Plasti Dip International’s New Primer Gives Plasti Dip A Stronger Grip
14 January 2013—Plasti Dip International has developed a new product designed to complement the performance of their namesake, flagship product. Plasti Dip Primer is a simple way to make original Plasti Dip’s bond to metal and many plastic surfaces more permanent.
Though it creates a tough, durable coating on nearly any surface, Plasti Dip can be peeled off relatively easily, should users choose to do so. Plasti Dip Primer is designed to be applied before the accompanying Plasti Dip, and is specially formulated to make Plasti Dip’s adhesion stronger and nearly permanent without compromising any of its beneficial properties. Plasti Dip Primer is specially formulated for use on metal and most, but not all, plastics. It is available in 11-ounce aerosol cans for fast and easy application.
NEW Plasti Dip Pearlizer Added to Enhancers Line
8 October 2012—Plasti Dip International is pleased to announce the release of Plasti Dip Pearlizer, the latest addition to our Plasti Dip Enhancers lineup.
Plasti Dip Pearlizer is designed to complement the look of our original Plasti Dip protective rubber coating. Pearlizer gives Plasti Dip’s usual matte finish a unique pearlescent gleam and a subtle white tint. It works with any color of cured, dried Plasti Dip, and is the perfect way to give any DIY project a lustrous new look./p>
Introducing NEW Plasti Dip Blaze & Gunmetal Gray Plasti Dip
25 June 2012—Plasti Dip International has just released three new variations of our popular Plasti Dip synthetic rubber coating. These latest formulations add three new colors to the Plasti Dip lineup: Gunmetal Gray, Blaze Blue, and Blaze Orange.
As with all our Plasti Dip varieties, Gunmetal Gray and both Blaze colors offer one-of-a-kind protection against abrasion, corrosion, skidding, slipping, and the elements, while adding a soft, comfort-grip covering. Gunmetal Gray delivers the semi-metallic color that so many Plasti Dip users have been requesting, while both Blaze varieties offer bright, neon hues. There are plans for additional Blaze colors in the near future.
Plasti Dips Blaze and Gunmetal Gray can be found in easy-to-use 11-oz. aerosol cans, for quick, convenient application to nearly any substrate surface. They’re available from many of the same retailers who carry our other Performix Brand products.
Plasti Dip’s March Madness
Continuing a trend that started in 2010, Plasti Dip International has set more all-time sales records. March 2012 was the biggest sales month in company history, and quarterly sales for Q1 2012 were an all-time high, as well. We’ve said it before, and we hope to say it again: this outstanding run of growth and success is thanks to the ever-growing support of Plasti Dip International’s many loyal customers and fans.
No doubt the usefulness, versatility, and superior quality of our Performix® Brand products is helpful to these accomplishments, but without YOU—the consumer, industrial, and manufacturing customers who put our products to use every day—we couldn’t and wouldn’t be where we are today. Everyone at Plasti Dip International would like to extend our deepest thanks to each and every one of you!
We look forward to continued successes, and hope that you’ll continue to make Plasti Dip International a part of your DIY, industrial, and manufacturing projects. We’ve added a number of new products to our lineup over the past months, and have more great innovations to come. With your continued support—both in buying our products and in spreading the word on Facebook, Twitter, and elsewhere—Plasti Dip International can extend the March Madness we’ve enjoyed far into the future.
Again, sincerest thanks to all our customers—we can’t do it without you!
2011 a Record Year for Plasti Dip International
After an outstanding, record-setting year in 2010, Plasti Dip International is pleased to announce record-breaking sales again for 2011, with record quarterly sales for Q4 2011. Neither of these achievements would have been possible without the continued support of Plasti Dip International's many customers and loyal fans.
The quality and usefulness of Plasti Dip International's products is an important factor in our sustained sales success, of course, but we wouldn't be where we are today without our customers. Our faithful fans, friends, and followers have been and will continue to be the driving force behind Plasti Dip Interntional's success. Whether you're buying and using our products, interacting with us on Facebook and Twitter, or visiting PlastiDip.com, we want to sincerely thank you for making our success possible.

