AeroLite Armor NIJ Level III rated anti-ballistic glazing with heightened bullet resistance for critical military and security applications has been introduced by Llamas Plastics, Inc. The glazing delivers superior protection in military, industrial and commercial applications where the threat of terror or bullet penetration is a concern. AeroLite Armor is manufactured with MAKROLON® AR1 polycarbonate sheet, a product of Sheffield Plastics Inc., a Bayer MaterialScience Company. With this robust component, AeroLite Armor has withstood long and short-term abrasion and field testing to deliver the proven hardest surface of any polycarbonate sheet in the industry. AeroLite Armor offers exceptional bullet resistance while delivering 75-77 percent light transmission-one of the highest rates in the industry. When competitive products can become totally obscured, AeroLite Armor panels remain visible for a potentially life-saving advantage.
MAKROLON AR1 polycarbonate sheet couples glass-like surface hardness with the impact strength of polycarbonate. This durable sheet offers dependable resistance against abrasion and UV, preventing yellowing and hazing for longer service life in high-profile applications. The weight advantage MAKROLON provides is of special significance, as AeroLite Armor weighs 25-30% less than comparable products and is less than 2 inches in thickness. The lightweight MAKROLON construction makes AeroLite Armor easier to apply and use while providing rugged, reliable protection for combat vehicles, flight control towers, federal buildings and other sensitive locations. AeroLite Armor's increased visibility and weight-saving advantage makes it ideal for use in gun port applications, and it's high performance and robust MAKROLON construction is well suited for logistical housing and command centers. Plus, it offers reliable protection at a competitive price.
AeroLite Armor with MAKROLON polycarbonate sheet has been certified by independent test labs to meet and exceed the requirements of the NIJ Level III requirements, withstanding a severe test that demands multi-hit impacts with both 7.62 NATO ball-M80 (7.62 x 51 mm) and 5.56 M193 Ball (5.56 x 45mm). It is available in both flat and curved designs and, with its Deerfield urethane inner layer, provides advanced adhesive power and ultra-clarity.
