I heard that if you spray clear on it that it just gets absorbed by the Plasti-dip.

hes right i watched a video on youtube where a guy was testing plastidip and sprayed it with a clear coat because i was curious about this too and it just absorbs the clear coat. i think that its somewhat porous so a clear coat wouldnt work on it. like everyone above said its super durable i put it on my car last year and it made it through buffalos winter which is pretty impressive seeing as we get insane amounts of snow here and the roads are salty from the end of November though april and part of may... at the worst if it does come off or looks bad peel it off and respray a can is $10

Re: Clear Coat for protection over plastidip?

yeah thanks.. im just going to skip the clearcoat. i was just wondering if a little piece were to get scuffed up would i be able to just touch it up with plasti dip over the plasti dip that was already applied? or would i need to peel it all off to touch up a few spots

You can just touch it up, it blends pretty good!
