For many years, military and law enforcement personnel in Eastern European countries used low-cost ballistic solutions, like thick steel and heavy ceramic plates, to protect against threats faced on the job. Today, modern threats and new material innovations are driving the adoption of lightweight armor solutions – and that goes for both personal and vehicle armor applications.
Of course, that’s no surprise. Composite solutions made with Dyneema® fiber can reduce the overall weight and thickness of protective armor with no compromise on performance, making them a preferable choice. The weight saved can be reallocated to additional personal protective equipment to improve blast protection or, in vehicle armor applications, can improve fuel economy and prevent mechanical stress. Over a vehicle’s 10-yearlife span, these savings will outweigh the initial cost of armoring a vehicle with lightweight alternatives.
