Rolled homogeneous armor – Mars® 190

Typical Applications

Easy processing (for a wide range of thicknesses), while keeping good and multipurpose ballistic properties for any kind of threat

Adapted metallurgical properties according to specific requirements (chemical composition, hardness range, thickness range…)

Excellent homogeneity and reproducibility

Available in different classes:

  • Class 1: for structure with maximum resistance to penetration of armor piercing munitions
  • Class 2: for floors with maximum resistance to high rates of schock loading

Examples of applications

Mars® 190 for targets is the reference used for analysis, control of munitions performances and for their qualification.

Mars® 190 ability to meet all technical requirements makes it a material of choice in the most advanced and modern projects, both medium and heavy vehicles, ships and frigates constructions.
