BallistiCrete

BallistiCrete™ interior protective coating is an inorganic mixture of mineral binders, high quality fillers and fibers with exceptional ballistic impact resistance. The superior ceramic like strength and hardness qualities are designed to flatten projectiles instantly upon impact thereby creating greater resistance to penetration. It is environmentally sustainable while providing strength, durability and economy. It forms a strong bond with many substrate materials such as foam, cement blocks, cement board, gypsum board (drywall) brick and stucco with tensile bond strength exceeding the strength of the substrate in many cases. It can be applied as a single coat from 5/8” or incrementally layered up to 2” thick depending on application. A paint finish is recommended after complete curing has taken place in 5 days. BallistiCrete is a natural off white color and is pre-blended and mixed with conventional plaster mixing equipment. It can be pumped and sprayed or hand troweled. BallistiCrete™ comes in a 2 part package and both are mixed together onsite. Working time is approximately 1 hour at 60-70F and can be finished smooth, stamped or textured.
