BALLISTIC ARMOUR INSERT


Rifle protection at less than 1kg

P1601 is an extremely lightweight, vest dependent, ballistic armour insert, weighing merely 950 grams for Level III + against protection from AK47 MSC ammunition. Made using 6th generation Polyshield technology, it offers enhanced energy absorption and multi-hit capabilities. Its single curve geometry ensures ergonomic & comfortable fit facilitating unrestricted torso & arm movement.

Enhanced trauma absorption, Extra-light configurations

Polyshield+ range of ballistic armour inserts are manufactured using advance materials and technologies. They offer better trauma absorption and are up to 10% lighter than regular Polyshield armour inserts for similar protection levels.

Lightweight, Multi-hit protection

Polyshield (PE) ballistic armour inserts from MKU are manufactured using the best materials and state-of-the-art manufacturing processes. Their special unique construction has been tested, certified & approved by recognized international laboratories. These armour inserts can absorb multiple hits effectively and offer protection from secondary fragments generated by the impact of the bullet. Polyshield armour inserts do not crack and demonstrate better resistance to environmental conditions like UV radiations, water, sunlight and sudden temperature changes. Acids and oils have no effect on them.

Reinforced Protection

Cerazone ballistic armour is a well-defined combination of spall lining, ceramic tiles and reinforced composite backing material. These inserts can be used either with vests or as stand-alone armour depending upon the configuration. The ceramic strike face of the armour destroys the penetrative effect of bullets and the remaining impact is absorbed by the composite backing. The spall lining protects from secondary fragments. Cerazone armour is made of Ceramic, Aramid & FRP and the inserts are tested certified & approved by the leading international laboratories.
