Hopper bottom trailers are used primarily to transport fertilizer and grain. The hoppers are exposed to:
- Rust damage from the salt used in Northern climates.
- Highly corrosive fertilizer dust.
- Road rash from travel on gravel roads.
During LINE-X® prep and application, all moving mechanisms are carefully protected so they don’t interfere with the control system. After masking, a thorough cleaning is performed. On new equipment, LINE-X agricultural coating is applied right over the paint. For used equipment, the cleaning process includes sand blasting and removal of any pre-existing corrosion, loose paint, etc. Cleaned substrates are then primed. LINE-X XS-100 is applied using high pressure impingement Application equipment, followed by topcoat. Unit is then unmasked and is ready to go. Full cure is complete in 24
Extremely quick set-up time (2-3 seconds) allows LINE-X protective coating to be sprayed at any angle without any resulting drips, runs or sags. Colour can be matched to any colour.
LINE-X can be applied to interior and exterior hopper surfaces providing a durable long-term solution to issues of corrosion and abrasion.
Whether protecting a new hopper trailer or upgrading what you have—with LINE-X you can expect a durable, maintenance free, good looking finish.
