Ballistic Armour is a generic term for a protective layer of material that protects a person or object from projectiles. The common requirement of all systems is to dissipate the projectile energy with minimal damage to the target. This requirement for energy dissipation is where multi-layer composites can provide some advantages.

Compression moulding is a precise and potentially rapid process for producing high quality composite parts in a wide range of volumes. It typically employs a matched metal tool in a heated (hydraulic) press to consolidate sheet materials or moulding compounds at relatively high pressures.

Statistics is a branch of mathematics that deals with managing data and evaluating logically how well it fits a preconceived pattern or model. Similarly a large part of composites R&D and materials science is concerned with generating data and using it to support a hypothesis. The use of statistical methods is therefore absolutely critical to […]
