Chlorination has become a huge thread recently and has centred on latex. It certainly enhances the latex making it more slippery and maintenance free.
I have several rubber lined cotton, nylon or satin mackintoshes that are slightly less slippery than when they were new and I want to try Chlorinating them.
A friend tells me that they are coated by a different process from the manufacture of latex. A certain amount of powder is incorporated into the rubber when it is made. This gradually eases out to the surface to keep it from becoming sticky, but over time this maybe it gets used up.
Do you think this has happened to mine because it is definitely not as smooth and slippery as a new rubber lined mackintosh?
I am wondering if there is a way of Chlorinating rubberlined mackintoshes???
It would bleach the material . . . but I am not concerned about that if it would improve the soft rubber lining and make it smooth again, like it improves latex
Incidenally I have a bright blue mackintosh that I would like to dye or re-colour somehow to black or a dark colour.
Is there a way of doing it?:uk:
