The Benefits of Spray on Truck Bed Liners

← Back to List
There are more than 133 million trucks in use in the U.S. today. It's no secret why trucks are so popular. For those working in certain industries, like construction or agriculture, they provide towing and equipment transport options. For families, they provide space to carry everything from sporting equipment to suitcases.

But the reason that trucks are so popular is also often their demise. The beds of pickup trucks see plenty of wear and tear during their lifetimes. From tossing in tools, trees, or other heavy items, to being exposed to constant sun and rain, they often rust, dent, and deteriorate. After spending thousands of dollars on a pickup truck, the last thing that you want to do is allow the bed to rust away or otherwise deteriorate.

That's where bed liners come in. Added to the bed of a truck either in a drop-in or spray-on version, they offer protection, waterproofing and more.

But not all bed liners are effective. Drop-in liners may shift and scratch your truck bed. When they begin to shift, they may not effectively keep water out either. But spray-on bed liners are different.

The benefits of spray-on truck bed liner

Spray-on truck bed liners are applied directly to the bed of your truck, using industrial sprayers. They offer a range of benefits that can extend the life and the value of your vehicle for years to come.

They won't shift

Unlike drop-in liners that can shift over time and damage your truck, spray-on liners won't move once applied. You won't have to worry about scratches on your bed, or having water issues.

They offer a custom fit

Drop-in liners must be custom-made if you want them to fit your truck properly. Otherwise, an ill-fitting liner will rub against your truck bed and scratch it. It may also allow water and dirt to collect under the loose liner. This can lead to rust and deterioration.

But spray-on bed liners automatically offer a custom fit to any truck bed.

They come in a variety of color options

Drop-in truck bed liners are often only available in black. But spray-on liners may come in a variety of colors. You could choose to match the liner to the color of your truck or mix it up with a pop of a different color. Or, you can stick to solid black.

They offer longer lasting color

Truck beds are constantly exposed to the sun. If you opt for a high-quality option, spray-on truck bed liners offer UV stability. This means that the color on the liner is protected from sun damage for a longer period of time.

But drop-in liners rarely offer this option. As a result, the color may fade very quickly. After spending a lot of money on a liner, you want one that is going to continue to look good long after your purchase.

They may prevent damage and deterioration

Drop-in liners may cover a large portion of the surface of your truck bed, but they are not bonded to its surface. As a result, water and other substances may end up underneath. If water gets under there and sits for a while, it could lead to rust.

If rocks, loose tools, or other sharp objects get under the drop-in liner, and then something heavy is placed on top of the liner, it could cause the rock or tool to rub and cause serious scratches. Scratches may also be caused by the bed liner moving back and forth in the truck bed over time.

But spray-on truck bed liners are applied directly to the bed. There is no risk of water or anything else getting underneath and causing damage. You also won't have to worry about the spray coming loose and damaging your vehicle.

They are a breeze to clean

One of the biggest benefits of spray-on truck bed liners is how easy they are to clean.

You can spray out your truck bed with a hose, wash it with soap, wipe it with a cloth, or scrub it with a brush. You won't have to worry about damaging the liner. You won't have to worry about the water causing rust. If you bought a truck for work or to use for outdoor activities or even just hauling around gear, you know that a truck's durability and ease of use are its key features.

So why would you choose a high-maintenance bed liner? The extra work you'll have to put in to care for you drop-in bed liner and clean it as needed isn't worth the hassle. But with a spray-on liner, cleaning is simple.

Choosing the right spray-on truck bed liners

All spray-on truck bed liners are not created equal.

Many options are cheaply-made, nondurable substitutes for the real deal. You might save a bit of money choosing one of these. But you'll also end up with chips, cracks, and fading.

If you're adding spray-on truck bed liners to improve your bed's durability, make it easier to clean, or improve its appearance, any of these issues will render it useless. If you're spraying liner on a brand new truck, a cheap spray option would effectively ruin its value.

Instead, it's important to invest in a high-quality spray-on truck bed liner. With Marvel Industrial Coating, you'll never have to worry about issues like cracks, chips, or fading.
