When subjected to extreme conditions, many materials deteriorate rapidly due to corrosion, abrasion, and impact damage. Trucks and trailers take a beating every day on the road, tanks and pipelines are exposed to harsh chemicals, and roads and bridges are open to environmental elements. This leads to costly repairs, loss of productivity, decreased value, and at times, accidents. However, by merely limiting the exposure of a material to the environment through the use of a protective coating it is possible to prevent chemical changes and structural damages. Following a similar line of reasoning, IXS Coatings provides customizable solutions that leverage proprietary chemistry and cutting-edge technologies to help customers achieve their unique coating objectives. The impenetrable barrier formed by protective coatings is a cost-effective method to protect and prolong the lifecycle of a customer’s assets. “We pride ourselves on solving complex problems with chemistry,” adds Dennis Weese, president of IXS Coatings.
IXS Coatings was formed through a merger between two global leaders in advanced industrial and manufacturing protective coatings—LINE-X and Ultimate Linings. LINE-X specializes in extreme protective coatings that improve operational efficiency, increase product durability, and boost end-user satisfaction. LINE-X’s coating solutions have virtually unlimited potential applications ranging from automotive to military. On the other hand, Ultimate Linings is known for its industry-leading solutions that serve major OEMs and industrial customers in a variety of projects, including robotic integration. IXS Coatings combines both companies’ world-class product lines and rich project development experience to give customers more choices for their protection and surface enhancement needs.

Through a combined 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 applications, portable water storage, chemical resistance, and ultraviolet stability among others. In addition, customers can benefit from the shared polyurea application expertise, spray equipment installation, and cutting-edge coatings development.
“Whether your industrial or manufacturing problems require turnkey readiness, robotic integration, or a completely custom formulation, we will find the right solution for you,” states Weese. IXS Coatings offers customized solutions due to the lack of a one-size-fits-all fix for a protective coating problem. Following a hands-on approach with every project, IXS Coatings understands a client’s goals and then assists them at every step—from installation and training to technical support and service. Moreover, through LINE-X and Ultimate Linings, IXS Coatings brings to the table several decades of experience spent fine-tuning advanced chemical solutions that meet the most stringent regulations, such as MIL-PRF 32240, and deliver the most durable and robust protection possible.
To further showcase the limitless application potential of IXS Coatings, Weese mentions how a tonneau cover company known as Undercover wanted to utilize polyurea and aliphatic coatings instead of a traditional paint job. With IXS Coatings’ help, the client was able to setup a robotic system for spraying a tonneau cover with a protective coating. Alongside such collaborative capabilities, IXS Coatings sets itself apart from competitors through its commitment to building long-term relationships with clients and providing them with protective solutions that exceed expectations. IXS Coatings is dedicated to offering solutions that deliver superior quality, exceptional value, and unprecedented performance.
