PAXCON: Blast Mitigation

Request Information


PAXCON can be applied to numerous types of structural materials:

  • Wood
  • Steel
  • Plasterboard
  • Concrete
  • Brick
  • Block
  • And more

Put into action

To demonstrate the coating’s abilities, explosive experts and researchers at New Mexico Institute’s Energetic Materials Research and Testing Center (EMRTC) conducted a series of explosions to confirm the protective capabilities of PAXCON®. Two identical concrete structures were built, one left uncoated and one coated with PAXCON. Both structures contained an office setting complete with dummy, desk, and computer equipment. Then a bomb the equivalent of 200 lbs. of TNT and 5 lbs. of C4 was detonated 30 feet from the structure. “The dummy in the PAXCON protected room was unscathed,” said Alan Perryman, EMRTC’s Research Engineer and Test Specialist. “A little dust kicked up, and the walls flexed and pounded like drums, but everything held up just fine. We at EMRTC are very impressed with the way the PAXCON protected room held up.”

Since the Khobar Towers bombing in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia in June of 1996, the U.S. Government has been testing elastomeric polymers like PAXCON for blast mitigation. PAXCON was founded to be the only coating, out of 27 tested, to pass all of their bomb blast tests (Air Force Laboratory Force Protection Branch). PAXCON has been applied and is protecting several buildings around the world, including the U.S. Pentagon, the Federal Court House in NY, the Washington Naval Base, and several buildings throughout London.

Sd Testimonial

"Everybody noticed how our tractors are scratched by the carts and dollies and how the self-propelled belt loaders are scratched along the body. I researched many coatings, and we chose LINE-X because it provides excellent levels of abrasion and impact resistance. Even in the most massive hits, there are no scratches!"

"I asked to have a quote to spray the floor of our reptile house. LINE-X pricing was competitive and the crew went above and beyond to make sure that everything was properly prepped and finished to the highest level. I would recommend LINE-X to anyone."
