AGY (Aiken, S.C.) has added a ballistic and blast protection solution called the ThermoBallistic armor system in response to increased demand for composite armor solutions. Targeted to the European market, the ThermoBallistic armor system laminates combine continuous structural S-2 Glass, E-glass and/or aramid fibers to form cross-ply sheets or unidirectional tapes that can be molded to create ballistic and blast protection solutions, such as armored vehicle spall liners and body armor plates. To meet the need, AGY has increased production capacity of its S-2 Glass fiber reinforcements by 50 percent, with the capability to expand further.
