We offer ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMWPE), also known as high-modulus polyethylene, (HMPE), which has extremely long chains, with a molecular mass usually between 3.5 and 7.5 million amu. Longer chains serve to transfer energy more effectively to the polymer backbone by strengthening intermolecular interactions. This results in a very tough material, with the highest impact strength of any thermoplastic presently made.
We can provide different sizes and thicknesses at different protection levels, for both curved and flat applications.
NIJ 0101.06 level III: Laminated ballistic panel offers protection against 7.62x51mm NATO and 7.62x39mm AK MSC bullets, when pressed into hard plates, with a total area density reaching 22kg/m2.
