Brookwells Review: RAPTOR Protective Coating
We have just received an exciting new product to our range called RAPTOR, it’s a really tough protective paint coating which can be used on pretty much any surface you can imagine, steel, aluminium, galvanised steel, plastic, concrete and even glass! It can also be tinted to any colour of your choice, with the ability to create smooth and textured finishes.
We tried it out on some tired old parts we had here, a plastic headlamp surround and a bumperette and were really impressed with the ease of use and the finish, I’d be happy to bolt them to my truck now!
It is designed and made in the UK and was originally designed for the US pick-up market so you can guarantee it’s made tough…it has been described by the RAPTOR rep. as stone chip on steroids which after seeing it in action I can totally believe.
It can be used on your Land Rover, tractor, garden machinery, boat or on pretty much any other application or surface you can imagine giving it a long lasting tough, durable coating to protect it for years to come. It can also be used as a sound deadening material, it can be sprayed on the inside of your doors, roof, bulkhead or under bonnet and will significantly reduce the vibration you get through aluminium and steel when driving making your Land Rover more comfortable and practical for a fraction of the cost of conventional sound proofing materials.
It is resistant to fuel, oil, salt water, heat and is even resistant to horse urine, if you have a horse you’ll be well aware of how caustic it is to the flooring of your box so quite an achievement!
Below are just a few ways RAPTOR could be used on your Landy:
> Chequer plate and grills
> Loading area
> Underbody protection
> Bumpers and bull bars
> Sills, side rails and steps
> Wheels and wheel arches
> Part and full vehicle overspray
RAPTOR can be applied with a Schutz Gun, spray gun, roller or brush so a great finish is achievable whatever equipment you have, whether in a field or a professional spray booth. All you need is some scotchbrite to key the surface and some etch primer if applying to bare metal and you’re away.
It is touch dry within half an hour and a second coat can be applied within the hour making it very practical and user friendly.
