LINE-X and Ultimate Linings, both specializing in scientifically advanced industrial and manufacturing protective coatings, recently combined to form IXS Coatings.
The merger combines their product lines and project experience to give industrial and manufacturing customers more choices for their protection and surface enhancement needs. Manufacturers may choose from proprietary products across both brands.
“We have successfully brought together two of the world’s leading protective coatings providers and can now offer our manufacturing and industrial customers a wide variety of solutions for any situation or challenge,” said Dennis Weese, president of IXS Coatings.
“In addition to added choices and value, we have also combined our research and development efforts to reinforce what has already been the very best in product lines with advanced, proprietary chemistry.”
IXS Coatings will offer complete coatings solutions worldwide, the company said. Through a combined coatings portfolio, customers will have access to proprietary coatings ranging from high-pressure polyureas and cartridge systems to specialty formulations developed for fire resistance, thin-build application, potable water storage, chemical resistance, UV stability and more.
Manufacturing and industrial customers will benefit from shared polyurea application expertise, spray equipment installation, and cutting-edge coatings development. By utilizing the LINE-X accredited product development laboratory that is ISO/IEC 17025:2005 certified in the field of mechanical testing by the American Association for Laboratory accreditation body (A2LA), IXS Coatings will have state-of-the-art resources to evaluate their chemistry, coatings and chemical development.
IXS Coatings said it also will employ highly skilled technicians and applicators that can implement robotic spray systems and provide application expertise to customers.
“Our combined strength in the protective coatings industry is unmatched and we are looking forward to exponential growth in the coming years,” Weese said.
