Developed and manufactured in the UK, Armordon® is a Self-Reinforcing Polypropylene (srPP) fabric that when layered and thermoformed exhibits a range of attractive properties.
Components manufactured from this material are extremely strong, light and impact resistant.
These capabilities are illustrated by the early adoption of Armordon® into the demanding arenas of ballistics and blast attenuation and are now being exploited in a range of applications, some of which are highlighted overleaf.
Armordon® also delivers the following qualities:
Armordon® luggage - A travelling companion for the 21st Century
Armordon® / EPP (Expanded Polypropylene)
Developed in conjunction with a partner EPP processor, the impact resistance of Armordon® with Expanded Polypropylene is available in a super- lightweight, 100% recyclable 3-D form. This combination of material delivers attractive process cycle times and unique capabilities at commercially attractive costs. Applications include orthotics, prosthetics, automotive and leisure with particular suitability for nonballistic body protection, water sports and flotation applications.
The key properties of Armordon® are created when the fabric is ‘consolidated’ under conditions of heat and pressure (Thermoforming).
Thermoforming generally involves preheating the material to between 120 - 140⁰C and compressing at a minimum of 50psi in matched (M/F) tools.
Working closely with our customers we are constantly challenging these parameters and recommend that you contact us to discuss your specific performance requirements and processing capabilities.
Armordon® is currently available to order in three basic colours natural (white), mid grey and dark grey/black.
