Dump trucks must carry a variety of materials to job sites, including one that can be very hot and sticky: asphalt. Asphalt can damage dump truck beds, but owners can avoid this by applying a liner specifically designed to deal with this material. Read below to learn how asphalt liners differ from other bed liners.
One way that asphalt liners differ from other liners is that they can withstand the harsh temperatures of the material. For example, unlike other liners that may have trouble enduring temperatures above 180 degrees Fahrenheit, a QuickSilver liner can handle the high temperatures of asphalt with no difficulty.
Asphalt liners also set themselves apart by having the ability to perform in harsh weather, too. Because a QuickSilver liner can endure the heat of the asphalt, it can move cargo during dry and humid summers and cold, frigid winters.
These conditions do not hurt its ability to make unloading cargo quick and efficient. It is fully capable of preventing loads from getting stuck or frozen to your truck bed.
Another way that asphalt liners differ from other bed liners is that they allow users to be more flexible when moving materials. As we mentioned, the QuickSilver liner can move asphalt, but it also can move cargo such as dirt, sand, and gravel, like any other liner.
Asphalt liners also allow users to easily switch back and forth between different types of cargo. For example, you can use a QuickSilver liner to transport asphalt on one day and then switch to gravel the next day with no problem. This adds to your efficiency and increases your ability to serve more customers.
