HOW TO USE FULL DIP LIQUID VINYL ?

CLEANING OF SURFACES

Before application, the surface must be clean,free of grease and dry. Pay special attention to edges and gaps. To clean and degrease the surface, use our the Full Dip® Predip cleaning concentrate (dilute as per instructions before use). Alternatively, isopropyl alcohol diluted with 50% distilled water by total amount can be used. Then let the surface evaporate sufficiently (about 20-30 minutes at room temperature). If residues from the cleaning agent are still present on the surface or the flash-off time is not adhered to, this can lead to tiny dot formations or fish eyes on the surface after spraying full dip. You can also use mild soap detergent,then rinse and dry well. NOTE! Please do not use other products such as silicone or wax remover, The use of these agents may cause problems with full dip such as solidifying the liquid rubber, longer drying times, Soak in to the dip causing it to peel off immediately under mechanical stress. Cover and Protect before Spraying All non-coated components should be covered or masked without exception. These include brake systems, engine compartment, electronics, vehicle interior, tires. NOTE! Avoid contact with headlamps, electronics and brake systems. Please also note that some plastic surfaces and headlamps can be sensitive to solvent-based products such as FullDip®. Before use, test any surfaces for compatibility in an invisible location. Full Dip will bond to almost any surface you spray it on, if the surface is not absolutely clean and dry, you will get imperfections and faults. So it is important you clean & dry properly, Cleaned perfectly and you will get a uniform smooth finish that will last for years. Note for Fluorescent Aerosol sprays:  How to show off that neon fluorescent look. Using any of the fluorescent colours always apply a base coat of white matte full dip. You only need 2 or 3 coats of white and 2 or 3 coats of your fluorescent colour to complete your project. After a couple of months outside in the sunlight all fluorescent colours will start to fade. With Full dip Fluorescents you can fix by cleaning the surface of the fluorescent paint and applying an extra coat and it will look new again. This is an easy fix for small projects like car & motorbike wheels. I would not do a whole car or motorbike in fluorescent for this reason. Having said that, a lot of people spray racing cars & bikes for track days. It looks cool, easy to add more or remove.

Matte or Metalizer colours 12 – 15 inch wheels you need 3 cans of your full dip colour choice. 16 – 18 inch wheels you need 4 cans of your full dip colour choice. 19 – 22 inch wheels you need 5 cans of your full dip colour choice.

Apply as many coats as you want. Keep in mind that you will need an average of about 5 coats. Remember the more coats applied the stronger and more durable the finish will be and easier to peel. If you want to apply our high gloss acrylic aerosol or 2 pack high gloss, then lay down 7 coats of full dip and leave for 24 hours before applying the high gloss. Trying the aerosol glossifier or 4 litre tin full dip glossifier. First lay down 5 coats of your full dip colour. Now you can apply glossifier after only one hour or next day. The new glossifier from full dip is very good and glossy. Also not hard to apply like high gloss.

To spray my car

How much Full Dip do I need Depending on the color of full dip paint you want to use, you may need more or less paint . Example : if your car is black and you want full dip yellow or red, then you should use another colour of full dip as a base coat / primer to cover the dark black. In this case I would use 2 coats of full dip white and 4 coats of red or yellow. This makes it easy to cover original black and keep the full dip red or yellow looking bright and vibrant.

Base coats

Darker full dip colours gun metal grey, blue and black to name a few, don’t need base coats. Every full dip fluorescent colour needs white dip as a base coat to give you that bright neon fluorescent look. Our Full Dip Chameleons and candy pearls must be sprayed over a base coat of black or white full dip.This will depend how you want the finish to look. Each spray application is different. Full dip has excellent coverage and a lots of colours and metalizers that do not need a base coat. As a general rule, Small cars two 4 litre tins of sprayable, Compact cars require three or four (usually three tins) and Large sedans or SUV four or five tins of 4 litre (usually four tins) are needed. If you require a base coat first, then one 4 litre tin until you get to the large sedans or SUV should be fine.
