Rubberizing for Bakkies
Rubberising, Bakkie Linings, Poly Linings or more commonly known as Rhinolining, is a must for every bakkie!
Rubberising – the way to go
Rubberizing your bakkie is a perfect way to protect your load bin. It not only offers excellent protection against corrosion, abrasion and impact damage, it acts as a protective barrier against rust. The coating prevents your goods from moving around in the bin of the vehicle thereby protecting your load.
We only make use of high quality chemicals from reputable suppliers to provide you with the best outcome, designed to last forever giving you peace of mind.
It is important that the vehicle is properly prepared, before the rubberising process is started. Hence the length of time it takes to rubberize a vehicle. Short circuiting will only result in the application not fully bonding with the metal, which is a common problem in the industry.
Prior to spraying, a protective cover is put on the vehicle to ensure overspray does not occur. The polyurethane coating is sprayed under high pressure, which forms a protective barrier on the surface. After the spray on application has dried (instantaneous process), the excess rubber is carefully cut away, giving the rubberising a neat finish.
Rubberising look and feel
Rubberising can be done in varying thicknesses. The standard is 3mm or a more heavy duty is usually 5mm.
We rubberize all types of bakkies from half tonners to one / two tonners including trailers. We are also able to do panel vans such as Ford Transit and VW Crafters, etc.
The “Water Look” rubberising pattern, is the most popular. It is important to to consider the present and future use of your vehicle before making a decision, whether to apply a thicker coat or not. The chemicals used are strong and made to last.
The approximate time it takes to rubberise a vehicle is between 4 – 5 hours, depending on the type of vehicle in question. It is important to note that not all Rubberising products are the same. Be careful of cheap variants and DIY jobs. We only use SABS approved quality products ensuring the best workmanship and finish.
We provide a one year warranty on the rubberising .
A handy tip to bear in mind, refrain from using sharp instruments such and spades and picks. You will loose your warranty!
