AUSTIN, TX – Austin-based bioengineering company Reactive Surfaces announced the general availability of WMDtox™, the world’s first self-decontaminating coating that protects firearms, vehicles, equipment and uniforms by neutralizing organophosphorous chemical agents such as sarin.

WMDtox is a clear coating that has been specially formulated to meet military specs for CARC overcoats. Reactive Surfaces is providing WMDtox to Mississippi-based weapons coating company Birdsong Firearms as a weapons coating for military personnel and first responders.

The coating creates a safer environment for soldiers and first responders by mitigating the immediate impact of contact with nerve agents. It allows rapid reclamation of contaminated equipment and can be applied months in advance.
