DuraShock is a composite armor material made of Boron Carbide and Silicon Carbide—licensed from Precision Ceramics USA—for exceptional multi-hit performance against ballistic threats.
DuraShock offers the best combination of cost, high ballistic performance and low areal density67. Suitable for personnel and vehicle armor, it offers improved impact behavior. Because of the high percentage of Silicon Carbide, it also offers low cost.
- Boron Carbide/Silicon Carbide ceramic hybrid
- Low cost
- Unique microstructure with aggregated SiC provides toughening by crack deflection
