Thinner fibre glass sections now offer improved blast protection

PPG Fiber Glass : 03 December, 2009  (New Product)
The Mil-Tough system of panels for physical protection offer increased blast and ballistics protection in thinner sections and lighter forms
PPG Industries' fibre glass business has introduced Mil-Tough inorganic composite binder panels for physical asset protection, expanding the company's portfolio of solutions for blast and ballistics applications.

These pre-cast, fibre glass-reinforced ICB panels enhance blast and ballistics resistance in thinner, lighter forms than possible with traditional steel-reinforced concrete systems. Mil-Tough ICB panels also offer better temperature and fire resistance than supported by other materials typically used in security applications, according to Kevin Richardson, market development manager, PPG Fiber Glass.

The panels can be custom manufactured based on the customer-defined threat level, and they can be incorporated into either modular systems for rapid force protection or permanent structures. Modular designs provide an interconnecting infrastructure to support use in multi- and single-level buildings as well as freestanding perimeter wall systems.

PPG offers Mil-Tough ICB panel solutions appropriate for homeland security, government and military agencies' applications worldwide.

"Mil-Tough ICB panels have exhibited very good strength and ductility in blast load tests," said According to Kirk Marchandf Protection Engineering Consultants. "The technology offers advantages in weight and constructability when incorporated into architectural assemblies for blast- and ballistic-resistant applications."

Jim Peters, global manager, new application development and testing, PPG Fiber Glass, said, "PPG experts have created a complete process, from design through to delivery, to provide unique products that protect people, infrastructure and property against blast and ballistics, projectiles and explosions." He said extensive testing has proven that Mil-Tough panels protect reliably against various National Institute of Justice ballistics and Government Services Administration blast threat levels.

PPG will initially produce Mil-Tough ICB panels at a facility in Shelby, N.C.
