Advanced Materials

We are continually evaluating new materials for use in armor systems to make them lighter and stronger.We utilize Carbon Fiber, Aramids, Polyethylene, Nylons and other advanced fibers to create the lightest armor system using our resin matrix.

Alumina Oxide Ceramics

While it is one of the heavier ceramics it provides the lowest cost solution for many armor applications.

Silicon Carbide Ceramics

High performance ceramic for armor applications, it is capable of stopping high energy threats with minimal thickness and provides excellent multi-hit capabilities.

Advancements in Helment Tech.

Utilizing our patented resin system we can achieve greater performance with lighter weight, reducing neck injuries for the wearer.

Ballistic Testing Standards

NIJ 0101.06

This document, NIJ Standard–0101.06, “Ballistic Resistance of Body Armor,” is a minimum performance standard

NIJ 0108.01

This standard is a technical document that specifies performance and other requirements equipment should meet to satisfy the needs of criminal justice agencies for high-quality service.

STANAG 4569

NATO Standardization Agreement covering the standards for the "Protection Levels for Occupants of Logistic and Light Armored Vehicles".

MIL-STD-662F

The purpose of this standard is to provide general guidelines for procedures, equipment, physical conditions, and terminology for determining the ballistic resistance of metallic, nonmetallic and composite armor

UL 752

These requirements cover materials, devices, and fixtures used to form bullet-resisting barriers which protect against robbery, holdup, or armed attack such as those by snipers.

MIL-STD-3038

This standard covers test methods for ballistic defeat materials and solutions intended to provide protection against direct fire projectiles.

Caliber of Weapon (Selection of body armor should at least provide  protection against the officer’s own weapon)
