The wider range of Aluminum Armor Plates here in our inventory offer an optimum solution for any kind of structural application - with specific ballistic performance test reports. These aluminum armor alloys allow the design of light-weight, reliable and cost efficient components for light armored civilian and tactical vehicles as well as for heavy constructions like military bridges. They improve strategic and tactical mobility of defense components e.g. by transport aircraft into combat or disaster relief which gives aluminum a comparative advantage over steel.
