Polyurethane Linings (Rubberizing):
Polyurethane Linings (Rubberizing) – Owned and operated by the same family that brought you spray-on polyurethane bed liners 30 years ago.
We were the first to successfully develop and apply spray-on polyurethane to the load beds of delivery vehicles.
Today we not only specialise in traditional spray-on truck bed liners but offer a range of options for the spray-on truck bed liner industry.
We continue to develop and provide exceptional polymer products and application equipment and strive to meet and exceed our customers’ service expectations.
We have also expanded our operation and offer solutions to various other industries including, construction, mining, petrochemical, farming and more
Rubberized vehicle undercoating is easy to apply.
And offers sound-cushioning as well as protection from dust, moisture, and dings or dents.
In addition to your undercarriage, rubberized undercoating is also safe to use on wheel wells.
And quarter panels, and dries to a soft rubbery finish that prevents further rust, damage, or moisture seeps.
The coating can be painted over and, if necessary for bodywork, can be easily removed with an undercoating removal spray.
Overall, rubberized coating is generally the best option for protecting your vehicle’s undercarriage
As it provides the simplest and best protective measures against rust and moisture.
The other option for undercoating your vehicle is to use a polyurethane-based sealant.
This type of vehicle undercoating is a little bit quicker and easier to apply.
Oftentimes, polyurethane undercoating will come in canisters ready to preload into an application gun.
This type of sealant works by seeping into all cracks and seams.
Displacing salt and moisture and oozing around rusty areas to bond with and protect unoxidized metal.
It also sands quickly in case you’ll need to perform bodywork and can be painted over.
On the flipside, this type of car undercoating generally requires a little bit more surface prep work before applying:
Sanding and applying an etching primer to bare metals before using are generally recommended.
Applying Undercoating At Home
Once you’ve selected the best undercoating for your vehicle.
Make sure your work area is clean, well-ventilated, and has adequate lighting.
Wearing a dust mask and old protective clothing is advised.
Make sure it’s a nice day with low humidity if you’re working outside.
And if inside, deep-clean your area to ensure it’s free of dust or any other debris that could become trapped in the undercoating.
- As always when it comes to updating your vehicle or using any sort of coating.
- Remove the rust completely FIRST and then proceed.
Rust removal is easily achieved by sandblasting or sanding, depending on the area and the extent of the rust.
- Once you’ve removed the rust and prepped your undercarriage for coating.
- Give it a quick rinse and let it dry to ensure you aren’t further trapping any contaminants on your vehicle’s underbelly.
Using a degreaser to clean the metal first is also recommended.
- Most undercoating is generally applied with a spray gun.
A disposable spray gun will work best; once the undercoating hardens, it becomes very difficult to clean the gun even with a lot of thinner.
- No matter what type of vehicle undercoating you’ve selected, two coats will provide the optimum protection.
Allow ample dry time between coats.
- Let the undercoating cure completely (usually overnight) before driving your vehicle on the road.
