Agricultural Seeder Tank Protection

Seeding is arguably the most important activity in grain production. In broadacre farming, the increase in productivity appreciated from an air delivery system to distribute seed and fertilizer from a central storage tank to the seed drill opener has revolutionized farming practices. The storage tanks are configured to deliver as per application use. However, due to the corrosive nature of liquid fertilizers like Urea in the holding tanks, a solution was required to protect the inner lining of the tanks further, extending the productive life and minimizing future maintenance issues. LINE-X XS-350 was selected due to its high chemical resistance. The agricultural equipment is manufactured in different locations around the world and assembled in the country of use. LINE-X XS-350 was sprayed on all the

Versatile Boat Build. Providing Fishing During Extreme Sea Conditions

Extreme fishing enthusiasts do not want to be stopped by harsh sea conditions. Large waves, with heights of 2 meters and up to 7 meters in length, would prevent most smaller vessels from staying out at sea. Designing and engineering a new boat is needed to operate safely within these severe sea conditions. When building a new boat, you want to ensure the substrate can hold up to saltwater and potential penetration from sharp objects at sea and whilst mooring the boat. A boat was designed for use in demanding conditions of the sea. With the primary purpose of fishing under all conditions, the boat measured 5.7 meters long, 1.2 meters wide internally and 1.8 meters wide externally. A Robust Coating Solution The finished boat

Anti-Spill Secondary Containment

Frac tanks can store liquids or solids like petroleum products, chemicals, manure, saline water, and proppants. An advantage of Frac tanks is that they are mobile and easily transported to their required location.  It is an environmental requirement that a Frac Tank has a suitable containment/dike area installed to contain any potential spillage. Installing an appropriate secondary containment area can prove difficult in remote areas to prevent any chemicals from leeching into the surrounding environment. The surface of the secondary containment area was prepared by compacting sand into a wall in the form of a dike in preparation for the placement of six Frac Tanks.  The installation of 8×8 mm reinforced mesh is applied on the surface of the dike to create a firm substrate

Improved Durability and Life-Span For Polystyrene Boxes

Improved Durability and Life-Span For Polystyrene Boxes

It is ubiquitous for polystyrene to be used as a packaging material. In automotive manufacturing plants, expensive parts are transported between production lines in polystyrene boxes. Polystyrene is cheap and easy to shape for a fitted finish; however, polystyrene is prone to one major drawback… deterioration! Light impact causes polystyrene to break and crumble. Within a production plant, polystyrene boxes are frequently replaced. The high rate of new boxes is costly and causes a large amount of waste product that would have to go to landfill. An automotive production plant in Mexico was looking for a solution to increase the longevity and durability of the boxes. LINE-X provided their hybrid-polyurea (XS-100) as a durable, impact-resistant coating to increase the lifespan of the boxes and significantly

Improved Camper Durability for Off-road Campers!

Drop Campers have recently partnered with LINE-X (Spain) to provide a premium range of off-road campers.  In 2017, Drop Campers was founded by two brothers, Mario and Albert Fernández. The brother’s passion for outdoor adventure, motor vehicles and a trip through the USA gave Mario and Albert the inspiration to start building mini caravans in their home city, Barcelona.  During their USA travels, they had seen the popular demand for ‘teardrop campers’. Teardrop campers are small caravans, cleverly designed to hold your camping essentials whilst providing sleeping quarters. This allows teardrop campers to be small, light, functional, comfortable, all-terrain, and self-sufficient.  Teardrop and mini-campers are a growing trend with off-road and overland enthusiasts and Drop Campers have also seen the demand from this segment.  As

Gas Pipe Bellows: Increasing their life span

Gas Pipe Bellows: Increasing The Lifespan With LINE-X Polyurea

When it comes to the transfer of sulfur dioxide (SO2) gases to an acid plant, you need to ensure you have the best solution for protecting the pipeline. Industrial bellows are installed in pipes to prevent damage caused by thermal growth vibrations and pressure thrust. However, these bellows can be exposed to abrasives and liquids- risking corrosion that can lead to a burst pipeline and gas leak. Corrosion of the bellow can happen for numerous reasons: pitting corrosion, galvanic corrosion and crevice corrosion to just name a few. Whatever the cause of the corrosion, a solution is needed to prevent a burst pipeline and gas leakage. LINE-X XS-350 Pure Polyurea Increases The Lifespan of The Gas Pipe Bellows. XS-350, a pure polyurea by LINE-X, has
