Finally got some time to try this stuff out. Its only new, not really on the market yet. Just got a little from the supplier to play with. You could paint it on either your Scalextric track or your new board MDF track.
Rubber based, small pieces of crushed recycled rubber imbedded in a paintabe grey/white coloured easy to use water clean up.



Looks good, very soft to touch and with the rubber surface, it should help protect your cars paintwork.. a little more.



Grip is good, not too much, tyres should wear out a little less.

Oh,... and apparently its just great for waterproofing. Lets hope thats how they market it anyway. Not like they'll make much out of us slotters.

Sorry lads, sufficent distractions have prevented me from posting a response.
Monaro is the closest. He's referring to rubber based tile glue,.. which this isn't. Looks just like it in the photo, so good call Monaro. This is a substance which forms up a waterproof membrane floor substrate which prevents moisture from weeping through and rotting the usbframe timbers and floors. Once the substrate is cured, the glue Monaro is referring to is simply plonked on top of this substrate speard out and tiles then applied .



The close up photo here is roughly about an inch square so as you can see its more like melting ice cream than a chunky glue. It expands and contracts with the ambient, is UV resistant( its used on outdoor steps as slip resistant) and is impossible to scape off.

Finishes off easy, everything washes up in water. The product is marketed as a "tanking" type waterproofing gear, no doubt it has many names. This particular stuff is still being sent around for testing on different applications, doubt any of the makers envisioned slot car tracks, although the guy who wholesales it said, " Here see how this goes for a track surface". Should be released soon, will post proper name then.

Hello Bad Bob,

There is no need to raise your voice so please DO NOT SHOUT !!!

Because that is how it is regarded when you type everything in capital letters.


Have fun in the slotcommunity!
