Im wanting to do my tub but dont want the same outcome as usual
My Herculiner is quite rubbery...it's not a very smooth finish at all though. I think it's actually got rubber chunks in it to give it that rough, but extremely durable texture.
To the OP: Just follow the directions on the can...generally scuff it up/remove gloss on painted surfaces, clean it well, make sure it's dry, apply bedliner, allow to dry however long it recommends between coats, recoat, let dry, etc.
I have the Duplicolor Bed Armor at work...I used it to do the inside of our dump truck. I applied 3 or 4 coats, can't recall how many for sure. The passenger side floorboard is all chipped off and it's been less than a year since I did it. I ground those floorboards down to bare metal, used a self-etching primer, etc and the end result is still a major disappointment anywhere that sees a lot of traffic (still looks great where nothing ever touches it). I'm going to redo it with Herculiner within the next couple of months.
