Blast Mitigation Safety Foam


CONTAIN THE BLAST – AND THE COST

Explosion protection systems developed by General Plastics are being used successfully by our partners in multiple U.S. locations. The Blast-Tamer® wall system, which incorporates advanced-technology polyurethane foam, is designed to mitigate inadvertent explosion in ordnance storage facilities. It absorbs and disperses blast energy upward, not to adjoining compartments. Approved by the U.S. Department of Defense Explosive Safety Board, the system allows the storage of several types of explosives in a single space. It can improve the capacity of an earth-covered magazine by up to 800 percent compared to conventional barricade systems, effectively containing costs while containing blasts.

Advantages

  • Offers up to 8 times the storage density of class 1.1 explosives
  • Improves space utilization in existing structures at low cost
  • Absorbs and disperses blast energy upward, not to adjoining compartments
  • Permits storage of different, compatible munitions under the same roof
  • Reduces storage-site “clear-zone” size requirements
  • Easy to install; assembly does not require special skills
  • Long-lasting system that requires no maintenance
  • No degradation in strength or changes to material’s chemical properties over time
  • Ability to retrofit many existing structures of different sizes and shapes
  • Satisfies MIL-1-45208A quality systems and DOD, NRC, NNSA and DOE program requirements
  • Scalable

 Features

  • Flame-retardant, self-extinguishing materials
  • Organic material does not emit toxic fumes, leach chemicals, oxidize or support fungus
  • Kevlar®-reinforced retaining cord system maintains rigidity
  • Allows igloo storage of Division 1.1 and 1.4 explosives
  • Ready to deploy – no painting or additional finishing required
