Multi-Curved Composites (MCT)

Multi-Curved Composites (MCT) – in production since 1999, the most common use of this concept is in the Interceptor lightweight body armor used by the US Army. MCT enables the production of net shaped components, produce from SiC or boron carbide composites, resulting in protection against multi-hit of 7.62 AP, 5.56 AP and even 12.7mm AP bullets. Another production method used by the company offers production of large (1,350 cm2) monolithic armor panels used mainly for vehicle protection. The Reaction Bonded Boron Carbide (RBBC-71) armor plate is designed to stop multiple hits from small arms (up to 12.7mm AP) impacting within a 15.2 cm diameter from each other.
