What is LINE-X?

LINE-X Protective Coatings is the nation’s leading provider of spray-on protective coatings. Our products are utilized in commercial, industrial, agricultural, military and custom applications. LINE-X specializes in spray elastomers polyurethanes and polyureas and has led the industry through many years of actual field testing. Specialized equipment is combined with the right materials and product knowledge to produce sprayable elastomeric coatings.
  • First to develop a bomb blast coating. This coating has been tested by Army Corps of Engineers & the Air Force Research Laboratory.
  • First to apply a non-skid pure polyurea on-board a U.S. Navy Submarine.
  • First spray-on product to meet MSHA requirements for acceptance of flame-resistance solid products taken into mines.
Only spray-on product in its category to be accepted by MSHA as non-strength enhancing mine sealant.
LINE-X consists of several different products. All systems utilize a two-component, spray-in-place, 100% solids (no VOC’s/air pollution), thermoplastic polyurethane and polyurea.
LINE-X products are a fast-cure, multipurpose series of coatings designed for a wide range of retail, commercial, and industrial uses. They exhibit excellent adhesion to most properly prepared surfaces. With its fast cure time it can be sprayed vertically and even overhead without running or dripping. There are no solvents associated with LINE-X products, which means there are no air pollutants or harmful environmental contaminates.
LINE-X Protective Coatings are resistant to most solvents and acids, making them ideal for industrial and commercial applications where corrosion is prevalent. Using LINE-X greatly extends equipment and vehicle life expectancy. It has a high “shore D” hardness rating, offering excellent impact resistance and superior tensile strengths (up to 6,600 psi) resulting in outstanding abrasion resistance. Because the material is sprayed there is a complete seal, making the coating “water tight”.

How much does it cost?

Unfortunately you will have to call us!  Due to the variety of projects and processes the price varies.  We can tell you we are not the cheapest in town but we are the best!  Our employees are not day labor but rather career minded professionals who are craftsman at their trade.  The combination of the best product with professional applicators results with the best protection and finish money can buy!

How long does it take to apply it in the bed of a truck?

Typical trucks are booked 24 to 48 hours out and are scheduled for three hours.  With over 20 years of experience we can finish a car in 45 minutes if the entire team is on it, but in most cases it takes two to two and a half hours.

How long does it take to dry?

The formulation of LINE-X and the system used to apply it enables LINE-X to dry almost immediately.  Depending on the solution you choose for you project most can be used immediately after you pick them up.

Can you apply colored LINE-X?

LINE-X of El Cajon Colormatch Truck Bed 2Yes!  LINE-X has the ability to match any color in the rainbow.  It’s is more expensive to apply color LINE-X due to the materials and time, but we frequently complete color jobs.  Colored LINE-X will take your project to an entirely new level.

Can we repair our competitors spray in liners?

LINE-X of EL Cajon Bolt Re-SprayYes!  We have extensive knowledge and several methods and techniques which allows us to respray bolts, repair side-rails, panels, tailgates and just about anything else which has been coated with polyurethane or polyurea.  We can simply complete the repair as required which may result in a color mismatch or we can use other methods to make the entire repair blend in and be unnoticeable.  Since every repair is unique, bring it in and let us look at it.  We work with several auto body repair shop in the El Cajon and San Diego area.

I already have plastic Rail-Caps, can you remove them and LINE-X the rail instead?

LINE-X of El Cajon Ford Rail CapsYes and No!  We can remove the rail caps and spray under the rail however, you most likely will not be happy with the end result.  Under the rail caps is series of holes and indentations, we can mask off the holes and make them disappear but there is nothing we can do for the indentations.  The indentations provide structural integrity for heavy loads on the rail.  Have a look at the picture on the right to gain a better understanding of what it looks like under the black rail cap.

I'm confused, what is LINE-X Platinum?

The LINE-X naming conventions can be slightly confusing.  LINE-X Platinum is the result of LINE-X Pro (XS-330) with the Premium topcoat applied.  At LINE-X of EL Cajon we try to avoid using this term as it can confuse people.  We prefer to use the terms Standard (XS-100) and Pro (XS-330) either of which can have the Ultraviolet (UV) Stable topcoat which we call Premium.

Why should you choose LINE-X over our competitors?

Let’s begin by stating, LINE-X does not view any other spray in bedliner company as a competitor!  We would never say anything negative about another companies product or how they conduct business.  We would recommended that you become an educated consumer by searching Google or YouTube for the difference manufactures products, rating, warranties etc.
