MASSILLON, Ohio, (Jan. 15, 2015)  – A.R.E. Accessories is partnering with LINE-X, North America’s largest retail automotive aftermarket franchise and leading provider of high performance spray-on bed liners, to offer a premium elastomeric protective coating option for all A.R.E. truck caps and fiberglass tonneau covers. This option will be available in two different styles: the Overland, which features a coating and paint design combination offering protection for high-stress areas, and the OTR, which completely covers any cap or tonneau cover with durable LINE-X material. These new options are designed to enhance the tough, off-road style of today’s pickup trucks and are available immediately.  LINE-X, with a distinctive pebbled finish and satin sheen, is impact-, abrasion- and solvent-resistant technology that provides an armor-like layer of protection that can withstand years of wear and tear.
“A.R.E. Accessories and LINE-X are both leading brands known for quality and innovation in the light truck market, and these new options will  give truck owners a stylish way to protect their cap or cover investment,” said Andy Clutter, marketing manager, A.R.E.
“LINE-X is thrilled to partner with A.R.E. Accessories to showcase the ruggedness of our product applications. Providing the protective coatings for all A.R.E. truck caps and fiberglass tonneau covers is a great opportunity for us to highlight the durability of our protective coatings in a real world environment,” said Kevin Heronimus, CEO, LINE-X. “As with all LINE-X spray-on coatings, the application used for A.R.E. Accessories is a top-quality protective coating that is dependable in all conditions, from daily to the most extreme.”
