When you say trampoline liner
is this the ring that surrounds the springs?
yes, it's about 8 inches wide and I'm not sure if it's vinyl or plastic
Its probably a vinyl type of coating that feels like plastic
plastic can get brittle fast
So there are a couple ways to go about this, and I am going to recommend you treat the piece as if it were vinyl
the caveat to the treatments is that there are products out there that promise long life and so on, but these products, depending on the quality of the piece in question can actually look good temporarily but then actually look worse over time
they can also attract dirt and other things
so with this, the type of treatment that i always recommend for things like this are actually water based...but as you can imagine a soaking heavy rain would actually somehwat limit them
So I would recommend treating the vinyl piece as if it were part of an RV or camping setup
simply because of the amount of exposure it gets and how much time out side it spends
in other words, regular treatment is WAYYYYYY better than just trying to find a fix-all 1 time product, because they are few and far between
are you with me so far?
Do you have any marine stores nearby?
or any car care stores?
yes we do. we have two car care stores and a marine store a couple hours away
There is a product call 303 aerospace
Its HUGE in the marine community for vinyl and boat plastics
I recommend and use it as well on a bunch of different surfaces.
its a high quality water based protectant that is odorless and super easy to use
you can stop there. we just purchased a gallon of 303 this last Saturday for our cars. love the stuff and have been purchasing for years. didn't realize it would work on this.
yea its truly amazing stuff
safe on a bunch of surfaces
just keep in mind that the plastic might be a tiny bit slippery
so make sure you let people know this
i know alot actually step on it
Your other option is a product from Meguiar's called M40 Vinyl and Rubber conditioner
this is really nice stuff too - I would put it right up there with 303
M40 has a cleaner counterpart called M39
i think its heavy duty vinyl cleaner
basically you spray on, brush lightly to get off the dirt, rinse, then once the surface is try just condition it
really try to work it in and you will see better durability
we'll check out the M40 as well but try the 303. thank you so much. that's all i need you've answered my question. .
