PPG Industries’ protective and marine coatings business has launched Mil-Tough BR polyurea coating, developed in response to Anti-Terrorism Force Protection (ATFP) criteria established by the Department of Defense.

PPG has partnered with Physical Security LLC to apply the coating, to help customers meet requirements of the DOD Unified Facilities Criteria and the Interagency Security Committee’s Physical Security Criteria for ATFP.

Physical Security, PPG’s partner on Mil-Tough BR, has provided protective glazing systems for the U.S. embassy in Kabul and elsewhere.

The coating was developed to DOD’s and ISC’s criteria and then tested “thoroughly in order to create a predictable performance model for customers,” a PPG spokesman said.

“Additionally, PPG realized that the ATFP market is sufficiently different from its other markets to require a specialized approach to sales. Physical Security, with their ATFP experience and reputation, was the perfect partner to promote this product to the market.”

Pentagon, Embassy Hardening

“PPG's government solutions team has been working to develop this market, and we are very happy to bring in a partner as experienced in the ATFP market as Physical Security,” said Shirley Stern, PPG manager of government sales.

“Their strong reputation is based on experience with hardening the Pentagon’s exterior walls and providing glazing systems for U.S. embassies in Moscow, Berlin and Kabul, and it makes them an ideal partner for PPG.”

Stern said several PPG groups were working together with Physical Security to bring PPG’s polyurea technology to the ATFP market.

“The automotive OEM coatings business, science and technology group and government solutions team are all working with PPG-PMC and Physical Security to offer this solution, which brings significant performance and cost improvements for the U.S. government,” she said.

Based in Bessemer, AL, Physical Security is a specialty contractor and manufacturer for curtain wall and wall hardening solutions.

Blast Mitigation

Mil-Tough BR is a spray-on polyurea formulation that offers blast mitigation in buildings and is designed to provide a fast, cost-effective alternative to traditional structural steel or concrete systems, Stern said.

The cold-spray, zero VOC, 100% solids coating is designed to provide excellent adhesion to a variety of construction materials. The fast-cure, two-component formulation (aliphatic amine and MDI-free polyisocyanate) comes in light gray.

Because it is sprayed on site, Stern added, Mil-Tough BR coating can reduce the construction time associated with wall hardening and is especially well suited to retrofitting existing structures.

“The Mil-Tough BR coating system represents a technical leap forward in blast-resistant coatings, achieving previously unheard-of levels of blast resistance while tackling environmental and application constraints that have challenged the industry,” said Ken Hays, Physical Security vice president preconstruction.
