UTV cargo beds are exposed to extreme conditions while loading, hauling, and working in the field. This workload often leads to paint chipping, rusting, corrosion, and denting. All of which decreases the life expectancy and value of the UTV
In certain parts of England the treated potable water is stored in underground reservoirs prior to being distributed to homes and businesses. These underground tanks are typically constructed of concrete or brick/block with a concrete reinforced roof. The land above these reservoirs is used for purposes such as farming which includes the use of fertilizers and chemicals. Constructed 30 to 40 years ago, the concrete roofs of the reservoirs have become porous potentially allowing dirty rain water and farming chemicals to penetrate the concrete and enter the drinking water. The customer was looking for an effective long term solution of sealing the reservoirs that did not require rebuilding or taking them out of service.
Consumers are expecting more luxuries out of their vehicles than ever before. One of the most important things expected from vehicles is a quiet ride. To accommodate consumers, most vehicles are equipped with sound-deadening insulation.Unfortunately, the insulation is inadequate, allowing road noise into the vehicle. This is both annoying to the passengers and lessens sound quality from the stereo system.Traditional aftermarket sound deadening options include foam or foam-like squares that break down overtime and require messy adhesive to apply. These options also require sections to be pieced together,which is often rough and leaves gaps for noise to pass through.Vehicle owners looking for a solution to this noise problem are turning to LINE-X.
Metal or painted fenders show dam-age easily. Even a small rock will leave a dimple or chip the paint. Enthusiasts spend thousands of dollars ensuring their vehicles look great. Damaged fenders or accessories significantly detract from the look and value of the vehicle.A local company specializing in trikes and sidecar kits has LINE-X spray the back fenders, steps and the front fender of their vehicles to protect them from the damage caused by normal driving. The company is so pleased with the LINE-X product, they referred an out-of-town couple to the local store for this application.
A road and bridge contractor required an application to protect the floors of their Tri-Axle dump trucks from extreme impact, abrasion and corrosion. These trucks were consistently exposed to extreme impact and abrasion from cement, rocks and gravel. The floors of the trucks were especially susceptible needing to be replaced every four to five years at a minimum cost of $3,000. Due to the fact the company owns at least 25 dump trucks, having to replace the floors was becoming increasingly costly. It was mandatory that the product used to protect the floors would be able to withstand the constant extreme abuse of the construction sites while living up to the client’s image requirements. They also needed the solution to be time efficient preventing extensive downtime.
Equipment that is used to move waste operates in a very demanding environment. As garbage breakdowns, chemicals are released and can combine with other materials to create caustic runoff. In addition to eroding metal parts on expensive equipment, this runoff can also damage rubber and even cause unhealthy situations for workers. Replacement is costly and time consuming.A city municipality was experiencing corrosion issues in the tray that contains the hydraulic compacting ram and hoses of their trash compactor.The corrosion was accelerated by the caustic runoff from the waste.The City needed a solution that would resist the runoff, protect the hydraulic equipment and increase the overall maintenance cycle of the equipment. They needed the solution in a time efficient manner preventing downtime of the equipment.
Companies in North America have the constant challenge of keeping their equipment looking clean and new. Flat deck trailers aren’t immune to this problem. Steel decks require routine maintenance and repainting to keep on top of corrosion problems. Wood decks rot and are difficult to clean. Aluminum doesn’t suffer the same corrosion problems but abrasion tends to cause excessive wear. Customers in the market for new trailers are demanding quality, with problem free coatings.
City and county road crews across the country use tractors and other equipment to maintain roads, parks, and other public areas. These crews perform numerous jobs including lawn and brush mowing, construction and routine maintenance. Tractor cabs and canopies are a popular solution for maintenance departments to protect crews from damaging sun and debris. Because this equipment is operated in rugged areas such as ditches and heavily treed areas, the plastic canopies are often scratched or cracked from overhanging branches. A city maintenance manager came to LINE-X looking for a solution to strengthen his tractor cabs and reduce his maintenance costs.
Companies in North America have the constant challenge of keeping their equipment looking clean and new. Metal tanks need routine maintenance and repainting to keep on top of corrosion problems, but need protectiuon from constant abrasion on gravel roads; without protection they too will look old and unkept.
Swimming starting blocks are not only necessary for competitive swimming but they are a valuable tool for any venue that provides the opportunity to show school pride.The University of Nebraska purchased stainless steel swimming blocks 30 years ago. Due to the constant contact with chlorinated water, the blocks were suffering from extreme corrosion even though they had been refinished. The corrosion was not only unsightly but was also damaging the blocks limiting the lifespan of the school investment. The cost of replacement on a school’s limited budget was unfeasible. LINE-X offered a quick solution that was cost-effective, provided long-lasting results and added the bonus of skid resistant safety features necessary in blocks. Furthermore,the solution presented the University with quality, vibrant starting blocks that screamed school spirit.
