Liquid Rubber
Nov 9th, 2005 at 5:30pm
 
A new product came on the market here recently and it seems to have some applicability to woodturning.  It is called Caucho Liquido (Liquid Rubber), manufactured here under the Aero Color label, and available in a spray can or in liquid form.  It can be applied to wood, metal, plastic, etc., for use on tools to provide a non-slip surface, etc., etc.  I imagine that it was developed either in the U.S. or Europe (or somewhere else) and could be widely available there.  I doubt that it was developed here.  Quite a product.  I'm using it currently to put some "tires" on some wooden wheels that I am making.  Just thought I would report.

If it can be done, a woodworker/mechanic will figure out a way.

Hi, kidcolumbia:
It sounds very much like the product "Plasti-Dip" that I have used.

It is intended for tool handles and such, but I always used it to put grips on my darts.  Smiley  I often wondered whether it would work for rubber tires on turned wheels.

Take care
Bob

It probably is a spray version of Plasti-Grip.  Plasti-Grip liquid, not spray, I know can be used for tires if you layer it on very thinly.  I don't know about the spray.

I've seen similar products.  You can dip plier handles in it and various other tool handles.

That's Plasti-Grip.  There is also a neoprene version out there under a different name.

So, not new to the U.S. market, which I suspected, but at any rate, possibly new to some turners.  It certainly was to me. 
Was it Hemingway who said:  "There is nothing new under the sun..."

But then, what constitutes new...???

The first thought I had was putting it on the very bottom of bowls for a non skid surface.

Might be useful?
