Concrete fans rejoice, Plastikote Suede has returned, Praise be.

 

Here on their UK website,

 

http://plasti-kote.co.uk/inspiration

 

 

And available on eBay,

 

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/122170687634

 

 

cheaper on Amazon,

 

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Plasti-Kote-Spray-Paint-Plastic-Light-x/dp/B01M09AZOU

 

and no doubt elsewhere.

 

All three original colours appear to be offered, tan, mid-brown and chocolate. The label is new but I've used it and the formulation seems exactly the same.

Excellent news. It makes a very good concrete finish for things like fences.

This is a good concrete colour then I take it ?

 

"Concrete-in-a-can", Rob. Finely textured, and pretty much bang on the right colour for new, raw concrete. I have dozens of Exactoscale 4mm concrete sleeper bases and a handful of Peco O gauge ones to paint. The thought of brush-painting that lot is the reason it hasn't got done yet. A blast of grey primer and then a few minutes work with a can of "Suede" and the job is done. It's not the only way to do it, but it's certainly a timesaver.

Just an update - the cans that I ordered arrived this morning by next-day delivery and they are just as I remember them. As Arthur says, the formulation is unchanged, as is the colour. At £3.99 per 400ml and just 99p for delivery, it really is a steal. In fact I just went back and ordered some more... Get it while you can.

Mine have also just been delivered by Hermes.

All good, and I might also get some more for stock before Pete clears them out!

A very positive experience with Brooklyn Trading too - very good communication and quick delivery.

 

Wonder if they've any left... :)

Any idea regarding shelf life of this paint please?

 

I've probably got through about 18-20 cans of Suede before they "disappeared" from sale last year. In that time, I've had one blocked nozzle on a part-used can that defied any attempt to clear it. Some of my cans had been bought about 3 years previously, they were fine after being in the shed for that time. Bringing them up to room temperature and giving them a more than thorough shake was all that was needed.

A tenner delivery for 3 cans to Spain, I'll see if I can find a stockist somewhere out here hopefully.

Stock up well Pete and bring them over with you is the best idea, I'll have a few off you!!

 

Mike.

If you get stuck Mike, I'd be happy to. Assuming aerosols in the hold baggage won't cause me to get the "rubber glove" treatment at Alicante aeropuerto...
