Polyethylene HT

Polyethylene HT panels are designed to meet the following specifications:
  • Ultra light weight
  • Resists chemicals, UV light, and water
  • Defeats multiple round threats
  • Exceed National Institute of Justice ballistic standards

Automotive Armors Polyethylene HT (HT UHMWPE) High Tenacity Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene panels are created from spinning process in which the fibers are drawn, heated, elongated, and cooled. This leads to molecular alignment, high crystallization, and low density. Fibers have long molecular chains that transfer load more effectively to the polymer backbone.

  • Maximum strength, and low density
  • 15 times the strength of steel (pound for pound)
  • 40% stronger than aramid (pound for pound)
  • Neutrally buoyant

Ballistic defeating properties up to NIJ level III
(Defeats 7.62X51mm 2750 fps, and lesser threats)

Higher levels of ballistic protection available
