Morgan Advanced Ceramics Sintox ™ CL Mac-A986R Aluminum Oxide Ceramic
Categories: Ceramic; Oxide; Aluminum Oxide

Material Notes: Alumina ceramic of 98.6% Al2O3 content. Well proven as a lightweight hard-faced armour tile material for battlefield vehicles and structures.

Prime Features:

  • Excellent ballistic properties: designed to defeat rounds from small arms up to medium calibre cannon
  • Very hard, and resistant to fracture and thermal downshock
  • Half the weight of conventional steel armour for same level of protection
  • Battlefield repairs are easily performed by unbolting a damaged ceramic armour panel and fitting a new one
Typical Applications:
  • Hard-faced armour tiles for battlefield and security service vehicles or structures
  • Add-on packages to upgrade the armour of existing vehicles/structures and provide good multi-hit capability at five calibre spacing or better
Production Capabilities:
  • Standard tile sizes readily supplied
  • Intermediate, shaped and larger sizes manufactured to order
