S-2 Glass fibers offers outstanding ballistic protection and structural performance for hard composite armor applications due to the high inherent tensile and compressive strengths of the fiber and its composite applications. The fiber’s high ultimate elongation also has been shown to play an important role in the dynamic ballistic impact-absorbing mechanism. Structural performance, protection against fire, smoke and toxicity, reduced costs and weights for a given ballistic performance are key factors considered in the defense market. AGY’s S-2 Glass fibers have been used in hard armor solutions in many defense applications, from spall liners, applique armor to composite hulls used in vehicles and ships for armies and navies in the USA, Europe and Asia. S-2 Glass solutions used in hard armor systems can meet the specifications for a large number of countries, contact your local AGY sales office to discuss your requirements.
