
Plasti Dip® is heat resistant up to 200 degrees F. Dipped wheels have a great record holding up to the heat and abuse from racing or rally events.

HOW DOES PLASTI DIP® HOLD UP TO GASOLINE?

Plasti Dip® is a solvent based coating and does not hold up to gasoline! Please be careful when filling your tank or working with gasoline around a dipped surface. For everyday use, we highly recommend using the DYC Dip Guard Gasoline Protector. The Dip Guard is a universal product that fits almost any gas tank and will give you greater room for error when fueling your Dipped vehicle.

CAN YOU DIP MY BRAND NEW OR NEWLY PAINTED VEHICLE?

When considering dipping new or newly repainted cars, DYC recommends testing your paint before any plasti-dip application. Apply the product to a small inconspicuous area and remove the dip after it’s dried ensure the new paint is cured enough to withstand the application and removal process. Testing is always suggested before dipping a repainted or repaired car.

DOES IT REALLY PEEL OFF?

Yes, Plasti Dip® really does peel off. We always suggest a minimum of 4-5 coats, not only for durability but to make sure it peels off in large pieces when you are ready.

COULD PLASTI DIP® DAMAGE MY CLEAR COAT?

We have been using Plasti Dip® on cars for over 5 years, and we have experienced zero damage to the cars we have dipped, peeled and redipped. However, every car, and every situation is unique.

HOW/CAN I WASH THE DIPPED AREAS OF MY CAR?

Dipped items/cars can be easily hand washed with regular car wash soap though we highly recommend our well known DipWasher and DipWash combo here available our Car Wash and Aftercare collection. Or, bring your vehicle by the shop and choose one of our detail packages!

HOW CAN I PROTECT MY PLASTI DIP® AND ENSURE IT STAYS IN THE BEST CONDITION?

Dip Coat™ will give your Dip an improved, slick feel that will help to resist marring, scratches, staining, and it will be easier to clean. Dip Coat™ also protects against damaging UV rays.
