Abstract:

Cornerstone Research Group, Inc. (CRG) proposes to fully develop polyurea coatings for blast and impact resistance. Polyurea coatings show promise for increasing the blast and impact resistance of buildings and vehicles, but further development is necessary to ensure the success of these materials. Currently, there is no method for assessing the suitability of a coating for blast and impact resistance, as well as optimizing characteristics such as thickness and geometry. CRG will characterize polyurea materials on a variety of substrates and geometries, and develop a method for characterizing and optimizing the coating performance. Characterizing testing using a Universal Testing Machine (UTM) as well as real-world ballistics testing will be performed on coatings applied to a variety of substrates, with the end goal of developing an effective coating for blast and impact resistance.
