LINE-X specializes in spray elastomers polyurethanes and polyureas. LINE-X has led the industry through many years of actual field testing, putting together a package that makes it relatively simple to get involved in this major market. It requires specialized equipment combined with the right kinds of material and product knowledge to produce sprayable elastomeric coatings.
LINE-X is the recognized leader in this industry. Examples of LINE-X leadership include:
• First successful high temp/high pressure elastomeric bedliner
• First nationwide spray-on truck bedliners and protective coating franchise. Recognized in INC 500 and Entrepreneur Magazines. Also recognized in almost every major truck publication including Motor Trend, Truckin, Sport Truck ,Street Trucks, Petersons 4 Wheel and Offroad and many more.
• First commercially available pure polyurea
• First to develop a bomb blast coating. This coating has been tested by Army Corps of Engineers and the Air Force Research Laboratory. Products recognized by Popular Mechanics, Nationwide TV News Media, and Sixty Minutes II.
• First to apply a non-skid pure polyurea onboard a U.S. Navy Submarine
• First to develop a pure polyurea secondary containment product
LINE-X consists of several different products. All systems utilize a two-component, spray-in-place, 100% solids (no air pollution), thermoplastic polyurethane and polyurea.
There are two separate materials that are precisely dispensed through a high pressure, plural component internal mixing polyurethane spray machine. They are each heated to 120-140 degrees with the temperature maintained through a heated hose. Using high pressure, the materials are mixed internally at a 1:1 ratio at the tip of the spray gun. As the material is applied it takes less than 5 seconds for it to harden. As soon as LINE-X lands on the surface it's dry!
LINE-X products are a fast cure, multipurpose, series of coatings designed for a wide range of retail, commercial, and industrial uses. They exhibit excellent adhesion to most properly prepared surfaces. With its fast cure time it can be sprayed vertically and even overhead without running or dripping. There are no solvents associated with LINE-X products, which means there are no air pollutants or harmful environmental contaminates. Because of the fast cure time and the absence of solvents, a custom thickness is as easy as just spraying more or less material.
LINE-X Coatings are resistant to most solvents and acids, making them ideal for industrial and commercial applications where corrosion is prevalent. Using LINE-X greatly extends equipment and vehicle life expectancy. It has a high "shore D" hardness rating, offering excellent impact resistance and superior tensile strengths (up to 6,600 psi) resulting in outstanding abrasion resistance. Because the material is sprayed there is a complete seal, making the coating "water tight".
It is the goal of LINE-X to continue to produce the highest quality and most reliable materials available as well as to continue to develop new products. LINE-X will continue to explore all types of processing equipment to provide the best and most efficient application process available.
