PPG Industries’ Protective and Marine Coatings business (PPG-PMC) recently announced it has partnered with Physical Security LLC to apply MIL-TOUGH® BR polyurea coating to help customers meet requirements of the U.S. Department of Defense Unified Facilities Criteria and the Interagency Security Committee Physical Security Criteria for Anti-Terrorism Force Protection (ATFP).

“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, manager of government sales, PPG. “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 are 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.

The MIL-TOUGH BR coating system is a spray-on polyurea formulation that offers blast mitigation in buildings and reportedly provides a fast, cost-effective alternative to traditional structural steel or concrete systems, Stern said. Because it is sprayed on-site, the coating can reportedly reduce the construction time associated with wall hardening, and it is suited to retrofitting existing structures.
