Anti-UV trampoline paint

A simple question:
1. If you painted yours, what paint did you use?
2. Would you use it again?

Re: Anti-UV trampoline paint

I have not done this myself, but have heard of people painting their polyester tramps with acrylic paint. You might try contacting West Coast Netting to see what they use on their netting as they offer it in white and several colors. I am still searching for a coating that will work on dyneema, but suspect I am doomed to disappointment.

Let us know if you find anything that will hold-up to the flexing.

Ivan,


You will probably find it at West Marine, right next to the Chrome Muffler Bearings.

Re: Anti-UV trampoline paint

Well, I was thinking someone might've tried Yale Maxijacket, and wanted to see how much it marks whatever white pants come in contact with it.

And maybe find tip on getting a gallon of it cheap...

Nice, Steve, good to hear from you! Trust all is well. Would love some advice on my Lithium install. And not on the Dragonfly either!

Re: Anti-UV trampoline paint

I painted my Net Systems Dyneema nets with Clark & Kensington exterior satin paint about a year ago and have been pleased. Sub-30N latitude.

You mean just the external house paint?
And it did not flake and peel under stretch?

Re: Anti-UV trampoline paint

Yes, the house paint.
No, it has not flaked. It rather was absorbed into the fibres of the netting, actually. The nice thing about Dyneema netting is that it doesn't stretch (or not much). I expect the failure mode will involve chalking, whenever that happens.

Net paint is merely latex paint, as best I can tell, so why not?

Re: Anti-UV trampoline paint

My nets are looking good still and are 21 years old. They have spent a fair bit of time in the tropics and where I live they get a fair bit of nasty sun in the summer (NSW Australia). I keep a good eye on them and they are still in good nick.

On my previous boat I replaced nets 3 times in 7 years. I use black cod end fishing nets. Black is better at reflecting or dealing with UV. I would suggest anyone buy black nets if possible to avoid needing to paint them.

I like Cod end too. Easy to tie and hold onto, economical and strong as well.

Re: Anti-UV trampoline paint

In looking for anti-UV and chafe coating for my synthetic standing rigging, the biggest discovery was TrueKote CS 100. It seems perfect:


Chemline, the manufacturer of TrueKote CS 100, has a $1,000 minimum order for new customers. That works out to about 6 gallons.

I think I’d only need 1-3 gallons (may do the trampoline nets with it too). So need 1-3 others to split the order.

If anyone in New England is up for a group buy, please PM me. Target delivery mid-April. Please spread the word.

Thanks, I may give that a try. My Net Systems Dyneema nets are 5 years old now and the coating they came with is mostly gone.

Re: Anti-UV trampoline paint

Iím going to try rolling on my F31 tramps Inland Marine Topside Paint which is used to restore inflatable boats. Highly flexible and UV resistant. Iíve used the product on an inflatable and itís great. In fact, Iím considering using a coating of that on my new inflatable in lieu of chaps.

Re: Anti-UV trampoline paint

i am painting my dyneema with latex paint i got $3 a can because they discount the paint they mixed wrong

i cant say it's ideal but I figure it will protect the rope from the uv at least somewhat.
