LINE-X is a product that was developed to protect against explosion blasts.

It is now recommended for a wide range of uses.

The LINE-X is used by private companies that equip and protect our soldiers during their deployment. Buildings in hazardous areas can be covered with LINE-X to help protect personnel from bomb blasts, as well as structural splinters which are the primary source of injury. LINE-X technology mitigates the effects of an explosion by containing the fragments of a building. The same goes for shrapnel from bullets. After hitting an armored plate, a bullet creates splinters that can cause additional injuries. The LINE-X allows the bullet to penetrate the liner, but upon impact with the armor the liner prevents fragments from scattering.


In a ballistic attack, most serious injuries are caused by bullet fragments. The LINE-X mitigates this problem by encapsulating the fragments, which will remain trapped in the LINE-X, causing no secondary damage. LINE-X can be applied to any surface hard enough to cause projectile shrapnel, such as aluminum, ceramic or steel.

Known in military and research circles, LINE-X coatings are incredibly resistant while being flexible enough to deform and contain the support on which they are applied. This means that walls fitted with LINE-X coating can withstand explosions up to 20 times greater than a normal uncoated wall.

The LINE-X has successfully passed field explosion protection testing conducted by  Energetic Materials Research & Testing Center (EMRTC) of New Mexico Tech

and the Air Force Research Laboratory as part of a United States Force Protection Equipment Demonstration (FPED) show.

During the FPED, the LINE-X was demonstrated daily and was approved by Air Force representatives. During this demonstration, LINE-X was the only coating, out of the 27 selected, to pass all of their bomb blast tests.

At the demonstration site, two walls were erected as typical constructions found on mobile military buildings, widely used in Southwest Asia by the US military. One of the two walls was coated with LINE-X. In this test, 50 pounds (22.7 kg) of TNT was used at a distance of 10 meters. The uncoated (white) wall was destroyed, while the LINE-X coated wall was undamaged.


In September 2007, the LINE-X was certified for its ability to protect against fragments in a ballistic attack, by HP White Laboratory, Inc, one of the oldest and most respected ballistics research centers in the United States. -United.

All tests were conducted on an indoor firing range, under ambient conditions, with ammunition of various calibers. The samples were coated with LINE-X and fixed on a rigid support. The tests were carried out at a distance of 18 meters to produce impacts in obliqueness at zero degrees. The projectiles were encapsulated in the liner, showing no splinters from the bullet
