Military & Security
Maximizing Visual Clarity and Physical Safety
When the mission is as dangerous as it can be, the protection must be as complete as it can be.
Protect those who protect us by maximizing the performance and durability of their equipment.
SDC’s CrystalCoat® coatings deliver uncompromising visual clarity that is imperative to military, defense, and security applications. Premium multi-purpose abrasion, chemical, impact and scratch resistance features also provide protection for bullet or shatterproof glass.
Our Subsidiary FSI Coating Technologies also offers a wide range of complementary anti-fog coating and film solutions for the military and security industry.
