MATBOCK Monday – Skins

Monday, January 1st, 2018

The Patent Pending MATBOCK Skins are a multi-layer adhesive/fabric laminate designed to give the user the ability to camouflage any surface desired. The Skins are waterproof and oil resistant and can be reused multiple times. Due to the adhesive’s ability to bind to the MATBOCK Ghost Lite fabric very strongly, the adhesive will not come off on the opposite surface when removing and replacing. The Ghost Lite fabric is certified Near IR Compliant as well and will not tear, fray or stretch during application and removal. Currently, MATBOCK has Skins specifically laser cut for the Team Wendy Exfil Ballistic, LTP and Carbon Bump helmets (Size 1 and 2) as well as for 3M Peltor COMTAC III Headsets.

Team Wendy and Peltor COMTAC Hesdset skins are available for purchase now. By the end of Feb, you will also be able to order all 4 sizes of Ops Core SENTRY Low Cut, FAST High Cut, FAST Super High Cut, ACH Low Cut, ECH Low Cut, Carbon Super High.

MATBOCK Monday – OsteoFX Casting System

Monday, December 18th, 2017

The OsteoFX Casting System from MATBOCK is now fully in stock and has been added to the DAPA schedule. We introduced this a few months back, but MATBOCK now has the system fully available in different diameters from 2 inches (pediatric) up to 5 inches, all in various lengths for arms and legs. The cast system is easier to use than current systems, available at the same cost, and reduces some of the risks involved with current technologies. With the roll on method, there is reduced pain to the patient during application as well as the elimination of the risk of over tightening compared to wrapping methods. Additionally, because the system can breathe and dry, there is no reason for recasting in the event of exposure to water such as showering or swimming and these activities are encouraged with the OsteoFX. The material is also radiolucent for an X-rays that may be needed after application.

“We are very excited to bring this product to market, not only for the hospital systems in the rear, but also for the operators in the field. The casting system makes a great splint or brace in the event of a turned ankle and can be made removable in cases with risks of compartmentalization.”

FDA Approved
Easy to apply with less mess
Lightweight and breathable
Water resistant for swimming and showering
Little to no skin issues
Superior radiolucency
Cost effective with reduced application times and reduced waste


MATBOCK Monday – Gunner Station Pouch and Panel

Monday, December 11th, 2017

The newest product in the MATBOCK collection comes directly from the operators. They needed a solution for a long standing problem that turret gunners have independently solved, but here is the MATBOCK solution. From helicopter door gunners, to SBT operators they have provided a great solution.


The Gunner Station Pouch and Panel are a great product for any mounted machine gun position. The panel easily secures to the platform frame or turret using 550 cord, allowing the gunner to customize their pouch with critical tools like pry-bar, lights, and CLP to name a few. Understanding that fixing a down machine gun on any platform is critical to a units survivability, we build in retractable lanyards giving the operator comfort in knowing their tools are safe to let go once the malfunction has been cleared.

Key Features:
Waterproof / durable Ghost Material construction
Quickly attach / detach the pouch from the panel with MATBOCK’s Tabs
Two saltwater resistant lanyards
Three options:

1) Gunner Station Pouch, includes 1 pouch
2) Gunner Station Pouch and 1 Panel
3) Gunner Station Pouch/Panel Kit, which includes 1 panel and 2 pouches

Application is simple, offering a 40% reduction in application time over traditional cast systems. Also, OsteoFX can be used most anywhere, including austere areas. You roll the inner material unto the affected limb, wet the outer material, roll it into place, and you have five minutes to make any adjustments before it begins to harden. The material cures as it air dries, fully cured in 15 min. Even better, you can get it wet, like showering or even swimming and the cast won’t compromise while allowing the skin underneath to dry and breathe.
