BallisticSkin™ super-polymer technologies are designated into 3 groups: BS-NEAT, BS-LAM and BS-SM. BS-NEAT may be cast optically clear to a thickness of 1.25″ (31mm) to handle intense hand gun fire at close range with fire-power from multiple rounds of 44 magnum, 9 mm and 45 caliber bullets. As shown in shown Fig. 1 a couple of 45 caliber bullets were stopped at a depth of .375″ into BS-NEAT at close range.
BS-LAM is specifically designed for composite builds using numerous inner members such as ultra hard steels, ceramics, kevlar fabrics and ultra-dense engineered thermoplastics. BS-SM is an ultra tough energy absorbing skin used primarily in shrapnel mitigation.
BallisticSkin super-polymer materials are capable of absorbing very high impact energy, extremely high tear resistance and can withstand high heat capacities whereby demonstrating ultimate toughness. The spray version of BallisticSkin (BS-SM) is used to strengthen a variety of military grade substrates used for transportation vehicles, armament assemblies and structural building reinforcement as shown in Fig. 2 where BS-SM is sprayed on a high strength very hard steel panel at a thickness of 3.6 mm. Shown from the back side, the left hand side shows the dark green BS-SM super-polymer coating strengthening the hard steel keeping it from shattering into shrapnel and panel failure cracking.
BallisticSkin™ super-polymers are used in some type of ballistic shielding applications. These materials may be applied to many types of structural substrates which include high strength steel, 6061 Aluminum, high-strength composites, wood laminates, reinforced masonry and concrete. These unique materials provide extreme protection for safe-houses, personnel vehicles, government buildings, armed outposts and special aircraft.
