Chemical Agent Resistant Coatings For Military Use

Coating Systems Inc. is an experienced supplier of Chemical Agent Resistant Coatings (CARC) to the defense industry, for use in various military applications. Our operations are MIL-SPEC compliant. We also offer competitive pricing as well as flexible and accommodating lead times. Our CARC coatings, usually epoxy or polyurethane, are formulated to provide the required resistance to harsh chemicals that are used to wash down military equipment, or exposed to chemical warfare agents such as nerve gas. These coatings are engineered to withstand the caustic nature of decontaminating chemicals, predominant solvents, and play a crucial role in prolonging the service life of military equipment and vehicles. Surfaces coated with our CARC compounds are virtually impenetrable to radioactive, chemical, and biological contaminants.

How CARC’s Save Lives On The Battlefield

CARC camouflage provides much more than visual camouflage and is a critical element in efforts to increase troop survivability on the battlefield. The rights to the patented CARC material are owned by the U.S. government and only certain manufacturers are licensed to produce it for military use. CARC is also regulated under the International Traffic in Arms Regulation. CARC have particular life-saving benefits with regard to Infrared Signature Management. Each of the colors in the camouflage system contains a special pigment package that camouflages vehicles and equipment when they are in their intended theater of operation preventing them from being detected by enemy weapons systems. Using commercially available aerosol paints such as Krylon™ may create an IR “hotspot” and a potential target for IR homing weapons systems. That is why it is extremely important to touch up CARC paint, with CARC paint.

Plastisols For Military Use

Plastisols are very versatile, offering a multitude of application & processing possibilities. Properly cured (fused) plastisol can offer a wide variety of physical properties & attributes, all depending on the formulation. Plastisols are dispersions of PVC resin in plasticizers and modified with other raw materials to yield the desired properties of the end user. Plastisols can be applied via dip spin coating methods. Plastisol coatings offer some very useful purposes for military application i.e. electrical insulation, abrasion resistance, impact resistance, weather and corrosion resistance, flame retardancy, Flexibility, UV Resistance, Mildew Resistance, Electrical Resistance, Dielectric Strength, Chemical Resistance, Military Specs (# A-A-59464A).
