Armour plates are available as Quenched and Tempered plates. The steel is produced to provide an optimal combination of hardness, toughness and weldability. This is a fully killed fine grain steel that is also calcium treated and vacuum degassed to achieve low sulphur levels and a very low inclusion content. These processes insure adequate toughness in addition to the high hardness.

The plates are heat treated in a roller quenching plant that subjects the entire plate to a rapid high volume water quench. The high cooling rate ensures maximum exploitation of the alloying elements to give the required properties throughout the plate thickness. The 3.5mm and 4.5mm plates are heated and then quenched in a water cooled press. These plates are not subsequently tempered.

Chemical Composition

The composition of Armour Plate is determined by the requirements for ballistic protection and is not fixed as such.
