Truck beds can degrade quickly if you use them for frequent work projects. If you plan on using the bed for regular hauling, think about the protection it needs to make it last as long as possible. Here are 10 reasons you need to consider a spray-on bed liner for your truck.
One of the most important reasons to consider a spray-on liner is its long lifespan. While drop-in liners can help spread rust and corrosion, spray-on liners do the opposite.
The spray-on solution is lighter weight and will not produce the same noise generated by a traditional bed liner. It’s usually quieter and lasts much longer than plastic or rubber drop-in bed liners since it isn’t affected by vibration and wind.
Both the military and industrial factories use spray-on methods, which can handle heavy duty wear and tear and even protect equipment from getting banged up. If you haul rock, sand, and gravel, and want the truck to maintain a decent appearance, then spray-on is the way to go.
One of the reasons a drop-in bed liner leads to rust and corrosion is that it traps water between the liner and the bed. With a spray-on bed liner you avoid that problem. The watertight seal prevents condensation from getting trapped, preventing rust and corrosion.
The spray-on method works well with steel if you have prepared the surface properly. The Rhino Linings brand particularly uses an effective epoxy mixture that provides strong adhesion and protective qualities.
Since some brands offer a nationwide warranty, certain repairs will be free or low cost. If a vehicle stays in the same place for long periods it can accumulate rust and corrosion, but the spray-on bed liner helps minimize this issue.
The spray can be used to cover up dents, as well as over tailgates to cover up scratches and missing paint.
The spray can be applied quickly, and dries instantly. Long lasting quality, however, depends on how well the materials were prepared at the time of installation. It’s always best to work with seasoned experts who understand that proper installation is key to long-term durability.
The spray-on bed liner product is versatile too, and isn’t just for truck beds. It can be used for other purposes, such as protecting bedrails, rocker panels and fenderwells. One of the qualities of the spray that makes it so versatile is the variable textures you can choose.
Spray-on bed liners increase the resale value due to its protective qualities. That’s definitely something all truck owners can appreciate.
