WE USE ONLY THE HIGHEST QUALITY, STATE-OF-THE-ART, MATERIALS + MANUFACTUING PROCESSES TO ARMOR OUR VEHICLES. ALL WAMAR ARMORING MATERIALS ARE TESTED AND CERTIFIED TO NIJ, CEN + STANAG NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL STANDARDS FOR BALLISTIC PROTECTION


 
 
MIL Standard Ballistic Steel

MIL Standard Ballistic Steel

MIL Standard Ballistic Steel

Wamar Technologies’ armored vehicles utilize military standard heat-treated hardened ballistic steel in an assortment of thicknesses and types depending on the application and intended threat resistance from ballistic and blast threats or both. Materials are carefully chosen, tested, and certified by independent laboratories to maintain the highest standard of protection integrated with the fewest number of welds possible. The result is fewer potential weak points and faster production at lower cost to its clients.


Transparent Armor / MIL Standard Ballistic Glass

Wamar Technologies’ armored vehicles utilize several ballistic glass types and manufacturers. All materials are strictly controlled, certified, and meeting military standards and applications. Depending on the platform requirements, laminated polycarbonate may be used as well. Transparent armor may be up to 72mm (2.8") thick and capable of stopping high velocity armor piercing assault rifle rounds at close range.

Dyneema®

Dyneema®

Dyneema®

Althought not a typical material used in Wamar Technologies’ armored vehilces, Dyneema may be used when minimizing weight is critcal without comprimising protection. Dyneema is a "super-strong" polyethylene fiber that is up to 15 times stronger than steel and, weight-for-weight, is 40% stronger than competing aramid fibers. It has high-energy absorption and low elongation providing maximum strength and security with minimum weight cost. This weight advantage can improve the vehicle’s performance or increase its payload, so more equipment or soldiers can be transported.


Kevlar®

DuPont’s Kevlar is a light-weight material which provides ballistic resistant woven flexible aramid panels (Yellow jacket or Black Jack) for meeting often diverse and specialized threats. Kevlar can be used alone or in combination with other ballistic and blast resistant materials to provide excellent protection with minimal weight cost. This weight advantage can improve the vehicle’s performance or increase its payload, so more equipment or soldiers can be transported.

Ballistic Ceramics

Ballistic Ceramics

Ballistic Ceramics

Ballistic ceramics combine high energy absorption with light weight and are typically used in combination with ballistic resistant fibers to create high performance protection with minimal weight. This type of composite system can be designed to be significantly lighter than ballistic steel and significantly thinner than all-fabric systems of comparable stopping power. Compared with ballistic steel, it can reduce the areal density of an armor concept by 50-75%. This weight advantage can improve the vehicle’s performance or increase its payload, so more equipment or soldiers can be transported.
