PLASTI DIP FAQ

Is this really something I can do myself?
Of course!  Thousands of Do-It-Yourself customers use our products to change the color of their cars every month.  It doesn't matter what your experience or skill set is - as long as you follow instructions and use our tutorial videos as your guide, these products are very user friendly.  Remember, these products are peelable, so worst case scenario if you make a mistake, you can peel it off and try again!  Give it a go!
How difficult is it to Dip your car or wheels?
Plasti Dip is a very do it yourself friendly product! Dippers spray their emblems, wheels, and vehicles on a daily basis with limited to no previous experience. Although the product is designed for the DIY applicator, there will always be an element of human error involved during the process. The Dipper’s prep process, application technique, and other variables will be a factor in the final result.
How long does Plasti Dip® last?
If properly applied, Plasti Dip® can easily last 3+ years or longer without having to be retouched. It is a very durable and resilient product. The spray technique 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 of marring and to increase UV protection.
Will it hold up to heat and racing?
Plasti Dip® is heat resistant up to 200° F. Dipped wheels have an excellent history of 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 exposure 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 I dip my brand new or newly painted car?
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 suggest a minimum of 6+ coats, not only for durability, but to make sure it peels off in large pieces when you are ready for removal.
How many coats should I put on?
DYC always suggests a minimum of 6 coats, but as everyone sprays coats differently, the most important factor is the total amount of product used.  Each Wheel Kit and Car Kit on DipYourCar.com will already include the correct amount of product needed for your project.  All you have to do is use up all the material we include in your kit!  If you're confused about how much product you need for your project, please contact DYC Customer Service. Winter wheels, etc. may benefit from an extra couple coats for good measure.
How should I prep my wheels or car before dipping?
DYC always suggests using PreDip Spray and MicroFiber 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.
Should I mask my tires or spray Dip directly onto them?
For most customers, Plasti Dip® will peel directly off the tires. But to make the process easier, we suggest using Dip Release to create a barrier between the tires and your Dip for easy removal of overspray. Apply a small amount of Dip Release™ to a dry microfiber towel. Spread the product evenly across the sidewall of each tire, making sure to work the liquid into any tread, design or wording on the tire. Avoid getting Dip Release™ on the edge or any part of the wheel. If contact is made, clean the product from the wheel completely before Dipping.
Will Plasti Dip® work exactly the same on every car, every surface?
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.
Could Plasti Dip® damage my clear coat?
DipYourCar.com and our customers have been using Plasti Dip® on cars for over 7 years, and it is extremely rare to experience damage on vehicles that are dipped, peeled and even redipped. 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.
Do you ship internationally?
DipYourCar can ship products internationally with some limitations. Please send all international inquiries to Dan@dipyourcar.com
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.
Can I use Plasti Dip® as a clear protective bra for the front of my car?
Of course! However we suggest using the DYC ProLine products for clear bra applications, as they will ultimately perform better for this task.
How can I protect my Plasti Dip® and ensure it stays in the best condition?
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.
Can I Plasti Dip® over head lights and tail lights?
In our experience, we have found that Plasti Dip® peels easily off of most lights. However, we have found a few types of head lights or tail lights do 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.
How far away should I spray Plasti Dip®?
The usual recommended spray distance is between 4-5 inches away for aerosol cans and about 6-8 inches when using our DipSprayer System™. For visual reference, watch Fonzie spray here: www.YouTube.com/DipYourCar
Will Plasti Dip® protect my wheels from winter salt/snow?
Plasti Dip® is extremely resistant to the elements, including 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.
Can Plasti Dip® be sprayed out of a spray gun?
Of course! We have developed the DYC DipSprayer specifically for spraying Plasti Dip. However, if you wish to use an HVLP/RP compressor fed gun, please use the DYC ProLine coatings, as the Plasti Dip gallons are too thick to flow through those guns.
How many gallons would I need to dip a whole car?
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 suggest contacting one of our technicians at (855) 847-5825 or Customerservice@dipyourcar.com to give you the recommended amount of product for your vehicle.
How can I get the best results with Plasti Dip® Aerosol?
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.
Do I need to use base coats?
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). If you have any questions about base coats, please contact one of our technicians at (855) 847-5825 or at CustomerService@dipyourcar.com.
Is it possible to achieve a High Gloss finish with Plasti Dip?
It is possible to achieve a glossy finish using our Glossy DipPearl Topcoat over Plasti Dip Spray.  However the gloss finish will not match what you find with OEM or factory clear coats.  For a removable paint of that quality, you would need a professional to apply AutoFlex.
How do I choose which coating or product is right for me?
DipYourCar offers three peelable coatings; Plasti Dip®, ProLine™, and AutoFlex™ Coatings. Plasti Dip® products were designed for the DIY level customer and can be applied successfully with entry level equipment. ProLine, an intermediate level product, should be applied by applicators with upgraded equipment and spraying experience. AutoFlex Coatings are considered a premium product and should be applied by professionals in professional settings. See which coating is right for you.
