Can my spray in bedliner be repaired?
I recently gouged my from-the-dealer spray-in bedliner when I was carrying some small landscaping boulders – the bedliner is completely gone and the paint showing through in several areas. However, the areas are narrow ‘channels’ from pushing/pulling the boulders when loading/unloading. Would your product be good for fixing these small areas? Is there an instruction manual for the product you could send me so I can review to determine if it’s something I feel like taking on?
It would certainly be your best option in general. You can vary the consistency using the Poly Powder micronized rubber component (included), and thicken to a paste consistency if you like, to work into the grooves. While the coating is still tacky, you can dab with a paint brush if you need to blend a bit of texture and the edges of your repair.
NOTE: This product will take about 8-10 hours at 75- 80 degrees to cure (about 85% cure at that point). It cures faster at higher temps, and much slower if under 75 degrees. We recommend you keep it out of the rain or in areas where debris may stick to it for that time. We also recommend at least 48 hours before abusing by carrying more boulders or similar. Light duty use is usually fine after overnight cure.
You can download the directions at: https://spray-lining.net/wp-content/uploads/Bedliner-and-Coating-Repair-Instructions.pdf . You really don’t need the mold release, lacquer thinner, or helix mixer for a small job like this. As long as you thoroughly stir the A side product individually, and actively mix the 2A:1B ratio products for a full 2 minutes (not just a slow stir, but actively combine), you are fine for spot repairs. The other items are more applicable for our larger bedliner kits when spraying a whole truck bed.
Hope this helps, and thank you for considering Spray Lining and Coatings brand products!
