BallistiCrete™ Extreme performance coating.

Abuse-Ballistic- Resistant Veneer Plaster made by GigaCrete™

Ballisticrete thickness Capable to stopping multiple shots of 9 mm, 40 caliber, 357 magnum and rifle bullet up to AK 47 7.62 rounds at near point blank range. BallistiCrete is mixed and applied on site like any normal plaster or stucco but is ceramic hard and capable of stopping deadly fire from most weaponry available in the marketplace. The military and homeland security applications, goverment buildings, correctional facilities, and more. Product was presented to JETC Military EXPO in Atlanta Ga and the interest is huge. Direct applied over many substrates including ICF, EPS sprayed foam insulation, cement block, brick, concrete or existing cement based stucco.

BALLISTICRETE protective coating is an inorganic mixture of mineral binders, high quality fillers, and fibers with exceptional impact resistance. The superior ceramic like strength and hardness qualities are designed to flatten a projectile rapidly upon impact, thereby creating greater resistance to penetration. It is environmentally sustainable while providing strength, durability, and economy. It forms a strong bond with expanded polystyrene foam (EPS) with tensile bond strength exceeding the tensile strength of the foam substrate. Unlike other stucco it does not require the application of lath, unless lath is required by the local building codes. It can be applied as a single coat from 1/2" or incrementally layered whilst still in a gel state up to 2" thick depending on application. Heavy duty 20oz "panzer" mesh non combustible glass fiber mesh is embedded within the material during application. A paint finish is recommended after complete curing has taken place in 5 days. BallistiCrete is a natural limestone color and is pre-blended, mix with conventional plaster mixing equipment. It can be pumped and sprayed or hawk and trowelled. BallistiCrete comes in a 2 part package and both are mixed together onsite. Working time is approximately 1 hour at 60-70F.

ENVIRONMENTAL CONSCIOUSNESS

BallistiCrete is designed to be environmentally responsible and sustainable. It emits no pollutants even in contact with fire, no smoke, no flame and no VOC's. The Product meets emission level requirements of GREENGUARD product quality testing. BallistiCrete is at minimum 98% silica free, and does not support the growth of mold and mildew. Recognized by LEED and US Green Building Council qualifies for points
