Information on suede-like paints sought.





2000

Hello, I am investigating two part, spray on rubbery/suede-like paints for use on sand cast aluminum parts. They are commonly used in automotive interiors to give components a warm tactile quality. Red Spot produces one called Soft Feel and Sherwin Williams makes two - HydroSwade and SoftSwade. I would like to find out if anyone knows of other manufactures of similar products and/or if anyone can share their experiences regarding wear and abrasion with these types of products. Any information you could forward would be appreciated.

Thanks much,
