BlastGard International Inc. is a manufacturer and distributor of protective products for military and law enforcement personnel. The Corporation operates under two segments, BlastGard Defense Group and Highcom Security.

Blastguard is a blast mitigation specialist with proprietary material proven to effectively mitigate blasts and suppress fires resulting from explosions. The company's patented BlastWrap® technology acts as a "virtual tent" to effectively mitigate blast effects and suppress post-blast fires. This unique technology works by triggering physical and chemical processes to dissipate blast energy, thereby reducing the aftermath of acoustic and shock waves, peak overpressure, reflected peak overpressure, impulse and afterburn. The remaining, significantly reduced energy is transmitted at a slower, more sustainable level. Notably, BlastWrap does not dispense chemical extinguishants; uses neither alarms, sensors, nor an activation system; and is nontoxic and ecologically friendly.

Similarly, the company's BlastGard MTR trash receptacles dramatically reduce lethal threats posed by the detonation of an improvised explosive device (IED). Equipped with Triple Wall Technology, BlastGard MTR mitigates primary fragments, secondary fragments, mechanical effects (shock/blast pressure) and thermal effects (contact and radiation burn) from the fireball, after-burn and resultant post-blast fires.

BlastGard's primary market focus lies on providing blast effects mitigation solutions for customers operating in the commercial sector, military, law enforcement and government agencies. With a vision of being recognized as the leading provider of environmentally responsible solutions to protect lives and structures from the hazards associated with fire and explosions, the company is capable of addressing a wide array of industry applications spanning from fire suppression for naval vessels and merchant ships to protection of buildings against vehicle bombs.

This vision is supported by the ban of Halon extinguishing agents, as outlined in the Montreal protocol, which effectively establishes BlastWrap® as the only blast and fire suppression means available for most applications, including adaptation for underwater use.

The company's position at the head of the blast suppression market has helped BlastGard attain a number of government awards, including designation of its BlastWrap® product as a Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technology and placement on the "Approved Products List for Homeland Security." This designation was extended in early 2017, meaning that BlastWrap® is approved for use by the Department of Homeland Security under the SAFETY Act until November 2021.

HighCom Security, develops, tests, manufactures and distributes body armor and personal protective equipment, including more than two dozen NIJ (National Institute of Justice) compliant hard and soft armor products. Highcom Security has a 20-year history of producing quality armor with no operational failures and no recalls of its American made products.

Highcom Security was founded in 1997 and has produced close to 1 million pieces of armor for the Global community. The company is ISO 9001:2008 certified and the first company in the world to be BA 9000:2012 certified compliant.

For the past decade, Highcom Security has also been able to offer some of the largest armor manufacturers with private label/OEM hard armor solutions for end use by military and law enforcement agencies globally, a market reach obtained because of the company's reputation for innovative technology, exceptional customer service and superior quality performance.

BlastGard International, Inc. (BLGA) Offers Proprietary Blast Mitigation Products for Military and Commercial Sectors

BlastGard International, Inc. (OTC: BLGA) manufactures proprietary blast mitigation products for the military, commercial sector, government agencies, and law enforcement. It also provides products in the Blastgard MTR Series for personal protective gear and offers products such as mitigated trash receptacles.

The company is doing business as BlastGard Defense Group and HighCom Security. It manufactures BlastWrap® technology proprietary blast materials to mitigate blast effects and post-blast fires. Its primary market focuses on clients operating in the military, commercial sector, government agencies, and law enforcement. It also offers personal protective gear through HighCom Security.

Industry applications for its technology products include suppressing fireballs and explosions. Its products are designed for naval vessels and merchant ships and to minimize damages from breaching blasts, and to protect buildings from vehicle bombs. BlastWrap has been named a Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technology and placed on the “Approved Products List For Homeland Security.” In January of 2017, the designation and certification for BlastWrap was extended until November 2021. The company’s products are also in the General Services Administration system.

The Blastgard MTR Series is a collection of triple-wall mitigated trash receptacles designed to reduce lethal threats from the detonation of an improvised explosive device, including primary and secondary fragments and any resultant post-blast fires. The products have triple-wall technology to achieve that ability to withstand explosions. This is a Colorado corporation operating out of offices in Clearwater, Florida, with a manufacturing facility in Columbus, Ohio. It generates 99% of sales from HighCom Securities, Inc.

Simultaneously, the company serves several different markets. As it serves the military and government agencies, it is also replacing existing technologies with products for commercial needs, including entertainment industry location sets (such as Hollywood sound stages), mining extracting and processing, building demolitions, and reinforcement of masonry buildings. Other markets include underwater blast isolation units, coastal construction, monitoring stations for law enforcement, and blast protection shields for low observable camouflage properties.

BlastGard International, Inc. (BLGA) Provides Body Armor and Blast Protection as Terrorist Incidents around the World Multiply

- Unique proprietary technology meeting growing and compelling global need
- HighCom Security division is the first company in the world to achieve BA 9000 certification
- Strong connections and sales history with DOD and DHS, as well as with law enforcement and commercial entities around the world

The rising incidence of terrorist attacks around the world is not being taken lying down. America’s police departments have taken note and are gearing up, literally, to defend the homeland. To do so, to protect their officers, they are relying increasingly on body armor and blast protection products, like those from BlastGard International, Inc. (OTC: BLGA). The Florida-headquartered company has developed a line of products to protect people and property from explosive blasts. It also provides products that offer protection from projectiles. BlastGard’s protective gear includes shields, helmets, vests and plates, which provide police with the protective gear they need to do their jobs.

