WHAT IS RAPTOR ?

RAPTOR Tough and Tintable Protective Coating is a durable urethane coating that provides surfaces with a protective barrier that can withstand the toughest situations.

Developed to tolerate most climatic conditions, RAPTOR is U.V. resistant and won’t fade or “chalk” even after years in the sun. RAPTOR is also waterproof and protects surfaces from rust making it perfect for surfaces that will be submerged in water, including salt water.

RAPTOR’s versatility makes it perfect for almost any application. Spray or roll RAPTOR on high traffic areas; it’s scratch and stain resistant and easy to clean. Its flexible formulation can handle impacts without cracking, making it perfect for its most popular application as a truck bed liner.

RAPTOR is unlike other bed liners or protective coatings. It’s less expensive and faster than powder coating. And in case it does scratch (which is tough to do!), RAPTOR can easily be repaired. You can’t do that with most of the other bed liners and protective coatings!

RAPTOR protects the roughest industrial surfaces as well as the smaller surfaces we rely on every day. It’s durable, looks great and it lasts a long time.

RAPTOR dries as a hard satin gloss finish. It won’t attract dirt and is easy to clean.

On its own, RAPTOR is not skid resistant, or non-slip. For a non-skid surface on walkways, mix RAPTOR Anti-Slip-Additive (RLTR/SM) into to the final coat before applying.

Activated RAPTOR Black and Tintable are NOT isocyanate free because the hardener used does contain isocyanates.

The typical Shore D Hardness Value for fully cured RAPTOR of 85. 

RAPTOR is a thick urethane coating and does not contain any rubber. The texture is controlled and created by the application. Lower air pressure gives a rougher texture, while higher air pressure gives a thick orange peel effect. Unlike most of the other DIY bed liners out there, RAPTOR is 2-part urethane product, which gives great UV stability and impact resistant without the use of additives like rubber. 

100°C. At sustained temperatures above 100oC, some softening could occur.

RAPTOR can withstand some exposure to petrol. If the area will be submerged in petrol, RAPTOR should not be used, as there may be some surface softening from prolonged exposure.

RAPTOR is not an insulator. Some installers will apply RAPTOR on the exterior in White to deflect heat (simply because of colour). The temperature resistance of RAPTOR is -18°C to 100°C, so it's not recommended for application anywhere there could be excessive heat, like the motor or exhaust.

We have had some users apply RAPTOR as a sound dampener with success, but it has not been tested by U-POL.

RAPTOR is a water tight coating once fully cured and can be used for many marine applications. Let RAPTOR cure completely for approximately 72 hours before immersing in water.

RAPTOR will also hide a multitude of problems, like crazing, pitting and scratches. Sand the crazed gel coat with P100-P120 grit sandpaper before applying RAPTOR. First, repair the damaged gel coat with FIBRAL (FIB/2) or SMC bonding filler (SMCB/AL - black or SMCW/AL - white) to seal the surface.

Yes, RAPTOR can be applied to both steel and alloy wheels. The preparation is as follows: sand with P80-P180 grit, use ACID#8 Acid Etch Primer (ACID/AL) or epoxy primer over exposed bare metal, and apply.
