- Chemical Agent Resistant Coating
Chemical Agent Resistant Coating is the term for the paint commonly applied to military vehicles which provides protection against chemical and biological weapons.
The surface of the paint is engineered to be easily decontaminated after exposition to chemical warfare and biological warfare agents. The paint is also resistant to damage and removal by decontaminating solutions. Two-component systems (e.g. epoxy or polyester-based) are often employed.
