Polyethylene Panels

High density polyethylene is a thermoplastic polymer composed of repeating units of ethylene. It is designated as HDP (for its acronym in English, High Density polyetylene) or HDPE (high density polyethylene). HDPE structure is linear and unbranched; through the multilayer compression process of the panel has different thickness depending of the threat or ammunition to be protected from.

We offer panels from level II to level III plus. The standard size panels HDPE is 1.6m x 1.375m = 2.2m2.

Different dimensions and thickness (layers) are available per request.

Ballistic protection has to be established based on the ammunition to stop.
