ARMY - MIL-PRF-32440B (1)
COATINGS, CHIP-, IMPACT-, WEAR-, AND ABRASION-RESISTANT
|Publication Date:||10 September 2020|
This specification covers chip-, impact-, wear-, and abrasion-resistant coatings for use on areas of military vehicles or ground support equipment which may encounter diminished service life through damage. Examples of subject areas are bed liners and cargo beds of trucks, undercarriages of ground support equipment, torsion bars, and other areas subject to chipping, impact, wear, or abrasion, which may compromise the established quality and function of the original equipment manufacturers (OEM) part along with traditional coatings, promoting corrosion and other detrimental effects.

The chip-, impact-, wear-, and abrasion-resistant coating covered by this specification is intended for use on areas of military vehicles or ground support equipment that may encounter chipping, impact, wear, and abrasion. The coating is a 100 percent solids, chemical cure lining used in protecting profiled, cleaned, and primed (when required) wood, concrete, rigid plastic, fiberglass, elastomeric plastic, and metal substrates. The coating and lining system is intended for protection against abrasion, stone and gravel impact, mild chemicals, corrosion, vibration, and sound emission over a wide temperature range. This material is designed for use as a durable protective layer for abrasion resistance on vehicle interior surfaces such as doors and floors, and abrasion-prone vehicle exterior surfaces such as wheel wells, undercarriages, footsteps, equipment storage areas and beds for tactical, combat, and construction equipment.View Less
