Blast-Proof Building

The designers and engineers face the near-impossible challenge of using truck bed liner paint to protect an entire building from a massive explosion. After a remarkable test using two trucks, the team paints a purpose-built building with the material normally used to protect vehicles from scratches and knocks. Cameras shooting at 5,000 frames-per-second capture the action by the microsecond and reveal whether or not the building will survive.
