Ceramic Armor / Military Defense & Security

CoorsTek produces ceramic armor components used as the ballistic armor (armour) strikeface of lightweight composite armor systems. CeraShield™ ceramics, working in conjunction with an appropriate backing system, can defeat various threats including armor-piercing rounds and IEDs. Typical ceramic composite armor systems, at approximately half the weight, outperform similar steel-based systems. These systems are frequently used in body armor, vehicle armor, and aircraft armor.
