Painted Surfaces:

As painted surfaces age, the color often fades and the surface may become 'chalky'.  This process is commonly referred to as 'weathering'.  Both Original Plasticoat and Thickened Plasticoat rejuvenate and protect weathered interior and exterior painted surfaces, and protect freshly painted surfaces from weathering.  Specifically, when applied to a surface that has become faded and chalky, if there is still a reasonable amount of paint substance remaining, these products will partially to fully restore the surface to its original color and luster.  The extent to which a surface is restored will depend on its condition at the time it is treated. 

When applied to either recently painted, or older, weathered surfaces, both products will significantly extend the life of the paint.  They will not crack, chip, peel, or yellow and will inhibit the paint from cracking, chipping, or peeling.  Consequently, as the coating itself weathers, as evidenced by a loss of luster and/or renewed color fading, a fresh coat may be applied to the clean surface with no additional surface preparation.  While both products may be used for this application, Original Plasticoat offers greater surface area coverage, quicker application, and a shorter curing time than Thickened Plasticoat.  However, Thickened Plasticoat does produce a thicker final film.

Plasticoat Paint should be used when a different color or a fresh coat of paint is desired.  Plasticoat Paint is anti-mold, anti-chalk, anti-fade, and will not crack, chip, peel, or yellow with age.

Stains and marks clean up much easier on surfaces that are coated with these products.  The sealing properties of Original Plasticoat and Thickened Plasticoat prevent 'blemishes' from penetrating and absorbing into the surface of the underlying paint.  Usually a damp cloth or sponge is all that is required to clean up most common types of pen and marker ink, dyes, paint, grease, oil, food stains, dirt, and even some acids.  For more persistent stains, use a mild detergent and water solution.  Avoid using abrasive cleaning products, mineral spirits, and alcohols.  Note:  Some types of felt markers contain MEK, which is a strong solvent capable of etching the surface of the coating.  Etching makes cleanup more difficult and sometimes not possible.

Suggested uses include, but are not limited to: drywall, doors, molding, cabinets, garage doors, siding, stucco, etc.  Two coats are recommended.  Original Plasticoat and Thickened Plasticoat usually cure to a shiny final finish.  Plasticoat Paint is available in high-gloss, satin, and matte finishes.  Before applying to the entire surface, prepare a small, inconspicuous test site to assure desired results.  Also, residual chalky paint material should be removed from the substrate prior to application.  Whereas a surface coated with a semi or high gloss paint should first be sanded or chemically treated before repainting, G-Plasticoat (including Plasticoat Paint) may be painted over without any surface preparation other than a simple cleaning.

G-Plasticoat is not recommended on the high-luster finishes on automobiles because it often does not wet evenly, and often does not enhance either the color or the luster.  Automotive Plasticoat, which will be specifically formulated for application on automobile exteriors, will be available soon.
