What are Ballistic Composites?

Ballistic composites represent high-performance fibers capable of absorbing the shock and impact energy caused by explosions. They comprise of layered structural composites with polymer matrix reinforced with glass, carbon, para-aramid fibers, etc., for enhanced strength and stiffness. Ballistic composites are generally utilized as raw materials to manufacture helmets, vests, body and vehicle armours, shields, etc. They provide various advantages, including resistance to heat and corrosion, high thermal conductivity, durability, etc. Consequently, ballistic composites find extensive applications across several industries, such as defence, automotive, aviation, aerospace, etc.
