A high-quality truck bed liner is the best way to keep a truck in good repair. Trucks without any kind of coating or liner are unprotected against the weather and heavy-duty use, making them targets for rusting, denting, and paint chipping. Whether you want to improve the longevity of your vehicle, or if you offer truck bed coating as part of your auto body services, you’ll find top-of-the-line coatings, coating kits, and mixing supplies here at Auto Body Toolmart.
Depending on what the truck is used for and how much time it spends exposed to the elements, you’ll want to consider different truck bed coating and liner features. A more texturized liner like the USC Defender-Pro Epoxy Truck Bed Liner will be forgiving of defects and errors, and also stand up to heavier wear and tear. Tinted truck bed liners can be matched to virtually any color or finish. And specialty protectants might be needed when the truck is exposed to the sun for long periods of time.
Finding the Right Truck Bed Liner
For DIYers and one-time usage, the best approach to applying a truck bed coating is to purchase an all-in-one spray bed liner kit like the SEM Tintable Truck Bed Liner Kit or the Dupli-Color Truck Bed Coating Kit. U-Pol Raptor Bed Liner Kits also offer a full lineup of the base and hardeners you need to apply the coating, but they do require you purchase the necessary guns, rollers, and brushes.
At the auto body shop level, you may want to look into options like Dupli-Color’s Truck Bed Coating, which comes in a gallon size that allows you to determine how much coating you need to apply. 3M’s Scotchguard Bed Liner and Autobody Coating is another popular choice, as it offers a professional spray-on coating with built-in UV protection.
