The centers initially used a cosmetic solution to create an attractive customer view. This process required constant upkeep. After the first couple tire centers were completed, the warehouse center discovered that applying LINE-X as a protective coating enhanced not only the look of the store, but also protected the interior walls from tool damage and required less maintenance.

Vault toilet systems in National Parks are severely abused by outdoor elements. The vault toilets in Joshua Tree National Park in California were particularly susceptible to damage caused by extreme temperatures, UV exposure and sand storms. They are also put to the test by the campers who set fires on the floors and defaced the walls and ceiling. The park/campground staff are responsible for keeping the facilities clean and aesthetically appealing for the public. Some of the vaults that have fire or other damage need to be repainted on a daily basis. This becomes very costly in materials and labor for the National Park service.The National Park service required a solution for the constant maintenance and cost issues surrounding the vault toilet systems.

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.
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.
