Mastiff Protected Patrol Vehicle

Case Study

Trimite Global Coatings has a long history of developing advanced defence coatings throughout the UK, Europe and Worldwide. With the increasing threat of chemical weapon attacks, the UK Ministry of Defence specifies chemical agent resistant coatings (CARC) for ground equipment and the use of these CARC schemes enables affected equipment to be decontaminated and returned to service.

The materials developed, tested and supplied by Trimite meet all the requirements of DEF STAN 80-225. They also offer infrared camouflage making painted items more difficult to detect using infrared night vision detectors. The Trimite CARC products have been specified on some of the biggest military vehicle build programmes in Europe appearing on the Mastiff, Ridgeback, Jackal and Warthog armoured vehicles.

As a company we have successfully contributed to a wide number of Urgent Operation Requirements (UOR). In addition to the CARC coatings, we have developed a military approved infrared reflecting polyester powder coating to Defence Standard 80-122 which has been used on military vehicles, storage lockers and small arms.
