Level Up Your Protection With SHIELD by AARG!

NATO-logo

AARG’s SHIELD armor components have demonstrated superior performance in rigorous and punishing ballistic tests. They have proved their effectiveness as measured by the NATO AEP-55 STANAG 4569 standards for "Protection Levels for Occupants of Logistic and Light Armored Vehicles" against strikes from kinetic energy, artillery, and IED blasts.

Life Cycle Testing for Superior Durability

Ballistic impact resistance is paramount, but it’s not the whole story. How will the material perform in its day-to-day environment? How long will it last in the life cycling requirements of heat, cold, and extreme use duty conditions?
 Simply put, ceramic withstands the hits while metal bends and conforms. Cermet must combine the best qualities of both. How does SHIELD by AARG measure up?

Flexure Strength, Compression, and Tensile Testing

Recent tests conducted by the University of Delaware Center for Composite Materials measured SHIELD by AARG for flexure strength, compression, and tensile strength – with outstanding results.
