Default Clear Coating Over Plasti-dipped Rims

Ok so today I'm plasti-dipping my rims and I want it to stand up to winter's conditions. I have a lot of clear coat from when I painted my calipers so I figured I'll just reuse it. Will spraying this clear coast on the rims still allow me to peel off the plasti-dip at a laster time? Logically, the answer would be yes because the plasti-dip is the only thing touching the rims but I wasn't sure if clear coat would change the dip's properties or anything. I had read about this happening to some poeple on other car forums. I don't know, not a chem major. Thanks

Here's the link to the clear coat:

I used a matte clear and did about 2 coats. I had to peel a wheel and redo it and I had no issues

KDM, kinda late there but thanks. j3, it came out ok. I did 4 coats and it looks great from >6 feet away. The closer you get, the more see my mistakes of missing certain parts of the rim (inbetween the spokes). But, I'm going to take it off and redo it in april or may. It's a learning experience sorta thing...might as well give it a shot.

Yeah, matte finish. 2 days after I did it I was on the highway going 70mph and a HUGE tumbleweed comes out infront of me (I live in NM). I try to avoid it but it ends up hitting my front left corner so a part of the rim got nicked up a little. Other than that, no. Plasti-dip is durable.

Yes, it will mess up the peeling process!! Long story short, car wash rubbed my rim on railing, peeled edge of rim. I'm having a very hard time removing the plastidip/duplicolor combo off the rim. It's breaking off into small pieces and basically has to be chiseled off with a razor blade, thus scratching the original rim in the process. I'm very disappointed.

FYI: I used 2 heavy coats of plastidip, 3 coats of duplicolor, and 2 coats of sealer.

I don't know your process of removing it, but it will naturally come off in tiny pieces in somewhat cold weather. I would try using a heat gun or even a hair dryer. That's how I got mine off, it came off fairly easily and I had 2 coats of clear coat over mine. But yes, it took little longer with the clear coat, but with the heat gun it wasn't too bad.

you used them in that order right? pastidip, duplicolor, and then sealer? what kind of sealer
the other thing i would have tried was going to a carwash with a good high pressured hot pressure washer, and go to town. id never have tried to use a razor blade on it

I think it was in ok weather. Not too cold. Was around 65 or so degrees when I was trying to remove it. Didn't think to heat it up and try peeling. I'll keep that in mind in case this instance ever comes my way again. LOL.

Yeah, that was the order I went. The sealer was the Duplicolor Clear Coat Sealer. I don't know if the high powered washer would of done anything. It was stuck on there pretty tight.

Wow thanks. Wish I could of seen this sooner. I used 2 coats of plastidip, a couple of white(then green later on) and some clear coats. I messed up on a rim and it did not peel easily. Between me and a friend we "rubbed it off" Rubbing with your fingers back and forth works extremely well while utilizing a heat gun temporarily before running it and while. But you will get blisters from rubbing. Ask a friend or two to help you peel the rim in the same fashion it helps so much! Also using goobegone wipes with force will thin out the paint/dip mix and make it easier!! Ad the more Plastidip base coat the better.

I bought the plasti-dip wheel kit, which comes with the cans of base coat, the actual color, and a gloss top coat. Doing it today- post pictures after!
