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.

Chemical Agent Resistant Coating
Chemical Agent Resistant Coating is a paint commonly applied to military vehicles to provide protection against chemical and biological weapons. The surface of the paint is engineered to be easily decontaminated after exposure to chemical warfare and biological warfare agents. The paint is also resistant to damage and removal by decontaminating solutions. Two-component systems (e.g. […]
CARC (Chemical Agent Resistant Coating) is a paint used on military vehicles to make metal surfaces highly resistant to corrosion and penetration of chemical agents. Inhaling CARC during the painting and drying process can be harmful. Dry CARC poses no hazards, except during welding or sanding. If you are concerned about exposure to CARC paint […]
What is the Powder Coating Process?
The powder coating process is a dry painting process that is mainly used for coating metal. There are several methods for applying powder coating. The most commonly used method is spraying electrostatically charged particles of pigment and resin onto an electrically grounded piece. Heat is used to melt the powder, causing it to flow, form […]
What Is Powder Paint?
Powder paint is a dry, colored powder that is sprayed onto a steel structure by using a special application gun that uses air to discharge the powder. The special powder paint is positively charged while the material the powder is being applied to is negatively charged, causing the powder to stick to the steel. Once […]
