The results above are based on exhaustive investigation and provide clear comparisons of actual spray on truck bed liner products sold currently.

 


 

 1 Actual Spray-on Bedliner Coverage

Proper Standard Bedliner Coverage is a minimum of 63 mils (1/16 inch thick). For 10+ years bed protection 125 mil (1/8 inch) is advised. Most companies, DIY & Dealership vendors claim a coverage rate that does not come close to proper protection. In DIY deals one gallon of any product is a volume which covers under 25 square feet @ 63 mil or 12 ½ sq ft @ 125 mil. .

Don’t be misled by coverage rates claimed by some bedliner companies. In SLC’s comparison chart, we have provided the company coverage claim along with the actual coverage provided based on 63 mils. Your choice of truck bedliner thickness is under your own control not some false claim. See our Truck Bed Coverage Calculator to properly estimate your truck bed coating requirements. Lastly, don’t be fooled by claims of higher quality; while strength matters there are few substitutes for thickness; i.e. ACTUAL QUANTITY of sprayable formula.

 

  


 

2 Truck Bedliner Coating Types

“Polyurea” is the only true truck bed liner of high quality.  One Part Paints, Urethanes or Epoxies are not “elastomeric”.  Elastomeric Polyurea is a flexible, strong, non-brittle material required for extremely high loads, friction; w/ highest tensile strength (1600 to 4400 PSI).

Polyurethane or Urethane are used here as “bedliner”. These can be quality as paints but are low in tensile or “tear” strength.  The better, even necessary bedliner-type characteristic is tear @ 100 mil thick This is unavailable in any urethane or polyurethane above.

Epoxy is used as stiff sealer, floor coating, as adhesive or softened to a general coating. Lower in tear PSI than above coatings. Here as bedliner no epoxy is “elastic” enough to handle loads or high stress.

NOTE:  Most or all above use liters, liquid ounces, weights, “parts”, square feet or # of truck beds to quantify contents of kits see http://spray-lining.net/how-much-bedliner-truck/  reveals facts & truth on that form of misrepresented advertising.
