US-based automotive manufacturing firm Growler Manufacturing and Engineering has selected advanced spray-on coatings developed by LINE-X for use on the military-grade mobile welding trailer.

As part of an agreement between the two companies, LINE-X will deliver its polyurea coating for Growler’s combat-welding trailer called Mobile Tactical Welding Shop (MTWS).

MTWS is designed to provide military personnel with specific tools and equipment to carry out electric and gas cutting and welding on vehicles to keep them operational on the battlefield.

Equipped with two on-board engine-driven generators, an air compressor and its own braking system, the tactical welding shop is required to comply with a range of US military standards.

LINE-X’s polyurea coating includes chemical agent resistant coating (CARC) and meets chip, impact, wear and abrasion resistance requirements mentioned in MIL-PRF-32440B.

“The coating will protect the MTWS against adverse weather conditions, chemical and biological warfare, in addition to increasing longevity and lifecycle.”

Growler Manufacturing and Engineering president John Crews said: “With protection, coating durability and extended lifecycle in mind, we needed a product that could outperform typical coatings. After evaluating several different options, nothing performed as well as LINE-X, so we quickly determined it was the right choice for this project.”

According to LINE-X, the coating will protect the MTWS against adverse weather conditions, chemical and biological warfare, in addition to increasing longevity and lifecycle.

LINE-X president Dennis Weese said: “We are very excited to be working with Growler as the exclusive polyurea coating provider for its tactical-welding trailer. Knowing it’s protected by LINE-X is a huge advantage for our military.

“As a veteran myself, I understand the harsh conditions experienced on the battlefield, and I am confident that Growler made the right choice by trusting LINE-X to help protect the equipment relied upon by our service members. LINE-X is already trusted by the military in many different applications, and we are excited to add the mobile-welding trailer to that growing list.”
