The proprietary MG-100 protective coating from DSS (Stand N5-276) is claimed to take polymer technology to the next level. Not only does it give unmatched blast mitigation, but it also mitigates the concussive force of a blast and holds together the materials of the coated substrate. Being chemical and water resistant, it can be sprayed onto other substrates, such as metal and concrete. It contains no volatile organic compounds or solvents.
According to Kevin Billings, executive vice-president and managing director of DSS’s North American distributor, MG-100 has wide applications for blast enhancements of bridges, tunnels, buildings, pipelines, vessels and vehicles.
‘‘Combined with its chemical corrosion-resistance properties and weather proofing, MG-100 has the ability to increase survivability and decrease stand-off distances for any structure,’’ he said.
