NetworkNewsBreaks – BlastGard International, Inc. (BLGA) At a Glance

BlastGard International Inc. (OTC: BLGA) specializes in manufacturing and distributing protective products for military and law enforcement, operating under two segments: BlastGard Defense Group and Highcom Security. The company’s chief focus is providing blast effects mitigation solutions for customers in the commercial sector, as well as for military, law enforcement and government agencies, with its sights set on becoming a recognized industry leader in providing environmentally responsible solutions for protecting lives and structures from the hazards associated with fire and explosions.

“BlastGard 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.”