Plasti Dip International Unveils 3 New "Enhancer" Products
With three new products arriving at retail soon, Plasti Dip International looks to further broaden the appeal of its best-selling original Plasti Dip, known for having "1,001 Uses and Counting."
Plasti Dip International is pleased to announce the launch of three new products in their Home Solutions product line. These new offerings, known as "Plasti Dip Enhancers," are designed to complement the performance of the company's best-selling Plasti Dip specialty rubber coating.
Plasti Dip is a unique, do-it-yourself, flexible rubberized coating with nearly endless uses and applications, available in brush-on/dip-on and aerosol varieties. With their new Plasti Dip Enhancers, Plasti Dip International offers three ways to make their original Plasti Dip even better.
Plasti Dip is available in a range of colors, as well as a "Create Your Color" Kit that allows users to mix their own custom colors—this color variety has made Plasti Dip popular for decorative and crafting purposes. Enhancers expand on this popularity by giving users the ability to add different finishes to applied, cured Plasti Dip.
Plasti Dip Glossifier transforms Plasti Dip's normal satin finish into a shiny, polished-looking one more akin to the look of high gloss spray paint. Plasti Dip Gold Metalizer and Plasti Dip Silver Metalizer create a shimmering, metallic look that allows the original color of the Plasti Dip to show through. All three Enhancers are specially designed to work with Plasti Dip's chemical structure for superb, long-lasting performance.
Plasti Dip International's new Enhancers will be available in stores by late-November 2011. Plasti Dip Enhancers will be sold at many of the same home improvement centers, hardware stores, and other retailers where Plasti Dip International's other products are found.
Plasti Dip International manufactures a wide range of coatings, sealants, and adhesives. Based in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area, Plasti Dip International has been creating its high quality products since the early 1970s. In addition to original Plasti Dip, the company's products include Liquid Tape, a brush-on formulation that takes the place of electrical tape, Anything Foam, a repair product for foam cushions and other foam products, and many other one-of-a-kind creations. Plasti Dip International's products are sold under the Performix brand name, as well as through other partner brands.

Plasti Dip Posts Record Sales
Plasti Dip International is pleased to announce a number of sales records; all made possible thanks to the support of our customers and end users. Plasti Dip enjoyed a record sales year in 2010, as well as quarterly sales records for both Q2 and Q3 of 2011. September 2011 marked the single best sales month in company history.
With the current state of America's struggling economy, it's rare to see any company posting record sales over any period. That Plasti Dip was able to generate record numbers for a full year, post even higher quarterly sales numbers the following year, and top it off with our best monthly sales ever, is not only a testament to the quality and usefulness of the products we make; it's also proof of the huge levels of support we’ve received from our many satisfied customers.
Plasti Dip International's products can be found at www.plastidip.com. We hope for the continuing support from you, our loyal customers, and look forward to reaching even more customers in the future, on our way to continued sales success.

NEW PRODUCT RELEASE-
F-939 LCC [Low Cost Coating] for Manufacturers of Specialty Flexible Foam Products!
For the past few years our OEM Customers have been asking for a very high performing yet low cost coating alternative to address cost down pressures they are recieving from their customers.

By achieving a significant cost savings and greatly increasing tensile, elongation and tare strength performance we have really stepped up and provided our customers a high value product".

This is no April fools joke. Plasti Dip International set a new monthly sales record in March as well as a record quarter!
"We have been very fortunate and made some of our own luck along the way through hard work, sacrifice and planning" states Scott Haasl President of Plasti Dip International.

"It's been a balance of opportunities that are building a solid foundation for future growth in a number of areas of the business". He also adds "there are some signs of improvement with some of our customers who have been hit really hard by the weak economy, this is a positive sign".
Haasl also adds "it's not just loyal customers that put us in this position: it's also the hard work and dedication of our employees as well as the support of our supplier/ partners that has made the difference. We don't take this for granted".

NEW- PRODUCT RELEASE - TB F-874 and TB F-888
Plasti Dip International is excited to announce availability of 2 new products. Our valued customers continue to provide us with important feed back of how to make our products work more efficiently as well as how we might help them meet new environmental or performance challenges and capture new opportunities. These new products are direct results of this collaborative effort.
F-874 Muraculon satin finish-
F-874 Muraculon is similar to F-830 Muraculon spray coating for polyurethane foams. It uses the same equipment and approximate settings as F-830. However, it provides two distinct advantages:
50% lower VOC's
New Satin Finish- which eliminates finish "gloss" fluctuation caused by seasonal weather changes while also reducing "grab" or blocking.
F-874 Muraculon is available in many color choices and is available in 5 gallon and 50 gallon drums for volume users. Please let us know if you would like a sample of F-874 to try for yourself.
F-888 Muraculon T.S. "TOUGH SKIN"
F-888 Muraculon T.S. is also very similar to F-830 Muraculon spray coating for polyurethane foams. It uses the same equipment and approximate settings as F-830. However F-888 offers distinct performance advantages as well as improved adhesion properties. Many F-830 customers have asked for a more a durable, puncture resistant product to withstand harsh environments such as military applications, day care and hospital furniture and other applications where sewn vinyl covers have been the only choice.
*30% higher tensile strength
*25% higher tear strength
*20% higher elongation
New Satin Finish
*As compared to F-830 Muraculon
There is significant opportunity in this market when you consider the limitations in size, shape, minimums per color choice and labor involved in sewn covers. F-888 is available in many color choices and is packaged in 5 gallon and 50 gallon drums for volume users. Please let us know if you would like a sample of the new F-888 Muraculon T.S. to try for yourself.
The R&D staff has been hard at work the past 18 months preparing new protective coatings for all types of flexible foam applications. Several are in the final stages of development so stay tuned for more innovative foam protection products from Plasti Dip International.
