Application of Bulletproof Plate
Due to its high hardness, low specific gravity, and relatively good ballistic performance, the bulletproof plate is widely used in bulletproof armor, such as the protection of vehicles and ships, as well as the protection of civilian safes and money carriers. Due to the different materials and specifications, its ballistic protection grade is also different. In the process of application, different materials and specifications can be selected according to actual needs. The bullet-proof board is made of weftless cloth made of UHMWPE fiber and then made by a special process according to the requirements of protection grade. It has the characteristics of easy disassembly and assembly, high bulletproof than energy absorption value, and the product is widely used in various bulletproof vehicles, armored vehicles, ships, and human body protection.
What is bullet proof plate?
Most body armor is made of multi-layer aramid or polyethylene PE, although this type of body armor is lighter to wear, but due to the limitations of materials and technology, according to the U.S. standard NIJ at most only IIIA level. In order to be able to protect against higher-level threats, we need to use Bulletproof Plate.
Bulletproof Plates are generally used in conjunction with body armor or tactical undershirts. There are two types of Bulletproof Plates: front panels protect the front and back of the body, while side panels protect the sides of the body. The types of materials used to make Bulletproof Plates can be roughly divided into three types: steel, polyethylene, and ceramic. Now widely used to occupy the mainstream is the ceramic bulletproof plate.
Protection Principle of Ceramic Bulletproof Plate
Ceramic Bulletproof Plates are generally made of ceramic and polyethylene PE and other materials. Its principle is: when the bullet impact Bulletproof Plate, the bullet first impact is the top ceramic layer, ceramic encounter kinetic energy of the huge bullet shattering, and will also impact the point of huge impact energy transfer to the surrounding, to absorb the huge kinetic energy of the bullet. When the bullet through the ceramic layer has lost most of the kinetic energy, when the bullet reaches the polyethylene layer, polyethylene by stretching the bullet kinetic energy consumption, and wrapped around the bullet and shrapnel. This process has little impact on the human body, playing a very good protection role.
