Product Description


Many older interiors and components were finished with a wrinkle effect coat which produce texture finish/ crinkle or crackle finish/ hammer finish - whatever you want to call!

Now you can reproduce the same finish in a few hours from an aerosol spray can. Great for early M.G. dashboards, Ferrari and Lotus cam covers, electrical components, old radio cabinets, trim pieces, gauges, etc

VHT High Temperature Wrinkle Plus leaves a distinctive custom crinkle finish that you both see and feel. The crackle finish is extremely durable, long lasting and chemical resistant. It is temperature resistant to 350°F (177°C) and is ideal for adding a touch of personal styling to almost any metal surface.

VHT Wrinkle Plus resists colour fading, grease, degreasers and severe weather conditions. This tough durable finish is extremely resistant to rust, corrosion, chipping and cracking.

Paint directly onto the bare metal to achieve the best effect (some customers have mentioned the paint will bond better with a coat of Self Etch Primer - but that might reduce the wrinkle finish)

Dries within 24 hrs of applying (does not wrinkle when cold, try to use in a warm atmosphere and when humidity is less than 60%)

Ideal for: Engine Accessory Brackets, Cam Covers, Valve Covers, Metal Dashboards, Glove Boxes, Starters, Door Panels, Shifters, Alternators, Firewalls amongst others.

Colours available: Black, Red, Grey, Blue

1 aerosol can covers approximately 12-14 sq. feet.

Excellent Product - I followed the instructions and it did as advertised.Review by Mark
I cleaned the aluminium with swarfega and then sanded it with 120 grit and wiped clean with a meths soaked rag. Spraying was done on a warm summers day. I etch primed with Eastwood black etch primer and followed this 2 hours later with 3 coats of the VHT Wrinkle paint. After 2 hours I baked it in the oven for an hour at 200 degrees celcius. This resulted in a perfect uniform wrinkle finish - although the oven did retain an odour and required cleaning to keep the peace! (Posted on 01/07/2016)
Great resultReview by Herc
Friends were sceptical that I could get a wrinkle finish on my aluminium cam covers, after their own failures in the past on other projects. How wrong they were!

I did clean the surface with degreaser, and I did keep the covers in the moderately warm kitchen, but other than that I just sprayed on three thick coats, five minutes apart as on the instructions. Five hours later I had a beautiful, consistent wrinkle.

The paint does dry very slowly, as they explain on the tin.
