How Thick are DIY Bed Liners Compared to Professional?
The thickness of your DIY bed liner depends on which product you are talking about. – Most bed liners applied by professional bed liner applicators is applied at or above 60 mils. DIY bedliners are applied at 30 mils (which is 1/32 of an inch) at most with the kits available from our competitors. If you read reviews of Raptor, Al’s and others you will see consumers state that they bought multiple kits. Some DIY kits actually provide less than 10 mils of protection.
A truly professional sprayed in bed liner is supposed to be 125 mils in thickness in high use areas and less on verticals. Some applicators may try and get away with applying less because they make more money and most people would not know the difference.
Spray Lining and Coatings products are produced to be applied at 63 or 125 mils throughout the entire project. We are the only company that offers a DIY system designed to compare with a professional sprayed bed liner like Line-X or Rhino Linings.
