Aluminium oxide has become widely used in ballistic threat defence as a material with a high protective performance at low weight
QSIL offers ceramic plates for use in protective modules. Our precise manufacturing of ceramics creates plates with high fitting precision.
The strong protective effect of Aluminium oxide arises from the nullification of threatening projectiles on impact as well as dissipation of a large part of the kinetic energy.
Modern ballistic protection is based on composite armour where ceramic plates are bonded with a protective fabric to form a module. Optimum protection requires a coordinated system. Special plate geometries best meet the requirements of protection against multiple ballistic threats.
- Custom-fit design (panels, arrays)
- Standard components (cylinders, rectangular plates, hexagonal plates)
