Bullet Liner™ International

Our Story

The roots of Bullet Liner™ in the polyurethane protective coating industry run deep—to the very inception of the industry itself more than 30 years ago. Claudio Burtin, his brother J.B. and his father Carlos Burtin founded the Burtin Corporation in 1982 and began to develop and invent polyurethane-based chemicals for a variety of cutting edge applications. With experimentation and development, Claudio pioneered a polyurea coating technology that bonded to almost any surface to offer maximum exterior protection against scratches, dings, rust, corrosion and more.

In noticing the damage inflicted upon the cargo area of the delivery trucks that brought the barrels of his raw chemical materials, Claudio realized there was an existing opportunity to help protect trucks and vehicles from the rigors of hauling cargo. He started a division spraying his amazing invention onto pick-up truck beds, tailgates, wheel wells and similar applications—and the business quickly grew.

“The Bullet Liner product was a continuation of my vision for this marketplace, seizing on the newest formulations for protection and style.”
Claudio Burtin, former CEO of Burtin Labs + founder of the spray-on protective coatings industry

He was the first in the industry to devise an advanced coating system that was virtually rust-proof, long lasting and impervious to extreme weather conditions. While delivering improved UV protection, along with enhanced puncture and abrasion resistance, the technology is ideal for customers who love their vehicles and aren’t afraid to use them in rugged environments.

Exceptional Protection

As a Carlisle Companies brand, Bullet Liner™ International is an industry leader in the development, manufacturing and marketing of high-quality impenetrable protective coating solutions for the light industrial, heavy industrial, truck/automotive, mining, military and industrial storage fields.
