Blast mitigation is an obligation for sites and companies dealing with potentially explosive atmosphere like silos and several chemical specialties. The solutions are often incorporating the reinforcement of structures in order to resist to an explosion, making those structures very expensive and not often successful in case of accident arising.
Wetsuit opens the possibilities of another route by allowing to help much lighter structure support the consequences of an explosion.
The elongation and tensile strength of the Wetsuit® allows to use it for Blast mitigation application. By applying this product on a wall or on a roof, you can ensure that this structure will better retain its integrity in case of an explosion or an earthquake.
The Wetsuit® will not only maintain the structure together, avoiding the projection of pieces around that could hurt people, but will also help contain the force of the blast inside a delineated perimeter to avoid further damages to the structure.
The ballistics characteristics of Wetsuit® will also allow to absorb the energy of any part projected by the blast and diminishing or even preventing depending of its mass and energy to go through the protected area.
This application is particularly efficient for power plants using gas turbines, roofs of silos etc.
