Ballistic Protection

Ballistic Protection

Environments from military through to natural disaster require adequate protection. The development of breakthrough technology from our market leading principal has resulted in next generation solutions for high Ballistic and protective performance products. Working closely together with body armor and helmet manufacturers as well as vehicle armorers they have developed innovative customer-oriented ballistic solutions.

The history of body armour is long. But the history of comfortable body armours dates back only a few decades. High performance para-aramid fiber, has excellent energy absorption properties and offers effective and comfortable ballistic solutions with an outstanding cost-performance ratio.

Advanced fibre technology has paved the way for a new family of products such as special anti-fragmentation fabrics, stab resistant fabrics, high tenacity, light weight and impact resistant composite combat helmets and ballistic fabric laminates for vehicle armouring.
