Whitening Rubber Hand Guards


Recommended Posts

Hey guys!

 

I've searched high and low trying to find some type of thread that might offer some tips on whitening the rubber hand guards.

 

I don't remember the material exactly, I think they're white silicone. I got in on a group order and I don't remember the maker. I know she was renowned for her hand guards here at the time!

 

Anyways, I've noticed that over time they've yellowed a little bit though. I was wondering if anyone has had any luck with some whitening techniques?

 

I was thinking, worst case scenario, I could just paint them with latex paint, but I'd rather not.

 

Thanks in advance! Also included a picture below to show how bad they've gotten. :(

I used some screen printing paint from a craft supplier, once coated they are set by placing in a warm oven for 10 minutes http://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/24545-how-to-paint-handguards-another-option/

Latex will tend to yellow over time, Justin.  Like you mentioned you can always paint them using latex paint, as was done in the films and how I did mine.  Be sure to clean them thoroughly first.  I sell the bright white silicone ones, which will never, ever yellow if you are interested.  Here is the thread:  http://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/35702-fs-latex-and-silicone-hand-guards-for-level-3/

This is good to know! I'll certainly look into a set! Thanks Joe.
