Updated on May 4, 2012

What Is Plasti Dip?

Plasti Dip is a rubber spray on coating. It's most common uses are on tools to provide better grip, on gutters/planting pots to prevent leaking and, more recently, on cars. Plasti Dip is said to be able to withstand temperatures ranging from -30*F to 200*F. But while Plasti Dip holds strong after applied, it's also incredibly easy to remove without damaging an items original finish. It literally peels right off.

Most people manage to turn their wheels black with 2 cans of Plasti Dip. And Plasti Dip even offers the spray on rubber coating in a variety of colors.

But many automotive enthusiasts have taken the product even further. Many people are using the products to "paint" accents on their cars. Hood scoops, spoilers, gas caps, grilles, emblems, etc. The things a person can Plasti Dip on their car are limited only by their creativity. Some people use Plasti Dip to decide if they want to actually paint parts of their car. They simply spray the part they may want painted and leave it there for a while. If they don't like it, they can just peel it off, And if they do like it, they can peel it off and have the area permanently painted.

And some people have taken the Plasti Dip craze to an extreme, but completely coating their vehicles in the product!

It It Just Flat Black In A Spray Can?
