DID YOU KNOW?... THE HISTORY OF PLASTI DIP
Plasti Dip was invented back in the 70s as a way for people to dip their tool handles and get a grip. But since the beginning, people have found all kinds of other uses for it—like the way our Dipheads have taken it and turned it into a DIY automotivecustom innovation. Here’s a short list of some things that might surprise you as having been dipped:
- The Golden Gate Bridge
- Holiday Inn Hotel Pools
- Martial Arts Equipment
- Meat processing plants
- Medical positioning pads used in surgery
- Hundreds of home and DIY projects around the world.
Plasti Dip has this great dipping legacy because its the original, peelable, flexible, insulating, non-slip, durable, rubber coating. And while imitators have cropped up over the years, we’re still here, working hard to keep up by developing and manufacturing the highest quality coatings, sealants and adhesives on the market—including all the colors and enhancers of Plasti Dip that you love so very much.
