Spectra Shield Armor Panels

Tactical Entry Vest

Spectra Shield© 50″x63″ Vehicle Armor Panels are the strongest, lightest, composite ballistic material made today! Spectra Shield isn’t a woven fabric like most ballistic materials, but is rather a thin, flexible ballistic composite made from two layers of unidirectional fibers held in place by flexible resins. These fibers are arranged so they cross each other at 0 and 90 degree angles, then, both fiber and resin layers are sealed between two thin sheets of polyethylene film similar to sarran wrap. Spectra Shield is ten times stronger than steel. We can also provide Spectra Shield Ballistic Panels in other sizes, please contact us for more information. Ballistic Protection up to NIJ Level III+.
