Technology reduces Taliban successes in Afghanistan, Petroleum Review, September 2012, p 16

In US, troops are using road tankers modified with coatings of self-sealing high-impact technology (HIT) polymers that expand rapidly on contact with hydrocarbons, blocking any bullet holes. The three-coat BattleJacket Fuel Cell Containment System (FCCS) is sprayed onto the tank to a total thickness ranging from 7.5 mm to 25 mm, and promotes:
* a tightly bonding coating
* a composite of micro expansion beads
* a top coat to shrink and provide durability.
