This includes featuring new Polystrand™ ThermoBallistic™ ballistic-resistant composite panels. Broadening Avient’s portfolio of protective materials, these compression molded panels made with e-glass and thermoplastic resin systems offer a cost-competitive alternative to ballistic-resistant materials made with other fibers or thermoset resins. ThermoBallistic panels provide structural bullet-resistant reinforcement to meet UL 752 Level 3 ballistic rating for interior and exterior architectural surfaces and components at a lighter weight than traditional panel materials.
Avient will also highlight the following composite materials and engineered fiber solutions that offer high strength, weight reduction, and corrosion resistance for products across a broad range of industries and markets:
