Examples of Specifications we currently work to:

Chemical Agent Resistant Coatings (CARC)

These finishes are used extensively on military vehicles, communications systems, weaponry and all ancillary equipment. The coating produces a non-porous surface that impedes chemical, radioactive and biological contaminants from penetrating the paint and base materials. CARC resists chemical attack from the aggressive cleaning detergents used for decontamination of the equipment. Coatings offered can include IRR Properties and come in various colours and gloss levels.
