Paramount adds CARC Powder Coating to growing list of finishes!

Carc Powder Coating

37070 Black and 33446 Desert   Tan

Paramount Metal Finishing continues to stay on the leading edge of finishing by introducing a new form of coating for military customers, a Chemical Agent Resistant Coating (CARC) powder coat. With the government’s approval of spec MIL-PRF 32348 Type III, Paramount is proud to become one of the few finishers to offer CARC powder coat as an option for their customers.

CARCs are optimal for military applications because of the unique set of properties they contain. Key properties of CARCs include the ability to withstand harsh chemicals of decontamination, ability to withstand extreme weather, keep a low gloss unit, and also emit the proper infrared signal.

The push for the development of a CARC powder is the result from an extensive list of advantages that powder coating has over its wet spray predecessor. With advantages in categories like cost, application, consistency, worker safety, and environmental safety, powder coating makes a great alternative when the situation allows for it.

Paramount Metal Finishing currently offers CARC powder coating in two colors; Desert Tan (FED STD #33446) and Black (FED STD #37070). We also look forward to adding Green (FED STD #34088) when made available from suppliers.

Lead by a desire for new applications and technology in finishing, PMF remains committed to stay on the leading edge of finishing.

Paramount Metal Finishing Announces Its CARC Coating Meets Military Specifications

Paramount Metal Finishing is pleased to announce that the company’s range of Chemical Agent Resistance Coatings (CARC) for military vehicles meet the latest military specifications.  The CARC military coatings adhere to the latest advancements in military specifications to withstand severe weather and wear intensive environments. These highly protective coatings can also be effectively decontaminated after exposure to chemical and biological warfare agents.

CARC coatings are intended to withstand the harsh chemicals that are used to wash down military vehicles and equipment that has been exposed to a chemical warfare agent, such as nerve gas. The coatings need to withstand the corrosive nature of the decontaminating chemicals (mostly solvents).

CARC Coating

CARC CoatingA CARC coating usually consists of an epoxy or polyurethane that is so resistant to decontaminating chemicals that if military equipment were to come into contact with a chemical warfare agent, that military personnel could take the equipment out from the field and wash it down with the strong solvents to remove the chemical agent. Coatings that are not resistant to the decontaminating solvents tend to soften and can put personnel at risk of touching the chemical agent. Even a very small amount of a chemical agent that comes into contact with personnel’s skin can cause death.

Paramount Metal Finishing applies CARC coatings on a regular basis in primarily 3 colors; green, black and desert tan.  Other colors may be available depending on government approval.
