About LINE-X

What is LINE-X?

The theme of many action films is a desire to achieve product protection at the level of their indestructibility. What seemed to be an unattainable dream in recent years, has now become a reality. Moreover, these are not the solutions available only for chosen ones. The highest safety level of protective coatings can fullfill its functions in your company. The LINE-X product line includes protective polyurethane coatings for various applications. All of them are: non-slip, elastic, resilient, impact-resistant and they feature the so-called "shape memory", which increases the strength and durability of the coated parts. The use of LINE-X technology increases year by year through entering the fields that were not included in the initial assumptions. Thinking out of the box and openness to customer expectations, which are features of LINE-X Corporation specialists, allow for continuous development of the product use in the light industry, the heavy industry, the military, in automotive companies as well as with personal customers, architects, designers and design engineers. Application of LINE-X coatings:

  • industrial halls
  • production lines
  • ramps
  • ladders
  • floors
  • warehouses
  • (residential, storage, transport) containers
  • barracks
  • steel structures
  • farms (floors for stables, barns, pig farms and poultry farms)
  • transport of cattle, horses, etc.
  • foundation (use of insulation properties)
  • basements threatened with rising damp
  • garages (large and compact)
  • motor vehicle inspection stations
  • garage pits in car workshops
  • in areas where watercourses occur (groundwaters, rivers, lakes, etc.)

ADVANTAGES OF LINE-X

  • Wide range of applications - LINE-X features in its assortment a wide range of products of versatile nature, whereas all of them are designed within the scope of the widest possible application.
  • Chemical resistance - Tests carried out by an independent OCM research laboratory (ISO 17025 certified) have shown that LINE-X layers are resistant to many chemicals such as chlorine, gas, diesel oil, most of solvents and more.
  • Resistance to mechanical damage - The specific internal structure of LINE-X protective layer guarantees resistance to impact, vibrations and abrasion.
  • The guarantee of quality backed by tests and certificates - Cooperation with various industry branches has resulted in a range of products that meet the many standards and specifications (safe in contact with food, fire resistance, chemical resistance, tightness, impact strength, ballistic and explosive resistance, shape memory).
  • Tightness of the coating - Thanks to its tight structure, LINE-X provides protection against dirt, moisture and corrosion.
  • Esthetics and fitting - Due to the wide application of coatings, the manufacturer enables to draw any color of RAL color palette.

DESCRIPTION OF LINE-X APPLICATION

LINE-X protective coatings are applied with use of specially designed technical machines. To ensure the highest quality of polyurethane layers, we use only branded components and top-class devices (GRACO, BASF, DuPont). The product is made of two components (polyurethane and isocyanate) combined at the appropriate temperature and pressure. LINE-X layers can be used on different beds. Perfect for:

    • Metal
    • Ceramics
    • Plastic materials
    • Concrete
    • Wood
    • Styrofoam
    • Stone

Duration of the product's solidifying after its application, depending on the type of surface and ambient conditions, is very short and lasts from 3 to 12 seconds. This gives the immediate opportunity to use the space, and fullness of coating properties' potential is reached within 24 to 48 hours after coating. Meanwhile, internal microstructure of the product is fully reinforced.
