Monoplane Wing Protection

Monoplanes are very efficient and have the lowest drag of any wing configuration. This makes monoplanes the most common form for a fixed-wing aircraft. The wings of monoplanes are commonly made from carbon fibre to allow engineers to create lighter and stronger planes. Although carbon fibre is a strong material, areas exposed to small impacts, such as ice (hail) start to chip and damage. This is very common on the leading edge of the wing. When carbon fibre is damaged, it must be either repaired or replaced. Thousands of these types of repairs are performed every year in the aircraft world and have an excellent record. But what if these repairs weren’t needed as often? What if the wing could be better protected from small

Possibly The Most Durable Bucket Seat in Europe!

Meet the RCC-MKK 2 Bucket Seat from LusoMotors – possibly the most durable bucket seat in Europe. Why? This bucket seat comes with an optional LINE-X coated finish for serious scratch resistance. Traditional coatings typically scratch and flake with general use. That’s what sets the RCC-MKK 2 Bucket Seat apart. LusoMotors, a manufacturer of race car components, kit cars, chassis builds and prototypes, chose to integrate LINE-X coatings into their bespoke bucket seats. WHY LINE-X? CEO and lead designer of LusoMotors, Ernesto Freitas, saw LINE-X experiment videos on YouTube. If a coating of LINE-X can survive a 150′ freefall from a water tower without cracking, it could add some serious durability to bucket seats.

Internal Tank Lining For The Mining and Processing Industry

Medical Clinic Trim Protection by LINE-X

One of the largest private medical clinics in Northern Greece was experiencing severe problems with the door and wall trim in their clinic. The door jambs and wall trims were deteriorating quickly, unable to withstand the constant scratching and damage caused by medical trolleys used to transport medicines and medical equipment between wards. The trim was deeply scratched and beginning to rust, leaving the corridors looking run-down and unprofessional.

The client turned to LINE-X so they could have a permanent, durable and aesthetically pleasing solution that wouldn’t require constant upkeep. The Application Process: LINE-X professionals first masked the walls

Brake Testing Unit Coating

Malta Public Transport is the national bus operator responsible for public buses across the Maltese islands. Their buses travel 30 million kilometres every year, and their fleet is over 400 strong, all of which require constant maintenance, servicing and repairs. Understandably, their brake testing units are in constant use, and the manufacturers’ coating on the break testing rollers started to crack and flake off, rendering the whole unit unfit for use. Without the use of their brake testing units, their timeline of servicing and maintenance was disrupted. The Professionals at LINE-X wanted to test if LINE-X could be a solution, and without a solution, Malta Public Transport had only one choice: to replace all units. Does LINE-X Have A Solution?
