Ballistic Armor Steel When we talk about the products prepared with, these products can be one of hundreds of products, especially doors, windows, cases and huts. For security, doors, joinery and huts must be bulletproof and must meet internationally determined standards so that they never pose a security risk.
Today, the most intense threat on both civilian and military platforms is the kinetic energy bullets from modern firearms. These bullets differ in their geometric, mechanical and kinematic properties. Special types of bullets designed for a specific target and whose operating principle differs from kinetic energy bullets should also be mentioned. The physical character of the striking process that begins when the bullet hits the target depends on the combination of the bullet and target properties.
as it varies.
The most effective piercing destruction of the target is possible with armor-piercing kinetic energy bullets and hollow-spell bullets. Kinetic energy bullets do not contain explosives. The tip of the bullet is obtained by sintering from tungsten (W) or Uranium (U) material. Penetration effect of these bullets on the target; It depends on the bullet diameter, the energy of the bullet, the armor strike angle of the bullet and the metallurgical structure of the bullet and armor material.
Ballistic Armor SteelThese are the steels that are widely used in structures in threatening areas in order to resist cracking, fragmentation and fracture against multiple blows of different types of bullets (kinetic penetrators, highly explosive and disintegrating warheads etc.).
Ballistic armor steel basically contains low Carbon (generally less than %0.35). The low carbon content allows to obtain properties such as good toughness, weldability and impact resistance as well as ease of production. When examined in general, armor steels must have high hardness and strength in order to provide effective protection against the impact of kinetic energy bullets. On the other hand, in order to eliminate the negative effect of the impact, the toughness feature must be developed. Thus, ballistic armor steels require high hardness and strength while at the same time maintaining a different feature, toughness.
In order for ballistic armor steel to be used in military or civil life, its ballistic properties must be determined beforehand. In determining ballistic properties; It is the use of armor terminology consisting of many different concepts such as NATO angle, reference shot, V50 speed, witness plate, piercing and so on. There are generally two types of ignition test methods for determining ballistic durability. These:
- Determining the ballistic limit, that is, the maximum velocity (V) at which the particle can be stopped or
- V50 value is determined.
V50 hızı, parçacığın %50 olasılıkla durdurulduğu hızdır.
According to NATO standards, the protection standard of ballistic armor steel is determined by ejecting the particles to the test sample at speeds considered to be the V50 speed. To calculate the true V50 value, the three highest velocities at which the particles are stopped by the armor and the three lowest velocities of the shots passing through the armor are taken.
Our Ballistic Armor Steels are Ramor 500, Protection 500 and Armox 500 high quality bullet proof steels and have been tested at world standards Stanag 4569, NIJ, EN1522 / 1523 and VPAM.
Ballistic Steel Window joinery, doors, huts and modular ballistic equipment produced from reinforced aluminum and metal profiles can be produced in accordance with STANAG 4569, NIJ, EN 1522-23 and VPAM standards and in any size suitable for our customers' projects.
