Defense division

AirBoss Defense is a world leader in the design, development, and manufacture of Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear (CBRN) personal protective equipment.

For more than 40 years, we have supplied military and first-response forces worldwide with hand wear, footwear, and respiratory protection from CBRN agents and extreme cold weather.

In addition to protecting against CBRN threats, our hand wear and footwear are effective against a wide range of Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TIC’s). All AirBoss Defense products integrate with the world’s most popular CBRN suits and other military equipment. Ergonomics and comfort surpass user requirements.

We operate manufacturing sites in Acton Vale (Quebec), and Milton (Vermont), as well as an R&D Centre in Bromont (Quebec).

Our facilities house 16 injection presses to mould all types of rubber polymers; specialising in tight tolerance irregular shapes, difficult to inject polymers such as halo-butyls, and FDA grade silicones. Compounding our own rubber formulations, we control our process from the very beginning to the end.

AirBoss Defense is the supplier of choice of CBRN hand and footwear to the U.S. Joint Services and Canadian Armed Forces.
