Paxcon Blast Mitigation

I had a quick look at spall liners in a recent Vehicle Protection Factors post. Paxcon from the US firm Linex is a good example so a more detailed look is in order.

An even more interesting application is that of blast mitigation for buildings field defences.

Because it is lightweight and easy to apply it can be used on existing buildings with ease.

Neat stuff

Neat stuff indeed TD. Military uses are obvious, just a pity it’s not translucent so can’t be applied to glass. I wonder how much a coating on each side of an object increases its weight, e.g. for body armour?
