Default Dupli-color vs. Herculiner

Hi all. I was wondering if anyone has used Dupli-color truck bed coating (in the rattle can) to do the inside of their Zuk with. How does it compare with Herculiner or Rhino-Liner? TIA

I used the Dutli-color (spray can) in the back of my Zuk.....I am not real happy with it.Looks pretty good but wont hold up to much abuse.

I have used both and the herculiner is far better. The duplicolor is not much tougher than the rubberized undercoating you can buy in the rattle cans. By that I mean you can easily pick or peel the duplicolor using your fingernail. The herculiner is very tough but dries to a much harder, abrasive finish. If your looking for long term by all means use the herculiner. Here is a pic of mine!

Duplicolor sucks. Have you seen the inside of the tub on my CJ?

I used the Duplicolor on it, and it started chipping and peeling within a month. I'm planning on re-doing it with Hurculiner.

i just finished applying durabak to my interior and am very happy with it. the texture is kinda like rhinoliner but it depends on how you apply it. the duplicolor doesnt have much if any texture to it. i use it for undercoating and touch up to my durabak.

what seems to work best is the roll on kind. just clean the surface real good, scuf it up with a palm sander, clean it again, and it works great! i haven't had good luck with any bedliner in a spray can. it just isn't very thick. hope this helps!

Dupli-color = NOT permanent,
Herculiner = Permanent,,,

when you do work with the Herculiner, and Durabak, get a chemical resperator, and some qood chemical
gloves while you are working with the xylene... that stuff is very toxic... well to me it was.. I wore a
resperator and the chemical gloves.

also, if you want a smoother non abraisive finish, use an undercoating gun... that is what I used and it
turned out really nice,,, only thing is it makes a mess so have lots of cloth type drop cloths everywhere
you don't want the stuff at...

I used the Duplicolor roll in and it has held up OKAY. I has some chipped spots in it. I think the Hurculiner and Dura back are better products. You'll pay more for quality.
Take a look at mine.
