Transparent Ceramic Armor

An independent analysis shows the optical properties of FastFuse laminated armor panels meet or exceed military specifications. The balistic performance is also comparable to autoclaved windows.

  • Several layers of glass, transparent ceramics, & structural plastics
  • TPU -preferred bonding interlayer
  • Total thickness 1” to 6”
  • 3 to 7 interlayers per armor panel
  • Long, energy intensive autoclave processes used currently

Opportunities for Armor

  • Uniformity – simultaneous lamination of multilayers
  • Time savings – critical development, production
  • 95 to 98% energy reduction over autoclaving
  • Alternative to autoclave
