Balistic Coatings

Has anyone had a chance to use products such as Rhino Hyde ballistic coating or Truck bed liner paint.
These products i have used in Auto and Truck applications and they are as good as their advertisements say they are,,,even better in my opinion.
The next logical step would be to test some of these products in an Marine Environment.
Just wandering if anyone has had an opportunity to experiment yet??
example:

Rhino Hide All Weather Armor - The “Elastomeric” Urethane Armor

Re: Balistic coatings.

I have heard of fishing boats using this stuff to coat decks on steel boats, but I do not have any personal knowledge of their use. I know some motorcyclists use it to make "rat" bikes, and it does stick.

Re: Balistic coatings.

We had Line X put on cockpits/decks of some new aluminum charter and rec boats. Looked real nice when done and super non skid. Hard to clean I imagine. Out of I think 4 boats, one developed some bubbles under the coating in the first year, but only a few near an edge. Possible contamination or poor prep?
The small day charter boats in Alaska took a pounding daily.

Re: Balistic coatings.

It might make a good keel-guard material for small powerboats/ski boats that like to beach their boats. Or for RIB's up here in the PNW.

Re: Balistic coatings.

You should check out the Myth Busters website and look at the extreme stuff they put it through,,,it actually stood up against a plastic explosive charge,,,they constructed a small shed and painted the rhino hyde on didn't even phase the stuff.
The untreated shed was toothpick city..

Re: Balistic Coatings

I intend on coating my steel sailboat's anchor well with it as I suspect it will cope with flaking chain a lot better than any paint AND is a natural anti-skid in an otherwise exposed part of the boat.

If it does well there, I could see using it in the cockpit well, and painting it with white two-part to keep it cool.

Re: Balistic Coatings

I'm not sure I've ever seen a pick-up liner that wasn't black, but that would in fact simplify things.

Re: Balistic Coatings

The ones I've seen advertised in colors are the DIY stuff. I've never seen like LineX anything but Black.

Re: Balistic Coatings

Hi all, I have used the Linex products on my last boat, specifically had the holding tank sprayed inside and out before bolting down the top flange. On my new 55'alloy cutter, I have had the 50 gallon fibreglass holding tank sprayed inside and out as well as my chain locker. It seems like the easy way to go as far as I see. It is extremely tough and sticks amazingly to most surfaces. If the local shop here in Courtenay gets a portable unit, I will continue on with the process in other areas, possibly in the engine room bilge, cockpit sole etc. I can't be sure, but believe it is now available in some colors besides black.
cheers, Greg
