Armor & ballistic steel plate is designed for a wide variety of military specifications and structural uses that require armor steel plate approved by all US departments and agencies for combat and defense applications.
this plates are available as Quenched and Tempered plates. The steel is produced to provide an optimal combination of hardness, toughness and weldability. This is a fully killed fine grain steel that is also calcium treated and vacuum degassed to achieve low sulphur levels and a very low inclusion content. These processes insure adequate toughness in addition to the high hardness.
The plates are heat treated in a roller quenching plant that subjects the entire plate to a rapid high volume water quench. The high cooling rate ensures maximum exploitation of the alloying elements to give the required properties throughout the plate thickness. The 3.5mm and 4.5mm RB 390 plates are heated and then quenched in a water cooled press. These plates are not subsequently tempered.
This type of steel has been specifically developed to provide human protection through its ability to withstand the impact of projectiles fired from a variety of lethal weapons.
The quenched and tempered protection plates are used in construction of civil and military equipments which are designed to optimize ballistic performance for protection against bullets, projectiles and shaped charges
