Spray-On Bedliner Removal
Your Guide for Removing Spray-On Bedliners with the Inductor® Pro-Max Induction Heater & Flameless Torch
The U-311 Glass Blaster® attachment used with the Inductor® Pro-Max, Pro-Max CE and Max removes spray-on-bedliners like Rhino Linings 500% faster than using expensive consumables.
How does it work? Unlike traditional heating methods, the Invisible Heat® created by induction heating is the cleanest and fastest way for removing objects bonded to sheet metal. The high frequency magnetic fields pass through non-metallic objects – once these magnetic fields reach the metal surface they heat the metal and release the bonding properties of adhesives and coatings.
Tip: If the coating becomes too soft you may be making the panel too hot. Either back off on the heat setting or work faster. Remember to keep constant outward pressure on the object being removed.
Troubleshooting: If all of a sudden it appears the coating is not releasing you may be over an area that has been repaired previously and filled with body filler. Precaution should be taken should you not want to create any further damage in this area of the panel.
The U-311 Glass Blaster attachment comes with a 1-year warranty and a Pro-Max, Pro-Max CE or a Max tool must be purchased with it.
Step-by-Step Instructions for Removing Spray-On Bedliner
Step 1: Attach the U-311 Glass Blaster attachment to the Pro-Max, Pro-Max CE or Max.
Step 2: Set the power control knob to midway between the “Low” and “Max” settings. As your skill level increases, power can be increased to increase job efficiency.
Step 3: Score a small section of the bed liner with a putty knife.
Step 4: Place the Glass Blaster attachment on the bedliner surface just scored then step on the foot switch to turn the power on (maintain foot pressure to keep power on, once released the power will turn off). Using a back and forth motion, heat the area just scored with the Glass Blaster attachment for a moment (subject to the thickness and bonding properties of the coating times will vary).
Step 5: Use the putty knife to scrape the liner from the surface. If it does not release, repeat Step 4.
