How To Apply Wurth Plastic Dye

- Ensure temperature is above 7°C when applying (and storing product)
- Moisten the sponge (provided with Wurth Plast PT) with water and clean the plastic parts with its rough side.
- Then put plastic dye on the smooth side of the moist sponge and apply evenly on your plastic parts.
- Remove excess dye from trims or lacquered surfaces immediately.
- Once dried, plastic dye can be dissolved by applying fresh moist plastic dye.
One note of caution; you need to be mindful that Wurth plastic dye is sensitive to humidity during application. Thus you need to ensure the part to be treated is completely dry prior to application and remains dry until the dye is cured.
Wurth Plastic Dye Reviews
Wurth Bumper Plastic Dye Very happy with product. My Mk2 Golf GTi rear bumper was looking the worse for wear. I had tried most all other recommended fixes to no avail. This was recommended to me. The finish was very impressive. It does need a couple of coats though. Richard – Northants
Totally works Ive used many products in the past that claim “bumpers like new”,but believe me,this really does work. Just did both bumpers on my sons 20 year old Nova ( Both well stained ) and they have come up like the day it came out the factory…don’t hesitate –
Easy application. bumpers look like new Very easy to put on and even comes off paintwork (if removed straight away) if you mess up a bit. Hope it lasts, time will tell. Highly recommended Mark – Jersey

Unfortunately, we find that the Wurth products are not always as easily available in the US as in UK/Europe. However, there is a very strong competitor which I am delighted to say is much more widely available in both the US/Canada and also UK/Europe. These products are from Solution Finish and are available in both Black and Grey, both of which have rave reviews:
