BlastGard International Completes Successful Oil Pipeline Test

Company's BlastWrap used to mitigate C4 explosion against oil pipeline

Gordon explains "What is needed is a new technology that will offer passive protection against explosive sabotage and our oil pipeline tests is a dramatic demonstration of how simply oil and products lines can be protected using BlastWrap and in order to provide additional durability, and especially to create a "stealth" protection appearance, all BlastWrap-protected sections would be jacketed with any of a number of commonly available linepipe jacketing materials, which will provide additional security for the product and disguise the application."

Blast mitigants such as BlastWrap have been shown to effectively protect oil pipelines from explosive attack. The complete report on this study and a video of the test can be found on the company's web site at
