If properly applied, Plasti Dip could last as long as 3 years without having to 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 3 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. We highly recommend Dip Coat Protective Spray to reduce the chance or marring and to increase UV protection.
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 recommed using the 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.
When considering dipping new or newly repainted cars, We recommends testing your paint before any Plasti Dip application. Apply the product ot 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.
