Gold Paint Rubbing Off


I have an 89 and Returns style belt but when I wear it, it leaves giant gold paint streaks on my armor, that is very difficult to remove. What, if any thing, can I do to stop this from happining? It's making it completely unwearable!

Re: Belt Paint Issues


The answer for the most part is nothing. We all deal with the gold rubbing off just try a little saddle soap or alcohol to get it off.

Re: Belt Paint Issues


yes, you can wipe the belt down with armorall to help keep the pours sealed and the pigment in the material, it will also help keep it clean and will take some of the pigment thats already going to come off off then

but there isnt really anything you can do to keep it 100% from rubbing off

after all, friction is friction

Re: Belt Paint Issues


I like your suggestion, Shadowbat69, unless clear Plasti-Dip has the same solvents as the opaque and the belt is urethane. (Black Plasti-Dip, e.g., does not bond with urethane.)

This BK2 belt had urethane segments superglued to Industrial-Velcro-surfaced metal compartments. A permanent solution turned out to be painting the urethane tops and then coating with epoxy (that I use with making e-K parts, available from [sign in to see URL]). Another approach is to use golden auto flex-bumper paint, which does bond with urethane but which is very expensive and doesn't seem to be available in quite the right colors.

Here's a BK3 with epoxy-Kevlar and epoxy-satin segment surfaces, with the epoxy sealing in brassy pigment that was brushed on first.

EASIEST AND CHEAPEST SOLUTION (added by edit): There is only one primer I've found that best bonds to urethane without turning it gooey, and that can easily be painted over with anything. Get GUNZE SANGYO Mr. White Surface 1000 (Spray). It's available from [sign in to see URL] and is Catalogue No. GUB511. It may not be listed on their website, but you can call them at (626)282-9408.
