It has superior adhesion, and wont fleck off when scratched as spraypaint tends to do. The vinyl dye does seem to requre less in the way of covering also. It bonds better to the vinyl.The main difference between Vinyl Dye and Spraypaint is that... well... one is Dye, the other is paint. In that, I mean that the paint will add a colored layer over the surface, while the Dye is intended to colour the material as in... "stain it" in some way.
Unless someone has another way to colour a grey rubber hose without the black fading and chipping away?What kind of hose? Rit dye will stain many different rubbers if you let them soak in boiling or close to boiling temperatures...
Hey, I haven't tought of that. I can't get my hands on RIT here, but would any fabric dye work?I'm using CPAP hoses on my Burgh packs. My wife (believe or not) came up with a brillaint, cheap solution---Electrical tape! Just do it in small sections, pull it taut, and you get the ribbing, and the matte finish, and it's waterproof and chaep! They sell different colors at Lowes $3.50 a roll (I need black and gold for mine--it's a Pittsburgh thing. Go Steelers!) I have tries differnet types of paint but it flakes off since the plastic in the CPAP hose is designed not to stick so bacteria doesn't grow in a hose hooked up to your lungs. My ins company sends me a new hose every month or so, so I have quite a few. : )
Its the rubber hoses used in a CPAP sleep apnea machine, my dad upgraded his and was about to throw away this long 7/8" hose...
I'll try the fabric dye tonight, won't hurt to try. How long should it remains in the hot dye water?
Thanks for the tip.
