Norplex-Micarta has developed a bullet-resistant fiberglass laminate designed for uses as diverse as government buildings, check-cashing stations, armored vehicles and aircraft.
ShotBlocker is a Class 1A fire-rated material that is much lighter than steel and is installed easily using ordinary hand tools, the Post¼ville, Iowa, firm claimed.
The product can be machined readily and can be surfaced with coverings, such as veneer, to improve cosmetic appearance. It meets several U.S. ballistics and fire standards, according to Norplex-Micarta.
