Iraqi Testing of ArmorThane UltraBlast Coating

ArmorThane UltraBlast Coating

ArmorThane met with government and military officials in Bagdad, the capital of Iraq to demonstrate the benefits from UltraBlast Coating. A test site was built with four adjoining walls of typical concrete block masonry then coated with the specially-developed polyurea. Watch the bomb and ballistic tests that were conducted. Over 100 people including the media attended the demonstrations.

ArmorThane UltraBlast is one of the most durable and strongest coatings in the world and has physical properties which are similar to the properties of other high-quality polyureas. UltraBlast's high tensile strength and high elongation reduce cracking and fragmenting. ArmorBlast is the first product designed to guard against the threat of explosions and has been tested on a variety of structures that are made up of concrete tiles as well as cement masonry units (CMU) to mimic the public structures. These tests proved the product can significantly lessen the damage to buildings caused by explosions when compared to non-coated surfaces as well as other products.
