January 9, 2013

WerkMaster Ultra Floor Systems, a manufacturer and provider of concrete surface preparation equipment is chosen as preferred choice of LINE-X Protective Coatings.

LINE-X introduced ASPART-X Flooring Solutions in 2010 as the premiere polyaspartic coating for concrete surfaces. ASPART-X provides ultraviolet (UV) protection that does not yellow or fade; will cure in all weather conditions; has a fast cure speed and offers excellent abrasion and chemical resistance for garage floors, patios, decks and countless commercial and industrial flooring applications. In recognition of these attributes, ASPART-X won the 2010 Popular Mechanics Editor’s Choice Award for Best Garage Floor.

“LINE-X contracted the University of Alabama in Huntsville to do an independent study of over 20 concrete grinder manufacturers,” stated Brian Wilson, President of WerkMaster. “The criteria included: Ease of Operation; Grinding Close to the Wall; Ease of Loading and Unloading from a Trailer; Ease of Changing Diamonds; Ability to Flatten a Floor or Follow Floor Contour; Cost of Diamond Tooling; Production Rate; Electrical Requirements; Overall Performance.”

George Rittenhouse, Research Scientist for the University of Alabama in Huntsville who led the evaluation project stated; “the Viper is the leading grinder in my evaluation criteria!” WerkMaster scored 4.2 out of a possible 5 points with its closest competitor scoring a rating of 3.2 points.

“We are excited to add WerkMaster’s complete line of concrete surface preparation machines into the ASPART-X Flooring System,” stated Mark Lunde, VP Commercial/Industrial Development for LINE-X. “It is very important to have a properly prepared surface to ensure maximum physical and chemical bonding of the ASPART-X coating. WerkMaster’s unique Octi-Disc technology delivers a superior scratch pattern providing maximum adhesion allowing us to offer a 5 Year Limited Warranty on our installation.”

Available throughout the company’s network of over 400 professional, franchised centers in the United States, LINE-X continues to lead the marketplace with innovative products that provide unique solutions to customers. By partnering with WerkMaster, LINE-X is working to provide the best surface preparation possible.

“We are constantly looking for ways to improve our technology” stated Wilson, “moving forward in the industry with a goal of providing the best possible solution to our customers. LINE-X and WerkMaster are equally dedicated to providing our customers with superior customer service and improving on our commitment to them.”
