Auto paint deteriorates due to exposure to harsh UV rays, leading to discoloration as oxidation takes place. However, the raptor's UV-resistant properties prevent the harmful effects of UV rays on it, ensuring that the liner won't fade.
Rust forms when metals such as steel or iron are exposed to moisture and oxygen. Therefore, if your truck bed does not have a cover, its exposure to the elements increases its susceptibility to rusting.
By applying a raptor liner on your truck bed, you can shield it against rusting. This protective coating is composed of water and oxidation-resistant urethane. Living near the ocean has the added benefit of saltwater resistance, as saltwater can corrode paint and speed up the rusting process.
