Arm-R-Coat fuel tank

ARM-R-COAT™ is a proprietary military fuel tank coating designed to seal a fuel tank after it has been penetrated by a ballistic projectile, ideal for use on security vehicles, VIP transportation, armored cars and military vehicles. ARM-R-COAT™ can allow any vehicle to continue operating after its fuel tank has been compromised by a bullet or ballistic projectile. Tested and approved by an independent laboratory, ARM-R-COAT™ provides peace of mind to those in harm's way.

Arm-R-Coat Applications

ARM-R-COAT™ is available in four levels of protection:

Level Seals Against Applicable Standard Weight sq / ft Coating Thickness
I 7.62 mm / .308 cal NIJ Level III 1.12 lbs .200 inches
II 7.62 mm / .308 cal NIJ Level III 1.80 lbs .325 inches
III 12.7 mm / .50 cal **STANAG Level III+ 2.50 lbs .450 inches
IV 14.5 mm / .50 cal FSP **STANAG Level IV 3.20 lbs .575 inches
