Re: Soft touch interior paint,grey (aartis)

It is commercially available, but the process requires a high heat cycle for the curing process, I believe. Not something that can be done successfully outside of a very controlled manufacturing process.

I have not had an issue with my 10 year old GTI's soft touch parts. The key is to not get oils and solvents on the surfaces. It appears food grease/oil (too many McDs) and solvents like insect repellent and some hand lotions will damage the surface.
