Imagine, if you will, a pair of house shoes from the past (at least here in Germany): what you have is thick wool socks with leather soles that extend around the sides or thick wool socks with rubber pimples or nubs on the sole that serve as protection against slipping and sliding on smooth tiled floors or the like. Latex pimples is a medium viscosity liquid with which you can create your own house shoes. The coat application is sturdy and abrasion resistant, the adherence, especially in the case of textiles, is excellent (except perhaps for some of the new, modern smooth functional fabrics with a high percentage of plastic in them). This Latex pimple can, for example, be applied to smooth surfaces in sequential dots on the underside of devices and objects in order to add a coating, a buffer or slightly elastic feet to them.
This latex can be applied directly out of the bottle or, for somewhat larger areas, painted on with a brush. Particularly in the case of large area applications, you should expect a certain amount of shrinkage – for example, textiles will tend to contract slightly.
What immediately comes to mind are handy, rubberized tool handles or frayed rope ends that have been bound together with a rubber coating - Plasti Dip is a synthetic rubber coating material for indoor and outdoor use. It can be sprayed, applied with a brush or applied by the dipping method whereby a strongly adhering and abrasion-resistant coating is produced. This allows you to "rubberize" any number of things by coating them and making them easier to handle or to use it for sealing purposes or for bundling purposes. It can often be found being discussed in model making forums because of its insulation properties, not only in the sense that objects can be made (salt-) waterproof but that they can be electrically insulated as well (up to 60 watt output). In addition, the coating is resistant to acids and alkaloids. It will remain elastic even in the face of extreme temperatures and will not crack or tear. Once cured, it has no smell and is even food-safe.
LATEX PIMPLES, it must be said, is a good alternative product - it is kind of the handicrafts version of Plasti Dip and it is also available in a convenient size. There is not, however, as much technical data available as there is for Plasti Dip.
