Paramount Metal Finishing Offers Military Specification CARC Coating

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.

Personalized Military-Grade Government Metal Finishing

The customized military-grade government metal finishing that is available right now through Paramount Metal Finishing for their next military-based project includes zinc nickel alloy plating, which is often specified as either ASTM B841 or AMS 2417.

The zinc nickel alloy government metal finishing exhibits outstanding corrosion resistance on steel, even to the point of outperforming electro-galvanized or zinc plating and being comparable to cadmium.

Not only that, this government metal finishing shows superior corrosion protection over zinc at temperatures of up to 500 degrees F, as well as over 800 hours of salt spray protection until red rust, in accordance with ASTM B117 5% neutral salt spray testing.

This military-grade zinc nickel coating is made to be cost effective while keeping the top-notch quality standards that customers are used to and the protection performance they expect from the plating through Paramount’s extensive capabilities.

The government metal finishing comes in bulk barrel and rack plating lines. A rack work envelope that measures 110” long by 50” high by 18” deep with a weight capacity of 1,500 lbs is readily available for zinc nickel alloy plating seekers.

Government Metal Finishing

Paramount Metal Finishing offers several different zinc nickel plating specifications with particular types and classes that further define the specification. It’s widely accepted that better corrosion protection comes from coatings that have a higher nickel percentage.

One of our zinc nickel alloy plating specialists can speak with customers 24/7 to help find the right coating for their respective project. Many of the available choices are designed to comply with Restrictions of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) standards to better protect the environment.

Consumers can have peace of mind since Paramount’s qualified staff monitors and audits the creation processes to make sure that the plating characteristics and performance are testing at the company’s in-house laboratory prior to approval for shipping.

The firm has had years of experience creating zinc nickel alloy plating for clients with a variety of government-grade projects and will make sure all of the customer’s needs are met.
