In wet locations, rust, water damage and slippery surfaces can do tremendous damage to your vehicle and compromise your safety when you’re at work. Al’s Liner Rubber Crumb is the perfect additive for floor coatings where water can be present and you need extreme non-skid properties. When evaluating the options for skid and water-resistant additives, we found ground rubber to be superior to the traditional mixes that other liners use for two reasons:
First, ground rubber is lighter than the sand or quartz mix you will find in other liners, so it stays suspended in the bed liner through the application process so that you don’t have to constantly remix your liner to keep it consistent. Al’s Liner is a true DIY product and the rubber crumb additive is key to ensuring ease of application when you need that extra protection.
Second, sand and quartz can be very abrasive. If you’ve worked on a boat deck or trailer floor that was coated with a different liner, you probably know the frustration of scraped knees and knuckles that comes with these substances. These abrasive materials can put scratches in other materials and tears in your skin, while at the same time wearing down easily with repeated use. The Al’s Liner Rubber Crumb Additive is a soft material that will not scuff your skin or your tools upon contact. It provides long lasting traction and protection and is derived from recycled tires ? just another way Al’s Liner maintains an environmentally friendly approach to supplying truck bed liners.
