hard to tell what the texture is online. id like to try a sample. apparently they sell it at H.D.

You don't need to do much prep work at all before spraying it on almost anything including chrome. No sanding, no scuffing, nothing more usually than just an alcohol wipe down and you're good to go. And when you want to take it off, it literally just peels off like you would expect a rubber coating to do, because that's basically what it is.

on second thought this might be a good choice for plastic stuff in 60's and 70's trailers that have aged. or even to make a white roof like they used to do to vintage airstreams.

I am seriously considering. I think I will build a test aluminum panel with several seams to see what happens.

Question

....
"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. Check in our videos section and you will see a video showing how it peels off of wheels, etc. It will peel off even after a long period of time - however after extreme lengths of time (8-12 months), it may dry out a bit and come off in smaller pieces.

How long does Plasti Dip® last? If properly applied, Plasti Dip® will 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."

........ something a little more permanent, please. KBS Diamond Clear.

Bob

Bob Looks like the Diamond stuff mimics the Alcoa treatment???? Anyway, will read up about its flexibility. Thanks! I was thinking of the Plastidip sprayed inside the outer skin....wonder if it would seal, whether it would come off inside since low exposure to elements??? A roof application which lasts 3 years does not sound very good.

What has your experience been with the product?

Channing,

It's under trial on the lower unit of our boat motor, if it survives there it will survive anywhere. (unpolished bare aluminum...we'll see.)

Please, please keep regular updates on the Diamond test. I am thinking of using it on the interior of our 1970 which I plan to re-skin with bare aluminum. From the website description it should be flexible enough to not be bothered by the expansion/contraction due to temp variance.

Will do...the boats going in storage in a couple weeks so I'll continue with it next Season.

I learned about KBS back in August. Had the L/U off for service when the order arrived so I thought I'd give it a try. I used it on the torque skeg, which takes some serious stress. Only got about 10hrs of running, going to do another coat and leave if shiny next Spring. It hasn't oxidized like it has in the past, easy clean and no pealing so far.

Has anyone used Plasti Dip on their wheels? My OEM wheels are peeling, and I need to do something. I'm curious.

I'm bringing this old thread back to life because I have been reading up on Plasti-Dip. I'm considering putting it on my Miata. Then the thought occurred to me that it might be a good solution for those project Argosys. I know I have seen decently priced Argosy projects and passed on them because of the expensive paint job they will require, but this looks like you could get a decent paint job in the driveway, and it would probably seal up any leaks as well. So I wondered if anyone here has tried it on anything yet?

In the car world it is getting a lot of use on wheels and car bodies. Seems like if it can hold up on wheels it must last pretty well.

I used it on the font of my wife's Jeep, just the silver "appliqué" that fits the centre section of the front bumper. The texture etc matches the factory bumper really well. It's been on since new back in November 2012 and is unmarked right now. It wasn't much of a risk as the piece comes off and I could have just tossed it away. I think it's got it's uses but they are, as with everything, limited in some ways.

I thought I would resurrect the thread again.
Reading up a bit of info, the PD folks have a primer that can be used and when the PD is then applied over top, its pretty much permanent (they say) So I am going to give it a try on the front of our Argosy.

Just out of curiosity, how did it come out? I've been looking at this product too, and though it has some obvious limitations, I can't bring myself to spend the alternative $9k for a paint job on a trailer that cost $10k. It seems like this would be low cost, I could apply it, and it would at least protect the aluminum skin for a couple years without harming it. How did it work for you guys?
