APA is a new revolutionary, zero VOC, non-conventional exterior, 100% polyurea coating. This product has been designed specifically to deliver the toughness and abrasion resistant properties of that of an aromatic polyurea but provides the capability of retaining color-fastness for a full range of pigmented colors. Unlike conventional aromatic polyurea, which in a white pigmented system turns yellow in hours when left in direct sun light, APA systems can withstand direct harsh sunlight experiencing no color change after 1 year. APA is available with different hardness and reactivities. APA is available in 2 versions – horizontal and vertical. Horizontal APA has a gel time of approximately 30-45 seconds allowing the ability to broadcast into it if desired, whereas Vertical APA is a quick set material allowing to be sprayed vertically without running. APA has excellent adhesion properties allowing it to be sprayed on all types of surfaces including spray foams. APA complies with FDA 21CFR 175.105 and 21 CFR 175.300. APA is also available with fire retardant additives. These additives allow APA to meet ASTM E84 Class A. APA uses a mix ratio of 1A – 1B. APA may be applied using high pressure heated plural equipment, low pressure heated equipment or using cold spray 2K cartridge equipment. Recommended heater settings are 140°F for both primary heaters and hose heater. Machine pressure should be set at around 2000 psi.
BallisticSkin™ super-polymer technologies are designated into 3 groups: BS-NEAT, BS-LAM and BS-SM. BS-NEAT may be cast optically clear to a thickness of 1.25″ (31mm) to handle intense hand gun fire at close range with fire-power from multiple rounds of 44 magnum, 9 mm and 45 caliber bullets. As shown in shown Fig. 1 a couple of 45 caliber bullets were stopped at a depth of .375″ into BS-NEAT at close range. BS-LAM is specificially designed for composite builds using numerous inner members such as ultra hard steels, ceramics, kevlar fabrics and ultra-dense engineered thermoplastics. BS-SM is an ultra tough energy absorbing skin used primarily in shrapnel mitigation.
BallisticSkin super-polymer materials are capable of absorbing very high impact energy, extremely high tear resistance and can withstand high heat capacities whereby demonstrating ultimate toughness. The spray version of BallisticSkin (BS-SM) is used to strengthen a variety of military grade substrates used for tranportation vehicles, armorment assemblies and structural building reinforcement as shown in Fig. 2 where BS-SM is sprayed on a high strength very hard steel (Brinnel 60-65) panel at a thickness of 3.6 mm. Shown from the back side, the left hand side shows the dark green BS-SM super-polymer coating strenghthening the hard steel keeping it from shattering into shrapnel and panel failure cracking.
Generally, BallisticSkin™ super-polymers are used in some type of ballistic shielding applications. These materials may be applied to many types of structural substrates which include high strength steel, 6061 Aluminum, high-strength composites, wood laminates, reinforced masonry and concrete. These unique materials provide extreme protection for safe-houses, personnel vehicles, government buildings, armed outposts and special aircraft.
