Mars® 220 sample 15 mm after blast tests (classified results)

Optimal ballistic protection against mines and IED explosion thanks to its excellent hardness, toughness and ductility properties.
Excellent workability particularly bending and welding for building complex designs used for blast protection. (V shape floor)

Available in two levels of grade:

  • For floors and undersides of light and medium vehicles from 4 to 50 mm
  • For V shape or underbelly of heavy vehicle, from 50 to 80 mm

Mars® 220 has been qualified by the military as preferred material due to its remarkable resistance to blast during testing on prototypes.
