LINE-X has always been as environmentally friendly as possible but within the past 20 years the company has put extra emphasis on this. Our product does not produce any volatile organic compounds (VOC) or chlorofluorocarbons(CFCs) that can damage the environment or the ozone. The materials used in the bedliner are natural, biodegradable and non-toxic. The formula is also non-flammable and non-combustible. It is OSHA approved and meets all government regulatory guidelines.
What are VOCs?
VOCs are emitted in a gaseous form from solids or liquids. Exposure to VOCs can have severe negative health effects. Examples include paints and paint thinner, glues and adhesives, copy machines and printers, pesticides and more commonly cigarettes. For some exposure to VOCs can lead to dizziness or nausea but it can be worse with prolonged exposure like damage to the nervous system or cancer.
What are CFCs?
CFCs are chemicals containing atoms of carbon, chlorine and fluorine. They are typically found with use in aerosol cans, packing materials, solvents or refrigerants. CFCs are inert in the lower atmosphere but can cause damage to the ozone layer. CFCs were commonly found from the 1930s to the 1980s in use as refrigerants, bug sprays, paints and hair sprays but when a hole was discovered in the ozone layer in the 1980s CFCs came under the microscope and substitutes began to be developed.
What else makes LINE-X environmentally friendly?
Even the application of LINE-X is as environmentally friendly as possible. Vehicles are sprayed in a professional booth which is well ventilated using particulate filters. Our employees wear appropriate gear to sand a truck and use a breathing system when spraying. Any leftover material is disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner giving you not only the best bedliner on the market but also the greenest!
Not only is LINE-X environmentally friendly, LINE-X is FDA Approved so it’s even safe to be used around food and drink.
