Our Spray-Lining recommendation from Chicago!
A Spray-Lining Testimonial from Al Piemonte Ford a leading provider of commercial trucks and fleet vehicles for sale in the Chicago. I am Todd O' Reilley, manager of Al Piedmonte Ford. Before researching Spray-Lining and Coatings we sent bedliner jobs to several polyurea applicators calling themselves, “bedliner dealers”. I learned from Tri County Truck Accessories and Line-X of Bartlett that several branded dealers of truck bed liners and coatings get product, equipment via Spray-Lining. I called them and spoke with Ben Dexter Spray-Lining. Ben clarified the following:
Dealers of ArmorThane, Vortex Spray Liners, Reflex by Langeman as well as Rhino Linings and franchised Line-X dealers use Polyurea via Spray-Lining. Ben directed me to a Ziebart dealer who, “jumped ship” using Spray-lining.
Now I get it; spray-on truck bed liner applicators, whether they’re considered “dealers” or franchisees who jump ship to Spray-Lining and Coatings state this issue: Paying more for a brand name cannot be amortized within any reasonable time. Other services superseded via Spray-Lining are truly experienced customer service, product quality and pricing that’s consistent, and an actual warranty from them as the liable manufacturer, not just the applicators.
These “branded” bed liner names are not bad companies. Retaining clientele by branding is a respected tactic. But at the end of the day by competing fairly, Spray-Lining provides equal or better polyurea at lower prices without restrictions. Ben got more than my vote. Ben Dexter’s crew handles larger jobs than any bed liner dealer Al Piedmonte Ford ever hired. Now we understand that as long as the ratio and main characteristics are equal it'll spray through any similar equipment. That means better, thicker coating at lower cost; simple. "Dealership" contracts prevent using competing products. Since Franchises are highly controlling their dealers are unlikely to try. Dexter showed me these contracts of other bedliner vendors. They void equipment warranty or terminate services if any other product is used.
Ergo if you’re a dealer or applicator or even under an agreement like a franchise, if you studied legality of your contract you'll find it unconstitutional with several valid ways to circumvent it. But for now we’ll stick with the real deal, Spray-Lining.
They Make your Bed but You Lie in it. Factory Sprayed In Bedliner vs Brand Named Dealer vs DIY?
Spray-on Bed Liner Choice by a Spray Lining and Coating Distributor: LINE-X vs SPRAY-LINING & COATINGS vs RHINO LININGS vs SPEEDLINER, etc. vs the DIY Deals vs BY GM or Nissan FACTORY. Bottom line is the same issues:
1- Preparation: Scuffed + adhesion promoter + primer = best (in the case of factories, bed may be prepped for sprayed-lining, not painted "then" lining. That's best.
2- Polyurea vs Polyurethane % in the spray lining formula; more urethane equals softer lining. That’s more slip-proof but not as strong as a harder formula. Soft or hard texture makes a big difference in the function or characteristics of the bed liner.
3- Brand may not matter since most brands sell more than one Spray-on polyurea Lining product type. In general with Rhino Linings, usually their "Tuff Grip" is softer, Line-X is usually called "Standard" and harder, yet both vendors have other formulas under different product names. They behave quite differently. Speedliner 1000 hard but strong, Scorpion Coatings is very soft, not as strong and Spray-Lining & Coatings is mixed differently for soft to hard textures.
4- How much "spray" is in the "lining"? More is better. 125 mils or 1/8 inch thick should be minimum in truck bed's floor. Also, over primer a harder first layer is more adhesive, thickest second (3rd, etc) layers should be best slip-proofing + strength results from extra thickness. Assuming your truck’s manufacturer applies it; the same questions are fair and should be answered clearly. The word “factory” may denote quality as might a national brand name but these are words or titles; not specs, formulas or application methods.
5- Color? UV stable bed liner means an aliphatic color tint is added to the polyurea. No sprayed-in lining can be as perfect or stable over time as auto paint. Why? Simple, if the lining were made of 100% tint, it'd be tint, not bed liner. Overall a highly stressed truck bed in serious sun or weather will fade but most hold generally for at least a few years. Again, any bedliner can only contain a small percentage of UV stabilizers.
* SO YOUR CHOICE SHOULD BE BASED ON "WHO APPLIES” YOUR BED LINER, AND HOW IT’S APPLIED NOT "WHAT BRAND" BED LINER IS APPLIED. If you feel right about a trusted, reputable spray-applicator with a trusted lining product, names, brands or titles shouldn't matter. Without that you can review applicators, and products with strength specs on your own. These facts to review your permanent spray-in lining AND its applicator should be available, legible and comparable in a fair manner.
