Common Types Of Materials Used In Creating Armoured Vehicles

NIMRArmoured vehicles are known to have the ability to withstand different types of attacks. This is possible since manufacturers make use of sturdy and reliable materials in constructing their products. To know more, below are some of the most popular materials used in creating armoured vehicles.

Steel

Steel is one of the most popular materials used in creating armoured vehicles. However, there are numerous types of steel manufacturers make use of. These include aluminum, iron, titanium and uranium. Each material provides specific features that can make armoured vehicles tougher and sturdier.

Plastic

As of now, plastic is also used in creating armoured vehicles. But, most manufacturers make use of the so called “Plastic Metal.” Plastic metal is described to have  50% clean granite of half-inch size, 43% of limestone mineral, and 7% of bitumen.

Glass

Armoured vehicle manufacturers also make use of bulletproof glass. This type of glass is constructed using a strong but transparent material such as polycarbonate thermoplastic or by using layers of laminated glass.

Ceramic

Some manufacturers also make use of ceramic. Ceramic is ideal in dealing with heat penetration. Because of this, ceramic layers can also be used as part of composite armour solutions.

Composite

Composite armour is armour consisting of layers of two or more materials with significantly different chemical properties; steel and ceramics. However, its effectiveness depends on its composition.
