Protective covers are an immediate and cost-effective way to mitigate corrosion, but it’s critical to select the right cover. A cover that isn’t sufficiently air-permeable creates a greenhouse effect that both produces and traps heat and moisture – which can actually accelerate mold, mildew and corrosion.

After a multi-year R&D initiative, AMCOM developed a Protective Cover Specification that defines every requirement that must be met for a cover to be truly protective.

Cocoon covers meet every AMCOM requirement by employing the most advanced textile technologies, and can be used for vehicles, aircraft, weapon systems, ground support equipment and watercraft.

/// COCOON COVER HIGHLIGHTS

  • Waterproof while remaining highly air-permeable
  • Hydrophobic – they won’t absorb water (wet-weight = dry weight)
  • Oleophobic – they won’t absorb oils or lubricants
  • Inherently anti-static – safe to use around munitions (NOSSA approved)
  • Filters out particulates down to 0.3 microns (fine sand, e.g. “moon dust” is 1 micron)
  • No use of Vapor Corrosion Inhibitors (VCIs) which sometimes cause corrosion and are detrimental to soldier health
