B4C Armor Materials for Ballistic Protection

Customized High Performance Solutions for Lightweight Armor Composites Systems.

As engineers strive to make aircraft, vehicles and other structures lighter, faster and more efficient, there is a need for lightweight, high temperature, high performance ceramics and composites. We provide engineered materials solutions that not only meet the performance requirements of the next generation but also do so in a cost-efficient manner.

  • We can also custom engineer materials or armor solutions to achieve the specifications of a particular customer

Customizability
We design unique materials and armor solutions to meet the specific needs of the customer.

Technology
The key technology is X-protect. X-protect materials have a proprietary binder system that enables various oxide and non-oxide ceramics to be injection or compression molded into complex shapes. During the proprietary heat treatment process that follows, the binder is converted to a number of oxide or non-oxide ceramics with tailorable nano-structures.

Characteristics

Introducing a line of X-shape Armor Systems to defeat ball round and armor piercing threats. Xshape Armor Systems have the following design characteristics

With its agile and readily deployable flight performance compared to other compact fixed-wing UAV systems, Skeldar V-200 gets closer to the action, keeping one step ahead.

X-shape Materials
X-shape systems use proprietary materials (ceramics/polymers) that provide ballistic properties. Many other systems have resins that simply bind fabrics together.

Low Fabric Content
X-shape systems absorb energy through engineered fabric movement within a material matrix. As a result, the amount of high cost ballistic fabrics can be reduced.

Gradient Architecture
X-shape systems use a gradient of materials for improved energy transfer.
