Line-X offers powder coating service

Spray protection
Powder coating specialist Matt Trelles sprays a neon-yellow coating on an auto wheel at Line-X Protective Coatings in Wenatchee.


You’re determined to take your No. 1 obsession — your truck, not your wife — into the backcountry for a little mud-slinging this summer.


But that beauty — your truck, not your wife — costs nearly $50,000 and doesn’t have a nick. Shouldn’t you take steps to protect that ample front end and sexy chassis? Your truck? Your wife? We don’t want to get involved.


Instead, go see the guys at Wenatchee’s Line-X Protective Coatings. Since 2003, they’ve been spraying tough, nearly indestructible Kevlar coatings on trucks, trailers, boats, ATVs, ladders, speaker boxes, patio furniture and more.


In fact, they just put a coating on the railroad flatcar that serves as a stage for the Pybus Public Market. And they also recently toughened up a Jeep, inside and out, with Line-X linings.


Now Line-X owners Barry Keesee and son Kellin, along with shop foreman Jeremiah Murphy, offer a second protective option — a full line of powder coatings, including hundreds of color options. “We see powder coating as a way to complement our Line-X service,” said Kellin.


Jeremiah explained that sprayed-on powder coatings adhere to metal items with an electrostatic charge. Once coated, the item is wheeled into a huge oven — it measures 10x10x15 feet — and baked at 450 degrees. Good candidates for powder coating include auto wheels, truck grilles, under-chassis struts and bars, ornamental gates and other metal items that need protection from heavy use or heavy weather.


By the way, Line-X of Wenatchee also sells a full-line of truck and auto accessories and offers in-house industrial sandblasting to best prep items for both Line-X linings and powder coatings.
