Spall protection

During a ballistic attack, most severe injuries occur and a significant amount of lives are lost due to ballistic fragmentation or spalling. PAXCON mitigates this problem by encapsulating the fragments, which will remain trapped in the PAXCON material, posing no secondary damage. PAXCON can be sprayed over virtually any surface hard enough to cause a projectile to spall, such as aluminum, ceramic, or steel.

Blast Mitigation

Known in military and research circles as an Energy Resistant Coating (ERC), this PAXCON coating is flexible, yet stronger than steel. This means that walls outfitted with the unique PAXCON coating can withstand explosions up to 20 times greater than a normal, uncoated wall.

TEST RESULTS

PAXCON partners with the industry’s most respected testing and research laboratories in the world to analyze PAXCON’s revolutionary military and defense coatings. The results from these tests below further demonstrate the revolutionary protection and durability that is PAXCON.

PAXCON passed blast mitigation field tests conducted by the Energetic Materials Research & Testing Center (EMRTC) at New Mexico Tech and the Air Force Research Laboratory as part of the Force Protection Equipment Demonstration (F.P.E.D.) show.

At F.P.E.D., PAXCON was demonstrated daily and endorsed by Air Force representatives and encouraged LINE-X to tell “the world” that PAXCON was the only coating, out of 27 selected, to pass ALL of their bomb blast tests.

At the demo site, two 9' x 9' walls were erected as the “typical construction that one would find on mobile military buildings ... used extensively in Southwest Asia by the U.S. Military.” These were constructed using 2x4 studs, 16" on center, corrugated aluminum siding, and particle board paneling. One of the two walls was coated with PAXCON. In this test, 50 pounds of TNT was used at a distance of 35 feet. The uncoated wall (white) was destroyed, while the PAXCON covered wall was unharmed.

The Air Force Research Lab, during a previous test, found that it took the equivalent of at least 1,000 pounds of TNT to “make PAXCON fail and even then it only tore the coating … fragmentation was still averted. PAXCON could save lives if applied to buildings subjected to bomb force.”

In September 2007, PAXCON was certified by H.P. White Laboratory, Inc., one of the oldest and most respected ballistic and research centers in the nation, for its ability to protect against spalling and fragmentation during a ballistic attack.

All testing was conducted on an indoor range at ambient conditions using various caliber ammunition. The test samples were sprayed with PAXCON material and rigidly mounted 60 feet from the muzzle of the test barrels to produce zero-degree obliquity impacts. The projectiles were encapsulated in the coating, posing no further damage from spalling or fragmentation.

"I wanted a unique clean look for my custom made subwoofer speaker box, and amp rack. After pondering for a while what type of finish I should use, my fiancé suggested I LINE-X it."

"I researched many coatings including epoxy paints, industrial coatings and powder coating. My research led me to LINE-X. Even some of your local competitors told me that LINE-X was the only coating that would stand up to the punishment of a dynamic entry tool. "

"LINE-X was competitive with the other local commercial floor companies, and I chose them to install the ASPART-X flooring for the reptile building. I would like to say that the floor looks great!"
