Kevlar® is a DuPont product that is used for many spray-on liner applications because it makes a durable and attractive finish.

Based in Dallas, TX, PDM Conversions specializes in custom Kevlar® paint applications for Jeeps, Trucks and other automobiles. If there were two words to describe and define the Kevlar® paint, exterior and bed liners we offer here at PDM Conversions – the Dallas & Fort Worth premier one-stop shop for custom auto work – it would be super tough. The fact of the matter is there are plenty of other words we could use to describe this state-of-the-art product that is equally durable and attractive.  Typically used for bed liner and custom paint applications, our premium selection of Kevlar® is available in various colors and can be color matched to fit your needs and preferences. Though not completely indestructible, it is pretty darn close. It is certainly not just going to scratch off and chip off like some other truck and Jeep Kevlar paint applications or coatings might.

Like everything else we do here at PDM Conversions, the Kevlar bed liner and paint solutions we offer are done first class. In fact, there are no other companies in the Dallas Metroplex, region or country for that matter that offer our level and commitment to customer service and support. In fact, it is not uncommon at all for our Dallas Kevlar paint and bed liner customers to come back with additional vehicles and also refer their friends after seeing first-hand what we are capable of at PDM Conversions. We encourage you to browse around our site to see everything else that we are able to offer such as liners, lifts and kits, wheels and tires and so much more.

BREAKDOWN & REBUILD

Kevlar® liner Industry Standard:

Remove as few items as necessary to accomplish coverage, and tape over everything else.

The PDM Conversions Way:

Remove every item that comes into contact with an area that is to be lined.

Takeaway:

You cannot achieve a “from-the-factory” look if cut and trim lines are visible. Only the thorough and complete removal of all items around the areas to be lined allows them to be replaced back over the resulting liner edge. This process not only covers masking lines, but it also conceals any trace of the original color and protects the edge from damage. If OEM pieces, such as fender flares, need to be replaced or changed at a later date, our liner’s coverage under that item will allow for an aftermarket piece, potentially with a different contact line to the body, to be attached without exposing the previously hidden lines.

MASKING

Industry Standard:

Drape large areas with plastic. Certain areas of over-spray, especially on doorjambs, undercarriages and engine compartments, should be expected.

The PDM Conversions Way:

Over-spray, in any form, is not acceptable. We mask interiors, doorjambs and other exposed areas with two levels of protection. Wheel wells and engine areas receive the same attention to detail as the rest of the unit.

Takeaway:

If it’s not crisp enough to advertise PDM Conversions superior quality, it’s not good enough for our clients.

SANDING

Industry Standard:

Use DA random orbit with 80 grit paper.

The PDM Conversions Way:

Sand by hand with 50 grit paper.

Takeaway:

This is not a paint job. Adhesion plays a vital role in liner strength. Sanding by hand allows for greater attention to detail in and around complex hard-to-reach areas. It also decreases the likelihood of sanding dust being blown into the vehicle’s interior. PDM Conversions with more than 450 exteriors sprayed, has never had to carry out warranty work due to adhesion issues on OEM finishes, and our sanding method is part of the reason.

DECONTAMINATION

Industry Standard:

Wipe the unit down with acetone after sanding.

The PDM Conversions Way:

Wipe the unit down with MEK after sanding.

Takeaway:

Simply put, MEK is a stronger cleaner than acetone and requires the same level of personal care (PPE), so why not use it? It’s definitely worth the added cost.
