Mil-Spec

Mil-Spec

Protection from radioactive, chemical, and biological agents

AZZ is a leading provider of chemical agent resistant coatings (CARC) meeting military specifications (Mil-Spec) established by the U.S. government. Our high-volume production capacity enables us to meet the fast turnaround times often required by the defense industry, and our capabilities include large format and heavy equipment parts. 

CARC-Certified

In the state of Texas, AZZ is one of just a few CARC-certified suppliers. Our CARC is typically formulated from epoxy or polyurethane and rigorously tested to provide the highest level of protection against radioactive, chemical, and biological warfare agents and the corrosive, decontaminating chemicals used to wash down military equipment.

Meeting the demand for quality

Military products require superior corrosion resistance, edge coverage, and protective throw power. E-Coating is ideal to serve these needs with excellent adhesion to a variety of substrates and is a great base for CARC topcoats.

Serviceable military products include:

  • Vehicles and Cabs
  • Frame Rails
  • Wheels
  • Body Panels
