 Rust in Dump Bed

My dump bed constantly gets surface rust in it. I grind it down and treat with neutralizers, but eventually end up with rust again. Anybody know of any rust prevention products out there, or any other ideas. It originally came powder coated which lasted for about 2 years. I checked on powder coating, but will live with the rust at that price. I was thinking of a spray in liner?

 Rust in Dump Bed

Im in the same boat. Right now my bed is powdercoated white. White doesnt look bad when its new but after just a little use it will scratch, rust then stain, both inside and out. Im going to paint it black when I can. For the inside, Im considering a DIY polyurathane bedliner. Judging from experience Ive had with these, it should hold up fairly well but Im concerned about how well a load will dump from the bed with a textured rubberized suface on it.
Ive read of people oiling there beds with used tranny fluid, motor oil even deisel and other types of oil to keep it from rusting. That may be something to try.

WPHill. I've used a product called Sliplate that is a graphite based product that can be sprayed or brushed on. It's available at most any farm supply store or impliment dealership. We use it for gravity flow grain wagons. It seems to get more slippery after being used a while Hope this helps, Frank.

hardwood,
What color does it come in? Is it a stand alone product or does it need a base coat of paint or powdercoating?

bnrhuffman, I've never seen it in any other color than black, but there might be a newer form of it now that has different colors. All I ever did was get the surface clean, dry, and free of loose paint or rust then get a gallon and paint it on with a brush. I'm pretty sure it's nothing more than powdered graphite with sometning to make it stick to the surface and a carrier to make it brushable. I also think I've saw it in spray cans too. It really is a great product for grain wagons, maybe if you're dumping something more abrasive than corn it might wear off sooner, it normaly lasts two or three seasons for me. Frank.

If you go the spray-in route you might consider Line-X over Rhino liner. Line-X is harder and a lot more slippery than Rhino. Rhino has a rubbery tack to it. But either will be spendy compared to a DIY job.

I have the Rhino Liner in my pickup bed. It is more soft and "rubbery" which really cuts down on things sliding around and it also cushions things to an extent. Definitely right about being pricey but I think it was well worth it.

The Rhino liner works great in a pickup bed but not for a dump bed. The Rhino liner material has a slight bumpy texture to it which makes dumping difficult. Best thing to do is clean it up and repaint it, do what farmers do is get sheets of nylon/UHMW like material and fasten it to the bed bottom and possibly sides.
