Ballistic levels:

Bulletproof vests are designed to ‘trap’ and slow bullets down as they attempt to pass through the vest. Therefore, the Bulletproof Vests come in two different types; hard and soft.  For instance, the ‘soft’ armors are designed to protect against most handgun and small arms ammunition, whereas ‘hard’ armors are designed to stop high caliber and armor-piercing rounds.

About Ceramic Alumina:

Aluminum Oxide, Al2O3 is a major engineering material. It offers a combination of good mechanical properties and electrical properties leading to a wide range of applications.

Typical Alumina characteristics include:

    • Good strength and stiffness
    • Hardness and wear resistance
    • Great corrosion resistance
    • Good thermal stability
    • Excellent dielectric properties (from DC to GHz frequencies)
    • Low dielectric constant
