spray on boxliner same as roll on?

do the roll on kits have same durability as a commerically sprayed kit? is there a brand of roll on boxliner that stands out as being better than the rest?

A DIY kit will never be as strong as a commercially sprayed on bed liner, as far as I'm concerned. However, Herculiner is a good choice. Pretty dang strong.

It's all about preparation, though. You gotta really be dedicated to spending a ton of time sanding down what you want lined.

no. In my opinion, and they will vary here, Go with line-x. The roll ons, rhino liner, and hurculiner go on at room temperature these all temp to slide or drip over time. Line-x goes n at 400 degrees and hardens. Line-x tends to look the best.

I've had both Rhino and Line-X. Line X ftw. It is the toughest stuff there is and mine still looks good after taking a beating for 6 years.

I was thinking about getting the inside my new landscape trailer with a bedliner type material, but I think I just may leave it as is.

If you can get it to their shop they can spray it. What are you looking to coat?

line x is the best its the best bang for the buck if your looking for it to last. I used the dupa color in mine and it lasted about a year and it was chiping off ofter that.
