Liquid Body Armor
In the future, bulletproof vests may not be made of solid substances at all. Instead, ballistic armor may be composed of a special liquid that hardens upon contact with a bullet. This method of defense is said to offer improved protection and flexibility.
Liquid Body Armor: Advanced Ballistic Resistance Technology
The Moratex Institute of Security Technologies is one of the first companies to test STF, also known as shear-thickening fluid. This fluid is said to be not only lighter and more flexible than commonly used anti-ballistic materials, but also provides a more resilient armor.
Marcin Struszczyk, deputy director of Moratex, says that even when a bullet does not penetrate armor, the wearer can still die or be gravely hurt. However, according to Struszczyk, the new liquid armor completely eliminates this threat by reducing deflection from 4 centimeters to 1 centimeter.
Reduced deflection makes it so rounds fired at the armor will not be able to penetrate deeply. The fluid is non-Newtonian, which means that it will not scatter when it is met with a bullet. The liquid will instead become solid. Even better, once the strain inflicted on the material is lifted, the liquid in the ballistic armor becomes flexible again.
Usually, the material used in a bulletproof vest bends inwards when a bullet hits the user, preventing a fatality but still inflicting a great amount of pain. The material make-up of the fluid prevents this scenario from happening.
Another bit of good news is that eventually liquid armor will be able to protect a wearer’s arms and legs. At the moment, it is uncommon for body armor to protect anything more than a wearer’s torso due to the bulk of armor.
Liquid body armor: additional uses
Experts over at Moratex believe that in the near future, military and police forces will be able to buy the new liquid body armor. It is also possible that materials containing both the fluid and Kevlar will be used in sports equipment, road blocks and car bumpers.
Liquid armor may also be useful in the medical field by allowing for the production of puncture-resistant gloves that will defend medical professionals from cuts, needles and more. The ability of the fluid to disperse shock energy makes it very useful in preventing a plethora of injuries.
How to acquire liquid body armor
At the moment, liquid body armor is not yet ready to be used on the battlefield. This is why The Best Bulletproof Vest distributes the toughest body armor available.
We provide ballistic armor in all levels up to NIJ III, which is only one level below the maximum rated armor class. NIJ III protects against the following threats:
However, unlike other types of armor, our ballistic vest will also come with fully integrated stab, spike and edged blade protection.
The benefits of hard armor against light armor
Unfortunately, at the moment light armor still cannot outcompete hard armor. Although Kevlar is lighter than hard armor, it is still pretty bulky. It takes between 20 and 40 layers of Kevlar to create a fabric strong enough to disperse the energy of an incoming bullet. Even if the fabric does manage to stop the bullet, the pain will still be enough to stop most people in their tracks, leaving them exposed to an additional and potentially lethal attack.
The Best Bulletproof Vest spares no expense in making sure you receive the maximum amount of protection. We offer the toughest and largest bulletproof plates available on the market. Not even full metal jacket rifle rounds are able to penetrate our plates.
Currently, we are selling unbeatable protection at an unmatchable price. $299 for hard body armor with tactical features other armor suppliers would only grant upon receiving multiple additional fees and request. Shipping is 100% free and you get 24/7 access to our exceptional customer service.
