I didn't have to, but I had been doing some work for a friend on a 2001 Lexus with a blown engine - as in blown up. He gave up on the car and took it away. My tools were grimy, it was late, and I didn't want to do anything with them till the next day. So I left them overnight to soak into all the little embossed words, etc. I had cleaned the pliers with a isopropyl alcohol on a rag before and didn't realize Plasti-Dip is apparently solvent based . The Stoddard solvent I normally use in my tank to clean stuff didn't work well with it.
I'm still looking for something better, but am picky about it being green. I've found some heat shrink that is tool grade, rather than electrical grade, but it's not been available in green in the size I would need. No-one seems to have a dip product, either, that isn't solvent-based. Ah, well, the problems of a picky old man...

|Buckeye Bob||why did you leave your tools and pliers soak in a solvent over night ? i thought you just had to dip your handles in the plastic dip and that would be all you had to do.i am new to this plastic dip,so i am asking questions.|

Rubberized tool coating
Is there a better product than Plasti-Dip to coat tool handles. I used that to coast the handles on a pair of pliers. I had left it with some other tools to soak overnight in some Stoddard solvent. When I pulled them out, I had a shiny new pair of pliers, with a thin coat of colored sludge on the bottom of the dipping tray. I would like something a little more chemical impervious.
