Protecto Wrap Company Announces Protecto Wrap Defense Group, Launch of Charge Adhesive Tape

Tuesday, January 10th, 2023

Denver, CO.

The Protecto Wrap Company is pleased to announce the formation of the Protecto Wrap Defense Group. Protecto Wrap Defense Group was formed to develop and supply new and innovative products to the Defense and Law Enforcement communities both in the US and abroad. Since 1952, Protecto Wrap has been an industry leader in manufacturing building products to the US and worldwide. Protecto Wrap is based in Denver, CO.

At the request of the Defense Industry and Law Enforcement, Protecto Wrap Defense Group developed and is supplying, a 100% made in the USA, CAT (Charge Adhesive Tape). CAT is a double-sided sticky tape, that forms an instant durable bond between the charge and various surfaces commonly found across the Breaching Community. CAT was derived from an industry need to supply a reliable product that is cost effective and adheres to multiple surfaces, i.e., firehose, steel, aluminum, wood/OSB, fiberglass, glass, and masonry brick/block surfaces and most importantly available and in stock. CAT can withstand temperature extremes from minus 45 degrees Fahrenheit (-42 degrees Celsius) and up to 300 degrees Fahrenheit (149 degrees Celsius). CAT even held a full-size concrete cinder block to a door during a 5-hour test.

CAT is available in 2, 4, 6, 8 and 12-inch-wide rolls, 50 feet long with each roll being shrink wrapped at the factory prior to shipping. Production CAT will ship with black release liner on both sides and be available to order January 1, 2023.

In October, Protecto Wrap Defense Group attended the Tactical Energetic Entry Systems (T.E.E.S.), 20th Annual International Breachers Symposium in Southaven, MS where PWDG featured Charge Adhesive Tape and samples to all attending Breachers from around the world. CAT was also used by all Breaching Teams participating in the T.E.E.S. range day demonstration.

Defense Mechanisms – Wedge Pouch

Thursday, December 29th, 2022

I ran across this the other day and thought it was worth a share. The use of wedges is becoming more common and it’s nice to see Defense Mechanisms is making a pouch to keep them handy.

Specifically, it’s designed to carry the 1.5″ Bushido Breacher’s Wedge but should fit similar sized items. PALS compatible, it requires MALICE clips or other adapters to mount.

Offered in a variety of patterns and colors.

Kinetic Breaching Technology: Integrated by Aardvark Tactical

Thursday, December 2nd, 2021

La Verne, CA: Aardvark Tactical is excited to announce the expansion of their portfolio with the Kinetic Breaching Tool (KBT). The KBT was purpose-built from the ground up to solve a specific problem for tactical units: filling the gap between manual forced entry and explosive breaching. This tool employs the best of physics in the form of a self-contained, jack-hammer style impact ram driven by a powder-actuated cartridge. This allows a large amount of energy to be precisely directed into locking mechanisms, hinges, or braces while minimizing the chances of collateral projectiles.

Although it weighs just 28 pounds, this tool has an energy output of 850 ft-lbs and comes with an eight-cartridge replaceable magazine. This allows the KBT to quickly breach fortifications that would otherwise be unbreachable or would simply take too long to breach, potentially exposing breachers to unsafe situations. These techniques include “Dead Man” and “Jamaican” bracing techniques, as well as outward swinging steel security screens and metal doors. The KBT also increases operator safety by allowing breachers to work from behind a shield or from the side of the door. This is a ready-to-use device that can dramatically increase breaching effectiveness and operator safety in ways that traditional breaching tools cannot.

KBT is currently in use by hundreds of units worldwide, delivering breaching solutions that minimize risk and maximize mission stability. This tool is more than a breaching device: it allows operators and units to approach their mission with heightened security.

Commenting on KBT’s technology, AARDVARK CEO Jon Becker states that: “The KBT is the most revolutionary breaching technology I’ve ever seen. It allows for extremely rapid breaching, and can bring down doors that are nearly impossible to breach without fatiguing the breacher. For large or complicated breaches, there is no other technology available that does what KBT can.”

The Kinetic Breaching Tool is available now, exclusively from Aardvark Tactical. Visit to learn more.
