kfae asked: Hey Princess Marty! I read from Raina on the Mernetwork that latex perma wet never cures properly and can peel off paint. The post comes up f you search "perma wet" and look under the "blank tails" thread.
That’s a definite concern, and no mistake! :( But I believe what Raina was saying is that putting PermaWet over silicone causes it to peel off, since PermaWet is akin to a latex product and will not stick well to silicone (nothing really sticks to silicone, except more silicone!). PermaWet is formulated specifically to stick to latex and urethane rubbers. It’s not recommended for silicone, which I think is why it causes the peeling problem that Raina mentions. It’s definitely a bummer! :\
Luckily, I used it on a latex tail, not a silicone one. But thanks for mentioning it! I’m sure others will find this helpful info when they want to start their own silicone tails! :D
Yup. Permawet isn’t good for silicone. Plus you wont be able to repaint your silicone if you put it on. I have a silicone tail with perma wet on it. It sucks, Perfectly fine for latex
