Santa Ana, California - Protective coatings specialist Line-X Industrial Coatings Division (LICD) will be launching its new mine-specific flame-retardant product XS-252 at MINExpo International 2008, the company announced 18 Sept.
MINExpo will be held in Las Vegas, 22-24 Sept 2008 (booth 02343).
According to Line-X, XS-252 was designed to protect against abrasion, corrosion and impact whilst having flame-retardant properties. Line-X said XS-252 is 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."
The company said the retardant "forms a monolithic membrane to minimise the effluent gaseous migration into the working areas therefore protecting mining company employees."
"LICD is very excited about our new mining product and the unmatched protection it will be delivering to the mining industry," said Michael Babiarz, vice president of business development for LICD.
