AeroLite Armor Anti-Ballistic Glazing Delivers Dependable Bullet Resistance With Durable Makrolon Polycarbonate Sheet Construction

Llamas Plastics, Inc., a provider of high-quality security glazing products, has introduced AeroLite Armor NIJ Level III rated anti-ballistic glazing with heightened bullet resistance for critical military and security applications.

AeroLite Armor is manufactured with MAKROLON AR1 polycarbonate sheet, a product of Sheffield Plastics Inc., a Bayer MaterialScience Company. With this robust component, AeroLite Armor has withstood long and short-term abrasion and field testing to deliver the proven hardest surface of any polycarbonate sheet in the industry.

MAKROLON AR1 polycarbonate sheet couples glass-like surface hardness with the impact strength of polycarbonate. This durable sheet offers dependable resistance against abrasion and UV, preventing yellowing and hazing for longer service life in high-profile applications. Especially significant is the weight advantage MAKROLON provides, as AeroLite Armor weighs 25-30 percent less than comparable products and is less than 2 inches thick. Its lightweight MAKROLON construction makes AeroLite Armor easier to apply and use while providing rugged, reliable protection for combat vehicles, flight control towers, federal buildings and other sensitive locations.

“AeroLite Armor with MAKROLON polycarbonate sheet delivers superior protection in military, industrial and commercial applications where the threat of terror or bullet penetration is a concern,” said Cindy Smith, Vice President, Sales and Marketing at Llamas Plastics. “AeroLite Armor offers exceptional bullet resistance while delivering 75-77 percent light transmission—one of the highest rates in the industry. When competitive products can become totally obscured, AeroLite Armor panels remain visible for a potentially life-saving advantage.”
