Shotgard® Ballistic Fiberglass
North American Bullet Proof manufactures ShotGard® bullet resistant composite armor, which delivers superior security against bullets and blast fragments. This UL Listed composite laminate is produced from high quality E-glass strand woven into a special ballistic grade cloth and impregnated with a proprietary thermoset polyester resin binder. The resulting multi-ply configuration produces a controlled delamination when ballistically attacked. Delamination, or separation allows for the bullet to be trapped. This eliminates the potentially dangerous effects of ricochet or spalling (chipping or splintering of the projectile upon hitting a ballistic shield or object). Bullets are imbedded within the plies of the laminate sheet unlike the high potential for ricochet with steel, aluminum or ceramic armor panels.
