Frequently asked questions

What is UHMWPE?

UHMWPE stands for ultra high molecular weight polyethylene. It is the most abrasion resistant grade of polyethylene by far and is often referred to as the worlds toughest polymer.

 

Where is Slippery-Deck® made?

Slippery-Deck® is made in the USA by Polymer Industries Inc., a world leader in the manufacturing of polyolefins.

 

How much weight will a Slippery-Deck® Liner add to my trailer?

The standard 12.7mm x 3,050mm product will add approximately 40kg per metre of Liner.

 

How long will a Slippery-Deck® Liner last?

This depends on what you are dumping, and how often and the condition of your deck. Generally speaking a HD-HT liner will last 2x longer than steel and 4x longer than aluminium.

 

Can a Slippery-Deck® Liner be repaired?

Yes. Liners sometimes get damaged by diggers buckets etc. We can cut pieces out and weld new pieces in.

 

Is there anything I shouldn’t put on a Slippery-Deck® Liner?

Sharp objects like demolition material can damage or puncture a Liner. If you have to occasionally cart this type of material then you can put down a layer of finer crushed material first.

 

How long does it take to install a Slippery-Deck® Liner?

An experienced team of 2 people can install a Liner in 4-8 hours.

 

How is a Slippery-Deck® Liner held in my trailer?

Normally the Liner is bolted through the deck at the head board and sits under a steel or aluminium cap that runs down each side of the walls. Plastic Liners expand and contract with changes in temperature during the day, so they can only be fastened at one end. The alternative, as is done in OFF ROAD Liners, is to completely fasten them down.

 

What can I do to make my Slippery-Deck® Liner last longer?

Check the Liner regularly and remove any material such as stones that may have gotten underneath it (your installer can show you how to do this). Foreign matter under the Liner will cause high spots that will prematurely wear through.
