BXA – What does it mean?

Bureau of Export Administration? No, the U.S. Department of Commerce changed its name to Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) in 2002. Maybe we’re talking flying out of the Bogalusa, LA airport for an upcoming show? Not quite. While Sealcon will be traveling to attend the 2015 Offshore Technology Conference, that show takes place in Houston, TX.

So what are we talking about when we mention BXA? The answer: Black Nylon Ex Active.
