Bayer MaterialScience has developed a blast-mitigating laminate material that meets federal anti-terrorism force protection standards for blast-resistant glazing.

The Hygard polycarbonate laminate system, designed for critical buildings and other structures, can be tailored to protect against a range of threat levels, according to the manufacturer. The material can be also be used for retrofits on existing structures that require a higher level of security.

Laminate Over Steel

The system combines the aesthetics and impact resistance of Hygard EX1750 polycarbonate laminate panels with a high-strength, energy-absorbing, steel mounting structure.

 The system combines the aesthetics and impact resistance of Hygard EX1750 polycarbonate laminate panels with a high-strength, energy-absorbing steel mounting structure.

Hygard EX Laminates are engineered to meet and exceed General Services Administration, Department of Defense, and State Department anti-terrorism force protection standards for blast-resistant glazing, according to the manufacturer.

Bayer MaterialScience says the system can protect and provide a decorative appearance to new and existing buildings, allowing most buildings to be upgraded to higher blast-protection levels than previously possible.

The manufacturer recommends the system for urban settings where standoff distance is greatly diminished.

Dr. Volker Benz, of Bayer MaterialScience, discussed the new technology in  “A new blast-mitigation solution for building facades protection with a laminated polycarbonate-based system,” a presentation at the International Conference on Structures Under Shock and Impact, held last week in Greece.

Bayer MaterialScience LLC is a leading global producer of polymers and high-performance plastics in North America and is part of the global Bayer MaterialScience business.
