Drytac‘s Spray Booth Liner provides surface protection for confined industrial environments, adding a protective layer that shields against harmful contaminants in spray booths. The product consists of a 0.9 mil white, nonfibrous polyester carrier that has a specially designed adhesive on the exposed side and a removable solvent acrylic adhesive on the other that adheres to spray booth walls.
Among its many satisfied users is Lloyds Autobody, a specialist in body and paintwork repairs for premium and luxury cars, which has relied on a Spray Booth Liner from Drytac for the past five years.
Lloyds Autobody was established in Liverpool, UK in 1987, specializing in accident repairs for luxury vehicle brands. It opened a second branch in Manchester in 2000 and across the two sites handles cars from McLaren, Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Jaguar Land Rover, the Volkswagen Group, and more. Lloyds Autobody is accredited and approved by these brands, so customers know that the service they receive will be of the same quality as from the manufacturer.
To help achieve the exceptional finish required on these high-end cars, Lloyds Autobody uses a Drytac Spray Booth Liner in its two sites’ total of four bays. This white PET carrier film has a double-sided adhesive, with a low-tack side that adheres to spray booth wall panels—designed to peel off easily in one piece—and a high-tack side that faces towards the booth to capture overspray and dust particles. In addition to shielding against harmful contaminants in spray booths, the Spray Booth Liner reduces static electricity—making spray-painting easier—and increases the luminescence level of the space.
It can be applied like wallpaper, with installation and removal quick and easy to achieve thanks to its non-stretchable PET carrier, with no protective clothing or equipment required. Spray booths can be used immediately following installation of the Spray Booth Liner—there is no need to spray, pressure-wash clean, or wait for walls to dry.
Andrew Johnson, project manager at Lloyds Autobody, explains that the Spray Booth Liner has been used at the two sites for the past five years, and is replaced every three months:
“We’re open six days a week, with bays full every day with premium cars like Mclarens, Rolls-Royces and Bentleys,” he says. “The Drytac Spray Booth Liner is a tried and tested product that is well worth the investment. It’s easy to remove and replace—you just can just take it off and change it, protecting what’s underneath.”
Johnson adds that there are similar products on the market but Drytac’s Spray Booth Liner is both more malleable and less expensive than its competitors.