With an estimated 750,000 police officers, America’s 17,000 law enforcement agencies require a lot of body armor, which, typically, has a life cycle of about five years. Combining this statistic with an average 10 percent attrition rate in law enforcement (about one in 10 officers leave every year) means that, every year, approximately 30 percent of body armor purchases are repeated. That results in a steady, vibrant market for BlastGard. In July 2014, its HighCom Security division, responsible for body armor, became the first company in the world to achieve BA 9000 certification. BA 9000, released in January 2012, extends ISO 9001 requirements to manufacturers of body armor vests for federal, state, local, tribal law enforcement and corrections bodies.

BlastGard’s HighCom Security business unit is a leader in advanced ballistic armor manufacturing. Operating from a 32,865 square foot manufacturing and distribution facility located in Columbus, Ohio, the division can handle large scale, time-sensitive global supply needs. Directed from the logistics center in Florida, the unit serves customers in North America, such as the Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security, local law enforcement agencies, correctional facilities, municipal authorities and large corporations, as well as others throughout the world. Past sales have been to Asia, Africa, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East.

BlastGard’s body armor range is wide. It includes Type IIA body armor, which offers basic protection against smaller caliber handgun threats; Type II body armor, which provides protection against larger handguns, including many common smaller caliber pistols with standard pressure ammunition and against many revolvers; Type IIIA body armor, which can resist heavy pistol calibers including most law enforcement ammunition and many higher powered revolvers, and Type III and IV body armor, which provides protection against rifle rounds, generally only used in tactical situations.

BlastGard expects that, as police departments become more militarized, demand for its products and services will grow. As threats of all kinds multiply, there is mounting evidence of the emergence of a new kind of police officer, the Warrior Cop, resulting from the integration of tactical, SWAT, and special operations within the law enforcement environment. This trend is likely to fuel demand for body armor with higher protection levels and lower areal densities and designs that provide more mobility and comfort, including helmets. Areal density gives an indication of the energy absorption capability of the protective material and is computed as the weight of the armored panel in grams per square meter divided by the protection area of the panel.

The BlastGard Defense division offers BlastWrap®, a product that defuses the power of explosions and helps to suppress any fires caused by those explosions. The technology is composed of two integrated flexible films arranged one over the other and joined by a plurality of seams filled with attenuating filler material (volcanic glass bead or other suitable materials) with an extinguishing coating. It works by slowing the dissipation of energy triggered by an explosion, reducing the force of the blast and, consequently, the likelihood of fatalities. BlastGard is not only in the business of providing protection for individuals and property; it’s also in the business of saving lives.

Blastgard International, Inc. (BLGA) Provides Technologies in Line with SAFETY Act Standards

Compliant, protective, and blast-proof products can reduce damage at federal, state, and local facilities
Barriers, revetments, fuel tank jackets, and blast protection equipment are suitable for customers in commercial and military market sectors
New products or retrofits are available to customers requiring powerful blast protection and fire suppression systems
Blastgard International, Inc. (OTC: BLGA) is a manufacturer of proprietary blast mitigation products that meet the requirements of the Support Anti-terrorism by Fostering Effective Technologies Act of 2002 (SAFETY Act). Used by commercial, law enforcement, government, and military customers, the company’s blast-resistant and fire-suppressing materials provide the anti-terrorism protection specified under the Department of Homeland Security’s SAFETY Act. The legislation calls for technology that can be immediately deployed at public and private facilities, limit liability of anti-terrorism technology providers, and prevent a large-scale loss of life and economic impacts.

In addition, Blastgard’s products have been approved by the General Services Administration (GSA). This qualification streamlines procurement in that several federally-mandated contracting requirements are met. Being approved by the GSA means products such as BlastWrap® are differentiated in the market, so public and private agencies can have improved access to them. BlastWrap is on the DHS’s “Approved Products List for Homeland Security” and provides protection against strong explosions, ballistic materials, and fragments. Working indoors and outdoors, in wet/dry conditions and vented/unvented locations, it can protect property and people against solid explosives and fires caused by flammable liquids.

BlastWrap materials can be used in the cargo holds and containers of commercial aircraft, as building walls (to protect against vehicle bombs), and around fuel tanks to suppress explosions and fireballs. They have also been used on naval vessels and merchant ships, minimizing the impact from mines, torpedoes, and cruise missiles. Suitable as dividers on aircraft, ships, and offshore platforms to suppress fuel mist explosions and fireballs, the products have also been used in explosives manufacturing and handling facilities, propellant manufacturing plants, and fireworks plants as partitions and separators. Also, the company’s products have been implemented in underwater applications and entertainment industry sound stages.

The company also manufactures the Blastgard MTR Series of trash receptacles. These triple-wall containers can withstand improvised explosive devices, their fragments, and fires. Weatherproof and corrosion-resistant, the 35-gallon capacity receptacles can be customized with colors, artwork, logos, and powder coating. Each unit can resist over 4,000 pounds of horizontal and vertical force.

Usable in just about any industry, Blastgard’s products are in demand at a time when terror attacks occur on a regular basis. Recent events in Europe, including a bomb explosion at the Brussels Central train station on June 20 (http://nnw.fm/GaT2J), warrant methods of protecting personnel and civilians with equipment that can withstand explosions and fires. The incident occurred just months after terror attacks killed over 30 people in the city. Additional events and heightened alerts demonstrate the need for protection when such potentially devastating incidents cannot be avoided.
