Ballistic Armour Materials
TitanMade® - Titanium Ceramic Composite
TitanMade® L465 is a highly advanced and patent-pending titanium ceramic composite material, ideally suited for ballistic armour applications where weight & thickness are of critical importance.
Depending on the threat level specified, integrating TitanMade ballistic tile can reduce the areal density of an armour solution by 20-30%, when compared with alumina but at lower cost than silicon carbide or boron carbide.
The superior performance of TitanMade is the result of a 5-year intensive R&D effort, and the development of advanced technology for the production of full-density in-situ composite materials with uniformly distributed and discontinuous reinforcement phases.
Compared with alumina, TitanMade has 2-3 times the Flexural Strength & Fracture Toughness. The result is a material with greater ballistic efficiency, which translates to less material required, less weight & thinner armour.
Compatible with both waterjet & Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM) techniques, TitanMade L465 can be cut to an infinite variety of form factors, making it an ideal material for armour systems with seam & edge gap protection features.
