PPG Industries Signs Deal with Ebtech to Manufacture Mil-Tough ICB Blast and Ballistics Panels

PPG Industries’ (NYSE:PPG) fiber glass business has entered into an agreement with Ebtech Industrial under which PPG will manufacture Mil-Tough inorganic composite binder (ICB) blast and ballistics panels that Ebtech Industrial will market and sell to customers for building and asset protection.

A global supplier of modular protective systems, Ebtech Industrial designs, manufactures and installs rapid-deployment, customizable systems that offer multiple levels of blast and ballistics protection for new, temporary and existing structures. The company has created multi-story installations for U.S. troops serving overseas.

PPG’s portfolio of solutions for blast and ballistics applications recently expanded with the introduction of Mil-Tough ICB panels. These precast, fiber glass-reinforced panels offer strong blast and ballistics resistance in thinner, lighter forms than possible with traditional steel-reinforced concrete systems, according to Kevin Richardson, market development manager, PPG Fiber Glass. “In addition to protecting reliably in testing against various National Institute of Justice ballistics and Government Services Administration blast threat levels, the technology also offers excellent resistance to high temperatures and fire,” he said.

Additionally, PPG’s ICB panel technology may be enhanced with Mil-Tough SM “Spall Master” polyurea coating, which adds protection against ballistics fragmentation.

"By combining PPG's new panel technology with Ebtech Industrial’s expertise in creating customizable, rapid-deployment modular systems, we can offer customers an ideal solution for protection where and when it’s most needed in areas of conflict around the globe,” said Ebtech Industrial President Mario Kyd. “Additionally, we can help customers to contain costs by providing an advanced blast- and ballistics-mitigation system that is reconfigurable to support multiple missions.”
