Yes, ReRACK is non-toxic once completely dry.
ReRACK dries to the touch in 30-40 minutes. Wait 30-40 minutes in-between coats. Allow 24 hours for complete cure time.
The 14.5 oz. liquid can will cover approximately 5 sq. ft. at 10 mils thickness. The 11 oz. spray will cover about 6 sq. ft. at 5 mils thickness, and a gallon will cover approximately 30 square feet at 15 mils.
Plasti Dip® protective coating has a satin finish. If you are experiencing a cloudy or hazy finish, itís likely caused by high humidity. Avoid these conditions or add approximately 5-10% naphtha to reduce the problem.
Removing an item being dipped too quickly usually causes this. Remove at a rate of 1Ē every 5 seconds. If experiencing runs or sags when spraying, move can further away from the surface and apply a lighter coat. Sagging and dripping can also be caused by high humidity, high temperatures, windy conditions, and/or direct sun light. Ideal conditions are low humidity, 70 degrees, little to no air movement in a well ventilated area.
Most items being dip coated do not require priming because the coating is shrinking around the item as it dries. However, in extreme conditions or when adding protective coating to a large metal surface, primer is recommended. Use Plasti Dip® Primer or a high quality acrylic autobody-type primer. Do not use Rust-Oleum® primer as it is not compatible.
Plasti Dip® does not contain any heavy metals, and when completely dry, is considered harmless. However, it is not recommended that it be used on items that may be chewed or inserted into the mouth as it may present a choking hazard.
When following the directions, you can apply as many coats of Plasti Dip® protective coating as you like. In most uses 10-12 mils thickness is adequate (2 dip coats, 3-4 brush coats, 4-5 spray coats). Only in extreme cases or for aesthetic reasons is more thickness necessary.
Mixing different colors of Plasti Dip® protective coating can be done to achieve other colors. Your local hardware, home center, or paint store may also sell tubes of tinting colors. Add approximately 1/3 of a 1 oz. tube per 14.5 oz. can of Plasti Dip®.
While Plasti Dip® has been used for dishwasher rack repair in the past, it is not recommended. Our ReRACK product is much better suited for this application and works very well.
Plasti Dip® protective coating has excellent resistance to acids, alkaline, and most common household chemicals. However, it is best to test this before going ahead with your application. Plasti Dip® does have limited resistance to petroleum based products.
While Plasti Dip® has excellent dielectric properties (insulates against shock), our Liquid Tape Electrical product is specifically formulated and conveniently packaged for this application.
Rub acetone or finger nail polish remover in an inconspicuous area and apply Plasti Dip® to test for success.
Very low oven heat (between 100° - 150°) may be used on a conveyor. However, the part or object should first set or hang dry for 30 minutes for the fast releasing solvents to escape.
Plasti Dip® does not contain any polyvinylchloride or any other vinyl resins.
Yes, the Plasti Dip Enhancer in the Glossifier formulation provides a glossy finish on cured Plasti Dipped items. Plasti Dip Enhancers are formulated to bond only with the unique chemical structure of Plasti Dip and are not recommended for use on other surfaces.
Absolutely not! Super Grip® non-skid fabric coating is only designed for use on most fabric surfaces to stop skidding. Do not use Super Grip® directly on wood, ceramic, concrete, or other types of flooring surfaces.
DAP®, Goo Gone®, or mineral spirits can be used to clean up Super Grip®, but try it in an inconspicuous area first to ensure the cleaning solution doesn’t affect the surface you are cleaning.
While Plastiseam® is designed to seal against moisture penetration in sewn seams, it is not recommended for applications requiring permanent submersion in water.
While VLP® has been used in the past to recoat damaged dishwasher racks, our ReRACK product is specifically formulated and conveniently packaged for this application.

You can add 10% to 20% of either Naphtha or Toluene depending on your particular situation or application.
Dielectric strength refers to a materialís ability to insulate against electrical shock. Liquid Tape Electrical, being rubber based, provides excellent electrical insulation and is suitable for all types of household applications. Further dielectric information is available upon request.
Yes, carefully cut and peel Liquid Tape Electrical from the repair area. (Be sure to follow all health and safety warnings as well as local electrical codes when working with electricity).
While Vyna Bond is meant for use on vinyl and comes with a vinyl swatch for patching, it also works well on other porous fabrics and materials. It's best to test the suitability of Vyna Bond for your vinyl repair application.
