If properly applied, Plasti Dip® could last as long as 3 years without having to be retouched. It’s very durable and will not lose its 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.
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.
Plasti Dip® is heat resistant up to 93 degrees C. Dipped wheels have a great record holding up to the heat and abuse from racing or rally events.
When considering dipping new or newly repainted cars, DYC Asia 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.
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.
DYC Asia always suggests a minimum of 4-5 coats. Wheels, etc. may benefit from an extra couple coats for good measure.
DYC Asia always suggests using PreDip Spray and paper towels to prep the wheels or car before dipping. This will eliminate and grease, oil, dirt, debris or wax that may hinder the dip’s ability to bond. Allow the surface to dry completely, any moisture (even if it is not visible, behind body panels or trim) could negatively affect the bonding process and lead to bubbling. A clean and dry surface is essential.
Plasti Dip, for most customers, will peel directly off the tires. How easily the dip will peel off the tires depends on how dry your tires are. If your tires look or feel dry, we suggest applying a very thin layer of tire shine on your tires before applying the dip. This will make sure the dip releases easily from the tires. Make sure not to get any of the tire shine on the surface or edge of the wheel! Tire shine stops dip from adhering to your wheel surface, so if you choose to apply it, apply it very carefully.
Although Plasti Dip works and behaves exactly the same for most users, there are certainly specific circumstances in which the Plasti Dip could not behave as expected. The age of the car, the condition of the clear coat, if you have already done a DIY paint job on the surface, etc. are all possible factors that could effect the way the Plasti Dip bonds, peels, or the covers. Although most users will have a predictable and trouble free experience with dip, we suggest you do a small test spot on the surfaces you will be dipping before you begin your project.
DYC has been using Plasti Dip on cars for over 5 years, and we have experienced zero damage to the cars we have dipped, peeled and re-dipped. However every car, and every situation is unique. Even with Plasti Dip’s great track record, we still recommend dipping a small test spot on your car before dipping the entire thing. Especially consider longer test phases with cars that have been re-painted. Every paint shop will use different types and amounts of clear coat – and Plasti Dip can’t possibly guarantee the exact same result on every unique paint job.
Of course! We have hundreds of customers that use the Original Clear Plasti Dip® as a protective clear bra. Works great!
We developed the Dip Coat™ Protective Spray for exactly this reason; to protect your Dip and keep it looking great. 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.
In our experience, we have found that Plasti Dip peels easily off most lights. However, we have found a few types of head lights or tail lights that does not respond well with Plasti Dip. Our suggestion, to be safe, is to always mask off head lights and tail lights to ensure there is no negative reaction.
The usual recommended spray distance is between 4-5 inches away for aerosol cans and about 8-10 inches when using our DipSprayer System. For visual reference, watch Fonzie spray here: www.YouTube.com/DipYourCar.
Of course! We have shops and customers all over the country who spray our Plasti Dip® through all kinds of sprayers and spray guns. Pre-thinned Plasti Dip® is also available in Gallons! It comes ready to spray.
Every vehicle will require a specific amount of Plasti Dip® and this amount can vary depending on the size of your vehicle, its current color and the color you would like to Dip it. We suggesting contacting DYC Asia at (+65) 6841 1333 or firstname.lastname@example.org to give you the recommended amount of product for your vehicle.
When using cans of Plasti Dip®, make sure to shake well before use. The cans should not be stored below room temperature before application. Hold the cans upright and do not point lower than a 45% angle to the ground to avoid drips and splatter.
We always recommend Gunmetal Grey base coats for white and light colored vehicles (unless you’re Dipping the car White). Gunmetal Grey can also improve the the coverage of Yellow, Red, and in general can help extreme color transitions (a darker paint to a light Dip or light paint to a dark Dip).
Yes, in fact you’ll find the best results by adding DipPearls to the DipPearl TopCoat. Because of its outstanding level of clarity and suspension properties, the topcoat work is ideal for use with pearl and flake additives. When applied over pearl-mixed coats the DipPearl TopCoat can create visible depth to your plasti dip surface.
