The benefits of CARC (Chemical Agent Resistant Coatings) powder vs. liquid paint
August 7, 2020
The U.S military has many demanding specifications to fulfill when it comes to the finish of their products. Color and gloss are very important aspects - from concealing equipment in the desert to camouflage patterns that reduce detection in the field. However, in order to sustain certifications these color finishes must also protect the equipment from the harsh environmental aspects. Therefore, in 1985, most military vehicles and equipment required a topcoat applied with camouflaged CARCs. These topcoats produced a non-porous finish that acted as a protectant against radioactive, biological and chemical contamination. CARC repelled the chemical by preventing absorption, with chemicals beading up on the finish surface where they could be easily washed away.
