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!

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

What is galvanic corrosion and how to prevent it

In industrial and construction environments, it is necessary to take into account that materials exposed to physical and chemical processes can alter their condition and compromise their operation. Galvanic corrosion is one of these chemical processes that damage metal parts and can put entire structures at risk if not treated properly. Galvanic corrosion is a chemical process that occurs when two pieces of metal are joined, and a current flows through an electrolyte, such as water or moisture, causing ions to flow through metal (which functions as an anode) towards the other (which functions as a cathode). This process means that galvanic corrosion affects the metal in the joint. A typical example of galvanic corrosion occurs in joints where there are screws and nuts, as

WASTE-WATER-LINE-X-CASE-STUDY
Case Studies

Waste Water Tank Lining

SITUATION Outdoor and underground storage tanks are subject to corrosion and abrasion at the hands of chemicals, extreme temperatures, and normal wear-and-tear. These factors can – and do – lead to harmful and expensive leaks and spills. For a local chemical factory located in the Czech Republic, the threat of leaks and spills is unacceptable. They needed a permanent waterproofing solution for their existing concrete tanks that would meet the local environmental protection regulations and prevent contamination. Applying a durable waterproof coating meant retrofitting the existing underground tanks in the field. Hazardous chemicals and extreme weather conditions had weakened the integrity of the concrete tanks. SOLUTION The answer to restoring and waterproofing the tank was LINE-X. Spray-on polyurea primary and secondary tank coatings prevent corrosion

Aluminium Equestrian Tack Trunk

If you’re an equestrian, you know horse riding is a sport that requires lots of equipment and care products. Not only do you need equipment for yourself, but your horse as well. There are saddles, headgear, breastplates, spurs, reins, grooming tools, boots and much more. For the real enthusiasts, all this equipment needs to be stored and easily transportable. Tack trunks are a popular way to store and organize equipment. If traveling to shows, tack trunks are essential for hauling gear. Aluminium tack trunks are a popular choice for this purpose because they are relatively lightweight, easy to transport.
