Over 2 million truck beds have been sprayed with LINE-X, which is also used to protect the men and women working inside federal and government buildings in Washington DC.

LINE-X may be the most unique display at the New York International Auto Show.

The company began the process of spraying its bomb blast coating to the walls of government-sponsored projects and facilities nationwide in November 2002. To date, LINE-X has applied the protective coating to over 200,000 square feet of walls.

"The same material that is protecting the beds of pickup trucks belonging to many members of the military is now being used to protect them from a possible terrorist bomb blast as well," said Steve Decker, director of Industrial Coatings Division for LINE-X.

After 10 years of research and experimentation, LINE-X Spray-On Truck Bedliners was brought to market in April 1993. The first application was the floor of a race car trailer, then it quickly progressed into protecting truck beds. Now, more than a decade later, LINE-X has grown to become the largest franchised business in the automotive aftermarket industry in North America for truck bedliner protection.

Currently, LINE-X has more than 500 locations worldwide. In 2005, the LINE-X brand was applied to more than 375,000 truck beds; and recently surpassed two million beds worldwide.

The LINE-X product is currently being used to protect government, public, and military buildings. Additionally, product tests are underway for a variety of uses and applications including the significant reductions of fragmentation during an earthquake, tornado or hurricane.

"U.S. military and civilian personnel and the facilities where they work and live are under increased threat from terrorist attacks. One of the greatest threats from a terrorist bomb attack comes from fragmentation - pieces of walls, windows, fixtures and equipment - flying at high speeds can result in extensive injury and death," said Decker.

A key tactic to defeating this threat is to ensure that the exterior wall of a building can survive a bomb blast without breaking apart and contributing to the fragment problem.

When LINE-X is sprayed on walls, the polymer coating is able to effectively absorb and dissipate bomb blast energy. The elastomer material remains intact and contains the debris, limiting fragmentation during a blast, according to government test results.
