HUNTSVILLE, Ala., May 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- LINE-X Protective Coatings is pleased to announce that it will be exhibiting at Coal Prep 2011 at the Lexington Center in Lexington, Ky., May 3-5 (booth #2303). During the show, LINE-X will be featuring their mine-specific, fire retardant product XS-252.
Ideal for the mining and military sectors, LINE-X XS-252 was designed for companies looking for protection against abrasion, corrosion and impact, but also needing fire retardant properties. The first spray-on product to meet the Mine, Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) Standard Application Procedures for Acceptance of Flame-Resistance Solid Products Taken Into Mines, XS-252 will allow customers the opportunity to apply the product to any type of mining equipment, regardless of shape or size.
Having met the requirements of the MSHA Standard Application Procedures for Sealants Applied to Underground Ventilation Controls (ASAP 5005), XS-252 is a revolutionary product used as a sealant for shaft seals.
Failing sealant materials have been an ongoing concern for the mining industry for years as methane gasses can escape into working areas, mixing with oxygen and becoming combustible, thus causing a huge threat to mining company employees. LINE-X recognized this threat and the need for a superior sealant material and created LINE-X XS-252 with both the physical and the fire retardant properties to satisfy MSHA underground ventilation controls requirements. LINE-X XS-252 is a spray-on lining product that forms a monolithic membrane to minimize the effluent gaseous migration into the working areas, protecting mining company employees.
Attendees of Coal Prep 2011 will have the opportunity to meet LINE-X team members and learn more about how the company's scientifically-engineered formulations are protecting some of the most valuable assets in the world, such as the U.S. Pentagon.
