General Handling & Usage
CAUTION: BEFORE YOU
START! It is very important that this product be used
only in a well-ventilated area. When applying coating
indoors (garage, warehouse, etc.), prevent vapor
build-up by opening all windows and doors to achieve
cross-ventilation or use other means to ensure positive
fresh air entry during application and drying. If good
ventillation is not possible, wear an appropriate
properly fitted respirator (NIOSH/MSHA TC23C or
equivalent) while exposed. Follow respirator
manufacturer's directions for respirator use.

NOTICE: Reports have
associated repeated and prolonged occupational
overexposure to solvents with permanent brain and
nervous system damage. Eye watering, headaches, nausea,
dizziness and loss of coordination are signs that
solvent levels are too high. Intentional misuse by
deliberately concentrating and inhaling the contents can
be harmful or fatal.
Always wear protective
gloves (provided) and protective eyewear while
preparing, mixing and applying coating. Keep away from

If working outdoors, avoid
coating in windy conditions to prevent leaves, bugs and
debris from blowing into wet coating. If temporary
indoor space is available, apply coating outdoors and
move vehicle indoors to dry.
Mix coating (Part A)
before use and blend thoroughly with the catalyst
component (Part B) only at the time of use. Scrape sides
and bottom of can well during mixing to ensure
uniformity and complete incorporation of catalyst. Once
Part A and Part B have been mixed, coating remains
usable for 6 to 10 hours depending on temp and humidity.
(See Steps 8 & 9)
Never add thinners or
reducers to Monstaliner.
Store coating components
at room temperature for 12 hours before use.
Do not apply in the rain.
If rain is forecasted, park vehicle indoors and keep
vehicle dry prior to surface preparation and coating
installation. After coating installation, do not expose
to rain for a minimum of 12 hours.
If working in an unheated
garage or warehouse space, do not apply if temperature
is expected to drop below 50°F. After the coating had
been installed, do not expose to temperatures below 50°F
for the first 12 hours after application.
Tips & Techniques For
Correct Results & Texture Appearance
MONSTALINER has a
unique surface texture created exclusively by the
installation rollers. Texture is pulled from the wet
coating by the roller and cures as a raised, uniform
surface. It takes 2 full coats to complete the texture
effect and final appearance is only visible after the
results, use only the rollers provided in the kit. Pour
coating into supplied roller pans. Load roller with as
much liquid as it will hold and roll slowly and evenly
until roller feels like it needs more material but is
not dry. Apply coating generously using a firm, medium
pressure while rolling. Avoid spreading coating too thin
before re-loading roller. Finish up each area rolling in
one direction only.
See caution below.
Be careful not to
apply too much coating in one area, especially on
vertical surfaces which can cause running/sagging. Stop
often to Inspect for runs, drips or puddles.
Bed & Utility Liner is formulated using a high
performance, UV permanent, dual cure urethane polymer
system. Over 4 years of extensive laboratory testing and
field evaluations have proven Monstaliner to outlast and
outperform all other do-it-yourself coatings compared.
Unlike epoxies and UV sensitive urethanes, Monstaliner
will never chalk, fade or discolor and requires no
additional surface protection, dressings or topcoats to
maintain or restore its appearance.
Cleaning your new
Monstaliner truck bed is as easy as sweeping and hosing
out dirt and debris. With minimal care, Monstaliner will
look great for many years.
