Liquid latex on cattle panels?
I was reading a book on building your own greenhouse and hot beds with various materials.
Two of the suggestions were galvanized pipe and rebar. The author said wherever the plastic film rubs on metal, a hole will appear. He suggested covering the metal with rubber or foam tubing.
All the materials I could find would be pretty expensive. Then I thought of that latex used to dip tool handles in.
I am thinking of using a small roller to roll this material onto the metal where it would touch the film.
Has anyone done anything like this?
My first thought was to roll the latex on the side of the panels that would be on the outside, then arch them into place. Then I wondered if bending the panels would stretch the latex too much.
My second thought was to arch the panels into place, then roll the latex on the outer surfaces.
