    Scorpion Products For Your Truck

    You rely on your truck to haul all sorts of things. Whether it’s for work or play, you use your truck hard and want it to last a long, long time. You also know that the cargo you’re hauling around can scratch, gouge, dent, and ding your pick-up’s bed, reducing its useful life.  To protect the bed from damage and rust, you can install a bed liner. The two most common types of bed-liners are drop-in and spray-on. Drop-in liners are typically hard plastic or rubber and are “dropped in” to the back of the truck. Unfortunately, this may not be the best option unless the drop-in liner is specifically designed for your truck’s make and model.


    The most durable bed-liner on the market is the Scorpion XO2 formulation. This is a 3-component system combining (A) polyurethane resin, an (B) activator, and (C) Scorpion’s patented blend of acrylics. The polyurethane resin (Part A) is a blend of aliphatic and aromatic polyurethanes, offering UV stability and durability. Part B is the activator that hyper-activates the resins and allows them to cure out to a rubberized coating. 

    Finally, Scorpion’s patented blend of acrylics (Part C) does several things. While helping to promote UV stability, it also serves as an acrylic binder enabling the use of any automotive-based toner (urethane, acrylic, or waterborne). This allows you to tint the liner to match any color. It also promotes vertical hang for texture.

    The XO2 formulation naturally provides a smooth, orange peel texture. However, depending on the final look and feel that you want, by varying the air pressure and trigger pull on your gun, you can go from a flat smooth finish to a gritty grip-tape look. To learn more about the Scorpion XO2 formulation and their other protective coatings, contact your nearest Austin Hardware® location or access our live online chat at www.austinhardware.com.
