CARC topcoats | CARC paint suppliers

Chemical Agent Resistant Coatings (CARC) are used by the Department of Defense (DoD) for the protection of military assets. Current solvent-borne and water-dispersible CARC topcoats contribute approximately 2.3 million pounds of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) to the environment each year. For decades, the DoD has recognised the need to develop powder coatings, which contain no solvents, as a means to greatly reduce these emissions. The key challenges to developing powder coatings for CARC topcoats are achieving chemical warfare agent resistance, extremely low gloss, and superior exterior durability.
