How to Start a Rubberising Business in south africa

What is rubberising? 

Rubberising is a virtually indestructible polyurethane coating sprayed onto a surface under high pressure, which forms a protective barrier on the surface.

Advantages of rubberising :

All-weather capability: Aside from protecting the surface of a vehicle, rubberising the bed of a bakkie also makes it rust- and corrosion-resistant.

Chemical-proof: No matter how carefully you drive, if you move chemicals there is always the potential of spillage along the way. Rubberising protects a bakkie against all non-oxidising chemicals you may transport.

Protection against sun exposure: The South African climate is harsh on the bodywork of our vehicles. Continual exposure to the severe rays of the African sun can seriously limit the lifespan of your bakkie if you don’t take proper precautions
