LINE-X of Bay Area Protects Dublin San Ramon Water District’s Containers

When it comes to protecting raw metal, steel, or wood nothing protects like LINE-X Platinum. Dublin San Ramon Water Districts just received two new containers. These containers are used to hold the waste when the city cleans the street drains. As one could imagine lots of rocks, sand, and tree branches find there way into city street drains which is hauled away. Because this container would be subject to lots of heavy debris LINE-X Platinum is perfect solution. This product has great flexibility and wear properties that will protect the container for years to come.

This job required two half days to complete. The first day was spent prepping the surface. The surface must be free from oil and rust to obtain a near white metal profile for LINE-X’s proprietary primer. The job surrounding site has been protected by heavy tarps to catch any waste or over spray. Once this is all setup the fun begins.

In the above photo all grease has been wiped off and the remaining residue washed with hot soapy water, rinsed with clean water. After the container is completely dry the team uses grinders to remove rust. Once this has been completed the entire area to be coated is primed. The photo below shows the container with primer.

This primer has a re-coat time between 12 – 24 hours. The project was complete the following day. The spec calls for 60 mils on the sides and heavier on the bottom. The bottom photo shows the completed project after removal of paper and plastic covering.

Spending Time in The Sierra’s for the 49th Annual Sierra Trek

Lot’s of good things going on in them thar mountains… LINE-X of Silicon Valley, LINE-X of Bay Area, and Mike’s Truck  attend this years Sierra Trek 2016.

During the past 40-plus years, Sierra Trek has attracted participants from around the world; it’s become an annual summer destination for generations of four wheelers.  Access to the Summit City base camp at Meadow Lake is suitable for campers, trailers, and motorhomes.

Meadow Lake

The base camp was complete with breakfast, dinner, huge fire pit, saloon, nightly music, vendors, hot showers and a whole lotta trucks, jeeps and families doing what folks have done for generations. Reunite with friends on a family friendly camping trip where the kids have as much fun as mom and dad. I was amazed on the number of kids that have attended the annual Sierra Trek event for as long as they are old.

Here’s a short video out on the trail at   Winch Hill #5 Video.

Our veterans were also honored by having a parade through the courtyard after very rugged trip up a trail that is so difficult a winch is required equipment. Fordyce Creek Trail has 5 areas called Winch Hills. That is, help is available should one need it.




Wounded Warrior event had veterans making the trek on Fordyce Creek Trail to Meadow Lake up some very difficult terrain and ending with a parade through the base camp court yard. As a veteran myself, I am so glad to finally see these young men honored on a frequent basis.

So as a So Cal guy who moved North in 91 and never ventured any further north than Truckee… I am glad I made this trip. The high meadows and plains of the Sierra’s are an area of California I will continue to explore.

    Line-X seals it up for GOOD!

Mike’s Truck & Line-X Bay Area permanently resolved a leak in the roof of a University of Santa Clara Team Bus.

The University of Santa Clara Team bus had leaked before and the solution was to apply caulking to the seam – you can see in the photos – the line that runs the length of the roof. To properly fix the leak, all of the caulking had to be removed and the roof scuffed. Then the entire bus was masked off to protect any areas from overspray.

Line-X is THE PERFECT SOLUTION for water-proofing because it is SIX TIMES more flexible than caulking and can be stretched 600% without failing. Guaranteed to not leak! PERFECT for the roof on a rolling, flexing bus or any RV roof repair.

As you can see, this is a very large size job, but we have the facilities to accommodate! The bus was brought into our 35 foot spray booth so that the material is sprayed in one application. After it’s sprayed it takes just a few seconds for the Line-X material to dry. It dries solid and seals out any moisture. It’s a thick indelible finish that will NEVER leak again!

Do you have something that needs to be protected from the elements?
Seal out leaks with one application of Line-X!
