CRC offers a wide variety of aerospace and defense coating applications and has three paint booths and a high-volume walk-in curing oven. We apply advanced painting methods to provide a comprehensive and precise application of Primers, Topcoats, Dry Film Lubricants, and Bond Primers. CRC maintains a diverse inventory of aerospace and military coatings at all times and works closely with our paint suppliers to minimize material lead times.
Chemical Agent Resistant Coatings (CARC) are used extensively on most military vehicles and equipment. These coatings produce a non-porous coat that impedes radioactivity, chemical, and biological coatings and subcontaminants from penetrating the coating and the base material.
Instead of penetrating the coating, chemicals bead up on the exterior of the surface and are washed off easily. CARC is required to resist chemical attacks from aggressive cleaning detergents used for decontamination of vehicles. In turn, these vehicles and equipment can be used over again without the concern of future contaminants along with the security of resisting further chemical attacks. CARC is a pretreatment-primer-topcoat system of coating performed typically to MIL-DTL-53072 in combination with TT-C-490.
