    Default Rubberizing, this or that?

    Hi all!

    I am busy completing my custom load drawers for my Jimny. I am planning on coating them with some form of rubberizing. I have the Plascon Bakkie and Trailer product at home, but was wondering what effect the Duram Stone Chip would give.

    What is your opinion on the 2 products? Which would give better grip and application using a brush?!

    Thank you!

    I applied Duram Stone Chip to my trailer. I used those cheap sponge rollers (with the red plastic handles) you buy at Game or BW. It gives a nice uniform ripple effect.

    Looks very smooth... I can't get that effect with the Plascon Bakkie and Trailer paint.

    Not with a brush

    if you use a stonechip/ underbody gun it works way better
    you will also end up putting on loads more per coat giving you a more "runner" like feel.
    thin coats with a brush tend to scratch off easier

    Duram do a "DURAbak 2pack coating, its expensive but has so much stretch and flexibility, something like 50% its original size

    I did this with the Plascon waterbased singlepack using a stonechip gun, in one application

    That looks good! How does it feel when hardened? Rubbery or like underbody coating, hard?

    a bit hard like underbody, but also grainy.

    Beware, Duram stone chip is not particularly durable and not petrol resistant, I'd use something else. I had a terrible experience with it, many many hours of labour and prep, a little petrol spilled and it all starts lifting.
