Frequently Asked Questions
What are the differences between SPEEDLINER EURO HS® and other spray liner?
High tensile and tear strength give us better protection over most other brands. We can increase even further our cut and tear resistance with the addition of genuine DuPont™ Kevlar® pulp fibre additive into our spray liner.
The Kevlar® option is available directly from Speedliner Europe Ltd. authorised Dealers / Application Centres. Not all of our spray liner competitors offer this. A Speedliner Euro HS® spray on liner is far less likely to rip or tear than most of our competitors. Our spray liner also offers high UV protection from the sun’s harmful rays.
This means Speedliner Euro HS® can hold its colour better than most of our competitors and will not ‘chalk’ over time that you may often see with some other products.
Why do you use DuPont™ Kevlar®?
Kevlar® pulp fibre is a tried and tested optional additive used to greatly enhance cut and tear strength of the sprayed liner.
It is recommended on heavy-duty / hard use trucks and high impact areas.
Kevlar® may not be available with other spray on liner systems. Ask about our FREE Kevlar® voucher.
Take your FREE Kevlar® voucher to your nearest Dealer/Application Centre and the Kevlar®fibre additive will be used in the application of Speedliner Euro HS® to your vehicle at no extra cost.
How thick is the spray liner?
Based on our proven fantastic strength and toughness our recommended thickness for most truck/van ‘floor’ areas is 2.5 – 3mm or approximately 1/8″. However, Speedliner Euro HS® can be sprayed thicker or thinner as required.
Do you offer colours?
We offer a choice of over 25 stock colours: Black, Dark Green, Emerald Green (metallic), Medium Green, Camouflage Green, Yellow, White, Red, Garnet Red (metallic), Petrol Blue, Dark Blue, Indigo Blue (metallic), Medium Blue, Camouflage Brown, Orange, Charcoal Grey, Medium Grey, Dove Grey, Light Grey, and Desert Tan including other ‘special’ metallic colours.
Please request a sprayed liner colour sample.
Speedliner Euro HS®can also be colour matched to most vehicles using our specialist colour matching techniques – even to many metallics. Ask us or your Dealer for details.

Can you spray ‘over the rails’ / topcaps on pick up trucks?
Yes, Speedliner Euro HS® can be sprayed ‘over the rails’ / topcaps giving added protection against side loading and chafing damage from hard tops / canopies. This is usually included in our standard application price.

Is it chemical resistant?
Speedliner Euro HS® has great resistance to many chemicals and performs very well against many different chemical solutions. Contact Speedliner® Europe Ltd. Technical Support.
Do I need to use a colour restorer like some other spray liner companies recommend?
NO! Speedliner Euro HS® will hold its colour over many years unlike many other spray liners that ‘chalk’ and fade from the sun’s UV rays.
How long does it take for a spray liner application?
Depending on the Dealer/Application Centre’s schedule, vehicles that have had a Speedliner Euro HS® application may be collected on the same day or next morning.
Weather conditions like cold temperatures and/or rain may also dictate that the vehicle should stay at the Dealers/Application Centre overnight to protect the new liner while in its early stages of curing.
Please check turnaround time with your Dealer/Application Centre.
“Quality is usually worth a little patience.”
How long does a spray application take to dry / cure before using it?
Speedliner Euro HS® usually becomes dry to the touch in about 45 minutes to 1 hour at average room temperature 22°C (72° F). Speedliner Euro HS® will be capable of light use after 24 hours.
Full cure to achieve our proven excellent strength and toughness takes 3 to 5 days depending on temperature.
Of course you can use your vehicle with sensible care during this cure time.
Colder weather may slow the full cure time slightly but Speedliner Euro HS® will still achieve full functional strength.
Remember, Speedliner Euro HS® has a greater cured strength than ANY ‘fast cure’ spray liner.
Why does SPEEDLINER EURO HS® take longer to dry and cure?
Because of the unique chemistry and exclusive formula of Speedliner Euro HS® it achieves its highest possible strength and toughness by taking a little longer to dry and cure.
There is no such thing as ‘instant dry’ and ‘fast cure’ spray liners equalling the great strength and toughness of Speedliner Euro HS®.
Can it be applied to wood, concrete, fibreglass, etc.?
Speedliner Euro HS® can be applied to many surfaces for various applications. Our rule of thumb tells us that if it can be painted, it can probably be coated with Speedliner Euro HS®. We now have some exclusively formulated and manufactured primers that enable us to coat many more different substrates including various plastics and foams.
Visit a Dealer/Application Centre for more details, or contact Speedliner® Europe Ltd. Technical Support.
How much does it cost?
You should contact your nearest authorised independent Speedliner® Europe Dealer / Application Centre for details regarding application prices as this will depend on your vehicle size, type and condition and if any previously fitted accessories such as roll bars or canopies need to be removed from pick-up trucks or shelves and/or racking needs to be removed from panel vans prior to the spray application.
However, prices may vary slightly from Dealer to Dealer depending on their geographic location.
What type of warranty do you give?
The individual Speedliner Euro HS® Dealer/Application Centre warrants all application work
The Speedliner Euro HS® polymer spray liner will have a lifetime warranty from any manufactured chemical or product defects.
