Where To Use
Over the top of Brillo or TRG spray, or directly on a product. We have tested it on many items and finishes, but you should also spot test.... always spot test.
We expect many customers to use this on car dash boards, boat dashboards, vinyl seating, many many plastic items, providing a really professional looking finish.

See our Project Gallery, where customers have posted images of their projects.
How To Use
Don't forget, whenever using a new product, or a product you're familiar with on a new surface, you should spot test first in an inconspicuous area, and ensure you are fully satisfied with the finish prior to undergoing the entire project.

First of all, you can have any finish you want, we have every product you need available to produce the exact result you want, and we've tested them all for compatibility too, so rest assured, if you buy the products from us, on our website, you're in good hands.
Most of the time Vinyl Dye Sprays dry to a satin finish. Rarely, but it can, change depending on the object being sprayed. As such we always recommend spot testing to completion to check you're 100% happy with the finish.
If you want a matt finish, ideal for Car Dashboards and making Vinyl Door Cards have their original finish. Adds extra protection too. Use our Matt Spray that we've tested to be compatible with all our Vinyl Dye Sprays here.
If you want a high gloss ginish, ideal for boat seating and many other settings, it adds a super shine and extra protection too. Use our High Gloss Spray that we've tested to be compatible with our Vinyl Dye Sprays here.
This does vary depending on your from and to colours slightly. For example, if you're going from Black to White, you'll get less coverage just because you'll really want to cover every microscopic part covered equally since you'll notice the underlying colour.
If you're going from a Beige to White, or from White to Red, it will take less, just because if you miss a part with one of your mist layers, you won't really notice, honest, we've done hundreds of projects, so it does make a difference.
So take these guides as a 'worst case' to 'best case' coverage and that should explain the differences.
A single 150ml can, best case scenario will cover up to 2.5 squre meters in a situation where you're touching up the colour for example, or just moving from white to an off white.
For most situations you should think a single 150ml can will cover up to 1 square meter completely to the standard that will last many years and remain flexible and durable.
Taking the same explanation from above, a 400ml can will cover up 2.5 square meters completely, or around 6 square meters of touch ups or similar colours.
400ml cans are available in a small selection of colours including Black and White click here to see them.

There is no real difference between the two brands of Vinyl Dye spray. They both produce fantastic results. We only have both brands since sometimes their colours differ, and other times we can supply greater quantities in one compared to the other depending on import delays etc.
For your information, we've been supplying Vinyl Dye sprays for oever 10 years now, and noticed that people with Car and Vehicle related projects prefer the TRG branded Vinyl Dye. Where as Movie, Wardrobe and Prop designers prefer the Brillo branded Vinyl Dye. Although universally, people choose the colour first, brand second.
Full returns details are here; essentially just send back any completely unused items back in a resalable condition within 30 days. You can send items back within 100 days but there are some small restocking fees involved.
Our Vinyl Dye Sprays work with fantastic results on vinyl, leather, many plastics, most rubbers, canvas and most carpets. Our Vinyl Dye Sprays will also colour wood and fabrics, but they will change the texture. Whatever you colour, even Vinyl, we highly recommend a spot test regardless.
When deciding to complete your project, thinking what your alternatives are, usually leads to Vinyl Dye being your best option. Paint wont flex when dry, so will certainly crack and standard clothing dye can't penetrate.
This makes Vinyl Dye your highest, most likley chance of succeeding with your project; especially when you are not sure what exactly the material is. It's also inexpensive, quick to spot test and has a great range of colours too.
Our Vinyl Dye sprays have been used to renew and recolour many 1000's of hood and tonneau covers, not just for cars, but lorries and even canal boat hood covers. Each one with fantastic results and ended with a super happy customer.
Take a look at the examples below, each one from a past customer, each one called 6-12 months later to check how it's wearing, and each one saying something along the lines of "exactly the same as the day I finished spray". One gentleman called 5 years later for an extra can to touch up an area he repaired; he was thrilled with the longevity and insisted had he not ripped this part, it would last many years to come more.
An example of a roll up roof recoloured using our Vinyl Dye sprays. This folding roof was originally beige, then completely coloured in our Grey, followed by our Scarlet, White and Blue Vinyl Dye sprays.
An example of a car tonneau cover completely recoloured using our Vinyl Dye sprays.

Many customers have requested this and they have resolved it by decanting the spray into a glass jar and then gently dabbing the dye onto the item.
As an example see this 1938 Austin 7 Ruby seating. Here one of our super happy customers needed just the piping on a seat dying to match the brand new vinyl they just had fitted. (They were also astonished to find the piping was white!)
If you're dying a real leather item, then please look at our Easy Dye Kits which are sponge on liquid dyes.
If you're simply restoring the colour, such as a faded patch, of real leather and not changing it, our Universal Cleaner then Leather Balms are best. These leather balms are wipe on and buff off. See here.
For Vinyl, or if you're not sure if it's real leather, then our Vinyl Dye sprays are really the best choice, even if it means dismantling the item, you'll end up with a long lasting, durable, UV resistant waterproof and flexible even when finished colour. As you can see in the above example, they can also be dabbed on, just be sure to spot test your approach and make sure you're happy with the finish and durability before undergoing the entire project.
You can use good qulity masking tape and you will achive perfectly clean lines with our Vinyl Dye sprays. Some customers have also used 'line tape' for larger projects. Take a look at this great example, where the grey base, red, white and blue are all sprayed onto of this flexible vinyl roof to wonderful effect.
You can also construct a template to achive the same, many people have done just this. Take a look at the below example where the lettering is from a template.
Tip: You'll need to leave the dye to dry for 24 hours if you are applying masking tape to an already dyed part. i.e. putting the tape on wet spray. After 24hours you can put tape on a sprayed area and it will not impact the finish at all.
