plating, anodizing, & finishing Q&As since 1989
Information on suede-like paints sought.
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,Kate McLeod, Industrial Designer
