PROTECTING MINING EQUIPMENT FROM CORROSION AND ABRASION

How To Utilise Corrosion Control In The Mining Industry

When it comes to controlling corrosion and abrasion damage on mining equipment, exposure to extreme environments, weather and dangerous terrain are all challenges that heavy machinery must overcome whilst working in large scale mining and excavation sites. Earthmovers like bulldozers, dump trucks, motor graders, excavators, and others are the workhorses of the mining industry. They dig, push, transport, and clear waste material or the mineral of interest from the site. When these machines go down, work grinds to a halt. Due to the nature of mining itself, constant exposure to weather for long periods, heavy machines need regular ongoing maintenance. Fuel and hydraulic tanks are particularly vulnerable to deterioration. Because fuel tanks sit between the front and rear wheels, they catch rocks and impact damage

POLYUREA UNDERLAYMENT by LINEX

Concrete Waterproof Polyurea Underlayment Process

In the world of construction, waterproofing can be one of the most critical aspects of a construction job. Waterproofing is especially important when laying commercial-grade tiling for pedestrian walkways or driveways for vehicles. A flooring underlayment serves as a barrier between a concrete foundation and a tile application placed on top. If water penetrates the surface and reaches the concrete substrate underneath, it can cause significant damage resulting in expensive and time-consuming repairs. Since moisture is the biggest issue when laying a high traffic tile floor, an equally durable underlayment is required. In Mexico, several major infrastructure projects needed a commercial-grade, watertight, and cost-effective underlayment solution. A polyurea underlayment is one of the most reliable options available.  LINE-X Polyurea Underlayment LINE-X Polyurea Underlayment LINE-X Polyurea

Corrosion Resistant Coatings For Smart Parking Meters

Corrosion resistant coatings, by LINE-X, are being utilised in Italy for smart parking meters. Smart parking machines are becoming the standard in large and medium-sized cities. It’s an economical choice as one meter can be used for multiple spaces and smart machines can accept payment by credit/debit card, cash, coins, app or tokens. In many cases, smart parking machines are positioned outside or under an awning for protection from weather elements. However, even protection under an awning is not enough to completely prevent corrosion. Parking machines, and the complex technology inside them, are exposed to extreme temperatures, rain, snow, dust, sea air, fine particulates, debris as well as human and animal interaction that can cause abrasion or deterioration. A city council in Italy sought a

Dairy Facility Production

Dairy Facility Production

Corrosion is a plague to modern manufacturing; it can strike any industry in any part of the world – even a traditional cheese shop in Cyprus. The walls of this cheese production facility were constructed from steel sandwich panels. Every day, these panels are exposed to salty steam and liquid spills. Most cheese production uses acid and salt at specific stages to make cheese. After so many batches, the steel panels would begin to corrode. The panels often sustained further damage by the collision with and impact damage caused by stainless steel trolleys used to harvest the cheese or progress to the next stage in the process. The manufacturer had two options: replace the panels with new ones and face the same issues in the

Merry Christmas from LINE-X Europe

For a lot of industries, Christmas is the time to kick back and relax, but not for LINE-X applicators across Europe! A popular application for LINE-X coatings is creating props from moulds for films, theme-parks and shop-displays. Every year, new Christmas displays are created to attract new customers into shops, such as these candy canes, which were commissioned for a large clothing franchise For this application, red LINE-X XS-100, a polyurea-polyurethane hybrid material was sprayed into moulds to create large candy canes. Due to the quick dry-time of LINE-X, 85 candy canes were created over two days. Once XS-100 was sprayed into the moulds, they were released almost instantly to allow the next set of candy canes to be sprayed. Once the props had cooled,

ANTI-CORROSIVE COATINGS FOR ANY SURFACE - LINE-X

Anti-corrosive Coatings For Any Surface

Corrosion is one of the most severe problems in the construction and industrial industries. Corrosion can represent high maintenance costs, as well as endangering the integrity of the substrate. The corrosion process damages metal structures, especially those exposed to the weather, humidity, chemicals, among other elements. The best option to protect metal structures is to apply an anti-corrosive coating to exposed surfaces. An anti-corrosive coating is a layer that protects any surface where it is applied. Traditional coatings, such as industrial paints, are not entirely resistant to corrosion, but polyureas, such as LINE-X, resist corrosion and offer better benefits. How Does LINE-X Prevent Corrosion? LINE-X is an easy-to-apply anti-corrosive coating with which different types of surfaces can be protected. This polyurea coating is spray-applied, drying in
