Plasti Dip Primer is specially formulated to complement Plasti Dip’s already outstanding performance by giving it a better, stronger grip on metal and many plastic surfaces. Using Plasti Dip Primer and allowing a minimum of 1 hour dry time will improve the adhesion of Plasti Dip when applied to smooth, shiny surfaces.


To improve adhesion, apply Plasti Dip Primer on metal surfaces before applying Plasti Dip. Allow 1 hour dry time. One coat is recommended. Coverage: Approximately 5-10 sq. ft. per can. For a stronger bond, apply Primer before the use of Plasti Dip.  Primer should always be followed by Plasti Dip and is not intended for use on its own.

Product FAQ

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.

Plasti Dip protective coating has a satin finish. If you are experiencing a cloudy or hazy finish, it’s likely caused by high humidity. Avoid these conditions or add approximately 5-10% naphtha to reduce the problem.

Dipping and removing too quickly can cause this. Remove at a rate of 1” 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, or direct sunlight. 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 auto body-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). Greater thickness might be necessary for aesthetic reasons or in extreme cases.
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.
