RAPTORwill restore the most damaged and uneven surfaces to a good as new pristine finish. Once applied, it will dry rapidly to give a scratch, stain and U.V.-resistant, durable surface. Other benefits include good adhesion, waterproofing, and flexibility. It will also deaden sound and vibrations. Raptor Protective Coatings are a tough and tintable Polyurethane coating, that provides surfaces with a protective barrier. This protection can withstand the toughest situations. It is resistant to mechanical damage. It will withstand contamination by petrol, fuel oils, animal urine, saltwater. In addition, it can protect against chemicals such as solvents, xylene, phosphoric acid, battery acid, hydrochloric acid. etc. Using Buzzweld Quora colour system we can provide the correct pigmentation to provide you either a pre-tinted or add-on colour to tint Upol Raptor Bedliner to your specification. Different products have different effects on colours, so a basecoat, will not match a raptor tint perfectly. expect some deviation between different products once tinted.

The product can be applied using a roller, brush or a spray gun. When spraying, a 6 HP compressor with a 150 PSI line pressure is recommended. A variety of different finish textures can be achieved by increasing or decreasing the PSI. We always recommend using genuine Raptor applicator guns or rollers for best results. Buzzweld is proud to bring you a fully approved and tested platform to tint your Upol Raptor Bedliner products,and more.

Finding the space – we don’t have our own garage and air compressor, so we need to borrow the space again. So we reached out to U-Pol (the owner of Raptor Coatings Australia) to get some advice. U-Pol went above and beyond with their customer service. A technician came out to us to inspect the car in person. We were not expecting that at all. Adam and the Raptor Coat technician had a good chat about the possibilities of what has happened with our paint job. We wanted a really fine sandpaper look and it turns out, it was probably too fine. Raptor paint is meant to flog out of the gun, but in our case, it didn’t spray out of the gun the way that it is designed to. Why did the raptor paint fail?

Up to 10% solvent-based automotive paint can be added to Raptor Tintable products. Flat colours are recommended rather than metallics. Some acrylic basecoats can have a high colour strength, so less than 10% tint will be needed. Raptor must not be moxed with water based, polyester or enamel paints. Where possible, ask your paint supplier to leave out the binders for best pigment quality. Even though it needs a respray, it still a far less expensive option to paint and protect your vehicle from the elements. And when done right, it looks amazing. It’s also a pretty awesome achievement to do it yourself. Our paint job was full of scratches and was so porous that we were unable to clean off spilt car polish from the bull bar. Adam had used a foam polishing disc with a plastic polish to tidy up our head lights. A little polish spilled onto the raptor coated bull bar and it was like the polish had absorbed into the paintwork. It couldn’t be sufficiently cleaned and ended up staining the bull bar permanently. RAPTOR is a highly durable protective coating that ensures protection against mechanical damage, fuels, hydraulic oils, rust, corrosion, salt water, damp, extreme temperatures and off-road muddy good fun. When applying with a roller, use a fine roller for a smooth finish or a textured roller for a textured finish. When spraying, a higher PSI gives a smoother finish. As with any type of paint, proper preparation and testing is vital to achieve the desired result.RAPTORis remarkably easy to use. To achieve different finishes, it can be applied using a brush, roller, Schutz gun or even a conventional spray gun. Simply add the hardener to the base material in the bottle and you are ready: Fill - Shake - Shoot. RAPTOR RAPTORis one of U-POL’s unique super tough protective coating products. You can use it over many surfaces, and RAPTOR can be applied in such a way as to create both smooth and textured finishes. Unfortunately, Adam can’t exactly recall how many turns of the nozzle, but it might not have been enough. Developed to tolerate most climatic conditions, it is UV resistant and won’t fade or ‘chalk’ in sunlight. Raptor is waterproof and will protect surfaces from rust. This makes it perfect for exposed surfaces and even surfaces submerged in water, including salt water.

The air pressure was set at 55psi. The professional spray gun has an adjustable nozzle which enables complete control over the volume of paint flow. This was probably set too fine.Raptor protects the roughest industrial surfaces as well as the smaller surfaces we rely on every day. Unlike other protective coatings, Raptor can easily be repaired. If you need assistance with your delivery please call 01454315588. Our staff will be more than happy to help. You now have the option to specify your Raptor Bed Liner to be infused with Ceramic Powder. Whilst drastically increasing the abrasion resistance, after months of trials, we can now specify your raptor, infused with ceramic powder WITHOUT affecting the top coat finish. Fully compatiable with our colours, and drasticaly improving many aspects of raptor making Buzzweld's collaboration the Toughest Upol Raptor Bedliner IN THE WORLD. Ceramic raptor looks, and applies the same. But is harder, and more resilient. We especially recommend this when going for smoother finishes.

Having the time – it will take a full day of preparation and another day for the respray. Plus, being without the vehicle for a minimum of five days – including drying time. After spending 50+ hours repairing all the damaged panel work on the car, it was time to begin the next stage of preparation. It took an agonising long time, we were really excited to get to the fun part – the spray job. We mixed the tintable raptor coat, automotive tint and hardener together and cleaned the spray gun between each bottle. This was all executed perfectly. Yes, Raptor can be baked at 60c for 30 minutes. This will speed up the initial drying but will not reduce curing time; the finish should not be subjected to heavy use for 7 days and should be kept clean and dry for 72 hours.

Next step is mentally preparing ourselves for the fact that the rest of the vehicle needs to be resprayed. This will involve: Drastically reduced product requirement when using Buzzweld Quora tints to remove opacity prevalent when using many other tint systems.
