What is the best way to keep plastidip from clinging to a can?
- Wipe the spray nozzle clean after each use, since plastidip forms a little dry film on the nozzle that can prevent the spray paint from releasing for a few seconds when you attempt to spray it again. Also, while picking up the aerosol can for another spray of plastidip, shake the can for a few seconds to ensure that the plastidip is evenly distributed.

Can you spray over old Plasti Dip?
If you spray over the previous one, any texture will be visible, and the paint will not stay as long as it should. Plasti Dip will be smooth and durable if you remove the old thing first and then reapply numerous applications of the new stuff, which is what I recommend.

Will Plasti Dip hide imperfections?
Plasti dip is rather thick and should be able to conceal most scratches, however gouges and severe scratches may still be visible under certain lighting conditions. Simply apply 4-5 coats of paint on the surface, and if it still looks horrible, you can always peel it off. Generally speaking, the more plasti dip you have sprayed on, the thicker it will be and the simpler it will be to peel off.
How long to let Plasti Dip dry between coats?
To apply additional coats, let 10 – 30 minutes for drying time (until the paint is dry to the touch). It is advised that you apply a minimum of 5 coats for the optimum performance and easiest removal.
