If you’re looking for materials with excellent stiffness and outstanding ballistic protection properties, look no further. Endumax® SHIELD XF23 and Endumax® SHIELD XF33 are ready to stack and to consolidate to plates, helmets or other shaped parts of varying thickness.
Compared to Endumax® SHIELD XF23, the improved Endumax® SHIELD XF33 has an even lower areal density, enabling weight reductions that help enhance agility and maneuverability. Endumax® SHIELD XF23 is supplied in standard lengths of 150m, and Endumax® SHIELD XF33 is supplied in standard lengths of 200m. Both are supplied at a standard width of 1.6m, wound on cardboard tubes.
Made with you in mind
At Teijin Aramid, we know that no two customers are the same, and that each product has its own unique requirements. As such, Endumax® SHIELD can be used for a wide range of ballistic protection applications, according to your requirements. It is ready to be stacked and consolidated to plates or other shaped parts of different thicknesses.
Making manufacturing easy
Thanks to Endumax®’s unique mechanical properties, the pressure needed to produce a shaped anti-ballistic plate is less than half that of other UHMWPE materials, which may require up to 200bar pressure. That’s not all. Because Endumax® is produced in the form of a thin film rather than as a filament, it requires 25% of the quantity of matrix material conventionally used to produce a UD or composite, compared with conventional thin multifilament yarns. This not only offers a significant advantage in terms of weight, but also in terms of the amount of resin required, and the ease with which you can process it. Win, win, win.
