Polyurea Coatings and Blast Protection Coatings
PAXCON is a revolutionary new Blast Protection Coating. This innovative material is made from elastomeric polymers and offers protective spall lining. The flexing LINE-X coating absorbs the impact of a bullet, preventing it from fragmenting and spalling. It also withstands high levels of bomb blast pressure. Tests have shown that PAXCON is effective against 80 psi blast pressure, whereas unreinforced concrete block infill walls fail at 2 psi.
The United States Marines needed additional protection against IEDs on their Humvees, so they sought out SPI. QuickSpray Supreme Ultimate Protection is a specially formulated polyurea blast mitigation coating for explosive environments. To protect the Humvee, the doors were cleaned, emulsion removed and the walls were prepared. Then, the SPI Dragonshield-HT(r) polyurea coating was applied to the doors.
Another company that makes blast mitigation solutions has developed Dragonshield-HT(r) ERC. The product has undergone extensive tests against ammo of 7.62 mm and 9.4 mm rolled homogenous armor steel. It saved the US military money and increased the safety of the Humvees even during rough terrain. In fact, the US Military recently purchased the Dragonshield-HT(r) polyurea coating for the Humvees as part of its comprehensive protective measures.
The sprayed-on polyurea coatings are specially designed to withstand immense pressures and prevent internal fractures. Their unique properties allow these products to be used on metal structures and armored vehicles. Ballistic protective coatings are a proven solution for reducing the risk of blast damage and saving lives. Its effectiveness has been tested in various military operations and is used on US Military Humvees. A new study shows that this technology can help in preventing fatalities and minimizing damage.
A recent study by the Polyurea Review compared two concrete structures. They were made of TNT and 10 lbs. of C4 and were tested under the same conditions. The difference between the two structures was remarkable. The polyurea coatings significantly reduced the risk of structural fractures. The researchers concluded that the polyurea coatings offer more than a mere layer of protection. These protective layers protect concrete from the effects of blasts.
While it is possible to reduce structural damage from a blast by adding a layer of protective coating, it is not possible to prevent the projectiles from damaging structures. It is important to protect people and property in the area where a bomb is located. With the right protection system, the explosion will not damage your vehicle. It will also protect the surrounding environment. There are a number of different types of ballistic resistant coatings.
The US Marines wanted to use polyurea-based protective linings on Humvees. The US Marines chose an approved application of QuickSpray Supreme Ultimate Protection. The polyurea blast mitigation coating is designed to deflect the blast fragments that cause the most injury and death in an explosion. A high-quality protective lining will also prevent any damage to the vehicle and its personnel. Therefore, this coating is highly advantageous to a building’s overall safety.
A Polyurea Review investigation has proven the superiority of polyurea-based blast mitigation coatings over traditional concrete. It is a renowned elastomer with excellent blast mitigation and ballistic protection properties. The application is designed to protect the occupants of a Humvee against a high-velocity munitions. It can be applied to any type of concrete structure and provides a high level of safety.
An approved application of Blast Protection Coatings will be the best choice for your project. For example, the UK government’s National Defence Infrastructure Agency (NHBI) requires blast proofing of buildings to protect the people inside. In the case of Emirates Air Line, the team chose QuickSpray Supreme Ultimate Protection to prevent any damage to the aircraft and the building. A polyurea coating is designed specifically for explosive environments. A test using this material can help the US Military avoid the dangers associated with an attack on the airport.
An ERC coating will protect a building from blasts. This type of coating is available in many different colors and textures. It will prevent blast-resistant glass from exploding. In addition, it will also help protect the building from metal and glass from damage. This type of protective coating is a popular option in commercial buildings. And it is also widely used in hospitals and other areas where a person’s safety is paramount.
