US Global Aerospace has introduced a new line of Blast-X lightweight blast mitigation materials available in flat and conformable panels.

Blast-X is comprised of four unique materials: a face sheet designed to quench hot gases instantly and attenuate shock waves; a honeycomb core to cushion impact and add structure to the assembly; a core medium filling the honeycomb devised to rapidly cool blast environments and extinguish flame fronts from burning gases, dust and mist; and a back panel made of USGA’s patent-pending G-Lam anti-ballistic material to contain blast fragments and debris.

Blast mitigation reduces the impact explosions have on people and property, making it applicable to environments at risk from potential terrorist or accidental explosion. Blast-X is designed to be an environmentally safe, cost-effective technical solution for countering the threat of criminal and terrorist bombing incidents by dramatically reducing shock waves and blast impulse, suppressing fireballs and killing after-burn, thus significantly enhancing protection of facilities, structures and most importantly, their occupants.
