Protection steels

Industeel is a first-class producer of ballistic protection steel plates.

Mars® is a family of steel grades specially designed for military and civil ballistic protection. Its patented chemical composition provides high protection, often beyond technical specifications, with significantly lower weights.

QUIET PLATES

Thanks to our efficient and soft quenching process, eliminating residual stress, we guarantee quiet plates with:

  • No deformation during and after cutting
  • Low residual magnetism

FLATNESS

Our unique quenching press machine gives excellent results in terms of  guaranteed flatness (95% plates < 1,5mm/m) assuring:

  • Easier welding
  • Better integration

TIGHT TOLERANCES

In addition to quarto plates, Industeel offers a wide range of cut-to-length sheets (up to 10mm) with tight tolerances (+/-0,2mm) thus allowing weight reduction.
