CARC Painting

One of the largest non-dedicated powder coating lines east of the Mississippi

CARC stands for Chemical Agent Resistant Coatings. CARC creates a non-porous coat that provides resistance to radioactivity and biological contaminants seen in chemical warfare. These coatings can also withstand the corrosive nature of the decontaminating chemicals used to wash down military equipment. CARC systems will extend the service life of military equipment as well as vehicles. IMG_0803
