GlasArmor™ Ballistic Resistant Panels and ThermoBallistic™ Thermoplastic Panels
Ballistic resistant composite panels from Avient are constructed to provide any facility with military grade protection. Originally developed for protection from mortar fire, fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) composite panels offer superior ballistic resistance at less than 25 percent the weight of a comparable steel panel.
GlasArmor™ thermoset panels are constructed from layers of 0°/90° woven E-glass fiber reinforcements with a proprietary resin system. Panels are available for protection to UL 752 levels 1, 2, & 3 and NIJ Levels I, II, & IIIA test standards for ballistic resistance.
ThermoBallistic™ thermoplastic panels are thermally formed with layers of 0°/90° unidirectional E-glass fiber reinforcements with polyolefin-based resin systems and are available for protection to UL 752 level 3. Additional protection against higher power ammunitions can be achieved by layering multiple panels; contact Avient for more information regarding your specific application.
The unique composite matrix of the panels allows for retention of the projectile to avoid potentially hazardous ricochet. Panels can be field-fabricated utilizing simple installation methods and common carpentry tools. For more information on UL 752 and NIJ specifications, installation instructions, and available sizes, download the Avient Ballistic Resistant Composite Panels Product Selection & Installation Guide.
