Kevlar® and Raptor
Spray-On Liner Applications
While it’s common for providers of Kevlar® and Raptor spray-on liners to remove a few items and then tape before spraying, our way is much more comprehensive. We remove every single item that could come into contact with the spray-on liners for trucks and Jeeps before the application.
Industry Standards for Masking
Although the industry standard is to drape large areas of your Jeep or truck with plastic and expect over-spray, especially on engine compartments, undercarriages and doorjambs, we stand firm in believing that overspray is not an acceptable practice. That’s why we mask all interior areas of your truck or Jeep, as well as doorjambs and other exposed areas. This way we can provide two levels of protection while giving the engine and wheel wells the same detail.
The Process of Sanding
The industry standard recommends using DA random orbit complete with 80 grit paper for sanding. However, we perform sanding by hand with 50-grit paper. As a result, sanding allows for more attention to detail in hard-to-reach areas and decreases the potential risk of dust blowing into the interior of your truck, Jeep or other vehcile. Adhesion also plays an important role when applying a spray-on liner to a truck or Jeep.
It’s best to thoroughly wipe the unit down after sanding with acetone. We also wipe down the unit with MEK after sanding. By using MEK, our team applies a stronger cleaner than acetone that is worth the added cost.
