Trans-Acc is an experienced supplier of chemical agent resistant coatings (CARC) to the defense industry, for use in various military applications.
Our operations are Mil-Spec compliant. Our lead times are flexible and accommodating, depending on geography. Trans-Acc offers competitive pricing as well as lead times.
Our CARC coatings, usually epoxy or polyurethane, are formulated to provide the required resistance to harsh chemicals that are used to wash down military equipment, or exposed to chemical warfare agents such as nerve gas. These coatings withstand the corrosive nature of the decontaminating chemicals, predominant solvents, and play a vital role in extending the service life of military equipment as well as vehicles. Surfaces coated with our CARC systems will resist the penetration of radioactive, chemical, and biological contaminants.
Depending upon our client’s specific CARC color requirements, we utilize different air spray application methods to coat surfaces. By using specialized spray painting equipment, we can coat surfaces in solid or camouflage patterns. In addition, being an environment-conscious company, we maintain a wastewater treatment system to continually clean and monitor our waste streams according to all federal, state, and local regulations.
